    And causes should constanly be adjusted to the truth, rather than acting rabid and fanatical, without regard to objective truth, only hanging their hat on subjective truth.

    To get any truth from the Obama, Pelosi,and Reed axis, just listen to what they say and believe the opposite.

    The Truth does not need injunctions to keep people from looking into its past. The truth can stand up and say "This is what I am". Obama can not.

    Thus we must presume that in America today, injustice reigns. Whether an Ass or an Elephant, we haven't heard much truth from these party men in decades. It is a sad state of affairs that only the best liars and forgers have a chance at political office -- people don't elect real people telling it like it is (it's too depressing), they elect phonies that promise them something for nothing. The only 'hope' for 'change' I support is that we as a People start facing facts and downsize DC immediately. But so far there does not seem to be a way to vote for anyone that isn't part of the establishment.

    Obama, Pelosi,Reid and the rest of the gaggle of Progressives would not know truth if it walked up and slapped them in the face.

    I cannot argue with that particular, possibly out of context, quote. However, before we get too "gaa-gaa" over Gandhi, a little research will reveal him to be a communistic type of emeny of true liberty. He certainly does not belong in the company of such freedom heroes as Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, James Madison, and a few others we all know.

    Wise words, that I always took in my heart. So sad that so many today explicit try to deny this, using well intended causes as excuses to silence debates or even the truth itself.

     -- Felipe, São Paulo     
    Trump is as close as we have ever gotten to a non-establishment president.  It's not easy for one man against the statist machine of power, the People must also be in accord.  Let's see what Trump does with the Fed. ;-)
