"To require conformity in the appreciation of sentiments
or the interpretation of language,
or uniformity of thought, feeling, or action,
is a fundamental error in human legislation --
a madness which would be only equaled by requiring all men
to possess the same countenance, the same voice or the same stature."
Josiah Warren
(1798-1874) American individualist anarchist, inventor, musician, printer,author
Equitable Commerce, 1855

    Ahh yes, welcome to the statist theocracy with its extremely corrupt executive, judicial, legislature, and media branches. Just the other day I was reminded how openly corrupt the courts are and, how all legislation put out by such courts must be in goose step followed (or the unconstitutional rule of man - he how has the most guns - doles out severe consequences).

    Obama and his socialist buddies would like to make us all equal, that is equally poor and miserable. People are losing thousands of jobs daily and he blathers on that things are getting better.Even Anonymous, Reston, should be smart enough to see through Obamas lies. Maybe not.

    All of the quotes I have seen from you are fabulous. I do spread them around to friends and on a Patriot forum (often mis-charaterized by the media as militia types, white supremesists, skin head neo Nazi's and our own government. This is a great service you are providing! Thank you.

    Philosophy of the "individual sovereign" runs contrary to the desires of communist/socialist utopia agendas.
