    So far, Muslims have their greatest victory over us by making us shift into defensive living with regard to them. We tread with fear of "offending" them, of inciting world-wide riots by Muslims against us, and of always trying to curry favor with irrationalists. We used to go about life, guided by our own thoughts and desires, and no defensiveness. It is our fault that we let them dominate our behavior. STOP IT! Americans do not live defensively! Let savages fear us!


  • Ideas power men. Men power cultures. Cultures power civilizations. Civilizations power history. Ideas are the fuel of man's mind.
  • It is not a question of whether man chooses to be guided by [philosophy]: he is not equipped to live without it. (Ayn Rand)
  • History is philosophy teaching by example (Lord Bolingbroke)
  • The trouble with nations is that there is an unequal distribution of capitalism. (Rush Limbaugh)
  • Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear. (Thomas Jefferson)

Coincidentally, I was arguing with some nobodies, on another website, who where trying to say that I was not ready for Barak Hussein Obama for superficial reasons when I suggested that I’d readily vote for Thomas Sowell. I hadn’t thought about it before. Reflecting for a moment, I realized that he’s light-years above any actual elected official that might actually run.

Williams and Sowell! That image makes me want to cry when I think of who will actually run in the Republican primary. I like Tancredo – or what little I know of him – but let’s face it, Sowell (who I happen to know more about than Williams) has a depth of understanding and an ability to communicate that surpasses the pack. What law on earth prevents such men from running? It’s time we break that law!



Ain't it the truth ("That image makes me want to cry when I think of who will actually run in the Republican primary".)

There's such a HUGE pool of incredibly good thinkers "out there" who could reverse the downward spiral (provided they had a reasonably rational Congress to support their efforts).

I suppose they will never run for office, though; almost by definition, politicians are control freaks - passing laws etc. is necessary, but they see this as a means of micromanaging the lives of others.

This kind of power-lusting is simply not in the nature of the Williamses and Sowells and so many others who devote their time to examining ways to free people to control their own lives, limited only by the respect for individual rights.
