Don’t Give Up Anything

PI2012 #689 – Don’t Give Up Anything


“Either you be or you don’t be.” ~  Golda Meir


December 2nd, 2012

Liberty Lovers, Every American Taxpayer Now “Owes” “The (federal) State” $142,038, every citizen $51,792.

“You’ve got to start making the compromises that arrive at a consensus and move the country forward.”  Colin Powell

People Are Free To write “The State” checks for as much money as they please.  Americans who wish can donate as much of their property as they choose to “The State.”  Let President Obama call for wealthy Americans to voluntarily donate.  See what happens.

“Compromise is but the sacrifice of one right or good in the hope of retaining another – too often ending in the loss of both.” ~  Tryon Edwards

Pontification Over Fiscal (Deficit) cliff posturing includes varied ideas about what republicans must give up to get a ‘compromise.’  Congressional republicans, if they are to remain true to their constituents, should give up nothing.

“Compromise:  An agreement between two men to do what both agree is wrong.” ~  Lord Edward Cecil

Presuming Some Americans Have to surrender more of their property to avoid America’s fiscal (deficit) cliff is misguided thinking.  More likely, it is rhetoric from tax hike advocates.  Americans are loath to saunter up to ultimatums.

“Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God’s approval.” ~  Thomas S. Monson

Ultimatums, If Ultimatums Are to be, should come from sovereign self-governing Americans who have reached their boiling points over selective, arbitrary, and discriminatory legislation, taxation, and regulation.  Fiscal (deficit) cliffs would be no more.

“From the beginning of our history the country has been afflicted with compromise.  It is by compromise that human rights have been abandoned.” ~  Charles Sumner

People Intending To Live In Liberty do not allow legislators – or other public officials within These United States of America, to subsidize private enterprise with public money.  They uphold free markets.

Let Freedom Ring


— It’s your property, not “State,” property.

Best Wishes,
