God, my daughter, my country, freedom, peace, music, friendships

Truth and Justice

Me and family and girlfriend. Medical science...science in general/chemistry, epidemiology, microbiology, death penalty, Indigenous people, U.S. court system injustice, government crime, environment, music....I could go on....

I'm the most important thing to me.

Then my children, girlfriend, and friends.

Lately it's important to me that the Israeli terrorists stop, or be stopped, from slaughtering the indigenous semitic people of Palestine. They are sick, demented, psychopathic, and are in need of serious intervention. We defended the semitic people of Germany in WW2, and we should do the same to Israel.

When did common sense become a super power?

My children, thus a strong

My children, thus a strong desire to leave an impact on the world we are leaving our posterity, starting at the local level. To leave in their hands and minds the intellectual equipment necessary to succeed.

I love lamp!

After reading all the other great posts, that's just what popped into my head. ;)

But, in reality... it would be the people I love -- and inner peace. This was immediately apparent as I lay in the ER with my heart racing... unable to catch my breath... not knowing if I would make it through the day, or even the hour. I had to clear my mind of everything. The mere thought of my loved ones would make my heart race faster and make the monitors beep louder. In those moments, it was abundantly clear what was important in this life.

As for the importance of inner peace, that came afterwards as I struggled to heal and overcome the anxiety and post traumatic stress of the whole ordeal.

Overall, it boils down to the basics for me. I don't really love lamp.

Truth, Beauty, Goodness

And this:

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

Not to sound like a beauty queen....

but 'world peace' would be a good start.


One word:


I am Ron Paul

That's easy

My family.

Ron Paul Is My President

It sounds bad, but...

All I have ever wanted was to be left alone. I accept full responsibility for all the horrible things that may befall me without government 'protection'. But, of course, that is illegal.

Love / Service

I strive to serve others to the best of my ability.

Michael Nystrom's fists can punch through FUD.

The pursuit of...

A higher quality of life and a greater understanding of the universe. I could also use a 15-20 foot dawn redwood that has not been topped or creatively pruned by nursery workers.

Living in the moment and enjoying each day

My wife took the red pill about a year after I did but since she did, we have grown SO CLOSE and have REALLY figured out what is important in life. We try to enjoy every moment of everyday regardless of where or what we end up doing. We are also trying to help our 25 year old daughter to learn how to break away from her programed routine of work, buy, consume, and always want more material shit.

The 3 of us have never been happier and we are all learning truth, reality, and everything else...together. Its AWESOME!

The DP is also important to me. Nowhere like it on the net as far as I'm concerned.

Rationality, reason, truth, ideas, principles...

Rationality, reason, truth, ideas, principles...

And anything that supports these.

Such as philosophy and logic, empiricism and observation, research and scientific testing and history, philosophy, logic, consistency, debate, extracting and discussing principles at hand, arguing from first principles....

Truth ,Love and Freedom Embodied - Jesus

Sometimes it means loving enough to show myself and others the truth, regardless of my own feelings about it. Sometimes it means waiting until the person is more open to it, or I can say it in a way she understands and can accept. It can mean that I realize someone else is more suited to express that particular truth, so I refer a person to him..... But it always means I follow in Messiah's steps as best I can...


"Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern." ~~C.S. Lewis
Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

seeing people give...

or help others without expecting anything in return.


Being honest with my self, my feelings, and my motives. Calling things out for what they are.

Well said

Honesty is the path to truth

I think I would have to go with


I would say happiness, health, love, long life etc but that sounds too one sided and selfish in my head right now.

Compassion for those who are having a hard life, hard times, unhappy with their current situation.

Freedom is a byproduct of acceptance - judge not.

here's 4 quick responses

1. A ticket upstairs for me, my family and friends after a long healthy disease free life.

2. A sh*tload of money to enjoy life with.

3. Freedom

4. Shooting rounds of golf in the 70's for the next 25 years

I shot so many "rounds of golf"

I shot so many drugs "rounds of golf" in the 70s
I don't know what the temperature is now. ;D



What will you do without freedom? How will you love without being free to choose? How will you feed your family as a slave? How will you be secure when you are not free to own anything in this world? How will you live if you are not free to fight for your rights? Your life?

Of all that men hold dear, freedom is most important, because without it, none of the others are possible.

Slaves feed their families.

One can also be ultimately secure upon not owning anything in this world.
In fact, the more I own the more tempted I am to be insecure.

I hear what you're saying though, and I regard "freedom" with everything I regard as most important, and the first loss of freedom is in the notion that it can be taken from us. I've learned one thing though, [and in no way do I mean to imply that you are not happy] and that is how to roll my eyes when listening to an unhappy person tell me about freedom.

Agreed 100%

Excellent questions! Liberty is all-important! Long Live Liberty!!!
