"Then you will see the rise of the men of the double standardthe men who live by force, yet count on those who live by trade to create the value of their looted moneythe men who are the hitchhikers of virtue. In a moral society, these are the criminals, and the statutes are written to protect you against them. But when a society establishes criminals-by-right and looters-by-lawmen who use force to seize the wealth of disarmed victimsthen money becomes its creators' avenger. Such looters believe it safe to rob defenseless men, once they've passed a law to disarm them. But their loot becomes the magnet for other looters, who get it from them as they got it. Then the race goes, not to the ablest at production, but to those most ruthless at brutality. When force is the standard, the murderer wins over the pickpocket. And then that society vanishes, in a spread of ruins and slaughter.
"Do you wish to know whether that day is coming? Watch money. Money is the barometer of a society's virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsionwhen you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothingwhen you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favorswhen you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against youwhen you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrificeyou may know that your society is doomed. Money is so noble a medium that is does not compete with guns and it does not make terms with brutality. It will not permit a country to survive as half-property, half-loot.--Atlas Shrugged, an excerpt from Francisco D'Anconia's money speech
Reformed sheeple. Staunch conservative. Politically ignorant to some, but trying to learn.
From the “How’d You Get Your Nick?” thread:
I live in the SF Bay Area and as a consequence, feel somewhat like a freakish outcast when a discussion moves toward politics. I feel forced to hide my political identity, because in my area most right wing values are viewed as hate speech.
I am a Christian. I strongly believe in 2A. I dont agree with homosexuality. I am against illegal immigration and any form of amnesty regardless of any clever disguise they try to wrap it in. They shouldnt have come here in the first place and should all go home.
9/11 showed us that legal immigration has pitfalls as well. They were here on expired visas obtained with false documents.
Islam, A Religion of Peace: Sura (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution of Muslims is worse than slaughter of non-believers...and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."
Sura (5:33) - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"
Sura (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"
Bukhari (52:177) - Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."
Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared," Kill any Jew who falls under your power."
Ibn Ishaq: 327 - Allah said, A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion. الاسلام هو شر لا مثيل لها ، ويجب القضاء عليه -excerpt from the koran(thanks Candor7)
I believe Islam is a Satanic death cult, and understanding the concepts of global Jihad and Al-Taqiya, I have a tendency to fear or distrust any of my Muslim neighbors. Therefore I refuse to vote for Obama, and believe anyone who does is woefully ignorant or aiding the enemy in their attempt at an inside takeover.
I believe we should drill at home, wherever the oil happens to be and the nanny staters and enviroweenies should be on a microleash. I believe free-trade and overtaxation and regulation of businesses have ruined us and threatened our national security.
I believe we should have nothing to do with the UN, and that the UN doesnt belong on American soil. I believe the global warming theory is bull s*it.
I dont believe in billions of dollars spent in foreign aid for the WOD or AIDS. I dont believe in billions of dollars being wasted at home on people who shouldnt have sneaked in here to begin with. If these Marxist leaders believe in redistribution so much, why not keep it all at home and use the money to help AMERICANS or rebuild the military that the Clintons gutted like a fish?
In my area that makes me: A hypocritical bible thumper. A gun nut. A homophobic. A racist. A bigot. A destroyer of Gaia. A protectionist. A warmonger.
The Hegelian Principle You remember the steps: The first step (thesis) is to create a problem. The second step (anti-thesis) is to generate opposition to the problem (fear, panic, hysteria). The third step (synthesis) is to offer ** the solution ** to the problem created in step one, --- change which would have been impossible to impose on the people without proper psychological conditioning achieved in stages one and two."
My Conservative Identity:
You are an Anti-government Gunslinger, also known as a libertarian conservative. You believe in smaller government, states rights, gun rights, and that, as Reagan once said, The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, Im from the government and Im here to help.
I try very hard not to offend anyone or hurt anyone's feelings.
If you are extremely butt hurt by anything I post you should probably seek therapy or knock the chip off your shoulder because you are probably spoiling for a fight everywhere you go. That is not productive. Have a nice day.
