I admire your desire to

I admire your desire to promote what is right.

We agree that one should prosper by the sweat of his brow.

You and I are also in agreement when you state that we should keep what we earn.

Your use of the word mob, however, is disturbing.

Mob
noun.
1. A large disorderly crowd or throng. See Synonyms at crowd.
2. The mass of common people; the populace.

The word mob is associated with violent crowds, or the ignorant masses.

Using the word "mob" to describe like minded people is not just stretching the term, but is incorrect.

Would we describe the Mises Institute, or the Free State Project, as mobs?

I don't know if you would agree, but English grammar does not.

A mob that is right.

That phrase sent chills down my spine.

First, we will never have the majority.

Second, majorities, as you know, do not determine history anyway.

Brave individuals do.

It is disconcerting that you are in essence saying; "Democracy sucks, we have a republic... a republic that embraces majority rule, the very backbone of democracy."

Contradiction much?

Taxation is theft?
...Except if constitutionally voted upon by men I've never met and have no actual control over.

Contradictions anyone?

Taxation is as evil as wife-beating or ganging up on a black person and hanging them from a high tree.

I will have no part in anything resembling a mob.

Majority rule by force is immoral, period.

Do you agree?
