Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
“If someone in government wants to give me an educated opinion of what to do, that is fine. However, people in government generally don’t stop with issuing opinions. It is the set of orders coming from those officials that worries me.”
William Anderson

“In so many ways, we’d be much safer if the government stopped protecting us.”
Sheldon Richman

“Our increased reliance on laws to regulate behavior is a measure of how uncivilized we've become."
Walter Williams

“The formulation of American foreign policy is all about domestic political pressures. It is the domain of lobbyists and de facto foreign agents, most of them unregistered, who work with targeted American constituencies to further various commercial and foreign interests. A rational foreign policy, i.e., one that serves authentic American interests, is virtually impossible in these circumstances.”
Justin Raimondo

“A concentration of too many fools can be mistaken for a conspiracy.”
Bill Huff

“The constitutional and representative democracies cannot be saved by changing the leadership, because they are based on rules of force that must come to grief. They cannot be changed by voting. No stable economy can be reflated by a central bank, and no stable nation can be reflated by voting in new leaders. Counter-intuitively, the government bubble will burst when more and more people do not vote and withdraw their support from a government based on unworkable and unjust rules of force.”
Michael Rozeff

“The humanitarian in theory is the terrorist in action”
Isabel Patterson

“The government we have is coercive by construction. The law of the land is coercive by construction. They involve majority rule in which one group is able legally to impose its wishes on other groups by force.
A non-coercive government can be reformed. People only need to stop using its services. It then either shapes up and responds to people’s needs or it loses out to alternative means of governance.”
Michael Rozeff

“When knowledge is withheld from the people and instead replaced with indoctrination built upon ignorance- knowledge becomes the tool of a tyrant used to enslave the masses.”
Sam Dodson, being held indefinitely, on $10,000 cash bail, without access to legal council in an unsanitary jail cell in the Cheshire County Correctional Facility in Keen, New Hampshire, since April 13th- for the “crime” of remaining silent.

The whole Progressive and Neoconservative project is in an ascendant position that will either collapse or seal the fate of all freedom-loving Americans. I would suggest that we are strikingly similar to the Soviet Union in the 1980s with the implementation of policies that are nonsensical, dangerous and economically illiterate. They are conducting themselves much like a nomenklatura bent on securing their fortunes and immunity before the whole rotten system known as modern twentieth-century American governance rips asunder under the weight of its stunning contradictions and absurdly vicious behavior to its host population.”
William Buppert

“Christians should be leaving the Republican Party in droves. Christians should be crawling on broken glass as penance for blindly supporting the Republican Party. Christians should be repenting in sackcloth and ashes for thinking the Republican Party was the party of God.
America needs more Christians like John the Baptist instead of John Hagee.”
Laurence Vance

“What is the ostensive difference between ecclesiastical rule, which claims the right of directing the lives of a people through "divine guidance" and that of a civil authority comprised of elitists who claim the same right through legislation?
Is a society, which will continually relinquish its freedoms, rights, and markets to a ruling authority, capable of refusing the ultimate demand of the state, i.e., the inhuman right to commit wholesale murder?"
Tim Case

“Knowledge begins with skepticism and ends with conceit.”
David Deming

“The age for the veneration for governments, notwithstanding all the hypnotic influence they employ to maintain their position, is more and more passing away. And it is time for people to understand that governments not only are not necessary, but are harmful and most highly immoral institutions, in which a self-respecting, honest man cannot and must not take part, and the advantages of which he cannot and should not enjoy. And as soon as people clearly understand that, they will naturally cease to take part in such deeds - that is, cease to give the governments soldiers and money. And as soon as a majority of people ceases to do this the fraud which enslaves people will be abolished.”
Lyoff N. Tolstoy

“I think we have established that the institutions of slavery and taxation are ideological twins harnessed to the central idea of power, control and ill-earned profit at another’s expense.”
William Buppert

From the Darkness:
"If financial institutions won't cooperate with us, we will assume that they are sheltering money in tax havens and act accordingly."
Head gangster, Obama, blatantly extorting companies to avoid legal tax loopholes and pay up to The Man.

"I hope you understand that it was a very difficult time. We were all so terrified of another attack on the country. Even under those most difficult circumstances, the president was not prepared to do something illegal, and I hope people understand that we were trying to protect the country."
Condi Rice, responding to a fourth grade student concerning what she thought about the Obama administration's remarks on interrogation methods authorized by its predecessors.

“While we do not expect a recovery of these funds, we are comfortable that in the totality of the arrangement, the Treasury and the American taxpayer are being fairly compensated.”
An Obama official confirming that Chrysler will not be repaying $7 billion in taxpayer funded loans.

"We can no longer afford to spend as if deficits don't matter and waste is not our problem. We can no longer afford to leave the hard choices for the next budget, the next administration -- or the next generation."
Barry Obama, the master at talking out of both sides of his mouth. [Hey Barry, just who do you think is going to be paying your trillions in new debt?]
