Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

““The real damage is done by those millions who want to ’survive.’ The honest men who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes. Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don’t like to make waves or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature. Those who live small, mate small, die small. It’s the reductionist approach to life: if you keep it small, you’ll keep it under control. If you don’t make any noise, the bogeyman won’t find you. But it’s all an illusion, because they die too, those people who roll up their spirits into tiny little balls so as to be safe. Safe?! From what? Life is always on the edge of death; narrow streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle burns itself out just like a flaming torch does. I choose my own way to burn.””     Sophie Scholl

Happy Thanksgiving, Love Congress

by Kevin

Our masters in the District of Corruption have decided to give us a Thanksgiving day present. One of the political heirs of Barry Goldwater, Congressman Jeff Flake (R-AZ), exposes this gift.:

Mesa, Arizona, Nov 22 – Republican Congressman Jeff Flake, who represents Arizona’s Sixth District, today highlighted pork projects contained in the Agriculture appropriations bill for fiscal year 2006.

This week’s egregious earmarks: $234,000 for the National Wild Turkey Federation, $600,000 for cranberry production conservation in Massachusetts and Wisconsin, $1,497,000 for potato research, and $500,000 for the Corn Growers Associations in Iowa, Missouri, and Illinois.

“I’m sure that taxpayers aren’t giving thanks for the cornucopia of pork this year,” said Flake.

Happy Thanksgiving, now bend over.
