What is your favorite quote?

Over the years on the Daily Paul I saw many cool "what is your favorite song" posts.
How about favorite educational quotes?

Today while searching for some material to post on Twitter I came across this great quote that moved me so much when I was growing up as a teen in at the time Communist Poland:

"In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
- George Orwell

So what is your favorite quote/s?

Thanks!

Larry Kudlow Craps The Bed...

I try to listen (or at least I did) to Larry Kudlow's weekly radio show.

Kudlow usually espouses the principles of free market capitalism.

But this past weekend he completely crapped the bed on his show.

All he could talk about was how we should send in our military over there to fight the ISIS threat which he claims "will be coming here next."

He sounded like a posterboy for the GOP war-mongers.

The 2nd thing he said which pissed me off was that he slammed gold and goldbugs (like us I suppose).

"Die Isis"

Off the Governator's 22 Freeway at the Fairview exit I saw three men down on their luck but not in their spirits. From first appearances, they seem to be homeless veterans who increasingly occupy the street corners and freeway exits; they are opportunists seeking a spare dime from the ashtrays of each passing vehicle becoming the de facto toll collectors of the stop lights. Sometimes the faces change and I'll see a woman instead... perhaps a single mother?

The Four Horsemen

The Four Horsemen

One, two, three, four,
Soldiers marching off to war,
Oblivious of the cost,
Of the on-going holocaust,
Blindly following the hellish lead,
Of each one on his somber steed,
Unthinkingly obeying the lying lips,
Of the four horsemen of the apocalypse.

Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama,
Perpetuating the death and drama,
Speaking of weapons not there,
Creating images of Armageddon to scare,
We're in Iraq! There's no turning Back!
Kill those backward people!
Drop those bombs, my Sheeple!
You'll spread freedom, we promise you this!
So say the four lying horsemen of the apocalypse.

Don't listen to those widow makers,
Those presidential undertakers,
Spread the word far and wide,
Stop this maddening genocide,
Don't believe the lying lips,
Of the four horsemen of Iraq's apocalypse.

Sitting at an internet cafe in Santiago, Chile

You never know where life will take you. I constantly keep making shop owners laugh with my broken Spanish. It is humbling to experience what many foreigners go through in America every day. I will be documenting my trip and I will share at a later time.

Peace and Love,

He Cometh For Thee

When the lights go out,
Shadows all about,
All the little sounds,
Grow by leaps and bounds,
Who will come for you?

When the door doth close,
And every moment slows,
You feel alone and small,
The fear grips you in thrall,
Who will find you there?

Does it matter if you’ve been bad,
Made your parents sad or mad,
Kissed the flag or said your prayers,
Folded you clothes in neat layers,
Do you think that he will care?

When the lonely moonlight beam,
Take on a crescent shape will seem,
The rustling of leaves turns crisper,
And sounds like an Arabic whisper,

Some of our newer (and some of the older) Libertarian minded folks need to self-correct

There seem to be many in the Libertarian "movement" that simply do not know the truth about American history (or world history for that matter) and the founding of our nation/government. Although we all know that the truth is not taught in public school, there is no reason, with the wealth of resources available online, that everyone cannot spend some time getting the mush out of their head and learning a bit of truth. If you do not know at least some of the true history, you cannot understand the problems and/or the solutions.

ISIS Beheadings: Am I wrong to be skeptical?

So I am having trouble finding a video that shows the execution. I actually avoided watching the videos because I didn't think I would have the stomach for it, which the most cynical part of my brain tells me that if this was less than genuine, people would count on that very fact.

However, I was told by my brother that he had real questions about whether or not these beheadings occurred because of the way they were edited. At that point I decided that I needed to grit my teeth and watch these videos since they are being used as a pretext for war in the Middle East.

D3 New forum: source of government power

"God made man.

Man made Government.

Man is not under Government just as God is not under man.

It's unfortunate that this thread has to end here, but it shall. The government as we know it is a terrorist organization that supports and funds terrorism world wide. Do you negotiate with terrorists?

Please make a new thread so we can continue this delightful discussion."

A world is born

Not all of the Earth is old
Civilized and literary
Weary with a weight of words
Tangled ropes of History
Spurs and leashes
Confused impulses
Harrying their dreary bearers

Not all the world is cold
Where rigid doctrines hold
Their gazers fixed
In mesmerized stare
Youthful energies break the mold
And create with power left the spare

Not all the world has reached its end
And stands before abysses
But raging torrents rush from glacial lakes
Haunt the world with fresh promises

Green things send forth hardy shoots
Attack old soil without shame

"SABOTAGE" - World Premiere | Truth Music Video

My music and message is dedicated to truth and hope in a world of doubt and fear. I appreciate any and all who have the guts to think for themselves and do what they can to empower others to do the same. Free people do not need anyone's permission to live and be the amazing people we are. We should thrive, not just survive.

How we got here is just as important as where we are now. We live in a world of constant fear and endless wars. The new music video, "Sabotage" exposes the police state, war on terror and many more important topics.

A Legal Gold Backed Currency is Now Here

I hope I can articulate this accurately as I hope you can imagine, like Paul Revere, yelling to the American colonists "the British are coming!" I am yelling the Gold and Silver backed Money is here!

In my previous post last year I explained that Utah (and now Oklahoma) legally recognize Gold and Silver U.S. Minted Coins as valid US Legal Tender and Money.

However, for Gold and Silver to be a currency you must use it as money. You can't just stock pile because it stays as an investment only. Until you purchase things with gold, it never becomes a currency. Until now (as far as I am aware) there has not been an easy way to use Gold and Silver as money, for both practical and legal reasons. Over the past 3 years we have set up a legal Association that allows you to pay and get paid in U.S. Minted Gold and Silver dollars.

This will be better than Bit Coin because these U.S. minted Gold and Silver are already Federal, State and Constitutionally recognized legal tender and cannot be taxed as a commodity on each transaction like Bit Coin has to.

There is no fractional reserve banking here. Gold is deposited in your account and you can pay your bills, pay your friends, pay your mortgage in U.S. Gold Money. This is 100% real and total on the level legal and legitimate. It has been available for us to do this since 1985 when we started printing Gold and Silver Money again.

Libertarian Picks Up Peters Debate Invitation After It Is Discarded By Land

[The user "scotaboman" is Scotty Boman]

Berkley, MI – This Monday (September 8, 2014) Libertarian United States Senate candidate Jim Fulner hand delivered invitations to his Democratic opponent Gary Peters , and his and Republican opponent Terry Lynn land, requesting their participation in debates with him.

It has come to the attention of the Jim Fulner campaign that Representative Peters has invited former Secretary of State Land to a series of debates that she has not yet agreed to.

A number of Michigan media personalities have claimed that she like they will not as the more Michiganders hear Land speak; the less likely they are to vote for her.

Jim Fulner would like to notify Gary Peters that he is willing and able to debate anytime and anywhere that his schedule permits.

It is Fulner’s opinion that debates open to all candidates on the November ballot would be best for Michigan. “If Gary Peters is willing to debate other balloted candidates, even with Lands absence, it will be better for us all and only further show Land’s cowardice.” said Fulner.
