Enlist Your Wits

This is from Prager Zeitung, Czech Newspaper
April 28,2010

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

"The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

"The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

*As Ron Paul has stated this is a philosophic revolution so it is our duty to educate ourselves. Let's encourage one another by listing ways we are all doing this.

Interestingly the Czech's have maintained their own currency if I am not mistaken unlike their Slovak kinsmen.



He's the symptom of a much larger problem...

That the electorate is so brain-dead, they will actually VOTE for someone based on how good they look and sound.


Not the merits of his message.

If he looks good and says he's going to punish torture, get rid of the Federal Reserve and act like JFK - the people will vote for the man thinking he could never lie to you! Reality is, if they had looked at the "VOTING RECORD" for this guy they would have never selected such a doofus under any circumstances as they would have known he's a liar.

Same for 50% of these smooth-talking insurance agents!!
If they actually listened to what the candidate says, then went and checked out their voting record....they would instantly know they were being lied to & not vote for him/her.

Problem is, people and voters have been so raised on a culture of American Idol they don't think like....CHECKING out a person's voting record is important! Well, now its obvious why it matters. Are we not, the "employers" here? Do the candidates not simply "answer" to you, rather than you to them?

So in reality if we employ someone, don't we always run a background check on them first? Sure! There's NO way any employer would want a drug addict, a sex offender or a racist working for their company - so they examine their record.

Now, in the voting booth it is the SAME process. So why in the heck are the people of this country NOT doing it? If someone makes a bunch of claims on TV, you'd want to see their voting record first thing. Obviously!!

Otherwise, you might be selecting a lying crook. You get the public to figure this, you get constitutional government!

Nice snippet from the Czech newspaper.

I hope that portends more inspiring liberty action from the Czech Republic; it is good to learn of thinkers around the world.
Education is my main effort, for myself and anyone I contact.
I spend hours per day researching and trying to organize and make useful information reader-friendly on my web site, and search for ways to put important ideas into action. It's a life work, a job that will never be complete; but to paraphrase Tom Woods: it is most fulfilling to work for peace and liberty.

I am.

Taking a class at the Ludwig Von Mises Institute. Hayek's 'Road to Serfom', from Thomas Di Lorenzo. Everyone should read this book!!

me too!

A bit sad this Tuesday is the last class. I agree the book is a must read.

Don't get me wrong. I did enlist... as a Confederate Soldier.

I enlisted in the confederate militia of Missouri. I was raring to go. Training was going OK, but my wit would have none of it. Then some of the troops commenced to burning the American flag. I went over & put out the fire. The festivities stopped. That riled the troops even more. By then my wit got the better of me & instructed me to high tail it home.

Orion, my brother got himself a commission as the US Secretary of Nevada. It was a paid position. My Mississippi Riverboat pilot job ended with the commencement of hostilities as the Civil War broke out. My Brother & I set out for the Territories. The rest is history.

My wit came along for the adventure.
