You Mean Barry?

Last week I was at a friend's wedding. I had a great time. The people were fun and it was a little different than the normal weddings. Well, later as people started to get drunk, I started to notice a table talking about politics. Of course I was eavesdropping and started to notice they were talking about the whole gun thing and Benghazi. Half the table seemed Democrat and the other half seemed Republican. The arguments were getting kind of loud. At first it seemed kindly debatable but then people started talking louder over other people. I started to think... "yeah the liquor is kicking in". I didn't want to get involved because it was my friend's family. But I eventually did later.

Well, funny part was when some one was saying Obama this, Obama that. I walked by and said, you mean Barry right? They all started to laugh. lol. I had no idea if they were laughing at me or laughing at just what I said. Later as the night started to get crazier, people were getting wasted. I happened to walk over again and noticed they were still talking about it. They mentioned about some lady that is going to run against Christie here in Jersey. I jumped in the conversation and said you mean Barbara Buono? Some lady agreed and said, "Yeah, I think so." I started to explain to them she is good friends with Corzine. The man who stole all your money and has no idea where it went. I told them I prefer Christie winning because then I know his fat ass won't run for President. I told them to always look at a third option nowadays. We all know Jersey is corrupt and their is almost no way around it until we get a mass awaking. Another person responded with a smart remark.

The man - "What are you, some Libby."
Me- - "What the heck is a Libby"
The man - You know those crazy Libertarians that want to smoke pot all day". Let me bet, your the guy that owns that car outside with the Ron Paul Bumper Sticker?
Me - Yes, as a matter of fact I am, but I don't smoke. My main concern is getting rid of the Federal Reserve and focusing on having less government. And so what if people want to smoke pot, some of you seem a little unstable tonight and you are drinking. Should we make that illegal too? Oh wait, that didn't work, right?
The Man - I can't debate with you guys.
Me - Is it because we win all the time?
The man - Shut up and laughed.
The man - This is funny because we started this whole conversation because me and my wife saw the bumper sticker as we walked in.
Me- Yeah, I like to remind people on what they missed out.

I talked with them for a little bit longer explaining them to look more into Ron Paul. I told them how corruption went on during the Primary. I think I woke up the table. They ended leaving, agreeing with me on almost everything, Democrats and Republicans. I even gave them links to sites like this one! It was a fun night! It feels good to be awake!

We have to keep educating the sheeple. It is the only way we can win.

This is

a good point.

People are hearing more and more about liberty minded people and the liberty movement, but they have a misunderstanding of it. They think it's only people wanting to smoke pot or whatever.

It was perfect that you cleared that up and also said we win debates because we do! We usually have a better understanding of the issues and our position is Constitutional, which Americans are for even if they don't know it when it comes down to it. Freedom is popular and ordinary people want peace and prosperity.


Never heard that. He must of been a "Polly".

A Polly is parrot who is only capable of repeating short sentences or tag lines but lacks any deep understanding if issues, the world or life in general.

Polly Dems and Polly Rs are really the same politically but cannot grasp the fundamental understanding that would bring this realization.

Yep - you were talking to Polly.

The real powers are looking to cull the herd one way or another.

The meme -

Ron Paul --> pot smoking

Wow...the MSM did a good job with that one BUT it certainly shows how shallow the average semi-conscious American is and how easily they are manipulated by talking points rather than real facts.

I wonder if their heads would explode if they actually sat down and thought about something deeply...came to logical conclusions and realized God gave them a brain that actually works.

LOVE the Ron Paul sticker as a catalyst.
THAT rocks!

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

lol: LOVE hearing the "libertarian mindmeld" in action!

never ceases to amaze how r3VOL can always 'logic them to death!'


of course, their only remaining rebuttal is never admit defeat, but laugh, evade/shrug off, or make non-sequitur nominally 'witty' quips; all signs of realizations that they've been repeating what they've been told to say...for the majority of their adult lives.

many red-pill seeds laid: that's what's important, no?

glad you had fun, though.

Every one at the table started to get it towards the end of the night as we talked more. The one man was kind of ignorant, but he couldn't debate with me. They really took me serious. They all seem concerned about how the Country is turning out to be.

too bad they will be fooled

too bad they will be fooled again next election cycle. those idiots.

stupid sheep. baaahhhhh


We gotta

Think positively or nothing is going to change buddy.

That Wench Ann Coulter

...perpetuated the nonsense idea that the only thing Libertarians are interested in is de-criminalizing pot. Well it looks like your drunken acquaintences took the bait.

Talk about marginalizing the best philosophical movement in modern politics. She needs to be slapped into next week.

Make it LAST WEEK, wouldja?

Maybe if we can keep slapping her back, she'll stop making a mess of the future.

I Know Right?

I am in my mid 20s too. I get that a lot from people. I guess because I am a young Libertarian. But yeah, Blame her!

i'm sorry about that

i'm sorry about that negativity

i just got the image you gave me of stupid, drunk, and relatively successful people who didn't have to sleep on the streets, because they had the pass.

it's like idiots, those left, still have jobs, so those that can do anything about it, are the ones still sleeping.

what will happen ?

i'm sorry for my negativity. i guess i just wanted to be really cynical because you brought up weddings in new jersey and idiotic conversations that people repeat because they've watched the same conversations being repeated on the television.

did they ever want to just shut up and read books !!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????



Weren't all that stupid. But yes, I can tell they were TV watchers. It is hard to talk to people about Politics some times. These people listened so I thought of that as a mini victory.

why blame her ? the only

why blame her ? the only idiots i see are the ones repeating what the news tells them to repeat.

it's like some f**kin sick programming. who knew it would be so easy to manipulate people ? makes it kind of a joke. even if they did agree with you, they could just as easily sink back into the programming they've been receiving since children.

humans are quite the miracles


I was Kind

If joking. Their is way more to blame than just her.

I think people do sink back into the programming, but

it's a shorter trip back out. Once you've had a problem reconciling two competing conceptions of the truth, it'll only go away if you don't think about it. But ounce you've heard it, even if you oppose the idea, you can't unhear it. Every time a similar topic comes up, you'll have to think about it. It's the pervasive nature of ideas, and if it holds water, people will start to accept them. I kind of think this is why it's even worthwhile talking to belligerent people. It won't be fruitful at the time, but the belligerency is probably just a shortcoming in their ability to express their ideas or a coping mechanism to deal with the double-think their bombarded with in the first place. If you can convey something in a palatable manner (rationally and without getting belligerent yourself), you can almost guarantee the person will think about it again, and probably by themselves, outside a vulnerable atmosphere and without prejudices of doubt or fear or anger. I can remember some of the times it happened to me. I think it happens to all of us.


This is how we awaken Liberty to our neighbors and friends! Keep it up brother. Like ninja said, always keep calm and don't show frustration. I have to remind myself of that at times... :P

Cool story.

Keep your eye on the prize! - Ending legal tender laws in order for the Federal Reserve System to self-destruct is of the upmost importance.

Some times it is hard to keep calm lol. I think being at my friends wedding made me act more respectful. Some times my debates with others don't end too well, but lately it has been Golden!

It is difficult but very important

because "those" people know that when their views are challenged (or exposed) they must mock you rather than make the case for their views. It's a very old yet effective tactic used to quickly discredit you if they can make you lose your cool. The Wedding was a perfect learning opportunity for you to see the difference in result when you were almost "forced" to remain respectful. But you can have that self control in any situation, wedding or not.

This state of calmness is how many of these "elites" got to the positions of success and power by standing firm in their convictions and never showing weakness of character. It's time to learn from them and use it to our advantage. Napoleon Hill's "Laws of Success" series (you can "find" audiobooks online) is a great source of information not only on how to succeed in your own life but also how these people of power got there themselves and why it is so important for them to form groups or clubs. Anyways, that's a topic for a different thread, but keep it up and keep calm and confident as you were!

Feels f***in' great!

so many people are waking up now. It's finally reaching close to home. It's great when you get so much of the bigger picture and can just spot the BS now in a conversation. You just got to set them right side up again. Honestly, there is no movie, or tv series or video game that is as exciting as what we're all living right now. We should also all take a moment and pat ourselves on the back for not losing our everlovin' minds.

The consciousness shift, I believe, is one of global awareness. Realizing we are all equal human beings before we get divided up into sub categories of cultures herded onto patches of land separated by invisible lines drawn on something called a "map" which represents the land on this round rock spiralling around a giant nuclear ball of fire as it flies through space, itself spiralling out from the centre of the galaxy always being in a completely new place in every moment... is a trip man!!

Sure, we got to deal with these primates in suits who are stuck in old industrial complex mentality where there is hardly any kind of awareness. "Take care of your own, and f*** everyone else along the way", is not a globally conscious mission statement in business or in life.

Well done on your part!

Always remain calm and never show anger or frustration. You tap into all that you now Know and the words that need to be spoken just flow (didn't mean that to rhyme, but I like!).

TwelveOhOne's picture


Eloquently written. I love visualizing space. And the awakening is amazing, I'm seeing it in others as well. I agree about the TV/movie/game -- I no longer watch "new" TV, preferring to watch old classics (we're working through Star Trek TOS, and plan to watch all of it over time), and have a Netflix subscription but don't watch any of the movies (just Star Trek, for now). All news comes from this site, essentially. And I woke up intending to play some Halo 4 today but there are just so many more interesting things to do, like respond to this wonderful comment in this wonderful post, work on my garden, and just breath deeply and be happy.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Well, I appreciate that very much, friend.

I too was going to pop in some GTA4 and waste some of the day but my wife and I are going to go for a motorcycle ride instead since the sun is shining without a cloud in the sky :) There's nothing wrong with a bit of entertainment here and there but often we can get a bit consumed in it while the beauty of the world passes us by. Thanks for the good vibes! Right back at ya!
