Spitting in the face of tyranny

While Barack Obama keeps his golf course open, he sends his minions out to block WWII veterans from visiting their memorial. The closure of National Parks and National Monuments is nothing but a misguided slap in the face to hard working Americans.

I applaud the Republicans in the House of Representatives for not passing legislation to fund Obamacare. We the people of the United States, the vast majority of us, who understand just what a train-wreck the new healthcare law is, support you 100%. Please keep up your hard work against the tyranny of Obamacare and the backing of it by it’s thugs. We do not care if it takes months to pass another budget. Keep it up, and keep the blame were it belongs; with the democrats and their insane leader Harry Reid.

Barack Obama, you are a fool. You think you can stop people from visiting a memorial to those who sacrificed everything so you could sit in that oval office? You think that’s a good idea, setting up those ‘barrycades’? This little stunt of yours will backfire dramatically. You think your approval rating is bad now, you will be reviled even by your own side in the months to come. So you enjoy your private little golf games, and putting your feet up on the oval office desk, because your days in that office are numbered.

As for the National Parks, my wife and I knew that they would be closed this weekend, but we decided to proceed with our trip to Red River Gorge anyway, as we had planned it months in advance with our friends. We thought that we shouldn’t let a bunch of infantile politicians stand in our way of a good time.

We journeyed into the Gorge on Friday evening, and set up camp at Lago Lindas (as we had the year before) just as the sun was starting to set. As evening turned to night, we found many more stars out in the country, and could even see a ribbon of the milky way shining down on us. Whatever we were in for the next day, the journey had been worth it just for this.

When we woke up the next morning we headed to the Natural Bridge State Park, which we knew was open because it was State owned and operated. To our surprise there were many people visiting the park. Even the Amish People turned out to view natures wonder.

Despite the government shutdown, there were as many people at the Gorge as on any other beautiful Autumn day. We stopped by the Daniel Boone trading post, and I asked the nice old lady behind the counter for a map, while I questioned her on the parts of the park that were closed. She gave me a list of the federal roads that were barricaded, and I asked her if this had happened in the past. She responded that she had been in the Gorge for 40 years, and could not recall a single time when the parks had been closed in this fashion. This gives us more of an incite to the Democrat led Government’s goals. Even though shutdowns have happened many times in the last 40 years, this was the first time this lady could remember such a show occurring in such a manner.

With my new map, and list of closures in my hand, we drove down to Miguel’s Pizza for lunch while we planned out our next adventure.

We decided to avoid the federal gravel roads, and explore alternative sites that we’d never been to. Along the way we found barricaded roads, with vehicles parked out in front of them. Apparently many tourists had decided just to hike along these closed roads and see the sites they had come there for, regardless of the silly barricades they had found. I couldn’t help but mentally compare it to the WWII vets tearing down the ‘barrycades’ in DC.

We ended up visiting ‘Whistling Arch’, and climbing up a 30 foot cliff face to find this amazing view of the gorge.

After sitting down for a while and enjoying the remote view that we had found, we adventured further in my jeep, back toward the camp site. Along the roads we drove along, the sides were littered with cars where people had decided just to jump out and find their own ways to the sites they cherished.

So no matter how much the government thinks it can control and punish its citizens, we will always find a way to spit in the face of their tyranny. The government does not own us, it cannot control us or command us what to do. Life always finds a way, and as we discovered this weekend, there are thousands of people who feel the same way that we do, and were not hindered in their enthusiasm to seek adventure in Red River Gorge.

On another plus note, since the federal shut down was in play, people were forbidden to camp in the Danial Boone National Forest. This meant that many more people than normal were using privately owned camp sites to pitch their tents for the night. So no matter how much the President and his minions wish to inflict harm upon the hard working people of this country, it is ultimately the Democrats with their misguided ideology that will suffer. We the people, and capitalism itself are prospering. So by all means, continue your silly charade. We will not be stopped.

The talk of a tyrant

President Obama made a speech at Ohio State University on May 5th and told the graduates not to worry about government. His speech was that of a tyrant trying to hide his misdeeds.

tyrant 1

“Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.” – President Obama

tyrant 3

Well golly, I wonder where we got such ideas? Is it because of the hundred page bills being rammed down our throats? Is it because of the gun ban legislation and the talk of confiscating our weapons? I wonder where we could get such crazy ideas that the government might be out to get us? Is it because we’ve studied history and know that the Nazi’s used the same tactics? Is it because we’ve studied economics and know that government interference is the key cause of business failure?

tyrant 2

President Obama speaks of crazy people warning against government, when it is he and his administration who have been the worst culprits of infringing on our constitutional freedoms.

tyrant 5

“We have never been a people who place all our faith in government to solve our problems. We shouldn’t want to. But we don’t think the government is the source of all our problems, either. Because we understand that this democracy is ours. And as citizens, we understand that it’s not about what America can do for us, it’s about what can be done by us, together, through the hard and frustrating but absolutely necessary work of self-government. And class of 2013, you have to be involved in that process.” – President Obama

tyrant 6

The president actually said something correct here “we have never been a people who place all our faith in government to solve our problems” and rightly so. Because government is the source of most of our problems. But no Mr president, this is not a democracy, this is a republic. It is built up of individuals, not a murky collective of majority rule.

tyrant 9

President Obama tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. It always has been and always will be, because people like yourself use tragedies such as Sandy Hook to ram tyrannical legislation down the throats of innocent law abiding citizens. We are not paranoid fanatics scared of our own shadows. We are afraid of you, and your kind, the socialist monsters who feed on the good of society, who mock capitalism and its good deeds. Mr President you are a tyrant. You are a tyrant because you act like a king, and feel that you know better than everyone else, but sir, only I can know whats best for me, and only the individuals of this nation can know whats best for them. So if its all the same to you, I’ll be watching your administration and its actions, and pointing out all its flaws and its sinister actions. Because as you said “through the hard and frustrating but absolutely necessary work of self-government…you have to be involved in that process.” And sir, as a citizen, I am deeply involved in that process, because freedom is built upon individuals holding back the role of governments, and tyrants like yourself.

Statism is dead

Here is a great series of videos from True News, on the philosophy of statism. There is a lot of great information packed into these videos. The videos talk about war, fiat currency, fascism, socialism, money, big government, spending, terrorism and human farms. There is a great deal of explanation that goes into these videos, with plenty of information to back up the arguments. It will take a while to watch them all; so grab a drink and a pen to jot down notes!

Part 1:

Part 2:

Part 3:

Part 4:

Part 5:

One of my favorite line’s was in part 5 when the narrator called taxation a form of terrorism.

I particularly liked the last three videos, and found them quite incite-full. How about you? What did you learn from the videos? What is your take on statism?

Sold down the river

When I moved here I was sold on the idea of freedom.

The United States of America as it stands today; is not a free country.

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are not going to save this nation. These two men are parasites. Mitt Romney is not a great businessman; he is a looter of the highest caliber. Paul Ryan is not a great Ayn Rand prodigy; he is a moocher. Paul Ryan practically begged for the auto bailouts which Obama has been ridiculed for over the last four years. There is no clear evidence to prove there is any real difference in policy between a Romney and an Obama administration. Both men support more government, both men will destroy this country.

It is upsetting and infuriating to see people around you who believe in freedom, and yet do not know that they are part of the wall that separates all of us from it.

When it comes to spending and debt; wars are the highest cost. You cannot be pro liberty and pro war at the same time.

You cannot say that you believe in liberty and freedom of choice and be against legalizing drugs.

You cannot be for fiscal and personal responsibility and argue for different forms of medicare/Medicaid and social security.

It is up to individuals to make their own choices in life. If they make bad choices; they should pay the consequences. It is not up to me, you or big brother government to enforce our opinions on others. I do not want the DEA breaking down my door and shooting my dog because they got the wrong house on some stupid drug raid. I do not want my friends killed in some foreign land so that corrupt politicians can make a profit on an out dated fossil fuel. I do not want my wife grouped at an airport so that a corrupt company can make money on cancer giving body scanners. I want to be left the hell alone so that I can live my life as I see fit in my own way. That is what I thought this country was about. But apparently I was wrong. And the upsetting part is that so many people are so plugged into the system that they’ll even fight for bad parts of it, just so that other parts can’t gain control. But you know what? When you fight for evil; evil prospers. You cannot win in a rigged game.

When I first moved here I thought this country had avoided the pitfall of socialism and that freedom was flourishing. Unfortunately I found out that both Britain and America have both thrust themselves headlong down the path of totalitarianism. What a tragedy for all the brave men and women, for all the families of those who died in the last world war who thought they were fighting to preserve freedom and democracy in the world. Well to be fair, perhaps they did, at least for a few decades. But now, things are about as bad as they’ve ever been.

I like my father-in-laws concept (adapted from Nietzsche) about the overman. He calls himself the overman warrior. It means that he has become more than man, better than man if you will, and is a warrior for advancement past the usual pitfalls of life. The overman goes beyond petty emotions and is strong where others are weak. The overman sees through evil and does what is right no matter how great the adversaries.

At the young age of 17 Rich’s first book ‘the symposium of justice’ instilled a lot of great ideals in me. After having read his book, he suggested I read ‘the hero with a thousand faces’ by Joseph Campbell. The top three books that changed my life are Robert Kayosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad, Rich Hoffman’s ‘Symposium of Justice’ and Joseph Campbell’s ‘Hero with a thousand faces’. Between these three books during my teenage years, and some other great books since, I have been on a very different path than most. When you add that into having a great wife and having moved to a different country; it all adds up to a very different and very clear set of viewpoints on the world.

I absolutely adore Charlie Chaplin’s speech at the end of ‘the great dictator’. Every single time I watch his speech on YouTube I get a little choked up. How touching and how fitting it is for today’s global society, and how sad it is that it wasn’t paid attention to before all the killing of World War II.

“we don’t want to hate and despise one another…in this world there is room for everyone..” What a wonderful and touching thing to say.

I love capitalism, and when I say that I mean true lassie-fair capitalism. In its raw form it has brought the world from mud huts to skyscrapers, and from sweaty brick homes to air conditioned mansions. In its true form capitalism helps everyone.

I think the general population of the USA is being sold down the river in this election, in the same way they have been for the last few decades. It’s like the south park episode with the douche and the turd. Which crap do you want to vote for most?

I’m happy to report though, that there is a huge groundswell for liberty in this country. I love it’s history. People here have such an individualist attitude. Most people do not want to be told what to do.

There is a third option in this presidential race, and I am proud to say that I support it. I support it in the same way that the founding fathers supported and gave birth to the constitution.

I will help defend this fragile old document, because it is the most important thing worth saving in this country.

All the other subjects being talked about during the debates are just distractions to get you sold down the river.

Tail of the Dragon; a review

Rich Hoffman‘s new book ‘Tail of the Dragon‘ comes out in one month’s time. It is a fast paced book about a man who stands up to the tyranny of the Tennessee highway patrol and their revenue collecting on the roads around the smokies.

Much like the sheriff of Nottingham and his tax enforcers from the days of Robin Hood. Modern day taxes are looted from innocent people along the highways of America through speeding tickets.

Long gone is the idea of serving and protecting society. Instead LEO’s are now asked to collect extra revenue for their own ‘sheriffs of Nottingham’, and to jail those who do not comply.

‘Tail of the dragon’ is a tale of what happens when one man says ‘no’ to the system, and leads the cops on a high octane chase around the smokies.

The book has the same kind of feel you get from watching ‘the general lee’ flying wildly off a ramp during ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ while blasting its Dixie horn, or watching smokey and the bandit outwit the sheriff on his high speed pursuit.

‘The Dragons Tail’ has these same feelings and the momentum builds up throughout. I like how ‘Rick’ challenges the cops, and stands up for his rights. I like how the system is exposed for how corrupt it is. For me, my favorite part, was toward the end during the chase around the smokies. I held onto the pages for dear life as I stormed through page after page as if I were driving the souped up Firebird, doing well over 100mph, reminiscent of the movie hooper where the car and its driver defy all odds.

The chase storms through the mountains as Rick is pursued by an endless band of cops through the misty mountains, and even a shopping mall!

Tail of the Dragon is a must read for anyone who loves the constitution, self liberty, a sense of being a pirate on the high seas; against all odds, or simply just loves a good car chase!

Tail of the Dragon is now exclusively available on amazon.com

Quality of life

I’ve been back in the US for three weeks now, which is almost twice as long as my trip to England, and yet I can’t help but draw comparisons and get annoyed at how far this country has slipped from ‘the land of the free’. When I first came here I felt that it was more open than England and had more opportunities. Indeed when my wife and I got married we decided to stay in the US because of this very reason. The house prices and cost of living in England far outweighed that of the US. On our trip I was astounded to learn that prices had remained reasonable in the UK and yet here food prices have all but doubled in the few years I have been here.

The thought of moving back is there, but I still love this country despite all its faults, and I’ve already sunk my roots in. To me it does not really matter where I live and I have discovered that I am not particularly loyal to any one country. What I am loyal to though is an idea. That Idea is freedom and self liberty, the ability to do what you want and to make what you want of yourself. That is why you see me supporting Ron Paul and trashing the establishment. This ‘establishment’ has grown like a fungus on the statue of what used to be a great idea of liberty. Lately all you see is the basic shape with the moss growing all over it. I’m sorry that it looks ugly as I strip away sections of it, but truth is truth, and I will show it to the world for all that it is, the good, bad, ugly and the upsetting truths about where we are and what we have done.

One of my old work friends said it best when he said that he’s from ‘the party of leave me the hell alone’. He was for all intents and purposes a conservative and voted so. And yet he did not care that his neighbors were gay. He said that so long as they were not intimate in front of him that it didn’t particularly bother him. ‘What you do in your house is none of my business’ he would say, and that ‘if they could find a preacher who was willing to do the service, I don’t care if they get married either’. This coming from a guy born in deep eastern Kentucky, really has a lot to say about freedom and not being prejudice. He embodies all the great things about the appellation culture. Recently I went to a firing range with him and he let me try out some of his rifles.

As you can see that is another sport I enjoy here that I cannot do in the UK. Though in the UK you are treated like an adult everywhere you go, and can even drink in public places including on trains. Unfortunately here we now have ‘sobriety checkpoints’ which awfully represent the checkpoints of Nazi Germany during its heyday.

So it does not matter where you live, so long as you stand up for what is right, and make the most out of life for yourself and the ones that you care about.

As for me, I’ll stay here as long as I can. I’ll defend liberty in any way I can, and teach others who are willing to listen. Eventually a time will come to either fight or to shrug. I suggest you read Atlas Shrugged so that you can point out the looters on both sides of the political spectrum. There is a virtue in selfishness and you should always take care of yourself first. Never allow yourself to become a victim of ‘the system’ and never tie your own chains.

The quality of life is whatever we make it, so make it a good one, and ask yourself the question ‘what is freedom?’
