"Apart from some good news in restoring Texas’ Red River border, in 2017, Washington further eroded our rights as a state, progressive interests within Texas failed to give us the tools to oppose an imperial federal government, and D.C. is as hell-bent as ever to kill our economy through massive debt. Yet, in Washington’s slide towards suicide, there remains hope. More and more Texans have been waking up to the realization that D.C. cannot be saved, and that Texas independence is the only way to restore prosperity and freedom. May 2018 be the year Texas firmly decides to reclaim the self-determination that was always hers. An overreaching Washington is definitely one old acquaintance that should be forgot."
"Groupthinkers constantly believe that their concepts are distinct 'things.' It’s why they think that a 'social contract' is an actual item rather than an idea, why they think 'fairness' or 'diversity' or 'tolerance' are specifically identifiable entities rather than just general viewpoints that different people think differently about."
"It’s in the best interests of leaders to convince their citizens that other human beings living in rival gangster nation-states are the enemy. Pretty much all nation-states are run as organized crime syndicates, the only question is a matter of degree. As such, the goal of political leaders is more often than not to propagandize 'the people' into thinking that they are somehow special, the chosen ones, etc. When this sort of propaganda is successful, it provides the pretext for all kinds of barbaric horrors against other humans who are, naturally, less special or righteous than they are."
"Passive words like democracy disarm the mind, and then it is only a matter of time before you volunteer to hand over your guns. 'To keep and bear arms' is the opposite of democracy."
"Terrorism is defined by Caleb Carr as politically motivated violence against non-combatants and it just so happens that definition is coincident with government behavior at its root and as observed every day. The dozens of agencies that have a charter or sub-charters to deal with formal terrorism cannot even agree on what that definition is. The War on Terror is a nonsensical enterprise on so many levels but you would think a sober government analyst would realize an honest government would pursue this to self-eradication."
"The State is the organization of the herd to act offensively or defensively against another herd similarly organized."
"The United States of America, regardless of the misguided belief by the masses that this is the land of the free, is undeniably by strict political definition, a Fascist oligarchy. Yes, there are some aspects of democracy, socialism, communism, and Marxism, but Fascism by the few is the ruling political ideology of today’s America.
This explains the obvious mindset of 'American exceptionalism,' and the nonsensical belief America is the epitome of right and good. The root of this arrogant, obnoxious thinking has for generations been by state design. This notion is perpetuated throughout the life of all citizens by state indoctrination and brainwashing, beginning with government controlled schools that claim quasi-ownership of children from infancy to full adulthood. The aim of these institutions is to indoctrinate the masses to produce model citizens in a society that is loyal to community, city, state, and nation, and one opposed to self-interest, self-ownership and individualism."
"The Constitution states admirable old ideals, strictly for moral people from another age. While it endures historically as a quaint piece of preserved parchment for tourists to ogle when visiting the Logic Free Swamp, today’s operative 'Constitution' is scribbled on a Magic Slate every day as circumstances warrant. 'Security' has been relegated to mediocre 'Scrabble' word. As a pragmatic reality, it exists only in direct proximity to your personal firearm. The Law and its loin-girded enforcers can no longer be counted on to be a shield for you or your inalienable rights; they are now mere bargaining chips in times of confrontation. 'Innocence' is for old Perry Mason re-runs; your 'case' is only as virtuous as the news cycle is long. We have devolved into a Society of 'Got’cha Last'."
"If I said I was skeptical that a supernatural being put us here on Earth, you’d be justified in calling me a 'doubter of religion.' But if I said I was skeptical that manmade global warming was going to melt the icecaps, that doesn’t make me a 'doubter of science.' Once upon a time, the best minds in science told us the Sun revolved around the Earth. They also told us the Earth was flat, and that a really bad fever could be cured by blood-letting. Happily, those beliefs were questioned by skeptical minds, and we moved forward. Science is a wonderful thing, and a critical thing. But without doubt, science doesn’t advance."
"Liberty is an indivisible whole. When we allow government to violate a few rights here and there, we endanger them all. Rulers strong enough to protect what we deem important are strong enough to destroy it, too. Loving liberty requires that we not only heed this elemental tenet but cooperate with it. No matter how necessary or good something may be, enforcing it at the point of the government’s guns always boomerangs, crushing what we sought to promote while empowering politicians.
If we are ever to live free, we must unite around the simplest definition of freedom and fight for it alone rather than for other issues: 'no governmental compulsion against any peaceful person for any reason at any time'."
