We are indeed in trouble, both as a people and as a nation. This trouble may be related to conspiracy and treason, but neither would be possible without the cooperation of a complacent society. Our ultimate end will be the reward for our own inactions. Battling one another over political, social and economic differences merely distracts us from seeing the actual course that history is taking.
Schopenhauer All truth passes throughthree stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

[also see American Rhetoric Online Speech Bank]

"This is the gravest danger that to-day threatens civilisation: State intervention; the absorbtion of all spontaneous social effort by the State, that is to say, of spontaneous historical action, which in the long run sustains, nourishes, and impels human destinies."
Jose Ortega y Gasset
, The Revolt of the Masses (W.H. Norton & Company. New York. 1932)

". . . we are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."
- Ayn Rand , The Nature of Government
"Have you ever noticed that it's the public sector that complains about having too many customers?" -- Jacob "Bumper" Hornberger, July 4, 1996 keynote speech, Libertarian Party Nominating Conventionx

    This cuneiform inscription is the earliest-known written appearance of the word freedom (ama-gi) or liberty.  Taken from a clay document written about 2300 B.C. in the Sumerian city-state of Lagash it serves as the design motif for the endpapers of Liberty Fund books.

    "Should I Be Interested in Proportional Representation?"

    "The foundations of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality, and the preeminence of free government be exemplified by all the attributes which can win the affections of its citizens, and command the respect of the world. I dwell on this prospect with every satisfaction which an ardent love for my country can inspire: since there is no truth more thoroughly established, than that there exists in the economy and course of nature, an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness; between duty and advantage; between the genuine maxims of an honest and magnanimous policy, and the solid rewards of public prosperity and felicity: since we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the external rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained: and since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American People. " -- George Washington (from his inaugural address)

    "The only thing new is the history you don't know." Harry S. Truman

    "Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." -- Noah Webster

    "Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action." -- George Washington

    "Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle! Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." --Frederick Douglass, August 4, 1857.

    "Power is intoxicating to all. It feeds upon itself. We the people gain nothing by substituting new people for old in Washington. Our only hope is to take away the power that has been concentrated there, so that no one can use it benevolently or otherwise. Once we allow ourselves to become the subjects of benevolent power, we shall soon fiind ourselves the slaves of a very unbenevolent power." --Betty Knowles Hunt

    VOTING FOR A REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT is like "Hobson's Choice" -
    1] an apparent freedom to take or reject something offered when in fact no such freedom exists: an apparent freedom of choice when there is no real alternative. [Webster's 3rd International Dictionary]
    2] According to Words and Phrases, Hobson's Choice : The very word "election" signifies a free choice, and an election by compulsion is an anomaly. An election which involves no freedom of choice is known as "Hobson's Choice", which is defined as a choice without an alternative. New v Smith, 145 P 880. There are updated cases in the cummulative suppliment pp: 831 FS 1166, 1188; 530 A2d 1044, 1046
    Thomas Hobson, a seventeenth-century liveryman in Cambridge, England, told every customer he could have any horse he wanted, as long as it was the one nearest the door. Hobson's choice should not be used in the context of dilemma or mere indecision. It is a choice between what is offered and nothing.

    "Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of government. The history of liberty is the history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it."  -Woodrow Wilson
    “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people, On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.” - H.L. Mencken
