Peter Ustinov — 'Terrorism is the war of the poor, and war is the terrorism of the rich.'
"The idea that you can merchandise candidates for high office like breakfast cereal is the ultimate indignity to the democratic process."
-Democratic candidate Adlai Stevenson, 1956
"...It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.."
"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one *makes* them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted-and you create a nation of law-breakers-and then you cash in on the guilt." * Ayn Rand, "Atlas Shrugged"
The earth does not belong to man,
Man belongs to the earth.
All things are connected, like blood which connects one family.
Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the children of the earth.
Man did not weave the web of life.
He is but a strand in it.
Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.
attributed to Chief Seattle 1854
quote from Alister Crowly:
"The more certain you are, the more certain it is that you have placed a limitation on your mind.
The only proper purpose of a government is to protect man's rights, which means: to protect him from physical violence.,...,The only proper functions of government are: the police, to protect you from criminals; the army, to protect you from foreign invaders; and the courts, to protect your property and contracts from breach or fraud by others, to settle disputes by rational rules, according to objective law." ---John Galt"
If you choose, not to decide, you still have made a choice..."Rush
Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot
of others. . .they send forth a ripple of hope, and crossing each other
from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples
build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression
and resistance." --Robert F. Kennedy

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner."

Prohibition was introduced as a fraud; it has been nursed as a fraud.
It is wrapped in the livery of Heaven, but it comes to serve the devil.
It comes to regulate by law our appetites and our daily lives.
It comes to tear down liberty and build up fanaticism, hypocrisy, and intolerance. It comes to confiscate by legislative decree the property of many of our fellow citizens. It comes to send spies, detectives, and informers into our homes; to have us arrested and carried before courts and condemned to fines and imprisonments. It comes to dissipate the sunlight of happiness, peace, and prosperity in which we are now living and to fill our land with alienations, estrangements, and bitterness.
It comes to bring us evil-- only evil-- and that continually. Let us rise
in our might as one and overwhelm it with such indignation that we shall never hear of it again as long as grass grows and water runs."
Roger Q. Mills, 1887: "
Life is no brief candle for me. It is sort of a splendid torch which I
have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as
possible before handing it on to future generations"-George Bernard Shaw
Only lawyers are allowed to run for office in this country of the people,
by the people, and for the people. They pay is actually not so hot,
but the benefits are great. And you get to meet a lot of famous people,
pardon all your friends, go on great vacations, always get good seats,
and every now and then toast another country that pissed you off.... JP
