"When the state intervenes to insure
the indoctrination of some doctrine,
it does so because there is no conclusive
evidence in favor of that doctrine."
Bertrand Russell

In God We Trust

but money makes the world go 'round.
 -- anonymous     
    Compelled compliance, license, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity (life / income / property tax, funny money, etc.) the police state's declarations of which inalienable rights are acceptable, state determined commercial health care is mandatory, socialism's caste slavery is freedom, only possession outside allodial ownership is legal, and continual war (inclusive of foreign military adventurism, domestic police 'law enforcement', war on drugs, war on We The People through progressive race protagonists, etc.) is security (knowing They who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety) , are all examples of the above quote's absolute accuracy.

    And if some government doctrine is dead wrong, just throw more money at it.

    (-; jim, on that note, it takes the Republican Party to actuate a failed Democrat Party policy - that's the right and left end of the socialist stick working together against a once free We The People ;-)

    Socialist highways and dams are ruining this country.
     -- anonymous     
    Such has been the case with the 'Common Core' Curriculum, 'Outcome Based Education', 'No Child Left Behind' and what they once called 'New Math.'
    No proven results except that the government manipulates the children into being their guinea pigs at the expense of their future goals and achievements.
     -- Mary - MI     
    There again it is the parents responsibility to deprogram their children when the state wishes otherwise. As my parents followed their conscience, moving us out of state for an education in the formative years. Seeing, they took responsibility to assure a better chance, it instilled also in myself not to trust the transient ways of socialistic government.
    It is so true Mary ! But if the parents are kept ignorant and complacent , usually the children will stay that way also. Taking the hand out, rather than better themselves. It is work to learn. It takes will to want, an education.
     -- watchman 13, USA     
    Too true. Same of kings and priests. The truth needs no propping up. For the most part, most of the energy expended by authorities of all stripes is spent covering up the REAL truth.
     -- E Archer, NYC
