Terms to Fight Back Against Tyranny through Language (ver. 1.5)

These are terms that I have come to use over the last year:

United States of America -- States of America

Federal Government -- central government

Assault Weapons -- Defense Weapons

The Military Industrial Complex -- The War Racket

The Defense Department -- The War Department

Politician -- Demagogue (when applicable)

MSM reporter -- Demagogue (when applicable)

The MSM -- The Mainstream Propaganda Machine (MPM)

Public School -- Government School (contributed by ThermopolisWarrenKruse)

The Federal Reserve -- The Central Bank (contributed by RonPaulforfreedom)

The Afghanistan War -- The Lithium War

The Iraq War -- The Oil War

Democrat -- Social Welfarist

Republican -- Corporate Welfarist

Barrack Obama -- Barry Soetoro

President of the United States (POTUS) -- Current Resident of White House (CROWH)

Injecting more accurate words into everyday conversation is an effective method to spread the sentiment among the general population. This tactic is even employed by the central government and the MPM.

Let's use it too. I challenge you to use one of these terms today in a conversation.

Please feel free to make suggestions for modifications or additions.

Here's one:
The Government -- A band of thieves/murderers/rapists, writ large.

~Inspiration by Murray Rothbard

Had a similar idea/thread

Pretty much on the same idea.

I like the idea of replacing "federal" with "central", didn't think of that one (for some reason)!

Mainstream Media = Corporate

Mainstream Media = Corporate Media

People sometimes are unaware that the media is controlled and owned by corporations. The phrase 'corporate media' reminds you who is pulling the strings behind the 'news' and that news is anything but fair or balanced.

After I read "The Creature

After I read "The Creature From Jeckll Island" I started adding cartel after the Federal Reserve so like the
"Federal Reserve banking cartel" or "Central Bank cartel".

It is easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled. – Mark Twain
Real patriotism is a willingness to challenge the government when it's wrong. - Ron Paul


I've used government schools instead of public schools for many years. I got it from Sam Blumenfeld back in the 80s.

But my contribution is one I made up myself: FLP

Any politician or bureaucrat is an FLP - Fungible Lever Puller.

No King but Jesus, no President but Ron Paul

Left Wing -- Welfare State

Left Wing -- Welfare State Party. Also, (Big) Business Party.

Right Wing -- War and Police State Party. Also, (Big) Business Party.

Note: Both parties play off each other putting the American populace in the middle thereby pitting us against each other. The parties' playing off each other is members of one party feign outrage when out of office, out of power, in the minority, while the "opposition" party members pass legislation advancing their mission(s).

Language matters. All its parts, including punctuation. Write to convey, because the rest will take care of itself.

Intelligent post, dwalters.

School's fine. Just don't let it get in the way of thinking. -Me

Study nature, not books. -Walton Forest Dutton, MD, in his 1916 book whose subject is origin (therefore what all healing methods involve and count on), simple and powerful.

I like where you're going with this...

How about:

Democrat -- Social Welfarist
Republican -- Corporate Welfarist

IMO, both can be labeled as warmongers.



Glad you're well,

ABBA my friend!

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Gettin' better, man. Slowly

Gettin' better, man. Slowly but surely. Thanks, man.

Good to hear

Hope the New Year treats you well and maybe we will meet again upon a Ron Paul Road.

Good stuff

Free markets = competitive markets (Works great with lefties)

Regulations = competition-killing laws or freedom-restricting laws

The Mob

Thanks... lol...


for public schools

I've been calling public schools a merged term that Thermoopolis and Johannes suggested and refer to them as government-run indoctrination centers.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
James Madison


The alphabet soup agency names do seem to stick, and G.R.I.C. is catchy. ;)

Just open the box and see


Yep, acronyms stick, and GRIC is perfect! It even sounds ugly.

LOL PuRRRRrrfect!

Thanks for that - I hadn't thought of it as an acronym. GRIC from now on!

Great ideas.

Libertarian = Classical Liberal (as opposed to those who identify as liberals yet want to take away others liberty).

Liberal = Socialist.

The Government = Our Government (they are there to serve us not the other way around).

Tax = Theft

Lord Acton, Lord Chief Justice of England, 1875 - "The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People v. The Banks."

Not sure about liberal/socialist

I say this because "liberal" seems to have more of a negative connection to it than "socialist", and both terms have been pretty much driven into the dirt anyway. Ditto "progressive". Regressive, perhaps? /shrug

"Our government" could just as easily be used in the other direction. "Why don't you support YOUR government? You must hate yourself and all Americans!"

Federal Reserve=Central Bank.

Albert Camus — 'The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.'


Public School -- government school


Indoctrination Center...

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!
