Freedom and Tyranny, a book review

I stood in line with about 1000 others who were merely seeking to have a book signed by its author. The significant aspect was this book was not some work of popular fiction but the manifesto of political conservatives.

Many are frustrated with our elected officials. Mark Levin has made a name for himself as a talk show host pointing out the great divide between the citizens and the politicians who they elect to secure the rights enumerated in our Constitution. In his book "Liberty and Tyranny" Mr. Levin makes clear that we are no longer choosing between Republican and Democrat but between Statists and our Constitutional Republic. Both parties have become the agents of statism, nether is reposive to the voter but seeks only the acquisition and exercise of power.revealing the objective of the Statist

What I found in the book was the clear articulation of what I have always believed. Each of the first five chapters lays out the reason and principle behind the Constitution and the form of government the founders chose to give us. He makes the case that the Constitution secures rights for individual citizens because the founders recognized true liberty could only be individual liberty. Conversely he demonstrates how threatening individualism is to the aims of the statist.

For the Statist, Liberty is not a blessing but the enemy. It is not possible to achieve Utopia if individuals are free to go their own way. The individual must be dehumanized and his nature delegitimized. Through persuasion, deception, and coercion, the individual must be subordinated to the state....

Then in a later chapter, he lays out in an easy to understand manner how the federal government is supposed to work and how the states under federalism should be the incubators of solutions to the issues of society. Quoting justice Louis D. Brandeis:

"A single courageous state may, if its citizens choose, serve as a laboratory, and try novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country."

This of course has been precluded by the extra constitutional mandates of the federal government that forces the states into a conformity that serves the power hungry politicians in Washington rather than allowing free citizens to seek their own solutions.

Subsequent chapters deal with specific issues such as immigration, welfare and environmentalism. Each states the intention of the statist and the violence he does to our constitution to justify such things.

Finally the author sums up the course of action that the conservative must take to regain the government we are meant to have with the freedoms it guarantees. This was the chapter that I found most valuable. The others just reinforced what I already knew. The epilogue lay out a call to action that will take a long term outlook and effort. We did not get here overnight and we will not undo the damage overnight. As the poverb states, a journey of a 100 miles begins with the first step. This book resonates with those who believe in the individual which is why 1000 individuals waited hours to have such an important book signed by its author.

Eric Cantor's Virginia Voices Survey Updated

Rep. Eric Cantor sent this survey to my email. It exemplifies what is wrong with elected Republicans and politicians in general. I did not answer any of the questions because there was no correct answer that I could agree with provided as a choice.

Virginia Voices Survey
Tell us what you think

1. Do you think that House Republicans should continue to push for pro-growth policies that preserve, protect and create jobs and oppose tax increases that would add a burden to working families and set back our economy?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Undecided

No brainer here. What does he expect?

2. What was the most ridiculous part of the recently passed Democrat spending bill?

  • $3.5 trillion expansion of federal debt in 2009 and 2010
  • $600 million to buy new cars for government workers.
  • $1 billion dollars to lay the groundwork for socialized health care
  • $3 billion for "Sex Education"
  • $650 million for Digital TV Converters.

The most ridiculous part of the spending bill is THE SPENDING!

3. Which provision of my proposed Middle Class Bill of Rights is most important to you?

  • Bring down gas prices
  • Bring down the cost of food
  • Make paychecks go further
  • More jobs and safer retirements
  • Health care coverage for families
  • Simple, honest and fair tax code

Nothing in this list pertain to one's rights. They are just desirable outcomes There should be no higher right than the right to our Life, Liberty and Property. None of Congress' efforts do anything but diminish these.

4. How do you receive the majority of your political news?

  • Online
  • Newspapers
  • Magazines
  • Radio
  • Television

Just a marketing question.

5. What steps would you like see taken to help boost the economy?

The only question I gave a response to:

How about dropping the nonsense and bringing the Federal Government back within its constitutional boundaries? That more than anything else would solve our economic woes because ignorant and meddling politicians would be prevented from diminishing our liberties and stealing our wealth.

This nitwit voted for the first bailout bill and for the 90% tax on AIG bonuses. Hardly a conservative. He needs to understand the difference between policy and principle. If he were acting from principle he would not need to do surveys to find out what policies to pursue.

Update 7 April, 2009:

I now receive this reply from Rep Cantor via email. He obviously did not read the comment above, the only question I gave an answer to.

Subject: Help Me Fight Back Against Democrat Attacks
Date: Tue, 07 Apr 2009 14:21:29 -0400
I would like to thank you for submitting a response to my Virginia
Voices survey. Thousands of people across the Commonwealth
participated and offered valuable information.

For instance, when asked if you think House Republicans should
continue to push for pro-growth policies that preserve, protect and
create jobs and oppose tax increases a resounding 90% of respondents
said YES.

I appreciate this support as I battle House Democrats over their
reckless and excessive spending habits. However, now liberals are
using my disagreements on policy decisions to launch personal attacks
against me.

The Wall Street Journal on Friday recognized the dirty tactics by Democrats as

"the furious campaign -- waged by every blog, pundit, union, 527,
and even the White House -- to kneecap Republicans who might help
lead a makeover. Mr. Cantor is the top target."


I do want to change Washington, and I need your immediate help.

Please consider a contribution of $10, $25 or $50 to help my campaign
take a stand against the Democrat onslaught.


We need to respond and show liberals that our determination to support
an American recovery based on lower taxes, new jobs, and fiscal
responsibility will not waver.

I appreciate your continued support.


Eric Cantor

It is this disconnect that from what citizens are trying to tell their representatives that drives me to want to see the whole house of cards come tumbling down. We have a constitution that they are supposed to act within the limits of, yet they violate it with impunity and work not for our interest but for their own.

Mr. Cantor, I will send you money when you demonstrate a clear desire for the principles of our Constitution, when you take a stand for the citizen over your personal interest.

Tea Party Movement Growing

I may be hard to find any news about the Tea Parties that are springing up because the mainstream Media just want to ignore them in hopes they will go away. Today there is a large rally in Orlando Florida. The local news just had to cover it because there were just too many people there to pretend it wasn't happening. Police estimates are a crowd of 3000. One can see pictures of the event here.

Introduction To American Socialism

We are a sovereign Christian nation with a superb Constitution.

Years ago, an orator reverently placed the Holy Bible on the lectern, saying, "This is for those who believe in God." Then he just as reverently placed on the lectern a copy of the Constitution, saying, "This is for those who respect the law." And then he pulled out a dagger and thrust it into the lectern, hissing, "And this is for the rest!"

Crooked legislators who accepted campaign donations from monster financial institutions they pressured into providing sub-prime loans to prospective voters then distracted the electorate by using the Internal Revenue Service of the Executive Branch to punish American International Group executives by using the Judicial Branch's authority to indict, prosecute and convict 73 United States citizens. So much for separation of powers. And justice.

A World Net Daily article posted on 27 November 2008 reported on a 2001 WBEZ FM radio station interview with Illinois state legislator Barack Hussein Obama. In the interview, Mr Obama said the United States has suffered from a fundamentally flawed Constitution that does not mandate or allow for redistribution of wealth. He said a "redistributive change" is needed, and cited a failure of the Warren court to "break free from the essential constraints" in the United States Constitution and launch a major distribution of wealth. He said the Supreme Court never ventured into the basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. He spoke of the Constitution as a "charter of negative liberties. [sic] Says what the states can't do to you. [sic] Says what the federal government can't do to you, but doesn't say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf." He mentioned the "tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change."

Fellow Americans, how do you like totalitarian communism so far?

My Email to Rep Rob Wittman R-VA on the Bailout Bounuses

I am shocked that you would vote to tax the bonuses of the AIG exects. Congress gave to bailout money to the Treasury Dept with NO Stipulations on how the money was to be used. The stimulus bill protected those bonuses. No conservative could possibly justify a tax rate of 90% for any reason. There is ZERO Constitutional authority for such nonsense. I did not contact you about this issue because I thought you were clear thinking. I was sadly mistaken.

Here is his statement from his website on the bill to tax the bonuses at 90%
March 19, 2009: Congressman Wittman Statement on Return of Taxpayer Money from AIG Employees PDF Print E-mail
Washington - "I am pleased that Congress acted today to protect the American taxpayer and assure that bonuses to AIG executives will be returned. These bonuses are an absolute outrage."

"Unfortunately, in the rush to approve the stimulus package, taxpayer protections were removed that would have prevented AIG bonuses in the first place. When taxpayers are asked to bear the burden of reckless corporate behavior, the President and Congress have a moral obligation to make sure that money is spent wisely."

"I voted against the stimulus package and the bailout bills because I was deeply concerned that taxpayer money would be misused, as in the case of these bonuses. Congress has gone down a path of unprecedented spending these past few weeks that is deeply disturbing. I fear this is the first of many instances of taxpayer money being spent with no accountability or transparency."

Congressman Rob Wittman represents the First District of Virginia. He was elected to his first full term in November 2008 and serves on the Natural Resources Committee and the Armed Services Committee where he is the Ranking Member of the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee.

Federal Reserve Planting the Seeds of Inflation

"Nothing is as terrible to see as ignorance in action." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The Federal Reserve, or more accurately the government, will be buying 30 year treasury bonds to "promote economic recovery and to preserve price stability,". While this action may get some immediate intended effect the result will be hyper inflation. There is only one way the Fed can purchase these bonds, by printing money. They are printing $1 trillion. All savings are in danger of losing value and the reason for this action, to keep interest rats low, will be thwarted because no sane banker will willingly lend at a low rate when inflation will destroy the value of that loan.

If one wished to dry up the credit market, this is the single best course of action to take. Stacked up on top of the massive deficit spending already in the pipe line and we are quickly heading toward a third world economy.

Obama Plans to Raise Money by Charging Veterans for Medical Care

One has to marvel at the hutspa of this guy. Military Veterans, wounded in service to thier country would have to have private insurance reemburse the VA for continued treatment of service related injuries. These are citizens who were promiced the country they gave their bodies for would cover the cost of their care.

Contact: Craig Roberts of The American Legion, +1-202-263-2982 Office, +1-202-406-0887 Cell

WASHINGTON, March 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The leader of the nation's largest veterans organization says he is "deeply disappointed and concerned" after a meeting with President Obama today to discuss a proposal to force private insurance companies to pay for the treatment of military veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries. The Obama administration recently revealed a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in such cases.

"It became apparent during our discussion today that the President intends to move forward with this unreasonable plan," said Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion. "He says he is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it."

The Commander, clearly angered as he emerged from the session said, "This reimbursement plan would be inconsistent with the mandate ' to care for him who shall have borne the battle' given that the United States government sent members of the armed forces into harm's way, and not private insurance companies. I say again that The American Legion does not and will not support any plan that seeks to bill a veteran for treatment of a service connected disability at the very agency that was created to treat the unique need of America's veterans!"

One should not be shocked, promises to Obama are like toilet paper, use them and toss them.

All this because he wants to raise some cash for some other vote buying scheme. Maybe if he's so hard up he should cancel one of his many parties at the white house such as the St. Patrick's Day - budget bash scheduled for the 17th.

The Oppression of Public Debt

For your edification I present this quote from Thomas Jefferson warning us of the danger of government debt.

"I am not among those who fear the people. They, and not the rich, are our dependence for continued freedom. And to preserve their independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty
or profusion and servitude.

If we run into such debt, as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our calling and our creeds as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses; and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes; have no time to think, no means of calling our miss-managers to account but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers.

Our land-holders, too, like theirs, retaining indeed the title and stewardship of estates called theirs but held really in trust for the treasury, must wander, like theirs, in foreign countries,
and be contented with penury, obscurity, exile, and the glory of the nation.

This example reads to us the salutary lesson, that private fortunes are destroyed by public
as well as by private extravagances.

And this is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle in one instance
becomes a precedent for the second; that second for a third; and so on, till the bulk of society is reduced to be mere automatons of misery, to have no sensibilities left but for sinning and suffering.

Then begins, indeed, the bellum omnium in omnia, which some philosophers observing to be so general in this world, have mistaken for the natural, instead of the abusive state of man.

And the fore-horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression."

We are so there. Everything is taxed. Even the property and homes we own are so heavily taxed one can easily claim we no longer own it but rent from our masters in the form of taxes. They never consider doing with less but only look for more ways to gather more. Even law enforcement is utilized not to make us safe but to extract more of our wealth through fines and fees. We vote for individuals to be our representatives yet they no sooner enter office than they become the agents of government and our adversaries. It is all the more vexing that we are forced to provide the means of our own oppression through the taxes they heap upon us from all directions.

On April 15, 2009 there will be Tea Parties held throughout the nation. Join one and take the first step toward returning our freedom.

Obama, the Big O or a Big Oh, Oh

"I once said cynically of a politician,
'He'll doublecross that bridge when he comes to it.'"
- Oscar Levant

From The Washington Post 15 Sept.,2008
At a morning rally in Jacksonville, McCain noted what he called "tremendous turmoil in our financial markets and Wall Street,'' but continued to say he believes the economy is sound -- a line from his stump speech for which Democrats have mocked him.

"Our economy, I think, is still -- the fundamentals of our economy are strong, but these are very, very difficult times,'' McCain said. "I promise you, we will never put America in this position again. We will clean up Wall Street."

Sen. Barack Obama seized on McCain's assessment of the health of the economy, blasting the Republican for being "disturbingly out of touch" with the reality that everyday Americans face.

"I just think he doesn't know," Obama said in Grand Junction, Colo. "He doesn't get what's happening between the mountain in Sedona where he lives and the corridors of Washington where he works.... Why else would he say, today, of all days -- just a few hours ago -- that the fundamentals of the economy are still strong? Senator -- what economy are you talking about?"

From The New York Times 13 March, 2009
Mr. Obama said, "There are a lot of individual families who are experiencing incredible pain and hardship right now."

"But if we are keeping focused on all the fundamentally sound aspects of our economy," he added, "all the outstanding companies, workers, all the innovation and dynamism in this economy, then we're going to get through this. And I'm very confident about that."

Mr. Obama actually came close to using the same language that helped doom the campaign of his Republican opponent, Senator John McCain, who was hammered by Democrats last year for declaring that "the fundamentals of our economy are strong." Recognizing the danger in appearing too upbeat, however, the president and his advisers were careful to warn that recovery could take a long time.

Still, after weeks of emphasizing the dire nature of the economic crisis in order to pressure Congress to act on his proposals, Mr. Obama has lately tried to calibrate the tone to inspire Americans rather than stoke their fears. In fact, Lawrence H. Summers, director of the president's National Economic Council, said in a speech Friday that there was an "excess of fear."

There seems to be no end to the baloney offered up by the President. His say anything approach betrays an incompetence and ignorance that makes one marvel. This next piece of cheap lunch meat just makes one shake the head.

Obama also told business executives that the current economic crisis is no excuse to postpone costly federal investments in health care, energy and other areas.

He said the problems with financial markets are only a part of what threatens the economy. He said the country cannot keep ignoring long-term threats to the nation's prosperity, which he listed as medical costs, the U.S. dependence on oil and an education and fiscal deficit.

While one may agree with "medical costs, the U.S. dependence on oil ... and fiscal deficit" being part of the problem I can for the life of me only wonder how socialized medicine, inefficient alternative energy schemes and deficit spending will solve those problems. As for the education deficit, the destruction of the vouture system in Washington D.C. Would be an indication that Obama is not too keen on what the problem with education is.

It is looking like it's not just me but even his own people are beginning to wonder if Barack is the big O or a big Oh, Oh.

From the Telegraph.uk.co
A source close to Mr Obama's top team telephoned this newspaper last week to say that White House officials now regard it as "a mistake" to have returned the bust of Winston Churchill that the British government loaned George W. Bush - a story first reported by The Sunday Telegraph - and then to have sent the prime minister home with a gift of 25 DVDs after his visit to Washington.

Ya think?

The admission came as Mr Obama faced and upsurge of criticism from influential and previously devout supporters among American commentators, halfway through what Mr Obama hopes will prove the most consequential first 100 days since Franklin D. Roosevelt.

So far he has had a radical economic stimulus approved by Congress, but faces accusations that he and his team, who regard themselves as great communicators, have made presentational errors.

The veteran Newsweek political columnist Howard Fineman, previously an enthusiastic cheerleader, delivered a withering verdict under the headline "The Turning Tide", which concluded: "Obama still has the approval of the people, but the establishment is beginning to mumble that the president may not have what it takes."

Camille Paglia, the feminist writer who was early and vocal Obama fan, said: "Heads should be rolling at the White House for the embarrassing series of flubs that have overshadowed President Obama's first seven weeks in office."

She denounced "the fiasco of the ham-handed White House reception for British Prime Minister Gordon Brown" and said that Mr Obama's aides were a "posse of smirky smart alecks and provincial rubes" who seemed like "dazed lost lambs in the brave new world of federal legislation and global statesmanship". Ms Paglia added on Salon.com that Mr Obama "has been ill-served by his advisers and staff."

Nile Gardiner, the foremost conservative expert on the special relationship in Washington, is gunning for the official at the state department who told The Sunday Telegraph last weekend that Britain deserved no special favours and was "just the same as the other 190 countries in the world".

All that experience as a community organizer doesn't look so valuable as he claimed it would be, eh?

Well he can just blame Bush for all the trouble.

From The Washington Post 14 March, 2009
Over the past month, Obama has reminded the public at every turn that he is facing problems "inherited" from the Bush administration, using increasingly bracing language to describe the challenges his administration is up against. The "deepening economic crisis" that the president described six days after taking office became "a big mess" in remarks this month to graduating police cadets in Columbus, Ohio.

Ragean Vs. Obama

In the end more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free. -Edward Gibbon

Obama's Perfect Storm

This one-party government, led by socialists, some of whom were trained by communists (Think Frank Marshall Davis and Paul Robeson), is rushing to nationalize every conceivable venue of individual liberty and privacy. The Bill of Rights, a pillar of the Constitution, is under special assault. Speed is essential to effecting change before the electorate can discover what is happening. Talk about a new regime hitting the ground running! Deployed government interventionists are ubiquitous.

Following are examples of the leadership's evident goals.

Politicizing the census.

Adopting carbon dioxide "Cap and Trade."

Exercising total weapons control through registration of every weapon in the Attorney General's data base.

Unionizing our entire labor force by mandatory "carding."

Abridgment of freedom of speech on the radio.

Activating a Constitution Convention to re-write that document. (Delegates to the convention will of course all be "Progressives.")

Totally socializing medicine, placing each person's personal data in a national automated data base and allowing bureaucrats, not doctors, to schedule appointments.

Accommodating illegal aliens, Islam's Sharia law, and persecution of Christians.

Annulling individual property rights and business contracts.

Taxing gasoline by the mile instead of the gallon.

Murdering the infirm and the unborn.

Emasculating our under-strength, incompletely structured and disrespected armed forces, underfunded for modernization, repair and maintenance of combat-stressed materiel, underfunded for advanced research and development, and subject to social engineering.

Assuring our creditors in Red China they need not worry about our indebtedness, because our government will exercise its right of eminent domain to seize private assets to satisfy foreign debts.

Deliberately adopting the spend thrift Depression era policies of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, knowing they will exacerbate the crisis.

Deliberate aggravation of the electorate, triggering revolt - and imposition of martial law.

Exacerbating crises and chaos in order to make changes not otherwise achievable.

Beware the cool and flamboyant benevolent dictator! Selfish politicians are pushing our country into quicksand - cruelly water boarding us into conceding that the future is irretrievably desolate. This new administration and the Congress are becoming characterized by deceit, false promises, misleading reports, individual income tax evasion, secrecy, and censorship.

Only an informed electorate totally committed to support and defense of the Constitution can preserve our republic now. The Tenth Amendment should be our touchstone.

Stimulus is Working 25 Down 3499975 to Go

Obama flew to Ohio to read the teleprompter at the graduation of 25 firefighters who got called back when the stimulus money arrived. I would venture that the cost to the taxpayers for his jaunt would compare to the CEOs of the auto companies flying to Washington to talk to Congress but this trip is very important. The stimulus bill brought 25 jobs back! It wll only provide the money for one year, then the local government is on its own to try and figure out how to keep these positions open. Not to worry, Obama willl have more wealth to spread around next year.

I wonder how long it will take him to visit the remaining 3,499,975 people that will get hired because of the stimulus?

Tax Poem

Forwarded by a friend......

At first I thought this was funny....then I realized the

awful truth of it.

Be sure to read all the way to the end!

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,

Tax his coat.
Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think..

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers,
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore..

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
'Taxes drove me to my doom...'

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

My latest Email to Michael Steele

Mr. Steele,

When are you who run the RNC going to figure out that we are the OPPOSITION? Stop agreeing with the liberals and call them on their nonsense. When someone suggests our gatherings look like Nazi Germany you call them on it and not let them eat your lunch.

I have been a non Republican for over a decade because the leadership is more willing to dump on the people who stand for what is right within their own party than to stand up to the destructive policies of the left.

Grow some chest hair and fight for what it right. Until you are willing to defend the principles of liberty and the Constitution as the best way for all people to prosper. Until you, like Rush Limbaugh, can call the policies of the President and the Democrats what they are and what they will do to this country. Until you throw out Specter, Snow and Collins I have no confidence that anything in the Republican party has changed and is worth defending.

Protesting Global Warming Today in Washington D.C.

One has to thing God has a sense of humor. Two contrasting stories in the news about sums it up.

Climate concerns spur power plant protest
By Jordy Yager
Posted: 03/02/09 06:53 AM [ET]
Several thousand people are expected to descend on the Capitol Power Plant (CPP) Monday afternoon to protest its continued use of coal.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who last week requested the plant shift to use the more environmentally-friendly natural gas, is planning to hold a press conference of her own Monday morning in support of discontinuing coal use at the plant.

The protest was organized by environmental groups like Greenpeace and the Rainforest Action Network (RAN) who have battled with lawmakers from coal producing states such as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.).

"The more than 2,500 people coming to Washington to call for a solution to the climate crisis and (put) an end to the use of coal are still coming because the climate is still in crisis and coal is still driving that crisis," said Michael Brune, executive director of the RAN.

The counter protest...

Don't Feed the Beast

What does government do for us? How many have suffered from frauds and cheats only to find the courts uninterested in helping bring justice. Even if one does hire a lawyer and prevail in court the court does not make them pay. One still has to, at one's own expense, seek to force the criminal to pay up.

Are there gangs in the neighborhood or drug dealers? Don't expect the police to help. They are too busy writing tickets to help bring in more revenue to the government.

Or what about the citizen who defends his home against criminal invasion. Isn't he then exposed to charges also?

Do we own our property? The tax levied against it says no. Try and not pay it and the government will take your property away. We are renting from the government, our land lord.

How many have sent their children to private school or are home schooling because the public schools are either useless or dangerous, yet one still must pay for the public school. One can send one's children to an out of state collage and pay dearly but illegal immigrants get in state discounts.

The hospitals are full of illegal immigrants who don't pay so the hospitals drive up the costs to the citizen who supports those hospitals and clinics with his tax dollars.

All the while government at all levels is going broke while it builds lavish offices, coddles surly bureaucrats, builds stadiums for sports teams whose ticket prices are too high for regular people to afford and the politicians seek new and elaborate means to tax every activity. They are now looking to legalize drugs and prostitution simply to have something new to tax.

There really is only one solution. Stop Feeding the Beast!

Money is the only language government speaks. It is a beast however; when it gets hungry it will get angry if its food is withheld. We must accept that we will suffer if we stop feeding the beast. We will suffer anyway whether we do so or not. If we were to just start with not paying our personal property taxes it would bring government to its knees. There is no level of government that is not bankrupt. If local government is choked out the others will falter. If local government is beaten people will be emboldened to take on the rest.

Stop Feeding the Beast!
