Yes, even some govt workers are beginning to wake up.
Elections are temporary, but awakened minds? ETERNAL!
That, is how we are already winning!
No Long Faces, as our Gray Champ loves to tell YOU the R3mnants!

Writes a friend:
As I was returning from Nicaragua this past weekend (a strange little country, where the government, although purportedly socialist, is also so poor and weak that it can't really do anything about its dreams of becoming the Handicapper General), I was making my way through the "after-you-go-through-customs-and-have-to-get-re-searched-by-TSA" screening at the Miami airport.
As I unloaded all my junk onto the X-ray conveyor, a young TSA "officer" noted a book in one of my bins. He picked it up and said, "What is this, the biggest book ever?"
It was the bound 4-volume set of "Conceived in Liberty," by Murray Rothbard (purchased from the Mises Store, of course).
"No, I said, but it is one of the best."
"What is it about?" he asked.
"It's about liberty, and how throughout history all police states, like the one you are working for now, never really last because of the desire of men to be free. Read it," I said. "You will probably quit your job."
He looked at me through narrowed eyes, as he watched me gather my things on the far side of the X-ray machine. "Lucky me," I thought, "I am already through security. Otherwise I probably would have spent the next hour being felt up by some latter day Inquisitor."
But I shouldn't have worried. As I bent down to pick up my last item and started to walk out, I heard a whisper in my ear. It was the TSA fellow.
"It all started with the damn Federal Reserve, you know," he said.
