http://www.usdebtclock.org: Every American Taxpayer Now “Owes” “The (federal) State” $141,629, every citizen $51,598.  

“Everything government has it gets from you.” ~Lew Rockwell

Presidential Election 2012 Leaves America more divided than did Election 2008.  Electoral votes gave President Obama clear wins both times.  Election 2008 popular vote was 66.8million to 58.3million; Election 2012 looks to be 58.7million to 56.1million

“Between two groups of people who want to make different kinds of worlds, I see no remedy but force.” ~  Oliver Wendell Holmes

President Obama, Popular And electoral votes notwithstanding, must get his initiatives through Congress.  Election 2012 left Congressional power as it was before votes were tallied.  While Mr. Obama won a second term, his ‘mandate’ lost some ground.

“Nobody wants a judge to be subject to the political whim of the moment.” ~  Stephen Bryer

Americans Will Know Fairly soon where and how Mr. Obama intends to move America.  He would be wise not to ignore American voters who elect Congress as well as Presidents.  Mr. Obama may no longer legitimately blame his predecessor.

“The power to tax involves the power to destroy.” ~  Justice John Marshall

Americans, Despite Election 2012 outcomes, continue to face selective, arbitrary, and discriminatory legislation, taxation, and regulation.  Most egregious amongst them is direct taxation (property confiscation).

“Capital as such is not evil; it is its wrong use that is evil.  Capital in some form will always be needed.” ~  Mohandas Gandhi

People Intending To Live In Liberty do not allow legislators – or other public officials within These United States of America, to enact legislation or regulations requiring any private business to accept collective bargaining organizations. They stand by free markets and limited government.

“There is no such thing as a good tax.” ~  Winston Churchill

 

Romney Backers And Senate majority hopefuls, on cue when President Obama topped 270 Election 2012 electoral votes, began making myriad excuses and looking to assign blame for their losses.  Typical behavior of unprepared contenders.  Votes are won by perception.

“Your perceptions are often far more accurate than you are willing to believe.”
Claudia Black

Romney Backers And Senate majority hopefuls could be, literally, messengers from Jehovah Himself and fall on their proverbial swords absent persuasive presentation.  Not enough voters bought their rhetoric, regardless how valid it may have been.

“People see what they want to see and what people want to see never has anything to do with the truth.” ~  Roberto Bolaño

Brit Hume, A Day or so before Election 2012, observed America’s electorate was despondent over financial-economic woes and simply wanted “stuff.”  Now re-elected President Obama, all said and done, offered American voters “stuff.”

“The mice think they are right, but my cat eats them anyways.” “This is the point, reality is nothing, perception is everything.”~  Terry Goodkind

Republicans, Conservatives, Free Market proponents – whoever – won’t compete successfully against paternalistic ‘government’ (“The State”) until they can convince voters they (voters) can have whatever “stuff” they wish when they act like sovereign self-governing Americans.

“The dice cannot read their own spots.” ~  Frank Herbert

People Intending To Live In Liberty do not allow legislators – or other public officials within These United States of America, to enact legislation or regulations requiring any private business to accept collective bargaining organizations. They stand by free markets and limited government.

“When government accepts responsibility for people, then people no longer take responsibility for themselves.”

~  George Pataki

Liberty Lovers,

Georgetown University Student Sandra Fluke played Congress, President Obama, and more than a few Americans about as well as they can be played.  She persuaded them risk and cost of her behavior choices are other people’s responsibility.  What else in her life will Sandra Fluke demand her fellow Americans pay for so she can enjoy fruits of other people’s labor?

“The willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life is the source from which self-respect springs.” ~  Joan Didion

Fluke’s Eloquent, Compassionate Appeal for mandatory contraceptive coverage in health insurance was based on Fluke and other female Georgetown students avoiding contraceptive costs amounting to some $3,000 over their time at Georgetown by lawfully forcing contraceptive insurance coverage.  Who is responsible for risks in Sandra Fluke’s personal behavior?  Sandra Fluke, not insurance companies, not other Americans, not “The State.”

“If you want your children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders.”~  Abigail Van Buren

Sandra Fluke Is An adult.  Sandra Fluke is a law student, not a mentally challenged person.  She is welcome to make voluntary social life choices as she likes.  She is not welcome to have anyone but Sandra Fluke bear risks and costs of her voluntary choices.

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.~  Jim Rohn   

People Intending To Live In Liberty do not allow legislators – or other public officials within These United States of America, to permit federal authorities or courts to define or limit their 10th Amendment powers beyond specific Constitutional constraint.  They surrender neither their property nor their sovereignty.

“When good people in any country cease their vigilance and struggle, then evil men prevail.” ~  Pearl S. Buck

 Liberty Lovers,

 Americans Will Not Be Free from overreaching “State” authority until they exercise their sovereignty, uphold self-government, and take responsibility for their destiny.  Nor will they be free from private sector exploitation unless they do likewise. 

 “I have always thought the actions of men are the best interpreters of their thoughts.” ~  John Locke

“The greatest menace to freedom is an inert people.” ~  Louis D. Brandeis

 “Knowing is not enough; we must apply!” ~  Johann Wolfgang von

Liberty is Self-Determination. Liberty is declared for Americans by America’s founding Constitutional principles.  Chief amongst those principles is a recognition of private property ownership.  Americans, not “The State” own their property and preside over its use.

“It is the job of thinking people not to be on the side of the executioners.” ~  Albert Camus

“Thou shalt not be a victim.  Thou shalt not be a perpetrator,  Above all, thou shalt not be a bystander.” ~   Holocaust Museum, Washington, DC

 Shoring Up Opportunity for self-determination is easily done by abolishing direct taxation; by redistributing power, not wealth; and by implementing citizen-controlled taxation.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ~  Margaret Mead

“Action is the antidote to despair.” ~  Joan Baez

“The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.” ~  Herbert Spencer

People Intending To Live In Liberty do not allow legislators – or other public officials within These United States of America to overrule commonwealth/state (10th Amendment) sovereignty as determined and defined by citizens of those respective Commonwealths.  They protect their lives, liberty, and pursuit of happiness as they see fit.
