I hear there is a big bully in a state called "Far Far Away"

I hear he has rounded up a gang of cold blooded killers and they are killing anyone who gets in their way. Fortunately, we have a wise old leader in our town called John McFool who has come up with a brilliant plan to keep my family and I safe. Even though I am heavily in debt and on the verge of bankruptcy, he says I should borrow the money to make the long trip to Far Far Away, and I should walk right up to the bully and shoot him in the head. He says that will make me safer. He says the bully will be dead and not one gang member will want to retaliate against me or my family because I shot their leader in the head. He says there is no reason to expect any gang members to follow me back to my town and kill my family with a bomb.

And if the gang elects a new leader after I shoot the current one, John McFool says I will have to borrow more money again next year and make the trip to Far Far Away and shoot the new gang leader in the head. John says there is no chance that any of the gang members will want revenge and follow me back to my town and harm my family.

"I Hate American Tyranny! Oooh But Please Give Me Putin/Gaddafi/Assad!"

What is wrong with some of my "liberty" brethren?!??!?! Actually, this is not meant for my libertarian friends. This is meant for the purely anti american/anti american government/extremist populists... I am so disgusted by some of you, that I've been wanting to post this for a LONG TIME and after watching Putin's defense for his PURELY TYRANNICAL laws against his own people, I realized, its time to bring the fight on. I'm anticipating a lot of venom, but what's right is right, bring it on!

Just be honest, you tyrant defenders, you are not "libertarians." I am a libertarian and I love my country, but I hate my government. I hate any man who thinks that by force and by money they can control another man. Thats what the US government is, thats what Putin is, thats what Assad is, What Gaddafi was, Saddam Hussein was, thats what Hitler was, thats what Stalin was, etc etc etc. yet these same FOOLS who decry US hegemony and US world dominance, APPLAUD AND DEFEND PUTIN!!!

Putin, really? The man who is lying to the whole world while invading Ukrain (I was NOT a fan of US involvement into Ukraine and believed Crimea has a right to succession, but whats going on now is pure murder and tyranny of violence of one state over another).

Roman Empire Slaughtered by Their Own Paid Assassins. Professional protectors Demanded Their Pensions.


Securing police pensions... in the time limit set by Rome... 20 years.
Using force, or just the threat of force... to secure pensions is common... Enforcers routinely back up their requests with their force.

Hey there human being

It's Sunday afternoon, the sun finally came out and its been shining down for hours. The sky's blue and perfectly clear now, but earlier in the day when it was still dark it rained. At noon the humidity and outside temperatures were higher than normal. It was miserably sticky; the kind of weather where your clothes glue to your skin and you can't get cool, no one wants to be outside.

By 3:00 the pools of rain water have dried up and people are starting to come out into their yards and the streets again. I'm on my way home from walking my dogs. The smell of ribs grilling over apple wood drifts through the air to me. I pass a family gathered together for a picnic in the neighborhood park.

Dad's hanging back in the shade of a big Cottonwood tree, working the grill and sneaking sips from a sweating bottle—He's in the midst of taking a long pull of beer—when he sees me passing by. He makes a move to hide the bottle. I've disturbed him, intruded into that sacred space he's found in front of the grill. It's a space filled with wisps of smoke curling up to chase away the twin ghosts of work and worry. The disturbance is brief. Presently a wave of ease settles over his face. Everything about him returns to the way it was before I came by. He seems to be saying "Ahhh fuck it, it's Sunday afternoon and I'm here to enjoy myself" as he raises the bottle to his lips again.

Storing your Silver Safely

Buying silver is something that a lot of people that read this site do so I figured it was about time for a post full of tips, ideas, and advice on how to store your precious metals.

Silver is a hedge against instability but like any physical hedge it could be stolen by thieves, confiscated in a no-knock-raid, or potentially taken by a bank during a bail-in.

There may not be anywhere that your silver is 100% safe so to minimize risk it is important to try and have multiple locations. Even under the worst case scenario you won't lose all of your stashes. Silver that you plan on saving for a longer period of time can be stored in more isolated places.

I must be a sociopath, real life trolling, boredom and other thoughts

The past few years have been a wild psychological ride for me. I went from being someone who was very happy with the system, one who even supported Obama in 2008 to someone who was shocked into reality from 2010 to present. The DP is responsible to a large extent for my awakening as I've shared in other posts... but it was the twitter anarchists who got me into circles interacting with libertarians and eventually guided me to this place. that's more of a side-note but I guess it can serve as an introduction.

Ron Paul Vs Tom Woods?

There appear to be some members here who feel Tom Woods is a much better judge of character than the good doctor. So I'm curious to know how many here trust his judgement over Dr. Paul's?

What if the war hawks told us the projected costs of their wars?

What if Lyndon Johnson would have told the truth about the Viet Nam war? What if he had said that 60,000 Americans would be killed and 300,000 wounded? What if he had said that there is no way to win, we will have to stay there for 100 years like the french did? What if he had said that it would bankrupt the country so bad that we would have to abandon the gold standard and start printing money and the inflation rate would be 12% for several years in a row? Would the american people been in favor of the war then?

I Have Decided to Join Your Group

For a long time now, we have been at odds. I have challenged your beliefs and values by pointing out that I have different beliefs and values. I have also threatened your ego by challenging your beliefs and nudging you into the dark corners of self-doubt. For how could we both be right?
