RON PAUL quote of the day…

David Davis 

I liked this from Ron Paul (I’m a Lancashire Bumpkin, so who is Ron Paul, and what pop group does he play for?) (SEE the violet stuff below my red stuff!)

You’ll be pleased to know that I’ve finished french-polishing staircases for the day, and I’ve now acquainted myself with what Ron Paul is and what he is for. if he does truly believe what he says down there in violet, then he’s the right man for the job. He could even be the president that BARRY GOLDWATER nevere got to be. I rememebr that Godlwater said something strikingly similar in, oh, about 1964?

Few Americans understand that all government action is inherently coercive. If nothing else, government action requires taxes. If taxes were freely paid, they wouldn’t be called taxes, they’d be called donations. If we intend to use the word freedom in an honest way, we should have the simple integrity to give it real meaning: Freedom is living without government coercion. So when a politician talks about freedom for this group or that, ask yourself whether he is advocating more government action or less.

God knows what that gobbledygook means at the bottom. You lot better click it I expect!

Or perhaps not……Actually I think WordPress meant to display it as this;

Much better! Why didn’t I just use AOL as usual…?

    Freedom is living without coercion. Does it really matter to the coerced whether the coercer is a government or not?

  2. No, of course not.

    But coercers that are not governments tend to not be able to hold onto their coercer status for very long. if they are commercial monopolies, then they and governments freely admist and have always done so, that the threat of government force is what holds them in being.

    Coercers that are governments (or peritribal, pre-capitalist, pre-enlightenment handbooks that masquerade as religions with thruth-monopoly, are the worst sort, for they deny the possibility or thought of opposition based on reason.

    This is where the West wins, and everything else loses.
