Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
“Government, when it is examined, turns out to be nothing more nor less than a group of fallible men with the political force to act as though they were infallible. Remove the political force and these same men would be as ordinary and as reasonable as any of us.”
Robert LeFevre

“To conflate the work of Christ with the work of worldly politics is to miss the meaning of His life, death, and resurrection. To claim that a Christian must vote for a specific policy or politician, that Christians must use government to enforce our morals – to prohibit bad behavior or to force good behavior – is to reduce the work of Christ to the work of a politician. He is not too weak or insignificant for political battles; political battles are too weak and insignificant for Him. The kind of freedom and righteousness He offers is far too great, too personal, to be advanced by physical force (which all politics boils down to); politics is beneath the spiritual life, not above it.”
Isaac M. Morehouse

“I for one do not want live in a world in which I have to pay for someone else's mistakes. I don't want to live in a world in which the government has a claim on my property before I do. I don't want to live in a world in which the government determines that the environment takes precedence over my life. I don't want to live in a world in which free speech is protected, yet I have to be afraid that everything I say is "politically correct." Most of all, I don't want to live in a world in which the rights of the smallest and most important minority, THE INDIVIDUAL, are sacrificed to the mob for the public good.”
Benjamin Weingarten

“As somebody who considers the State to be nothing more than a criminal syndicate pursuing a monopoly, I consider sedition to be a fine and noble calling worthy of all decent and Godly people. But statists of the conservative stripe engage in purely situational sedition: They want to undermine our present crop of rulers in order to replace them, not to abolish State impositions on liberty.”
Will Grigg

“Capitalism is not a collection of nuts and bolts, gears and switches. Instead, it is a moral 'system.' 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,' is all you need to know about it.And like any moral 'system,' it rarely gives the capitalists what they hope for...or what they want. It gives them what they deserve. And right now, it's giving it to them good and hard.”
Bill Bonner

From the Darkness:
"Putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border. I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum."
US Attorney General, Eric Holder, advocating the introduction of a new Assault Weapons Ban.

“He had an AK-47 in his hand and was trying to get away. If he were innocent, he would have sat there.”
Army Major Todd Polk, justifying killing an Afghan “terrorist” during a US raid.

“Five percent of the Taliban is incorrigible, not susceptible to anything other than being defeated. Another 25 percent or so are not quite sure, in my view, of the intensity of their commitment to the insurgency. Roughly 70 percent are involved because of the money.”
Joe Biden

“It is from this same area that al-Qaeda and its extremist allies are regenerating and conceiving new atrocities to visit upon us.”
Joe Biden, referring to Afghanistan and Pakistan. [Yep, more spectacular attacks planned and executed from caves.]

“Because my attitude is that if we capture an enemy combatant in the battlefield -- or we can use Osama bin Laden -- who may have information about a pending attack. You know what, I don't have any problem taking his head sticking it underwater and scaring the living daylights out of him and making him think we're drowning him, and I'm a Christian."
Sean Hannity
