If you think we can't rant like Alex Jones on matters of principle, then you are still a slave.

"In matters of fashion, swim with the current. In matters of conscience, stand like a rock" - Thomas Jefferson

So many are fretting over whether the message of Liberty will be harmed by Alex Jones' rant on Peirs Morgan, so many are wringing their hands over the patriots out there who boldly state what they believe and leave little or no room for an opposing viewpoint.

People like Peirs Morgan demand that we defend the truth, but it needs no defense, it can and must stand on its own. A truth that requires a human defense in order to remain true is nothing but propaganda. You have no moral obligation to defend the truth, only to obey it.

Do we seek the permission of the masses in order to walk in the truth of our Liberties, to even dare to proclaim them boldly? Must they be convinced before we can exercise the rights that are ours by birth?

I had an Alex Jones moment of sorts at the RNC, and I was even called an "agent provocateur" by many in the crowd for suggesting that we merely upset the programming at the RNC in order not to have our message silenced by their scripted cover-up of Ron Paul's candidacy ( I was not calling for violence, in a very real sense, violence had already been initiated by the party's fraudulent disregard of its own rules and disrespect of its members. I was merely calling for us to make our rightful voices heard, since the proper venue for it had been forcefully stolen from us. But the fear of how it would be perceived or who it might upset came forward to show that many of us are still subjects to these illegitimate authorities in our minds, as we attempt to cower before them and beg their system to recognize our liberties, as if their system were the very source and sustainer of them.

What are you afraid of? Will the truth be unseated? Will a clumsy presentation of it cause it to falter and succumb to a fantasy? Is our claim to our own liberties subject to the etiquette of a fashionable and fickle public or the agreement of a fraudulent party or a leftist Brit?

If they want to argue about who's picture we should engrave upon the gold and silver coins, then by all means, lets be civil and let all sides have their say.

If they begin to negotiate against our natural rights, whatever tone best communicates a solid rock "No" should be employed, their offense is of no consequence.

There is a problem when in the name of popularity our concern for "civility" overrides the truth and betrays our individual sovereignty. It indicates a belief that rights are born from the will of the majority, and are not inherent within the individual. An offended, even rude "NO" properly communicates that there are some lines who's crossing will not be tolerated.

If we want to teach the world about Liberty, lets do it from a position of strength, and not by forfeiting the premise of individual sovereignty by attempting to appeal to the sensibilities of the fashionably unreasonable.

For some silly reason, I have this picture in my mind

Of Boris Yeltsin in Moscows red square, standing on that tank during the Soviet Unions collapse saying, NIYET!

Alex Jones is just one of many.

If we truly believe in liberty, we should not be frightened by the style in which ideas are presented. If you believe the truth will win out, then what is the harm. Other voices have more moderately addressed Morgan and Morgan has used bullying tactics to stop them from being heard. He consistently interrupts answers. He is rude pompous ass, and Alex Jones just out assed him.

Morgan is just using this issue to get an audience; he really doesn't have many viewers so I don't see what the big deal is, especially since many of those who watch him are not likely allies of freedom and never will be.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

I don't think Alex "out

I don't think Alex "out assed" him at all. Shit comes out of an ass, and Alex was ranting truth.

Alex was aware of how they use format to frame the debate in order to communicate what they want. He took the opportunity of the invitation to use their platform, ignore the format, and still get the truth out.

And by the way, I understand that CNN's audience is small, but I still have to wonder as to why Alex began trending on twitter and the videos of his performance went viral after they aired? There is still something about television that gets people talking I guess. Even the exposure on Conan will work in the favor of taking truth confidently to the curious, when they surf on over to infowars, they won't find a unsophisticated conspiracy website styled in early 1990's web technology, but a bold and serious news site, with a large community seriously engaged in spreading the truth about Liberty and the attacks upon it. Yes many of the viewers of these shows are no friends to Liberty, but now they also know that the new fashionable topic of gun control has some resistance that won't simply politely listen to their immoral proposals on the issue.


Truly, well stated.

Just because you can do

Just because you can do something doesn't make it a good idea. You can drive with your eyes closed. You can eat 10lb of chocolate in one sitting. You can yell and scream at people to make a point. But it doesn't make it a good idea.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. - M.L.K

Thanks for speaking up.

The DP is proof that the grassroots support for Ron Paul and his peaceful message of individual liberty is large, real, and not going away!

Great post,

and yes thank you for what you did as a delegate.

The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.
-Thomas Paine

Thank you for what you tried to do as a delegate.

I understand that you were trying to encourage the other delegates not to take any b.s.. Maybe if more had taken a little harder line we would be saying President Paul. I agree with being respectful but we should not be bullied. Alex took his chance to get the message out to a national audience and did it with his usual gusto. The MSM had belittled us and will continue to do so. But maybe Alex woke some people up.
