"The idea that you can merchandise candidates for high office like breakfast
cereal is the ultimate indignity to the democratic process." -Democratic
candidate Adlai Stevenson, 1956
"...It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.."
"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is
the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one
*makes* them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible
for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens?
What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither
be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted-and you create a nation of law-breakers-and
then you cash in on the guilt." * Ayn Rand, "Atlas Shrugged"
earth does not belong to man, Man belongs to the earth. All things are connected,
like blood which connects one family. Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the
children of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life. He is but a strand
in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself. attributed to Chief
quote from Alister Crowly: "The more certain
you are, the more certain it is that you have placed a limitation on your mind. "
The only proper propose of a government is to protect man's
rights, which means: to protect him from physical violence.,...,The only proper functions
of government are: the police, to protect you from criminals; the army, to protect
you from foreign invaders; and the courts, to protect your property and contracts
from breach or fraud by others, to settle disputes by rational rules, according to
objective law." ---John Galt"
If you choose, not to decide, you

a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others. . .they
send forth a ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different
centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down
the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." --Robert F. Kennedy

"The whole aim of practical politics is to
keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless
series of hobgoblins." .. -- H.L. Mencken, 1923"

Only after the last tree has been cut down.
Only after the last river has been poisoned. Only after the last fish has been
caught. Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten."
Cree Indian Prophecy"
Prohibition was introduced as a fraud; it has been
nursed as a fraud. It is wrapped in the livery of Heaven, but it comes to serve
the devil. It comes to regulate by law our appetites and our daily lives. It
comes to tear down liberty and build up fanaticism, hypocrisy, and intolerance. It
comes to confiscate by legislative decree the property of many of our fellow citizens.
It comes to send spies, detectives, and informers into our homes; to have us arrested
and carried before courts and condemned to fines and imprisonments. It comes to dissipate
the sunlight of happiness, peace, and prosperity in which we are now living and to
fill our land with alienations, estrangements, and bitterness. It comes to bring
us evil-- only evil-- and that continually. Let us rise in our might as one and
overwhelm it with such indignation that we shall never hear of it again as long as
grass grows and water runs."
Roger Q. Mills,1887:"
is no brief candle for me. It is sort of a splendid torch which I have got hold
of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing
it on to future generations"-George Bernard Shaw

for the people. They pay is actually not so hot, but the benefits are great.
And you get to meet a lot of famous people, pardon all your friends, go on great
vacations, always get good seats, and every now and then toast another country
that pissed you off.... JP
