“A government can be understood as a territorial monopolist of compulsion: an agency that engages in institutionalized property rights violations and the exploitation – in the form of expropriation, taxation, and regulation – of private property owners.” Thorsten Polleit (1)
“The state cannot even exist without committing the crimes of extortion and robbery which states call taxation.” Robert Higgs (2)
“They get you to act through a title that they can regulate, that is statutory bound and that must pay taxes to its creator – and they are the beneficiary of that.” Dean Clifford (3)
“The US flourished for over 120 years without an income tax, and our liberty and prosperity will only benefit from getting rid of the current tax system.“ Ron Paul (4) - emphasis added
“For the first time in human history, supporters of liberty around the world can share information across borders quickly and cheaply. Without the filter of government censors, this information emboldens millions to question governments and promote liberty.” - Ron Paul
“Do we really want to live in a world of police checkpoints, surveillance cameras, and metal detectors? Do we really believe government can provide total security?”
“Internal self governance, by contrast, is a much more powerful regulator of human behavior than any law. This self-governance must be developed from birth, first by parents but later also through the positive influence of relatives and adult role models.” – Ron Paul
An increasing number of Americans see their society devolving into a nightmare scenario like the one Rand projected over a half century ago.
“Every day, our markets are less free, our property less secure, our laws more arbitrary, our officials more corrupt and the ideal of liberty a more distant memory.” – Lew Rockwell
“The sheer number of laws by which the government controls people has mushroomed beyond anything that the Founding Fathers would be able to imagine in their wildest dreams. The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) – which lists all laws enacted by the (U.S.) federal government – grew from just a single book in 1925 to more than 200 volumes in 2010, of which the index alone takes up more than 700 pages. It contains rules for everything under the sun – from how a watchband should look to how onion rings should be prepared in restaurants.” – Karel Beckman
“Those who Sacrifice Liberty for Security deserve Neither.”

Federal Judge Clarifies:
My Injunction Against NDAA Indefinite Detention Applies To ALL Americans
June 8, 2012
As previously reported, Federal District Judge Katherine Forrest, in Manhattan on May 16, 2012 issued a preliminary injunction in Hedges v. Obama, against Government enforcement of a section of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). That section of the NDAA permits detention of any individuals who are viewed as “supporting” or “associated with” terrorists, for the duration of the present, ongoing military hostilities.
On May 25, the Government filed a motion for reconsideration, i.e., asking the judge to change her decision because of important relevant facts or law she had not considered in her ruling. In the normal course of arguing a motion, the plaintiffs are due to file a response to that motion tomorrow, and the Government gets to reply to the plaintiff’s arguments a week later.
However, the Government’s May 25 brief about their motion stated at the outset, that the Government deems the judge’s preliminary injunction order to apply only to the individual plaintiffs in the case, and not more generally, and that it only enjoined enforcement under one sub-section of the NDAA.
On June 6, Judge Forrest issued a new opinion addressing the Government’s expressed views about the scope of her order. Continue reading
“Paul’s defense of liberty and opposition to its contemporary enemies put him at odds with all establishment politicians, both Republican and Democratic.”
“Liberty means to exercise human rights in any manner a person chooses so long as it does not interfere with the exercise of the rights of others. This means, above all else, keeping government out of our lives.”
