    Rep. Lindbergh wrote a great book: Banking and Currency and the Money Trust... A book which was burned and is very hard to find; details the underhanded influence of the monied interest in keeping the nation in debt, to them!

    A radical doesn't always speak the truth but the truth, unfortunately, is spoken by those who are considered radical.

    Right on Dick, prime example of that kind of radical is Obama, I'm guessing he would consider our founding fathers radicals?

    .... as long as the truth isn't false. We too-often believe our opinion of our interpretation of the facts is best defined as "truth." In other words, beware the ego in all this.

    I agree with Dick, Fort Worth.

    Total honesty ? Has any one here, ever been called a Boy Scout or Girl Scout ! Seems the father of the lie, runs the world ? Once a child catches their parents lying, then it must be ok ? If leadership is based upon deceiving the public, once exposed, there will never be trust again, in any given individual or government. Half truth is the same as a lie ! It is a radical mindset now days to be honest. You might offend someone ! O my !

    'Radical' is what you call 'the other guy' for challenging your long held beliefs. Whenever the word 'radical' is used by the press, it indicates the slant of the speaker. Any freedom is considered 'radical' by those that wish to have that freedom curtailed. Those defending their gun rights are called 'radical' by the gun grabbers, and those defending their access to raw milk are 'radical' by the Dairy Industry, the folks smoking and drinking in their own homes without permission from the caliphate are considered 'radical' by Shiites. Politicians and the media use the word 'radical' to discredit the ideas being proffered without investigation. If we do not believe that "the science is settled" we are radicals.

    The quote is right on!!
