Apathy is the best weapon--atleast its my weapon of choice

Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break in pieces

Etienne de la Boetie

La Boétie concludes his exhortation by assuring the masses that to overthrow the tyrant they need not act, nor shed their blood. They can do so "merely by willing to be free."

But I am sure this nothing new to you. This physiology people have for politics does fascinate me. Its a really bad show and the get it good and hard. But they come back for more. I think psychiatrists say you never really want a thing, you want the wanting of the thing.

I guess that puts it into perspective. True libertarians don't want anything politically really. No power/authority, no goodies or hand outs, and certainly no lying politicians. But on the other hand there seems to be a lot of people that actually like politicians and big government just fine, they just want a certain brand...little do they know they just want the wanting!
