"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."
by:
Ayn Rand
[Alisa Zinov'yevna Rosenbaum] (1905-1982) Russian-American novelist, philosopher, playwright, and screenwriter

Reader comments about this quote:
This is one of those thumbs down for accuracy or 5 stars for accuracy. If there were any individuals of integrity, having a true desire to re-establish a representative republic (a constitutionally limiting government of law, vs. government of men where individual sovereignty, law, justice, inalienable rights, law and justice reign supreme), being just elected, their task is almost impossible against the entrenched statist theocracy infesting this land with its devoted patrons.

    Mike summed it up well. Watch out that these newly elcted people don't start saying that they need to "work with the president to get things done". What this country needs is some good ol' fashioned grid lock, and repeal of Obama care.

    History does repeat itself. Very sad, but very true. Will we overcome the inversion? Are we past the tipping point? The next two years will tell the tale.

    The goal now should be to repeal everything the sitting Kenyan has done...and then keep going back through the laws of every administration until we once again have liberty. Or just chuck the whole affair into the sea like our ancestors did. Either way, it may have to be done the same way the Feds are doing business...at the point of a gun.

    Archer, they need to do more than leap from the boiling water they need to tip the pot. We need to throw out the Manchurian - Ok, leave in the pot....
