Better Red than Dead

If anything the last few weeks have taught us that the democrats will stop at nothing to secure absolute power. They are willing to crush a sweet innocent man just to maintain that power. Now the corrupt FBI is set the task of re-investigating the same man they have already investigated multiple times over the last few months.

The high tech corporations are cracking down on free speech and there are those in the democratic party calling for violent protests against conservatives.

The socialists of today are not the red communists of yesterday, but rather the blue democrats of today.

The end goal for the democratic party is absolute power at any costs, to hell with you, me or anyone who stands in their way. Today the choice is clear: vote red in November or watch the democrats kill our country with their lawlessness.

I don’t want weak conservatives

Britain is failing. It’s empire is gone, and the country is mired in socialism.

My mother received a letter from my grandmother a few days ago and in it she wrote that “everyone is starting to think you made the right decision moving to America. Energy prices and the cost of living has gone up so much here, and everyone is struggling to get by”

weak 14

My grandparents are now well into their 70’s, they grew up during the second world war, and witnessed the bombing of Canterbury during the blitz. During their lifetimes they have witnessed their country bombed and broken, only to be ravaged by socialism during times of peace. When they were my age Britain still had an empire, but one country after another they left the empire as Britain went deeper into debt to pay its war bills, and to fund its misguided socialized industries. By the 1970’s when they had grown children of their own, Britain was in deep decline.

weak 8

By the time I was born in 1987, Britain was beginning to raise the lion’s roar once more. Margaret Thatcher was in power, and many of the failing socialized industries had been privatized to great success. For eighteen golden years Britain was swinging back with a fury. The Thatcher and Major conservative governments had well and truly put Britain back on track, and had its finances well in order.

weak 1

Then came the Labour years. Tony Blair promised change, he sought to put right the wrongs of conservatism, and give everyone a fair chance. It all sounded great, and my parents were among those who voted for him. My grandparents now had a string of grandchildren, and the country was still doing very well, despite now having given up Hong Kong; it’s last truly valuable territory.

weak 4

For those who don’t know; the Labour party is socialist. During the thirteen Blair and Brown years, hundreds of bans came into effect, and taxes were raised. Gas became ever more expensive, and house prices shot through the roof. During Gordon Brown’s short tenure, EU treaties were signed and the economy crashed. Red Ed Milliband, introduced ‘green taxes’ and energy prices soared.

weak 13

Now there is a coalition between the liberal democrats and the conservatives, and things are not much better. The problem is that the conservatives are not conservative enough. David Cameron is no Margaret Thatcher; not even close.

weak 3

They waffle on important issues, and don’t stick up for conservative principles when challenged. David Cameron refers to himself as a ‘liberal conservative’ which is why the country continues to have problems.

weak 15

The US has problems with Mexicans crossing the boarder. Britain has problems with Polish immigrants legally flooding the country due to EU regulations. The issues that Margaret Thatcher warned the country about in the 1980’s have become reality. Britain has lost its sovereignty, and it has no leaders with enough back bone to make a difference.

weak 6

To make matters worse, socialist ideals have been so thoroughly implanted into the education system that even my best friend, who attended Cambridge, and whose parents are conservative, now believes that global warming is real, the National Health Service is great, that Americans should have this ‘free healthcare’ and that guns should be banned. You can imagine how upset I was to hear him say all that.

weak 2

So Britain is now swinging back toward decline. And my grandparents have lived to see their grandchildren struggle to find places to live, while two of their grandchildren have sought a better life in America, where their daughter and her husband now join them.

As for living here in the US. I’ve now been a citizen for almost two years. It feels longer. I attend Tea Party meetings, and study the constitution. I’m more radical than most rednecks, at least as far as the liberals are concerned.

weak 12

It upset many of my conservative friends deeply when I refused to vote for Romney last year during my first election. The reason I give is fairly simple. I don’t want weak conservatives. I didn’t think Romney gave enough for me to vote for. The same way that John McCain has in recent months shown that he is a progressive liberal at heart.

I don’t want this country to go down the same way Britain has. I don’t want Common Core, I don’t want Agenda 21. I don’t want the Small Arms ban. I don’t want any of this socialist crap which has all but poisoned and destroyed my once great homeland.

weak 5

I often think about moving back to Britain, about owning a little cottage somewhere in the countryside, and walking my kids down to the local school. I know my wife would love them to have little English accents. But that is just a pipe dream. With as hard as I work, with all that I do, I could not even give them that, because the country is now drowning in socialism. I wouldn’t be able to afford even a small house with average house prices being 173,000 pounds ($250,000) and I wouldn’t want to send them to schools that teach about global warming and the European Union.

weak 11

I don’t even want to send my kids to American schools, for the same reasons. But I can and do own a house. Just this weekend my wife and I bought some more trees for our property. We will make our house a haven for learning and creativity. Our Nieces, Nephews and children of our own will have a place where they can learn true history, true economics, and have a place to express themselves without the prying eyes of the outside world.

weak 9

I want to live in a place like this. I will build a place like this, and I will vote for true conservatives, for true libertarians, for those who truly understand the free market, who understand true freedom. I will not settle. Because there are destroyers out there, and they work at different paces, but they are eating up the world, and I refuse to vote for any of them.

I will build my own safe haven, I will provide the best future I can for my kids, I will remember what has happened to Britain, and I will not let it happen here. I will only vote for politicians who stand on principle, who stand up for the silent majority, who stand up for individual rights, who understand and defend the constitution. I want strong leaders who aren’t afraid to stand up and fight, even if it means doing so on their own. I want leaders who are willing to stand up and filibuster for hours if necessary to make a point, to be heard, to make sure that this nation doesn’t go down without a fight. The more we vote in true conservatives, true libertarians, true constitutionalists, the better off this country will be, and perhaps it can continue to shine as the bright beacon of hope for the world.

Glenn Beck reveals a secret

Last year I became disillusioned with the GOP following the corruption surrounding the Mitt Romney campaign, from the caucuses all the way up until the convention in Tampa.

Now that I have read this article from Glenn Beck, I am glad that things are finally starting to come back together. I knew that Barack Obama would be re-elected by default, but I had hoped that we would be able to move on and upwards with the Liberty movement.

Nearly a year after the re-election of Barack Obama, the liberty movement is in full swing. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are filibustering, the government is shutdown, Obamacare is the train wreck we said it would be. There has been a million biker march on DC, and this weekend the truckers are heading there to lock up the beltway. Liberty is in full swing, and there is open rebellion within the GOP, between the hardliner progressives, and the libertarian element.

GLENN BECK REVEALS A STORY HE HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO SHARE FOR OVER A YEAR

Glenn Beck shared a story with viewers on Wednesday that he’s been keeping close to the vest since before the 2012 election, explaining that he’s been waiting for the right time to say what exactly happened, and what it means for the country.

It all began, Beck said, in what he believes was late August when he was getting ready to do a number of events with FreedomWorks.

“It’s about 4:00 in the afternoon and I get a call from the president of FreedomWorks, Matt Kibbe, and I can hear the distress in his voice,” Beck said.  “[Kibbe said], ‘Glenn, I’ve just been escorted out of my office by armed guards and told not to come back.’”

Kibbe added that he wasn’t the only one forcefully escorted out, and that they had been hijacked, so to speak, by the “old guard” GOP establishment.

“There was a coup during the election, and it was powerful,” Beck said.  “They were trying to get rid of the libertarian, Tea Party-minded power players, and first and foremost on that hit list was Matt Kibbe and his allies. They didn’t like the fact that FreedomWorks was cleaning house in the GOP…that they were targeting people like Orrin Hatch.  It didn’t sit well with the Karl Roves of the GOP world…”

Glenn Beck Reveals FreedomWorks Coup & Parallels With Senate Conservatives

Beck said that shortly thereafter he got a call from the man inside FreedomWorks who had “ordered the hit,” who explained how the whole situation was “really good” because now he was the face of FreedomWorks and people trust him.

“His face never saw the light of day on my program,” Beck said. “I hung up the phone with him, the next day I called board members of FreedomWorks…and we said we support the libertarian voice, and if you allow this coup to sit, we’re done and we’ll expose it.”

“It wasn’t even a week later the board took a vote and decided to reinstate Matt Kibbe as president,” Beck said. “All the libertarians that had been escorted out – reinstated all of them, and then escorted the leader of this coup and his cronies out the door for good.”

Beck spoke about the ramifications of the “coup” for the 2012 election, remarking: “So don’t tell me, GOP and John Cornyn and everybody else, about how FreedomWorks hurtthe election.  You tied their hands during the last election.”

And now, Beck said, “the exact same thing – the same people really – are doing this” within the Republican Party at large — particularly in the United States Senate.

“Anyone in Congress or the Senate who associates with FreedomWorks, the Senate Conservatives Fund, the Tea Party, anybody, anybody is being targeted by the same class of establishment Republican progressives,” Beck said.  “They do not like it when you organize. They do not like it when you choose the candidates that you actually want.”

Beck added that it’s the same reason lawmakers are not truly pursuing the IRS’ targeting of small government groups, because progressives on both sides “want that tool in place…to come after people like you.”

But with the same struggle that occurred within FreedomWorks now gripping the Republican Party, Beck said that puts you in a position of immense power.

“You are the ones that can change the path.  So when I said to you last week, ‘defund the GOP,’this is why I said it,” Beck explained.  “You are the board of directors…Luckily the board of directors actually believe in something.  And when they figured out they were being lied to, they didn’t want their money in it either. They didn’t want anything to do with it.”

Beck has said multiple times that he has no desire to see a third party, and just like FreedomWorks would have lost years of work and credibility had it given up and started over, so would conservatives if they attempt the same.

But that doesn’t mean that there can’t be an evolution of the Republican Party, Beck said, reminding viewers of how the party began.

“Before the GOP was in existence, it was a two party system – the Democrats and the Whigs,” Beck said.  “Charles Sumner was one of the most hated people by the Whigs and the Democrats…so much that he was literally beaten within an inch of his life on the House floor because no one stepped in to stop it.”

“Within four years,” he continued, “Sumner wasn’t the most hated anymore — he was the most beloved man in the Republican Party, and the Whigs were extinct…I’m telling you that’s what’s coming if we stand.”

Beck said men like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul may be the “Charles Sumner” of today, and he has no doubt they will be “the most beloved members of the new Republican Party, or whatever it’s called” in the near future.

I know that many people were upset with the libertarians after the presidential race last November, but many, including myself, are in it to win the war, not just all the battles. Like I said before, Romney was a necessary loss. It’s nice to see people like Glenn Beck starting to say the similar things.

In a few weeks time local elections will be underway, and next year the midterm elections will be going on, we are in a fine position to knock out not only progressive democrats but also RINO’s from the GOP.

Whether we end up infiltrating Republican party with liberty minded candidates, or we end up forming a new one, or renaming it to the capitalist party, whatever happens, we will prevail if we just keep our heads cool, and continue to point out the corruption, no matter how many progressives try to threaten us.

Liberty will prevail.

An Orwellian America

The following post is a good example of where this country is heading. I do not bash both the left and the right for no reason. I want freedom for everyone, individual liberty is my ultimate goal. Please take time to read through the following material and study the graphs.

An Orwellian America

Zero Hedge – by Gordon T. Long

As a young man, I voraciously read George Orwell’s “1984”,  Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World” and Alvin Toffler’s trilogy which included “Future Shock”‘, “The Third Wave” and “Power Shift”. During the era of the Vietnam War, I wondered seriously about the future and how it was destined to unfold. Now being considerably older, I have the vantage point to reflect back on my early ruminations and expectations. Unfortunately, I am too old to alter the lessons that are now so painfully obvious. Instead, I pass the gauntlet to those who can understand and take action on what I have unavoidably come to expect for America.

A FRAMEWORK OF UNDERSTANDING

THE ‘HUXLEY-ORWELL’ TRANSITION

I recently read a perceptive paper by Chris Hedges that would have made any English Professor envious, powerfully philosophical but not something an Economics department would pay much attention to. I found it both intriguing and enlightening.

I have borrowed so heavily from it, that I am unsure where the lines diverge. Therefore, below I give full credit to Chris Hedges and take full credit for all the bad ideas.

Chris Hedges of TruthDig.com wrote 2011: A Brave New Dystopia, from which the following evolved.

The two greatest visions of a future dystopia were George Orwell’s “1984” and Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World.” The debate, between those who watched our descent towards corporate totalitarianism, was who was right. Would we be, as Orwell wrote, dominated by a repressive surveillance and security state that used crude and violent forms of control? Or would we be, as Huxley envisioned, entranced by entertainment and spectacle, captivated by technology and seduced by profligate consumption to embrace our own oppression? It turns out Orwell and Huxley were both right. Huxley saw the first stage of our enslavementOrwell saw the second.

We have been gradually disempowered by a corporate state that, as Huxley foresaw, seduced and manipulated us through:

•    Sensual gratification,
•    Cheap mass-produced goods,
•    Boundless credit,
•    Political theater and
•    Amusement.

While we were entertained,

•    The regulations that once kept predatory corporate power in check were dismantled,
•    The laws that once protected us were rewritten and
•    We were impoverished.

Now that:

•    Credit is drying up,
•    Good jobs for the working class are gone forever and
•    Mass-produced goods are unaffordable,

…. we find ourselves transported from “Brave New World” to “1984.”

The state, crippled by massive deficits, endless war and corporate malfeasance, is clearly sliding toward unavoidable bankruptcy.

It is time for Big Brother to take over from Huxley’s feelies, the orgy-porgy and the centrifugal bumble-puppy.

We are transitioning from a society where we are skillfully manipulated by lies and illusions to one where we are overtly controlled.

Huxley, we are discovering, was merely the prelude to Orwell.

Now that the corporate coup is over, we stand naked and defenseless. We are beginning to understand, as Karl Marx knew:

Unfettered and unregulated capitalism is a brutal and revolutionary force that exploits human beings and the natural world until exhaustion or collapse.

UNSOUND MONEY LEADS TO STATISM

With this as a backdrop let’s explore how Unsound Money in concert with the Huxley-Orwell Transition leads to Statism, the path which I believe we are presently on.

THE CATALYSTS BEHIND THE “TRANSITION”

1- UNSOUND MONEY

•    Removal from Gold Standard and adoption of Fiat Currency regime (in August 1971 during the winding down of the Vietnam War; the first War ever fought without tax increases to pay for it; the beginning of endless ‘conflicts’ and the War on “Terror”).
•    Creation and Fostering of a $67 Trillion Shadow Banking Credit Growth,
•    Massive Securitization & Off Balance Sheet Contingent Liability Debt Growth.

2- POLICY FAILURES

•    Failed Monetary Policy & Monetary Malpractice,
•    Moral Malady,
•    Failed Fiscal Policy,
•    Failed Public Policy,
•    Growth of Political Polarization,
•    Entrenched ‘Left-Right’ Factions,
•    An Un-Governable Democracy.

3- CRISIS OF TRUST

•    Lost Respect & Confidence
•    A Doomed Middle Class
•    A Broken Social Contract

4- AUTHORITARIAN ACCEPTANCE

•    Central Planning
•    Growth in Regulations & Control
•    Crony Capitalism & Corporatocracy
•    Big Government
•    The Huxley – Orwell Transition

CRUMBLING BARRIERS

•    The Great Huxley-Orwell Transition
•    From Manipulative to Repressive

ROADBLOCKS
•    Financial Security through Sound Money            REMOVED
•    Reduced Personal Freedoms through a Crisis         PENDING
•    Reduced Personal Security through a Constitutional Crisis    FUTURE

DRIVERS
•    Globalization & Complexity
o    Fragile versus Robust Systems
o    Interconnectivity and Counter Party Dependency

•    The Productivity Paradox
o    Creative Destruction & Job Creation

Let’s shift gears and consider what “greases the skids” in enabling this transition in our society to occur.

COLLECTIVISM

In The Road to Serfdom, F.A. Hayek showed how governments, supported by a collectivist mindset, always tend towards totalitarianism. Even the most libertarian government thus far created, the government of the United States, has slipped incrementally towards totalitarianism over the past two centuries. This is because it is an inherent trait of a government.

The degree of socialism in the United States increased substantially after the establishment of the Federal Reserve System (1913) and the measures taken during the Great Depression (1929-46) which it created. Ever since the early 1900′s the United States has had a two-party system dominated by ‘socialists’. The Republican Party has always advocated conservative socialism. The Democratic Party, which in the 19th century favored libertarianism, advocates social-democratic socialism. So long as people are divided by Left and Right, Democratic and Republican, the US is prone to being influenced by factions who transcend party politics and from behind the scenes could possible exert strong control over the United States. They could do this by maintaining power over public opinion and hence over the course of government. Steadily, the United States has been travelling down the road to totalitarianism, and many people have not noticed, possibly because they are only looking at the position on the Left-Right paradigm.

Upon further analysis, it is clear that Left, Right and Centre, are all forms of socialism. In particular, we may call them “social-democratic socialism” (the Left) and “conservative socialism” (the Right). They are both socialism because they both share the principle that the government should “run” and “mold” society, by using legal force and intervention to transfer property and personal wealth as part of the political scientists’ process of ‘redistribution of wealth’.

The differences are only in the particular ways the government should run society – the methods it should use, and who, exactly, should be the recipients of government wealth transfers and who should pay. In particular:
•    Social democrats tend to prefer heavy taxation, large wealth transfers to the poor, and nationalized industries, and oppose price controls, regulations and behavioral controls.
•    Conservatives tend to prefer lower taxation, a smaller welfare state, regulated (cartelized) industries, price controls, product  and behavioral controls.

Nolan Charts: Personal Freedom versus Economic Freedom

The modern Republican Party is Center-Right on the Left-Right paradigm. As with the Democratic Party, this obscures the huge range of views Republicans hold on how powerful and how much control the State should be allowed. Their 2008 presidential nominee John McCain, like Barack Obama, strongly favored socialism, though with a Right-wing flavor. Barack Obama (blue circle) and John McCain (red circle) are positioned in the accompanying graphic. Thus, the two main candidates at the 2008 Presidential election represented a false choice – really no choice at all. One candidate, Ron Paul (yellow circle), stood in stark contrast to the candidates, favored by the mainstream media and political establishment. As would be expected, he was neutralized by the mainstream media outlets as a zealot with an unsound political view of America.

THE POLITICAL CONTINUUM

THE EMERGING ROADMAP TO STATISM

Let me now develop and explore the roadmap that outlines the path leading from Policy Failures and Monetary Malpractice, stemming from Unsound Money, to STATISM.
First we will build the outline for the basis of a roadmap on a number of observable continuums.

The more complex that issues become, the more collectivism will dominate and individual needs will be repressed. In turn governments will be forced to be more repressive to maintain control over increasing polarization and diverse views and opinions.

EVOLVING STAGES
When we arrange our various continuums we arrive at the representative grid model shown below.

We will quickly acknowledge it is not ideal, but it allows many concepts currently at play to be shown in relationship to others.

This grid is best described as the social forces at play within Globalization – Financial, Economic and Political.

DRIVER$ – VISIBLE & INVISIBLE
There are both visible and less visible forces at play that are forcing ‘greasing’ the skids in the movement towards Statism.

The roadmap integrates well into our roadmap from our THESIS 2011: Beggar-Thy-Neighbor / Currency Wars and2012 Thesis: Financial Repression papers. ()

ORWELL’S 1984 IS HAPPENING

We are one crisis away from a police state. All the powers are in place. Someone will flip the switch. Whether a Cyber Attack, escalating Currency War tensions or a ‘terrorist’ attack by indebted college youth, it is only a matter of time and circumstance.

Reboot

Boop…boop…boop…beep!

reboot 1

It’s time for a reboot. Switch off your television. Stop listening to the mainstream media. Both the left wing and the right wing news channels are full of complete garbage.

The left wing is afraid of citizens being left out on the streets, and wants to create more social programs and wants to tax the rich to pay for them. Those on the right know that this is lunacy.

The right wing is afraid of terrorists, and wants to continue massive military spending, start more wars, and expand internal security. Those on the left know that this is lunacy

The left bashes the right, and the right bashes the left. The divide gets wider  and more people become polarized.

Perhaps instead of simply bashing the other side, you could work with them and agree on some issues that really stick out.

Raising taxes will not work. Britain found out the hard way; before being booted out in 2010 the socialist Labour government raised the top tax rate on British people to 50%. In the aftermath of this monumental stupidity two thirds of Britain’s millionaires fled the country. The overall tax revenue ended up dropping by 7 billion pounds. Luckily, the conservative led government has come to its senses and has plans to drop the top tax rate in the new years budget. What is even better about this is that while the conservatives have the majority in this new government, it is only with the coalition of the liberal democrat party. These are two monumentally different philosophies working hand in hand to better the country in these difficult times. It is not smooth and neither side always gets what it wants, but for the most part it is working.

In the US the only thing both sides of the isle can agree on is to tax more, spend more, start more wars and to destroy what little is left of the constitutionally protect freedoms American’s have revered for over two centuries.

the evil march

You must clear the wool from your eyes and see this country for what it has become. Neither side is interested in what is best for you. This country is one of the most corrupt nations on the planet, and almost every senator and congressman is bought and paid for by special interests.

Aside from the debt ceiling and other major issues, there is a crisis of morality. We don’t hear about all the killings that our government carries out overseas, and yet we wonder why other nations hate us. We don’t teach the value of hard work any more, and we wonder why union members fight us.

media

Stop watching the mainstream news, and start doing your own research. Prepare yourself for the worse, but hope for the best. You are the difference between good and evil. You are the difference between right and wrong. You are the difference between happiness and and misery.

“Be the change you wish to see in the world” – Mahatma Gandhi

Be the light at the end of the tunnel. Build your life as best you can. Teach what you have learned along the way to others. Be the inspiration that ignites a new generation of liberty lovers, of peaceful warriors, of inventors, dreamers and explorers.

fight 2

The revolution starts in the mind, it starts with you. If you have already swallowed the red pill from the movie ‘the matrix’ then keep tumbling down that rabbit hole. You are getting closer to the truth. Do not yearn for the blue pill where everything is rosy and nothing is ever wrong. There is much evil in the world, and it will be hard to witness once you have learned what is really going on. But you must see the world for what it is if you are to make any real difference.

“Misery is everywhere, accept it with a smile” – Cliffhangers Rules by Rich Hoffman

“Having a sense of humor saves you” – Joseph Campbell

Light up your own life, so that you might extinguish the darkness in the world. Be that shining example of all that is good in the world. Do not let your light fade because of fools who wish to suck the life out of you and use you as nothing more than a mere battery. You are more productive than they could ever be, and when you burn bright enough, your very existence will burn into their slimy hands until there are enough of you that they will shrink from existence from fear of being burned by it.

life 7

Stand up, speak out, do not give up.

“Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” – Winston Churchill

Do your own research, look deeper, do not fall down, do not crumble, once you get past being upset, you will learn a greater depth of knowledge than many will ever know. Keep your spirits up, and know that there are many out there who feel just as you do.

Arm yourself with knowledge, and know that when the time comes, there will be others by your side.

It’s time for a reboot.

I will not fight

Violence is not the answer. War is a racket; it is always started by deception, and there are always special interest groups who profit, while the blood of innocents is spilled.

If you want a war, go start it on your own. Don’t call for a war and then expect the youth (and hope) of the nation to go and die for it.

I will have nothing to do with the next war, I refuse to give my life for a senseless cause, so that others may profit from my plight.

I call on the non aggression principle. I will not attack unless I am personally attacked. I will vehemently pose my opinions and express my views, but I will not attack others.

It takes more courage to be peaceful in times of outrage, than to be barbaric and lash out.

There are many intricate webs of lies floating around to do with our government, our officials and their intentions. There are conspiracy theories, pressure groups and special interests lining the halls of congress.

If you want a revolution, if you want to retake this country, rebuild it, make it more free, you cannot do it through violence. You cannot beat the US Army as it currently stands. You cannot take out certain government officials, there is too much security through the hundreds of different government agencies. But what you can do, using the non aggression principle is make alliances, make friends, spread your viewpoints, agree with other people, get them to see your points of view, build relationship bridges based on freedom. Remember that an army does not fight unless it believes in the cause for which it is fighting. As it stands right now, many security and army forces in the US do not believe in Barack Obama or his policies.

You should continue to point out Obama’s mistakes, but perhaps you should look at your own party and your own weaknesses also. The democrats as they stand today base everything on some kind of welfare; which overtaxes and overwhelms the entire system. By contrast the republicans as they stand today base everything on some kind of warfare; which overtaxes and overwhelms the entire system. Welfare and warfare are extremely expensive and neither are sustainable. Welfare rots away society from the inside, and warfare rots it away from the outside. Our actions overseas make us weaker and actually creates more terrorist cells which will do harm against us. We are not a popular nation right now; precisely because of our overbearing and ugly foreign policy.

If you want to fight the system; do it non-violently; use civil disobedience. You can stop working so much and give up your luxuries if you don’t want to be looted. You could go galt or you could find loopholes and find more tax write offs. Do whatever you can to undermine the looters complex, but do not get into fights with the ignorant, or the protectors of the ignorant. Peace is a better alternative. The longer we sustain peace, the longer we have to teach those who do not know yet how to think for themselves. The seeds that you sow today will bloom later down the road when they are needed.

Peace leads to more trade, more designs, more prosperity and a better future. War only leads to ruin.

I will not fight. I will continue to educate those who are unaware for as long as I can until the fight comes to me, only then will I pick up arms, and only in self defense as a last resort.

An Open Letter to Romney Voters

This is an open letter from ‘Liberty on the Rocks

Mitt Romney could not have won this election, but if you consider yourself a principled conservative, then it is your fault that the Republican nominee lost. Please allow me explain that statement…

Now that the election is over, take an honest look at your candidate. As governor of Massachusetts, Romney signed the healthcare law that was the blueprint for Obamacare, including the individual mandate. Romney also signed an assault weapons ban into law.

More importantly, Romney stands for nothing. He has held almost every conceivable position on every issue, and what he says can be predicted in advance if you know to whom he’s speaking. He is a hollow suit who inspires no one.

That is why he lost to a president with approval ratings below 50% and with official unemployment near eight percent. And that is why a Republican will not be moving into the White House this January.

So how is this your fault? You may not have voted for Romney in the primaries, but the blame is still yours. You, and people like you, should have raised hell. Delegates should have boycotted the convention, and better yet, protested outside of it. There should have been a national write-in campaign for “none of the above” or an attempt to recruit a real conservative for a third-party run. The RNC is known for changing the rules at the last minute – perhaps you could have scared them into rewriting the entire nominating process.

Would it have worked? I don’t know, it depends on whether the GOP cares more about winning the elections or continuity and keeping the big donors happy. Most likely it is the latter, but remember, politicians have a lot in common with serial killers, and Mitt Romney personifies the upper echelon on the GOP – spineless, unprincipled power-seekers. If you keep passively accepting the Romney-type candidates, then that is what they will give you, because they are the least threatening to the status quo.

Romney lost the popular vote by around three million votes. It would have been far better for you and me had he lost by 20 million votes, because it would have sent a signal to the GOP, that no, we are not going to accept any more RINOs. The nation is $16 trillion in debt, and only someone with the courage of conviction to slash the budget in the face of massive opposition can save this country from bankruptcy.

In the coming weeks, you will hear that the Republican party needs to be more inclusive, become a “bigger tent” and embrace horrible ideas such as tax increases. That is a lie. No one compromises like Mitt Romney, he says so himself. Politicians are notorious for changing their positions to suit public opinion polls, but Romney stands out as flip-flopper par excellence. And yet he lost.

The Republican party can’t win by compromising what’s left of it’s values, and America can’t survive more big government. The time for compromise is over, we have to get out there and make the most principled case for limited government and personal responsibility we can, and let the chips fall where they may.

If you believe as I do, that free markets are the best path to prosperity, and that the government that governs best, governs least, then it’s time for you to begin to stand up to the party hacks at the GOP and demand candidates who stand for real principles, who are not out just to win an election, but to change the course of history. It’s the only way we can win, and it’s the only way we can save the country.

I essentially agree with the statements of the above letter, and indeed have mentioned many of the points myself. It is a shame that Ron Paul was shunned at the RNC and that our only choice became Romney. It was more of a shame that most of what went on was either silenced or ignored.

Mitt Romney will soon be forgotten, but the speeches from Ron Paul will live on. The Liberty movement is growing. Republicans need to pull up their boot straps and flush out the progressives and king makers from within their own party, and allow the liberty movement to flourish once more. The Tea Party has already began calling out those who stand against us, and the libertarians are beginning to stand out as the future of the party.
