Watch List = No Gun Rights… Again!

It is amazing to me how bad ideas in Washington never seem to die. They are like vampires, that instead of blood want to suck liberties and freedom away instead. They just keep coming back over and over again. You think you put a stake through the heart of one of these freedom robbing ideas, but nope, here it comes again! Here we are after another horrific terrorist act performed by Radical Islamic Jihadist and again the talk moves to gun control. I have of course written about this before.

However this time I wish to report that someone in the Huffington Post of all places actually has some semblance of the problem and what the NRA is against. Let’s see if the dimwits in the Democrat Party can understand THIS time around. I doubt it, but like a hopeful parent I keep hoping the morons will catch on, but they never do.

As pointed out in this Huffington Post article, it explains the issue with the NRA and these ever expanding black lists from government is the absolute lack of due process involved in getting on a list, finding out you are on it, and getting yourself off it if you are innocent.

It seems the government REALLY hates this whole 5th Amendment thing. It is just too hard for them to go out and present real evidence and hold a trial and all that other “hard stuff”. It is so much easier to just pass a law that says we can strip rights, property, freedom and liberty away with no trial because some government thug somewhere thinks it is a good idea to put you on some type of secret list.

Any Libertarian worth his or her salt hates these watch lists for multiple reasons, but as the article above states the NRA is correct on this issue. Lack of due process is completely unacceptable and it holds true in this case as well. You can’t start having secret government lists that strip people of rights!

Now having said that I wouldn’t start cheering these stupid lists even if due process was used. Why? Because ultimately it involves putting someone on a list that strips liberties away for something that someone MIGHT do down the road, but we aren’t really sure.

If someone has ALREADY broken laws and is ALREADY a terrorist who has ALREADY done acts of murder or terror then LOCK THEM UP! Don’t put them on some list! But wait, what about terrorists that are running around overseas right now. Unless they are American citizens they don’t get rights under our Constitution. If they are Americans AND terrorists then catch them like you would any criminal and prosecute them!

The whole concept of taking people’s freedom’s away because of things they haven’t but might do someday is a very dangerous precedent to start. Plus who gets to decide these definitions? What constitutes an actual terrorist? I know everyone has their vision of what a terrorist is, but I guarantee that government will have a different definition if you allow this and it will be one you won’t like or worse the definition will start getting bigger and bigger to include more people.

It is no accident that members of the NRA and gun rights enthusiasts get called “terrorist” every time they stand up to Congress when the scum bags are trying to infringe on our liberties again. These un-American ass hats know damn good and well that a whole lot of freedom and liberties are suddenly granted to the police, courts and government and taken away from private citizens if you can brand some person or group as a “terrorist”. That is like a government magic word for immediately suspending constitutional rights from a group of people.

So, if we let this go through even with “due process” in place what happens when the media and liberals everywhere are successful in branding NRA members as terrorist? Poof! There goes our rights and we help sell the bill that will allow it to happen.

You see as dangerous as it is to strip people’s rights and liberties away for things they might do someday it is even more dangerous when the government has amorphous ever changing definitions of what or who a “terrorist” is and what constitutes “acts of terror” that will justify this loss of liberty. You just have to know that whatever party is in control of the levers of power will try and brand their POLITICAL enemies as “terrorists” so they can immediately throw them on some list and strip away a ton of Constitutional liberties.

This whole “war on terror” and who is an actual terrorist is just giving people that don’t deserve our trust (government) way too much power and discretion with our liberties.

Therefore, I stand where I did before. NOT ONE MORE INCH when it comes to gun rights or for that matter giving the thugs more power under the guise of “keeping us safe” and the “war on terror”.

I will keep myself safe. I don’t need the government to do it for me. First, they suck at it. Second, I prefer to do these things myself so I know what I am getting. All I need from government is to stay away from anymore of my liberties. Just back off and leave me alone. There are millions of other Americans that think the same thing.

Molon Labe!

 

The King is Above the Law… Again

Well, here is another story of how the DOJ has ruled it is almost unacceptable for local police to NOT have body cameras now, but they [Federal Police Forces] will NOT use them OR work with any local agency that does wear them! So again, another situation of where the rules for the Federalies is different than the rest of us. Of course they have all kinds of professional sounding excuses for why this shouldn’t apply to them.

Of course nobody at the Federal level ever makes a mistake that should be caught on camera. Nobody at the Federal level could have any racist tendencies, which is why supposedly the local police need to use them. Nobody at the Federal level will ever use excessive force that should be caught on camera. Nobody at the Federal level will ever kick down the door of the wrong house in the middle of the night and kill the wrong person. No, that has never happened. Nobody at the Federal level should ever be held accountable for their actions, but the local police definitely should.

I don’t know about you, but I am getting really sick and tired of this two tiered system in the country of the Federal ruling class constantly exempting themselves from the rules and laws they inflict on the rest of us. As if they are untouchable.

I don’t trust the Federal thugs on ANYTHING and I want them on camera 24/7 raw and unedited so that we can see behind all of their closed doors and secret meetings. It is about time they get some sunlight shined up their asses so the rest of us can truly see what jack booted thugs they really are and quit doing stuff that offers up taxes and support for them to grow larger and more oppressive by the day.

All you people out there that constantly vote for candidates that support bigger and bigger government take note here. The bigger they get the less accountable they become as we can see here. If we truly had a Constitutional Republic and a SMALL Federal government bound by a Constitution this would not be happening, but too many people continually see government, mainly the Federal government as the cure for everything.

I trust my local police far more than I trust those thugs. I want them to have cameras period. We need to apply political force to hold ALL levels of government accountable, not just the local government and police. Enough of this it is good enough for you, but not us crap!

Ross Ulbricht: Victim of Senseless Drug War

Ross Ulbricht was sentenced to life in prison on Friday. Another individual that can be added to the long rabble of victims of the U.S. Government’s senseless war on drugs. He was the creator of the Silk Road web site, which ran on the TOR network and took payment in Bitcoin, thus making the trading of what the government calls “illicit” goods easier and more private.

You can read in plenty of other places how the web site worked and the details of the case. What I wish to focus on specifically is why Mr. Ulbricht was sentenced to life? This was the harshest sentence that could be given and even worse than the prosecution itself was asking for.

The minimum was 20 years. Mr. Ulbricht is 31 years of age so a 20 year stint would have freed him when he was 51 and still left him some semblance of life left to live. However the judge literally threw the book at him and gave him what really amounts to a death sentence. He will now spend the rest of his natural life behind bars and never again know freedom in this life. So why give such a brutal sentence?

The first main reason is the government, like most crime syndicates, doesn’t tolerate competition well. The government needs the “War on Drugs” to finance and finish building the huge police state apparatus it has been quietly building for decades. The so called “Patriot” Act, is simply the latest law that was sold to us to stop terrorism, but is really used to stop competition in the drug war (As of midnight Sunday this has been updated to the USA “Freedom” Act).

In addition, the government needs a large slush fund that isn’t transparent to the public to finance off the books military and spy operations around the globe. If these activities were paid for through traditional channels it would require disclosure in the budget (public information) and be subject to FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests. Would a good police state allow its subjects to see that kind of stuff?

The drug trade is a very profitable enterprise for the U.S. government and to the extent Silk Road was cutting in on that monopoly was completely unacceptable to the thugocracy running our government. Mr. Ulbricht had to be completely crushed to send a message. The jack booted thugs in the government needed to send a clear message to other young upstarts. You mess with our drug business we will end you and use our kangaroo courts to make it look all nice and legal.

The second reason is far more interesting in my opinion. The technology used to build the Silk Road is readily available all over the Internet. The skills used to harness this technology are available to any web developer worth his/her salt. In other words to set up this enterprise didn’t require vast resources, money, manpower or a large enterprise. It required a web developer with some decent programming skills and a laptop.

Think about that for a moment, some guy in his basement with a laptop can create another Silk Road web site, utilize Bitcoin, TOR, and readily available encryption and create a lucrative marketplace that would literally end the government’s monopoly on the drug trade if it catches on and lots of people do it. In addition, it isn’t just about drugs, in fact, I would argue that is actually a small part of the future.

The real power will come when totally free, anonymous, unregulated, and tax free networks and lassie fare capitalism can truly be practiced without interference from the Federalies. People will be able to buy anything they want without the nanny state blocking it, taxing it, or regulating it.

As new people start to do this they will learn from the mistakes of others. They will learn at the speed of light how to hide more effectively from the growing police state, move money around more quietly and easier, facilitate better more frictionless capitalism and they can do it from anyplace in the world. They will get harder to track and harder to stop.

Such a site can be set up in about month with a little elbow grease. In fact, others have already been set up. Many of them have been shut down, but new ones are coming. Think technology boom, but in this case being used to run circles around the behemoth and slow moving Federalies. The innovations that created our modern Internet can and will be applied to ending the Federalies alternative income schemes and totalitarian control over our lives to exercise truly free markets.

The real reason Mr. Ulbricht was given such a harsh sentence is because he dared open Pandora’s Box, he showed how ANYONE can do this. The government is feeling stark terror right now. They see their precious drug business being usurped by a dude with a laptop. They fully understand that if more and more of these sites pop up that the resources needed to track them all down all over the world and arrest everyone involved will quickly outstrip even their resources and manpower. They are terrified.

Like any jack booted tyrant or animal that is terrified it is lashing out viciously in an attempt to stop the inevitable from occurring. They won’t be successful. More will follow and some will be busted and receive similar treatment, but eventually the market will become unstoppable. They know this. So, in an attempt to strike fear into anyone else thinking of doing this they gave Mr. Ulbricht a life sentence. Not because they care about society, but because he dared to cut into their business and usurp their authority.

Many feel that in this case the punishment didn’t fit crime and is truly an injustice. Sadly it has been this way throughout history. The first pioneers into any endeavor often get the arrows in the back. They die trying to push boundaries and advance into areas unexplored. However his sacrifice will only inspire others.

Others will follow and soon the technology, processes, skills, and brave individuals willing to poke a finger in the eye of the jack booted thugs running the U.S. government’s crime syndicate will grow. Soon they will be unstoppable. The government is terrified.

Obama believes ALL money belongs to government

The House recently passed a bill to abolish the estate tax, which while I completely agree with is still only a micro step in the right direction. Let me be more clear, taxes are morally wrong and ALL of them should be abolished!

Predictably the Communist in Chief, Obama, believes all money belongs to the government and he is not giving any extra back to you. In fact, you should probably just shut up and sit in the back of the bus and be happy with the scraps he generously allows you to keep now. After all, every penny, you keep is “costing” the poor old government!

According to his blog he thinks this is a “giveaway to the rich” at the “expense of the middle class” and it would “cost” too much. Just examine that use of words and language that he has chosen.

It frames the debate in that ALL money belongs to the government and like a person that earns a paycheck by trading value for value and then spends money by making choices. Families or individuals that consider some things too expensive will decide not to spend the money on them because of cost. So when you hear Obama say things like this it sounds like language you or your family would use and therefore is normal. Only it isn’t.

Make no mistake in an effort to manipulate the weak minded unthinking drones he calls supporters he has carefully chosen the exact wording and phrases. He has carefully poll tested and chosen these specific words to sound like you should when making an economic decision so that it sounds reasonable and normal to you when he uses language like this. However there are huge differences as you might imagine.

1.  ALL money does NOT belong to the government! They stole it from you and now when people talk about giving it back to you it becomes a “cost” like they somehow earned it and are making one of those economic decisions. They are are not.

2.  It is NOT a “giveaway” to the “rich” it belonged to them in the first place! They paid taxes on it once already when they earned it! The government STOLE it from them at the point of a gun by threatening violence!

3. The government did NOT provide value for value before stealing this money. I certainly would not pay the taxes I owe for the “services” that the government “provides” unless I had a gun pointed at my head as well.

4. It can’t “cost” the government to simply not steal additional money from you. It was yours to start with.

The childlike arguments made by Obama have no rational basis in logical thinking. This would be like saying that if the government comes along and breaks your leg, but then uses a government program to get you a cast they “healed” you and you should be grateful to them for being so generous.

As usual the Putz in Chief, Obama, is off on his communist rant and couldn’t produce clear rational thought if his life depended on it. Sadly he has droves of equally moronic supporters who are equally incapable of logical and rational thought, which is why our country is in such trouble today.

Is Obamacare Dead?

A case sitting before the Supreme Court right now known as King v. Burwell has all the potential to deliver a death blow to Obamacare. The crux of the case is that the law specifically reads that only states that have state run exchanges qualify for Federal subsidies. There are over 30 states they don’t have a state run exchange, which means the Federal tyrants have set up an exchange for them, wasn’t that sweet of them. The states that have no state exchange are technically not entitled to stolen tax payer money subsidies.

It doesn’t help the progressive idiots that used some of the most convoluted shams lies kick backs “rules” to get this passed and as a result didn’t get to actually clean up this monstrosity. Now they are claiming they never intended for it to not cover everyone. Of course this to is a lie. It was specifically written this way to bribe force create incentives the states to set up their own exchanges. Many of them did not and now Obama and his criminal henchman in Congress are in a bit of a pickle as they offer up additional lies excuses lame reasoning explanation for what they meant.

The question of course is will the SCOTUS rule as they should, which is to say looking at the letter of the law where it specifically says state run exchanges are the only ones able to receive stolen tax payer loot and rule as they should by the letter of the law.

Since that traitor, John Roberts had to perform such complex legal gymnastics the first time to find this piece of crap “Constitutional” by essentially re-writing it on the fly I am not hopeful that he will rule any differently this time. He will probably accept the lies from the progressives that they intended this to be the case from the beginning, apply a huge dose of legal gymnastics again and again vote in their favor. After you add up the other 4 guaranteed Obama votes from the 4 liberal Justices you will get another 4/5 decision. In fact, I am so sure this is what will happen I think it is as close to a sure bet as you can get.

We should know in a few short months. The anticipation is killing me…NOT!

Obama to Rule Internet by Fiat!

Here we go again, Obama taking the HUGE hammer of government and crushing the last bastion of freedom left in the U.S., the Internet. The Internet has remained free for the most part until now. Because of this freedom, just like everywhere else it is tried, entrepreneurship and innovation has created an unprecedented level of wealth, services, and efficiencies. As usual anything that is working well is something Obama wishes to get his little paws into and screw up and so here we go again with “Net Neutrality”.

Like most big government based “solutions” looking for a problem to solve it sounds all nice and fair. We are told those evil big corporations should “not be picking winners and losers” in terms of determining who gets a bigger pipeline to content.

Sadly this didn’t seem to apply when Obama was padding his cronies in the green energy sector and picking winners and losers there. Where a “winner” was a “business” that would get a big donation from you the tax payer via Obama’s big government giveaway program and then turn around and give a big donation of some of that same money to Obama’s campaign. After all this the company usually went out of business because it was a stupid idea and poorly managed to start. Anyone remember Solyndra? Talk about money laundering!

However in reality this regulation has so much more than “fairness” built into it. Like Obamacare, you remember, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. How about that promise of more affordable healthcare? How is that working for you?

This law will regulate far more than just who gets broadband access. If you let the grubby little tyrants in they will eventually be levying taxes, regulating commerce that goes over the web, limiting free speech, controlling cryptography on “its” Internet. It will regulate prices and so much more.

This has got to stop. This little dictator has to go! As a small business I have been involved in the Internet for over 20 years and yes, you little thug, I did build it! I want you to stay away from the Internet. You have already regulated and strangled so much of our freedom in just about every other area of life you need to leave this alone.

Here is a semi-related article from the architect of Obamacare about how they had to mislead and fool the American people and depend on “voter stupidity” into accepting Obamacare and now they plan to do the same thing with this piece of crap law.

It truly will be Obamacare for the Internet! Here are just some of the great things currently available that I can see being outlawed once the little thin skinned dictator gets his hands on regulating the Internet…

  • Ending or highly regulating Bitcoin because transactions occur over the Internet.

  • Levying taxes on all eCommerce

  • Eliminating the use of cryptography for email and other file transfers or at the very least building in government only back doors, you know, just for totally legitimate law enforcement, not to spy or anything bad like that.

  • Controlling wages and prices for services that occur over the Internet.

  • Controlling or deciding what is “acceptable” free speech over the Internet and being able to ban “hate speech” which of course they get to decide what the definition of “hate” is, i.e. read political opinions they don’t agree with.

Plus don’t forget the giant expansion of government workers, massive budgets that grow every single year and brand new previously non-existent departments to manage all of this regulation! Remember like any other government monstrosity once that crap is created it NEVER goes away!

The American people need to stand up and fight this little tyrant and tell the thin skinned dictator to leave the Internet alone! Free was how it was started. Free is how it should remain.

Only freedom and minimal regulation will allow the next 20 plus years to create the same level of wealth, innovation and efficiency as the last 20 years. Get lost you little tyrant! Find some rock to crawl under until 2016 when we can finally be rid of your stupid ideas and piss poor “leadership”!

SCOTUS to Review Obamacare…Again.

The Supreme Court has agreed to review a huge aspect of Obamacare for a second time. This time they are ruling on if the subsidies will be able to be paid to states that chose not to create a state exchange and ended up with an exchange run by the Federales. Currently that is 36 states, well over half of them. If the SCOTUS, specifically John Roberts can rule on what the law ACTUALLY says instead of what he WANTS it to say because he wants to rule it Constitutional and not make the court look bad to liberals this might actually drive a stake through the heart of this awful piece of legislation. Here is a link to the story.

I won’t be holding my breath because Justice Roberts has already proven he can be a traitor and do complex legal gymnastics to essentially re-write the law so he could somehow rule it Constitutional. Many believe that he did this because as Chief Justice he was more concerned with the image of the court than risk being called a partisan court by ruling the correct way and calling this mess Unconstitutional. Hey, I didn’t say his reasons were intelligent, just what they probably were.

Others who believe in conspiracies believe Obama’s criminal henchman somehow threatened Justice Roberts the first time so he would rule in their favor instead of declaring this piece of crap Unconstitutional as he should have. If that is true then I would doubt this ruling to be any different than the first. If the other reason, i.e. his image enhancement campaign is still in effect then he may again decide to toss the actual Constitution back in the trash can in favor of some belief he is saving the image of the court, hence the ruling will again favor Obama.

Either way I have very little faith the SCOTUS will actually do the right thing this time and rule against this monstrosity. If they do I will literally be shocked, but I would certainly not bet that way.

D.C. Forced to Recognize Gun Rights

According to this story from the Washington Post, Washington D.C. City Council unanimously passed a law allowing individuals to carry concealed handguns for the first time in 40 years. Here is an excerpt from the story…

Members of the D.C. Council begrudgingly, but unanimously, voted for a bill that would allow individuals to carry the firearms if they meet a number of requirements.

The bold and italicized are mine. This single word is one of the key things wrong with government today. The right to bear arms is an individual right that we are born with. Government never was and never will be the arbiter of these rights. Their ONLY responsibility in this regard is to PROTECT that right from infringement, period. Look at the absolute audacity that they claim that they are ALLOWING someone to exercise a fundamental freedom!

ALLOWING, I really want that word to sink in. I want you to think long and hard about government ALLOWING you access to a fundamental, absolute, and natural right, but again, only under their terms and conditions!

The article goes on to state that they claim to be following the ruling by the court, but in reality are still stopping people from exercising this right. The law that ALLOWS people to exercise this right still let’s the police decide if you have a “good enough reason” to exercise this right. Everything about this is the exact opposite of what government should be doing. They don’t get to ALLOW you to exercise this right any more than they can decide if you are ALLOWED the right to free speech, free assembly, or freedom of the press!

Can you imagine if politicians or the police could shut off someone’s right of free speech because they don’t feel that the person requesting the permit has a good enough reason to exercise this right based on their own made up arbitrary standard?

The article goes to say that people who actually ARE ALLOWED to exercise this right by dictate of the police still must go through 16 hours of training. Again, can you imagine if you wanted to exercise your free speech or freedom to choose your own religion and the government not only got to decide if you had a “good enough reason” but also forced you to go through 16 hours of training first! Since when does the government get to dictate specific training people have to go through to exercise a fundamental right?

The article goes on to quote Marion Barry, City Council member and true lover of freedom and gun rights…

“I don’t believe in guns. I don’t believe in carrying guns,” said council member Marion Barry, Ward 8 Democrat and a former four-term mayor. “I think the public ought to understand that all of us here are doing something we really don’t want to do.”

Well, Mr. Barry, I don’t really give a flying f**k what you believe or that you are being forced to do something you don’t want to do!

First, what you believe or don’t believe has absolutely no bearing what so ever on my rights! Second, the government everyday, hands down laws, regulations and mandates that I don’t believe in and many other freedom loving Americans don’t believe in either, but we don’t get to decide if we are going to follow them! Maybe we should.

We don’t get to cast a vote among ourselves and decide if we are going to follow YOUR laws, but somehow you have the audacity to believe you have that right over other free people? You are truly a piece of work!

I know many in the shooting community view this as a victory and to some degree it is, but it is a far cry from where we should be. Perhaps Americans should start deciding what they believe in and picking and choosing which laws, regulations and mandates they will follow. After all what you believe is meaningless to me so I figure turn about is fair play.

Politics of Hobby Lobby Supreme Court Ruling

So the SCOTUS yesterday came out on another famous 5/4 decision to back Hobby Lobby’s case against Obamacare. In short the ruling exempts closely held corporations from having to provide contraception in their health plans as mandated by Obamacare on religious grounds. It is fascinating to see all the groups rushing out in front of cameras today to try and cash in on this one way or the other.

The reality is this is such a narrow ruling that it has almost no effect on the stinking, freedom robbing mess that is Obamacare. However I find it interesting when that traitor John Roberts essentially re-wrote the law and then ruled it Constitutional every statis out there howled from the heavens that it was “settled law” and the courts have spoken. Leave it alone. It was done. etc. etc., but this time they don’t like the ruling so they are asking Congress to “fix” it, which of course will not happen.

It is also interesting how the Democrats are practically killing themselves to get in front a camera and pull out the so called “war on women” playbook again. Really. First of all, it isn’t the Republicans that did this. It was people with religious objections that were being forced to violate their religious beliefs at the point of a gun by Obama. While it can be argued that Republicans were not sorry to see this happen, let’s be clear, it was nothing that the Republican led House did legislatively. To blame them for this is nothing more than crass politics.

Last point, the issue of force. Statis are out there today talking about how the employees of Hobby Lobby and any other closely held corporation that exercises this right are somehow robbing their employees. First off, this medication we are talking about is dirt cheap, $9 per month. So give up one of your latte and buy your medication and shut up. Second, nobody is forcing you to work for this company. If you hate what they are doing by all means find a different job.

If a Libertarian and *some* conservatives don’t like something they simply leave, find another job, change the channel, etc. If they don’t like the gun laws in a certain state, they leave. If they don’t like the garbage MSNBC calls “news” they simply change the channel. Statis can’t do that. If they don’t like what an employer is doing they want the heavy hand of government to force them to change. If they don’t like Fox News they want government to regulate them away. If they don’t like talk radio they want government to ban them. If they don’t like guns instead of moving to a state like New Jersey, New York, Connecticut or California which are all practically gun free states and enjoy their little utopia they go to the Federal government and ask them to ban guns nationally. In other words they are not happy unless they can use the brutal power of government and the government guns to force their world views on EVERYONE. It is sickening.

Many Libertarians who believe in gun rights and freedom have started taking the tact of not one more inch. No, we are not going to allow you to oppress us with your world views. We will at a certain point choose to fight back. We don’t want to do this, but if you keep taking our freedoms and liberties at a certain point this option becomes inevitable. Just look at history and you will see case after case where this was true. So stop already.

Chris Christie Rails Against Freedom

Recently Chris Christie of NJ demonstrated his disdain for freedom (again) by railing against the recreational cannabis laws of Colorado. As usual Christie like many others comes down on the side of less freedom for the people and more laws, regulations, and less freedom for the people. This is only one of many issues where this is his position. We are still waiting to see how he decides on magazine bans in NJ. I can tell you how the smart money plans on betting for that one 🙂

He argues in this piece about this legalization becoming a “slippery slope”. What he really means is he, like other statists are afraid that the people will get a taste of a little too much freedom and start demanding more of it on all types of things and less government. Nothing scares big government statists and tyrants worse than having the people figure out there actually is a better way to live.

What I find amazing about this moron is that he is scared that a little more freedom will cause a “slippery slope” towards freedom, but when politicians like him pass “common sense” and “reasonable” “gun safety” laws and gun owners say we are beginning a slippery slope toward gun bans and tyranny we are called paranoid, right wing and gun nuts with a lose grip on reality.

Again just another case of big nanny state government knowing what’s best and the people just not knowing “what is good for them” as we go towards this supposedly dangerous “slippery slope” of freedom. I prefer Thomas Jefferson’s stance on it instead…

“I prefer the tumult of liberty to the quiet of servitude.”

The really sad thing is this clown or that other stalwart of freedom Jeb Bush [full sarcasm intended] will end up being the nominee for the Republican Party for President in 2016. And they wonder why 75% of the American population doesn’t even bother to vote any longer.

We see almost zero difference between the two major parties. Both hate freedom. Both are scared to death of people getting even a taste of freedom. Both want bigger and more intrusive government on just about everything. No wonder the Founding Fathers had such disdain for “parties” they saw this coming over 200 years ago!
