.F. K. praphrased: Ask not what your government can do for you but ask what they will do to you and yours next. When government can take everything without spending money or paying for anythinf, are we not slaves? Why will no one in 30 years accept my offer of one hundred pounds of money for just describing the money that our misleaders spend? Why won't you? www.morpix.biz/dc

    A little more: Why should they spend money when all of us will rosk our lives and even die for strips of paper that have not even promised payment for 46 years?

    The unity of freedom relies on the self evident facts, (not the multitude of opinions), of natural laws that point out the reality of freedom based on the respect for each and every individual born into life on planet earth. It is plain to see that the life of an individual human is no more important than the life of cattle being led to slaughter.

    And Thank God for that! Too many among us are complacent sheep and would willingly march off to the "showers" if they were told it was the patriotic thing to do.

    The government loves wars as people readily give up one freedom after another in order to fight the enemy.

    good quote, but oh my, the crazies are certainly out today...

    Yet, another statement against democracy. Freemen united, created arguably, the greatest chance of being free by living harmonious with natural law ever documented throughout history. The statist theocracy's ministers have sufficiently now swayed the once sovereign's uniformity of opinion to be based on a vacuum of those principles that expressed and tangibly offered freedom. Now uniformity of opinion genuflects to compelled compliance, license, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity, and all else that is a tyrant's dream. President Obomunist Goodwrench, with his Czars and Clown Stars's destruction of this great land will be only temporary. It appears that the soul of the freeman is once again awaking that it might unite with like brothers and sisters in freedom and liberty's rebirth.

    ....But it does depend on uniformity of action, which is what is called for now, against the attempted take-over of our freedoms, rights, purses, and choices. We must unite against the insidious threat to our freedom....NOW!
     -- Franklin, Scottsville     
    Which means that our rights are not subject to the will of the majority or the opinions of our elected representatives. Freedom is to be honored and protected above the interests of the mob. Propaganda's purpose is to convince the masses of the authority of the opinion-makers, to excite their passions, veil truth, negate reason, and justify the obvious violations of the rights of the people with stories of terror and anarchy. In order to be free, we must face unpleasant truths, and as Franklin above points out, we must act.
