"You are in love with intelligence, until it frightens you. For your ideas are terrifying and your hearts are faint. Your acts of pity and cruelty are absurd, committed with no calm, as if they were irresistible. Finally, you fear blood more and more. Blood and time."

Who writes this crap?

"This is the most important video you will watch this year"
Damn, I thought it was "How to Build Hover-shoes".

Ah, common sense; the virtue touted most by those with no coherent argument.
"But, it's just common sense".
No fear.
Tom Paine is long dead and, in any case was far younger than this angry old fart when he penned his pamphlet and thus, at a stroke, gave every brain-dead twit lacking a thesis a rallying cry.
It surprises me how few neo-natal/omega-cons realize that none of the founding fathers would share even an elevator with most of them.
And taxpayer/patriots, here are two ways to either lower or eliminate your taxes:
Be rich. You'll hire lots of accountants and lawyers but you'll come out way ahead in the long run. It's not your job to pay for things.
Be poor. Blood from a turnip ya' know.
Did you notice how many Republican buzz-phrases popped up?
"Silent majority" for example. Wasn't that Agnew?
BTW Whored members, he was Nixon's vice-president.
"Entitlement Program" That's a term old Tom would have picked right up on.
And they've been "...run into bankruptcy." Sez who?
Government incompetence; you'll get no argument from me on that one.
Check out how our strong-willed, determined, clear-eyed, no-bull-shit president has managed to borrow the nation into, not bankruptcy - that'll be China's call - just monumental debt.
What's more he'd done it on a completely elective expenditure. His hobby war.
Just like individual Americans only they piss it away on SUVs.
Final word:
Q: What's the difference between the US and yogurt?
A: Yogurt has a living culture.
We're still working on ours. We're just babies at it.
Now, culture... China, 5000 years as a centralized government (The Ogre acknowledges "...a long and colorful history") that's a culture.
Mexico has a more coherent culture than we have.
I don't know what we're so afraid of losing.
Are dumbass rednecks afraid the guys working at the car wash are using their secret language to disparage their car.
Is everyone's "press '1' for Spanish" finger falling off?
Or are they just a lot of xenophobic (No, not an irrational fear of Warrior Princesses) spoiled, marginally informed fear-mongers.
Aren't these idiots aware that the reason the cars in the ditch is the moron that they put in office?
This is my theory: All the recent "Libertarians" are conservatives who voted for Bush and are - and this is something at least - embarrassed by their error.
Yeah, we get it. You fucked up.
Now, please just sit down and shut up. The grown-ups are talking.
Common sense, Puh-leaze.

Uh, there seems to be too many stars on the flag in the background to make this authentic. Thus, this is not a real founding father. In all fairness to the line drawn in our soil, if Sam Adams or even Thomas Jefferson were here today and saw what was being said and done in their names they would never stop throwing up.

Sorry but I couldn't get through the whole thing. It kept conjuring up images of the "1824" Texas flag. There sure were a shit load of Tejanos that spoke Spanish down in them parts. Even Gadsden would listen to this guy and then kick his ass with a walking stick. "Usted para tread en mí Venta de La Mesilla."

You're correct. The so called Modern Libertarians today are nothing more than a bunch of disgraced Republicans that got their asses thrown out of the GOP.

This crap is not true Libertarianism as it was originally indoctrinated. I am a Libertarian and I can tell you that this guy is at least 75 % bullshit.

What true Libertarians want is the behemoth that has become our government out of our lives. Government should be in place to uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights and protect the people in its land. That is all they should be doing.

I agree with him on one or two things. I do believe that the USA spends far too much time in other countries' business and playing police for the world.

I also believe we should get rid of Social Security, Medicare and all the other feel good programs that do nothing for the people it is supposed to help and bleeds the average American working person dry.

I could have built a nice nest egg for retirement on what I have paid in bullshit taxes for feel good, do nothing programs and I am just you average working Joe. I started out dirt poor and worked my way through an education. There is no reason that every American citizen can't do the same.

My poor mother was a German immigrant. She came here, learned the language, got an education and her citizenship. She worked her ass off all her life and what does she have to show for it? Not fucking much because she paid Social Security, Medicare and all the other bullshit taxes thinking that it would be enough when she retired.

What a joke. Here SS check is around $800 a month. She pays 1/4 of that back for Medicare and supplemental health care insurance. Where can you go in the USA and live off of $600 a month? That would not even pay the taxes on the house and lot she paid off before she was forced into retirement.

We can thank the Democrats and the Republicans for that.

My 2 cents. I could write a book on what's wrong with our government and how neither of the two major political parties in the USA will ever do anything except take more from the working class and hand it to people that refuse to work and refuse to try.
