"Americans have been taught that their nation is civilized and humane. But, too often, U.S. actions have been uncivilized and inhumane."
"Covid-19 crackdowns are a warning for people to be wary of oppressive governments regardless of their purported mandate. The world doesn’t need any more Cage Keeper Democracies where citizens’ ballots merely designate who will place them under house arrest."
"In general, those who resort to mass murder on a collective scale always put forward the justification that they acted on behalf of the nation."
"The vast majority of homicides, particularly those caused by people with guns, occur in a small handful of America's largest cities and, by an overwhelming percentage, are a result of black-on-black crime using handguns. This is not a weapons problem. It might behoove us to ask the serious question, why are black people killing black people, and further, why do the media and politicians ignore it? Of course, we know the answer to the second half of that question: it doesn't fit their gun-grabbing agenda."
"Deeper in the forest of causation is that the pathologically aggressive, amoral, manipulative, and crafty tend to rise to power. We select as rulers those who are least fit to rule. In America this is often done a bit differently, with the unscrupulous and powerful choosing cardboard leaders whose strings they can pull. The effect is the same."
"Transgenderism has been until relatively very recently deemed a serious moral failing by nearly every culture throughout history. It was only with the advent of contemporary progressivism and wokism that it has been accepted and then promoted by the cultural mainstream. Sadly, the subversion of our moral order is now nearly complete. So much so that on his very first day as president of the United States, Joe Biden signed an executive order which, among other things, forces schools that accept federal funds, which most schools do, [to] allow boys who 'identify' as girls to compete with genuine girls in athletics. It would also allow these boys to use girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms
What Joe Biden and the Democrats have done testifies of the deep moral corruption of the contemporary left. As far as we know, no culture has ever allowed such a thing to take place in its midst. And neither should we."
"The dissenting voice is perhaps the most potent force on the face of the Earth. Expressed as an informed opinion, it frequently finds itself at odds with a prevailing worldview, an official government policy, or even the general consensus — some aspects of which may actually be enforced by authorities or gatekeepers in their respective contexts and domains.
Dissent is doubly powerful when it involves the reasoned application of critical thinking in questioning or challenging a dominant or majority view. As such, dissention, by definition, expresses a minority view. Yet history teaches us that it’s the minority that has always been the motive force in shaping the world; it will prove no less effective in forging the future of human flourishing and freedom we seek to manifest through the actions we take today. And while motivated dissenters may be few in number, Margaret Mead reminds us, 'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has'!"
"Government has no power and no resources that it doesn't first take from the people. Unlike private enterprise, it cannot produce anything. Whatever it has, it must extract from private enterprise. Although this was understood well in the 18th century, and most of the 19th as well, it has been largely forgotten in our century of socialism and statism, of Nazism, Communism, New Dealism, welfarism, and total war."
"Understand that there only three ways that the brainwashing and gaslighting of conservatives will stop:
1) We submit and embrace the false narrative as if it is true and give-in to psychological slavery.
2) We separate completely from leftist totalitarians and organized psychopaths and go our own way.
3) We remove the psychopaths from the picture and rebuild.
Until one of these three things happens, like all psychopaths, leftists and globalists will continue seeking to wear us down. This is what they do. They have seen it work in the past."
"The woke corporatist oligarchs are engaging in a suicidal strategy which will result in a decisive populist backlash/avalanche by tens of millions of enraged voters/consumers who will reach the pivotal breaking point, the line drawn in the sand, crossing over in a determined effort of revenge and vengeance to the engendered insidious racism and government/corporate tyranny and oppression foisted upon them and their families. The counter-revolution will not be pretty or delicate, but decisive and wrenching."
"Secession is the natural right of all people, and can only be successfully achieved by individual dissolution from the state. It cannot be successful through any political process or voting that aims to amend the governing system into another form of government. Past history has certainly shown this to be the case. For if eliminating all government power leads to individual freedom, then rebuilding another governing structure that allows for certain powers over the people by the political class will only end in more tyranny. That is why states seceding through the political process, but retaining political power at the state level will naturally fail. When people decide to separate from what is referred to as the 'Union,' a further separation is mandatory if true liberty is to be won and sustained. This is why I have always advocated for total secession, even if incremental in its initial advancement, so that the final result would be that the people themselves actually control their own destiny."

"'Invisible Government' is a phrase for which it would be difficult to formulate a dictionary definition without sacrifice of accuracy to brevity. It may perhaps be best described as the political and economic control of the community — or the political control for selfish, if not sinister, economic purposes — by individual men, or groups or organizations, who are careful to evade the responsibility which should always accompany power. They operate behind a mask or puppets in politics and business, and these must take the blame in courts of law, and before the bar of public opinion, for any errors in the technique of knavery."
"All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man: it’s one permanent object is to oppress him and cripple him… One of its primary functions is to regiment men by force, to make them as much alike as possible and as dependent upon one another as possible, to search out and combat originality among them."
