Hmmm...

Statistettes using reverse psychology, no doubt.

States are for chicks

1:10 haha.

Funny stuff, I think most of us have said some of these things at some point or another. It definitely made me laugh, but at the end of the day I think everyone should talk about liberty however the hell they want to.

LOUD NOISES.

Thanks for sharing

Made me laugh. I've said a few of those things. Live and learn.

You thought it was stupid

because you know you've said those exact words to people before! C'mon, be honest now...

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Good Effort

Yet I have had always had a difficult time understanding fast talking women, I just zone out. I am not really sure what I just viewed here. I did get the idea that it is best to keep from acting hard core.

Hah!

Funniest thing ever!

What

Else Am I going to bring up? Those issues need to be brought up to people. I don't get this video. It is funny, but it really makes no sense.

I'm kinda with you on this

...

Stupid.

Stupid.

You nailed them on facebook, right?

Dang that comment bar is hard to find!

Well, now I know what I'm doing wrong

Cute and funny

Now she needs to do a 'how to'.
Seriously...I'm kind of a dick, and could use the help with the delivery!

Nothing wrong with the message OR the messenger!!

The only thing is, government school, the newspapers and the TV got there first. There is a lot of conditioning to overcome.

On a side note, when good looking chicks start thinking men in tri-cornered hats are sexy, we will have arrived.

Leges sine moribus vanae

There's something VERY wrong with the Anarchist message

There's something VERY wrong with both the Anarchist message and the wannabe messengers. You not knowing that is proof enough for me.

I'm far from perfect, and so are my ideas.

If you can't say the same about yourself and your ideas, than you're an idealist. I know there's problems with a Constitutional Republic. When what the people beg for is injustice, that's what they're going to get.

I at least give the people a chance to control their own fate through debate and elections. In Anarchy, a very small minority can buy and use collective violence, but not to defend liberty, to take it. An Anarchist wants to replace government with their wallets, and I say they're smart, so the people they think will end up owning everything through collective violence is labor.

I say Anarchists are Communists masquerading as advocates for liberty. What's the alternative to Communism replacing Anarchy? Corporate Armies? No. The Anarchist message is a bunch of BS.

Strawman much? Who said anything about anarchy?

You make a mean non-sequitur as well:
"There's something VERY wrong with both the Anarchist message and the wannabe messengers. You not knowing that is proof enough for me."
I suppose there's an implied insult in that statement as well; always good practice when trying to win friends and influence people.

strawman
non-sequitur
ad-hominem

All in one post. Impressive.

Look again.

Libert("A"-Anarchist)rienne Cathy

She knows what she is, and it sure isn't a Libertarian. Do you? Anarchists aren't Libertarians. Anarchists are WORTHLESS to liberty. Why not just call herself Anarchist Cathy?

"Know thyself and your enemy, and you will win all battles; know thyself and not thy enemy, for every victory there will be a defeat; know neither yourself nor your enemy and you'll be defeated all the time." Sun-Tzu, The Art of War

PS I'm not trying to win your friendship, and the truth is what does my influencing. I trust in your good judgement to recognize an Anarchists true nature.

'Truth' as in

The gal's name starts with an A, proving that she is an anarchist? or The fact that I don't know that people whose names start with A are anarchists is proof enough for you?

Just to clarify - Did you mean to imply that ALL people whose name starts with A are anarchists, or only this particular gal? Also did you mean to imply that regarding ALL things unknown to me, this fact is proof enough of these things being true, or does apply only to my knowledge of anarchists?

Leges sine moribus vanae

Well There IS something wrong

with the message/messenger if it's not working!!

Regardless, this is meant to be a joke.

If your first thought is to bash these girls on FB because you didn't find it funny, you may want to rethink how you treat people.

Voted up.

This is funny and kind of cute, as auto-parody.

Making Hayek's point, I suppose it's much funnier, lighter than this, anyway:

Same truth is suggested. Much less funny.

Voted your post up. I do agree it's a good idea to try use either angle of view, if we're to spread the message.

Peace.

Don't Give me Liberty, I'll get up and get it myself!

Ron Paul, Statesman or Statist?

"STATESMAN" noun

1) one versed in the principles or art of government; especially : one actively engaged in conducting the business of a government or in shaping its policies
2) a wise, skillful, and respected political leader

"STATIST" noun

1) : an advocate of statism

"STATISM" noun

1)a concentration of economic controls and planning in the hands of a highly centralized government often extending to government ownership of industry

Conclusion, a Statesman CAN be a Statist, but those who advocate for limited central authority aren't Statists. Statists HATE sound money, and want fiat garbage that can be debased in order to plan, fund, and ultimately own all industry and thus productive human labor. Commies want a central bank for a reason, and for the same reason a Fascist wants a central bank, to centralize and own industry.

An Anarchist can become their own worst enemy by declaring anybody who isn't an Anarchist a Statist.

Ron Paul has suggested many times that he is a voluntaryist.
