"The lowliest, indigent, white redneck who lives in a rusted-out old school bus down by the river in Tennessee is 'privileged,' by definition, whereas the children of multimillionaire Barack Obama or multimillionaire Tiger Woods are 'not privileged.' In fact, since they are black they are, by definition, 'oppressed' by the white redneck who lives in the rusted-out old school bus down by the river."
"Everyone once took for granted that the goal was to seize the federal apparatus and impose their vision on the country.
How about just abandoning this crazy, inhumane task?
Why not admit the differences are irreconcilable, and simply go our separate ways?
Is this not obviously the most humane solution?
Or is there some expectation that somehow, down the road, we'll all be reconciled?
To the contrary, it's only going to get worse.
Forcing these irreconcilable parties to continue along in this way is what normal people would call 'extremist.'
Radical decentralization and secession, on the other hand, are the obvious and necessary solution.
And you know it's the sensible solution, because no one is allowed to discuss it."
"If the pro-gun control people want to blame someone besides the man
in there pulling the trigger, the man who illegally got a weapon, maybe
they should look in the mirror. Maybe they should consider their own
complicity in making guns more difficult for law-abiding citizens to
carry. Maybe they should look at their part in this war on guns and gun
owners. Perhaps their derision played a part in seeing to it that no one
in that church had the means to stop that killer."
"If the national anthem is of such importance, why do we not perform
it in everything we do? Is breakfast, or the start of our workday, or
going to a grocery store, or undergoing root-canal work at the
dentist’s, to be preceded by this tune? Do we refrain from extending
such collective foolishness into our daily lives because the numbers of
persons are not sufficient to convert individuals into fungible
components of a mob?"
"National borders have never really been about how nations
self-identify. They have always been about access to resources and the
ability to impose taxes. Politics is about how, and on whom, those
revenues are spent. The larger a country, the more people it can tax.
The larger a government, the more professional politicians and civil
servants it can employ."
"Those who are determined to be ‘offended’ will discover a
provocation somewhere. We cannot possibly adjust enough to please the
fanatics, and it is degrading to make the attempt."
"If the flag is symbolic of government and that government lies at
every turn, enslaves its people, steals from their labor, passes laws
that are an execration to their Christian faith, takes from them their
liberty, mandates the murder of 1 million babies a year, imports tens of
thousands of immigrants to replace American workers and drive down
wages, and that makes war on other countries that have not threatened
us, why should any acknowledge its presence with more than a sneer?"
"The claim that 'diversity is America’s greatest strength' is the
biggest of all lies. The truth is that diversity is America’s greatest
weakness. We see this not only in America, but in countries like
Germany, France, and Belgium, where far-left leaders have destroyed
their once proud cultures with immigration policies that ignore the
wants and needs of their own citizens.
As is always the case, when I use the term diversity, I am not
referring to a person’s skin color, be he white, brown, yellow, or
other. Diversity is about a person’s cultural beliefs and practices.
The hard truth is that tribalism, which has been around since the
dawn of civilization, is the underpinning of a civilized and peaceful
society. The reality that those on the Radical Left (and many in the
RINO camp) refuse to accept is that people prefer to be around others
who are culturally most like them and, the corollary, they have little
desire to be in close proximity to those who are culturally different.
When those in power try to force tribes with different cultural
values to live together, it tends to engender hatred and violence, which
is why the government should remove itself from the
social-experimentation business and let tribes live separately and in
peace with other tribes."
“'Social justice' can only be achieved through voluntary interactions
among individuals within a given social unit. Stealing from some and
giving to others through a concept of forced redistribution only creates
control and therefore injustice; an unjustly created permanent victim
group and an unjustly created permanent dependent group.
That’s not social justice, that’s social control."
"Stalemate in Korea? Perpetual trouble in Korea? Loss in Vietnam?
Continual war in the Middle East and Afghanistan? Confrontation with
Iran, Russia and China? Turmoil in Libya and Africa? Worldwide American
commitments and possibilities for warfare? Where exactly are the just
compensations to taxpayers for the vast takings devoted to the U.S.
military establishment? Where is this mythical 'national security' that
has been the object?"
"To be blunt about it, in 1954 Armistice Day was hijacked by a
militaristic US congress and renamed Veterans Day. Today few Americans
understand the original purpose of Armistice Day, or even remember it.
The message of peace seeking has been all but erased. Worst of all,
Veterans Day has devolved into a hyper-nationalistic quasi-religious
celebration of war and the putatively valiant warriors who wage it. We
no longer have a national day to recognize or reflect upon international
