Educate and inform the whole mass of the people

Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.

-- Thomas Jefferson

This is Ron Paul's message to us as well.

G.Edward Griffin; "If America

G.Edward Griffin; "If America is to remain a free nation, its citizens must become far more politically educated than they are at present." I believe it is too late. The Road to Persia which was the long term goal of the former PNAC is near competition. " If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be...if we are to guard against ignorance and remain free, it is the responsibility of every citizen to be informed. Thomas Jefferson. Had America followed this advice and warning, we would see a completely different America than the one we have today.

Liberty sells, but who's buying?

I'm a big free market believer. I believe in the principle of supply and demand. I believe if there is a demand for liberty the market will supply liberty. For example, there was once a demand for a daily news and information website that could bring all of the worlds Ron Paul campaign news together in one convenient location. The market supplied us with the Daily Paul. I buy the service the Daily Paul provides.

Do we need more books about liberty, Constitution, and Austrian free market economics, and more authors of these subjects? Then buy a book from Tom Woods, Lew Rockwell, Thomas Delorenzo, Andrew Napolitano, Ron Paul, Michael Badnarik, Mary Ruwart, Penn Gillette, Jesse Ventura, whoever.

Do we need more music, entertainers, tv, and movies about liberty, constitution, and free market economics? Then buy merchandise and music and DVD's from Jordan Page, Tatiana Moroz, Aimee Allen, Doug Stanhope, David Nickerson, film and documentary producers, etc.

I'm all about making individual liberty and non-aggression popular in the mainstream culture.

Shameless plug

Ignorance: the real enemy; education: our best weapon.

This past year has been eyeopening to me. It was discussing the candidates and their respective platforms with friends and acquaintances when it really hit home how little some people know about the issues - even concerning the platforms of those whom they support. But it wasn't only that. For instance, buying Kettle chips at a local market, I noted how the package highlighted that they were made from "non-GMO ingredients." I was asked what "GMO's" were. There have been too many things to mention. But it's heartening to remember that, via word of mouth, knowledge grows exponentially.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
~ John Muir

The very words that inspired...

The Educators of Liberty back in 2008.

I might add that Jefferson wrote the true corrective to abuses of constitutional power:

"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society, but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is, not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education.
This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power." - Thomas Jefferson

BIG BUMP-This is what we MUST do-This is how we WIN

We cannot fail if we focus on this one task. It is as simple as speaking w/ our fellow citizens like we want others to speak w/ us.

But-it is a SLOW process-Until-the truth becomes conventional wisdom.

"You are a den of vipers and thieves."

I mean to rout you out!

-Just because you are among us, does not make you with us

-The door is wide open, anything can slither in

One person, one door, and one

One person, one door, and one speech at a time.

Dont ever stop

Act
Speak and inform!

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.
