Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
“Repeated government interventions are unsustainable in the long run. Every attempt to forcibly impede peaceable individual choices will result in resistance, market distortions, deprivation, and violence.”
Darian Worden

"It is the essence of the conspiracy to persuade the public that the right and moral thing to do is to allow the state to help some group. As soon as the conspiracy persuades the public of this, the game switches from persuasion to power. It switches from donations to taxation. It switches from liberty to tyranny."
Gary North

“Cops, if they are to be trusted with weapons AND a badge, must be held to a much higher standard than the rest of us. The consequences for their destructive behavior must be much more harsh than it would be if they were not a LEO. Refusal to hold them fully accountable for their actions is only facilitating our headlong descent into the police state America is becoming.”
Kent McManigal

“People cannot seem to resist politics. The hope of getting something for nothing is too great. Besides, there's the excitement of it...the thrill of engagement...the roar of cannons and the smell of the crowd. There's the feeling of pride and excitement when the ballots are counted or the troops walk by. Understanding the feds' reaction to the current crisis is impossible without realizing that people are forever setting out to do mischief to others...and usually to themselves.”
Bill Bonner

“Just as elites seek to re-imagine and recreate our world, we too, can do the same. This must begin with the human understanding, where we enter into a new Renaissance or Enlightenment, not western, but global; where the people communicate and interact with each other on a personal basis, not through elite structures. This must be the aim of the global political awakening: to achieve peace through peaceful means. If everyone in the world simply decided to no longer acknowledge people and positions of power, that power would vanish. If there is no army, because the soldiers decided to no longer recognize the government, there is no one to pull the trigger on people in the street.”
Andrew Gavin Marshall

“….a bunch of old fossils looking to make a buck off skin color.”
Mark Williams, Tea Party spokesman, describing the NAACP

“There is no such thing as a ‘clean cop’ when all cops initiate violence against peaceful people simply because words on paper say it is okay. Might does NOT make right.”
Brad Jardis
From the Darkness:
"Just to be clear, the U.S. government through the Department of Defense goes out and attempts to target and kill people, a lot of people, who haven't been indicted."
Michael Leiter, Director of the National Counterterrorism Center

"As recently as two years ago, anyone predicting the current state of affairs (not only is unemployment disastrously high, but most forecasts say that it will stay very high for years) would have been dismissed as a crazy alarmist."
Paul Krugman [Hey Paul. I saw it predicted at least five years ago. Where were you?]

"I believe in the special relationship. I think Britain is, of course, the junior partner, but I think it is an important and long-standing relationship and I hope that we bring things to that relationship."
David Cameron, British Prime Minister, describing Britain as the junior partner in the special relationship between the UK and the US.
