The purpose of government is for those who run it to plunder those who do not. Throughout history, governments have used violence, intimidation, coercion, and mass murder to enforce this system. But governments’ first line of “defense” is always a blizzard of lies — about its own alleged benevolence, altruism, heroism, and greatness, along with equally big lies about the “evils” of the civil society, especially the free market.
The current economic crisis, which was instigated by the government’s central bank and its boom-and-bust monetary policies, among other interventions, has once again been blamed on “too little regulation” and too much freedom.
Will Americans ever catch on to this biggest of all of government’s Big Lies?

When Coulter takes aim she ALWAYS hits her target right between the eyes.
Anyone who reads this blog much is probably getting the message.
I love Ann Coulter. She ALWAYS makes me laugh out loud.
Her opposition hates her for one reason.
SHE IS DEADLY RIGHT!
Worse she makes them laughing stocks. They have one defense … foam at the mouth and call her names.
Personally as you all know I think what is good for the goose is good for the gander. They can dish (and do viciously) it out? Well they better be willing to take it back in kind.
We the middle ground are tired of the unchecked stupidity being foisted our way by mostly ignorant ranting liberals. I learned long ago that these people are on the ropes when their assessment of a situation consists of denigration and name calling only.
The tactic is simple “let me TRY and drag them down to my level”.
Here is what Ann has to say on the subject of strong sexy women who can actually think on their own:
Not even Dick Cheney can incite the blood-curdling rage of liberals at the sight of a sexy evangelical Christian. Paula Jones, Katherine Harris, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin and, most recently, Miss California, Carrie Prejean, have all come under a frenzy of attacks from liberals.
Christians are supposed to be fat, balding sweaty little men with bad complexions. It’s liberals who are supposed to be the sexy ones. (I know that from watching “The West Wing” and all movies starring Julia Roberts.)
But sadly for liberals, in real life, the fat, balding sweaty little guy with the bad complexion is Perez Hilton and the smoking-hot babe is Carrie Prejean.
This apparent contradiction incites violent anger in liberals, triggering their famous “flight or flight” response. So liberals are, once again, launching furious attacks on a beautiful Christian in a fit of pique similar to the one directed at Joan of Arc.
First, the Miss USA contest held a press conference to announce that Prejean had breast implants. Take a Christian position in public and Satan’s handmaidens will turn all your secrets into front-page news.
Next, a photographer released a single cheesecake photo of Prejean. This prompted liberal reporters who have never met a Christian to proclaim that Christians were outraged by the photo. Liberals believe abortion is a sacrament, but smoking, wearing short skirts and modeling lingerie are mortal sins. (And if wearing women’s underwear is a basis for being disqualified from the pageant, that’s the end of Perez Hilton’s judging career.)
While I was bouncing around the internet I happened onto an interesting article posted by an author who had written a book on the matter. (Book linked below.)
Since Barack Obama likes to pattern himself after FDR and the New Deal … it caught my attention. I could never understand why people would be happy with a 19% unemployment rate … at least happy enough to re-elect a president over and over.
Were they fed skewed facts?
I have often wondered if women (who were not usually bread winners back then) were counted into these statistics. If we took the % of woman out of that statistic does the percent then rise to 38%? Is that really what we can look forward to under the HOPE PRESIDENT?
Oh wait I know now HOPE means I HOPE none of this drops on my front door.
Hope then was suppose to be just past the horizon or around the next corner?
Sound anything like what passes the lips of Barack Obama almost daily?
Why am I getting the feeling Obama WILL SAY ANYTHING to keep the lid on this powder keg?
Notice this tactic at hand today?
Let’s use an analogy to make the point: Imagine that in the last days of his presidency, George W. Bush declared a new policy. His spokespeople explained, “It is rather misleading to say that the unemployment rate in October 2008 was 6.6 percent, because that implies millions of Americans are destitute. But in fact they are all receiving generous assistance from the government in various forms. If we say that their ‘job’ is filling out the paperwork for unemployment claims, then the true unemployment rate is more like 0.4 percent. Those are the people who truly have no source of income, and need to be helped.”
Would any left-liberal sign on to that rationale? Of course not. Now, there is no objectively hard and fast line between a “real” government-provided job versus a “phony” job such as “filling out unemployment forms.” In fact, a purist could note that all government jobs are artificial and not indicative of true productive value for consumers, since their compensation is derived through involuntary taxation.

Some of the states are beginning to realize the severity of the threat from the Fascist in Washington DC. Most notably Texas with it’s declaration of sovereignty last April. Some states are sticking it Washington’s eye like Montana which passed gun legislation the exempts Montana gun manufactures and consumers from all federal gun legislation. Parts of Michigan, Pennsylvania and all of Missouri are crafting legislation that is opposed to the fascist march of the politicians in Washington. Some of the states realize the ruthlessness of the threat from Washington and the future instability and likelihood of war with the rest of the world.
As the blog below on this web site illustrates the increased foreign debt to 35% of the GDP to the rest of the world by the United States is extremely telling in the direction the politicians are taking America.
The fascist are busy arming themselves with the arsenal of tools needed to establish a dictatorship. Military loyalty would be the first tool. Nobody thinks Tiananmen Square can happen here in the United States but it could as more people realize the brutality of the regime in Washington.
The second is just as important to the fanatical authority ravenous despots in Washington and that is the ability to destroy the economy. To put it bluntly the power junkies in Washington are filling up the debt needle and sticking into the Americans people veins. The needle is in the patients arm and the thugs are about to administer the overdose to the people. Soon to be knocked out and unable to fight. You want to destroy and enslave a people? Inflation has been a tool of the wicked and incompetent for centuries. Ever since the invention of “fiat” or paper money the politicians have utilized this financial tool to their advantage to plunder and destroy the people’s ability to fight tyrants. Hitler used inflation on the 1920’s Germany to present his case to the German people that dictatorship and killing millions of Jews was needed to restore everyday life.
For years I disagreed with business commentator Peter Schiff about the return to the gold standard but watching the Federal Reserves performance and acquiescence to this fraudulent re-inflation of the dollar I simply cannot argue for the Federal Reserve or its role anymore. I give up. Mr. Schiff is right and I am wrong. Get rid of the Federal Reserve and tie the currency to gold. Gold will fluctuate and there will be disruption in economic activity but any bad is insignificant to the destruction the Federal Reserve has twice now, the first being the facilitation of the Great Depression through ignorance and indifference, and now looking the other way or encouraging the housing bubble and re-inflating our currency today. You win the argument Mr. Schiff. All the worlds central banks have one thing in common, they made or facilitated this mess and work with social and fascist politicians who goal is to financially enslave millions with high taxes and little economic freedom and opportunity.
So as our reportedly Parkinson disease riddled from too much cocaine abuse in his 20’s communist educated half Negro president reads his teleprompter stirring that bobble head to the left then the right for the next four years the wheels of dictatorship churn behind his empty mind.
When the inflation hits Obama and the democrats might be swept out of power. Perfectly logical assumption and the party that will be swept in will be better? Not if it’s the Republicans. All the Republican actions of the last decade should tell the American public that they are in lockstep with the democrats. They pretend to disagree on abortion, stem cell research and other issues that don’t affect the majority of Americans but on the issue of dictatorship they very much agree and work with the democrats whenever push comes to shove. We have seen the Republicans sell out time after time on bail outs, oil drilling, prescription drug benefits, education and the list goes on. People and states need to accept the facts that if the Republicans gain power in 2010 the dictatorship move forward at a slower pace. And that it.
The best hope for the future and avoiding a fate similar to what happened to Germany in the 1940’s is for the states like Texas to oppose federal power in any way that they can. Pass state laws in immigration, guns, and taxes and take them all the way to the Supreme Court. When times get desperate, and they will when hyper inflation hits our country, pass laws allowing for state currencies and forcing employees to write checks for federal taxes instead of withholding. States need to protect their people from the plundering federal government. Finally states should be prepared as was the case with the Alamo to fight for their right to live in peace and prosperity from a tyrannical dictatorship our founding fathers warned us about.
I love Ann Coulter.
Her latest rant is directed at those who consider waterboarding a war crime.
It is my firm belief that every one of these waterboard protesters would in a hot new york minute waterboard anyone who had information that would save THEIR loved one. If they say they would not?
You can count on one thing THEY LIE!
Its pretty easy to be an idéologue when someone elses ass is on the line and yours or those you care about is not.
Is Henican a hypocrite?
HERE is the Coulter article.
