John Whitehead: Today’s presidential hopefuls must jump through a series of hoops aimed at selecting the candidates best suited to serve the interests of the American police state. Candidates who are anti-war, anti-militarization, anti-Big Money, pro-Constitution, pro-individual freedom and unabashed advocates for the citizenry need not apply.

Jack Perry has it right, but golly-gee, seems that almost nobody listens, right in line with what we’ve been saying here for some years now!
“What will we do without the government?! Oh, I don’t know, be at peace with other nations perhaps. Be less at risk of being fined, jailed, or assessed an endless procession of taxes, fees, penalties, and obligations.”

Rousseau was perhaps the first to popularize the fiction now taught in civics classes about how the government was created. It holds that men sat down together and rationally thought out the concept of government as a solution to problems that confronted them. The government of the United States was, however, the first to be formed in any way remotely like Rousseau’s ideal. Even then, it had far from universal support from the three million colonials whom it claimed to represent. The U.S. government, after all, grew out of an illegal conspiracy to overthrow and replace the existing government.
Fay Dickson: “It is my firm belief that America is slowly dying. The cause of her demise will be political correctness. The meaning of this term according to the dictionary:
My meaning of the term ? Liberal stupidity ! I have gathered several sources which give examples of the utter blindness of the lib/prog mindset and what it is doing to our nation. That list follows. I hope you will examine a few of them and understand why I cry at the situation we find ourselves in today”
Judge Andrew Napolitano: What if none of the candidates recognizes that government is an artificial creation based on force and ought to be exercised minimally? What if none of them understands that prosperity comes from the free choices of investors, workers, and consumers, and not from the decisions of the federal government’s central planners?

… You know there’s a better way. America doesn’t need a central state, it doesn’t need a central bank, it doesn’t need a political class, and in fact it doesn’t need politics at all. It certainly doesn’t need an endless election season. What it needs is the peaceful and cooperative power of an unleashed market economy, coupled with a commitment to non-intervention in the affairs of other nations.

The reality is that government programs create losers, victims of injustice. If you want to reduce injustice then you should think about how to reduce government. On this view the only ethical decision for a well-born youth eager for money, power, and the love of beautiful women would be to lead peaceful protests to reduce government on the likelihood that any reduction in government force would also reduce injustice.
