If Only We Would Have Just Compromised with the English...

Think of all the power our liberty movement could have gained by just by endorsing the King in 1776. What were those silly Patriots thinking???

Please excuse my sarcasm. But, I will NOT follow the way of the Newts, Santorums, and now the Rands and Endorse evil in trade for "power."

So why are people on DP

Saying we should vote for Obama so the impact could open the way to liberty in 2016?! How unrealistic is that?! He'll probably crown himself dictator and suspend all elections before this year even ends!!

And the plot thickens...

"Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants." –William Penn

“Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for Liberty, but it is Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater Measure than they have it now, They may change their Rulers and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty. They will only exchange Tyrants and Tyrannies.”

~ John Adams
Letter to Zabdiel Adams (21 June 1776)

“We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” ~ James Madison

There is no political solution to a spiritual problem.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Then we'd all be speaking English today

instead of our hip street lingo. Whassup!

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

English? Isn't anyplace exactly.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Yep. That's right.

Actually several envoys were sent to Europe and England.

One of the sticking points was colonial debt owed the Crown.

Free includes debt-free!

Maybe if we do compromise and endorse Romney

They will be nice to us and give us a good rate on our fiat debt. wink

Suit yourself.

You're just a drone in this political spectacle, playing the role given you?

Free includes debt-free!

actually not

I'm a coordinator for a meetup group in AZ that has been around for almost a year now. It has been amazingly hard for me to inspire fellow patriots since Rand's endorsement. I was also a Delegate at the AZ state convention and I was able to recruit almost half the delegation from our county that went to the convention. But you can name call if that makes you feel better about what you are saying :)

It was a question, not a statement,

And I don't think I believe your AZ story. Where did you cut and past that from. Wink.

This is my site and I am the coordinator. Feel free to contact me through this site and I will be happy to confirm that I am who I say I am.

So how does a junior Senator from Kentucky affect your team?

Seems far-fetched to me.

Free includes debt-free!

I want my daughter to grow up in a world where she doesn't...

feel the need to compromise her principles for the sake of making friends with evil.

Obamney bad...

I am reminded of an old temptation:

"Eat the Apple, become like gods, judging good and evil."

I do enjoy laughing at the d-evil every chance I get.

So following your logic...

I shouldn't trust any moral compass I believe I have and I should probably get my bearings from the Ministry of Truth (i.e. the unbiased American Media).

The only moral compass you can trust is one you know.

The only moral compass you know is the one you own.

The gods have no moral compass only their judgements on good an evil.

There is circumstantial evidence that this controversy was cooked up by the Ministry of Truth (i.e. the unbiased(sic) American Media).

Many did,

they were called 'Loyalists'' and I believe they were tared and featherd.

Time to bring back the old tradition?

Sure

and maybe set up a website that keeps a list those who have been tared and featherd (and the before and after photo's as well) with an explenation as to why they deserved it. It'd be great watching 90% of congress walking up to the Hill covered in feathers.

More like 99%

Unfortunately :)
