Rand quote and a slight rant

"When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion — when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing — when you see money flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors — when you see that men get richer by graft and pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you — when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice — you may know that your society is doomed." -- Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

Well, according to Ayn, we are doomed; but still we fight, we prepare, we keep on day by day; what else can we do? Most of us do not have the option of leaving the country, and really I don't think there is going to be much of anywhere you can go where you will not be affected by the coming financial crisis. Yes, I said coming. I don't think we've even begun to see the worst of it yet.

What is the most important thing you can do? Pray. Next, obey. And finally secure access to clean potable water, store food and store seed to grow more food. Repeat. You can't have too much stored food or seed, because if you don't need it to eat yourself, you can use it for charity or barter.

Got a worm on one of my computers today. Saw it start to go weird and turned to off and drove it over to ds to see if he can fix it. He said it is a new worm, he just saw the same on another computer today. I was going to the bank, so I changed my passwords just in case. I am so thankful that I have more than one computer...my access to the world of other sane patriots and preppers. Ds works in the computer world and he says it is really getting bad with the hackers and malware.

Actually, I have been thinking about the word patriots. So many today are “patriotic” but they equate that with being pro-military and pro-government and I am certainly NOT pro-military or pro-American government as it is today. Just to start thinking about what our troops are being used for and it makes me ill. We have perpetual war for the goons --- not for our safety. How long before the sheeple, no - the sleeple, WAKE UP?

If you go from day to day, just going through the same routine with very little to look forward to except maybe the game on Sunday or the fish fry on Friday night.. just working to pay your taxes and then a little of something for yourself and your loved ones, what type of life is that? You're sleep-walking through life. You're a sleeple. Go along to get along. Don't cause waves, be a good little worker bee. Don't have an independent thought. In fact, don't think at all! Swallow all the .gov't propaganda; Thank you, sir, may I have another? Bow to the almighty bureaucracy; May I please have a license for (you fill in the blank) and soon you will be paying them for breathing the air!

You are a slave. Or a donkey following the carrot hung out in front of you on a stick....almost there, can't wait to retire and not have to work all week, almost there, got to get junior that college education, almost there, got to give little princess her dream wedding, almost there....working for everyone but yourself!

WAKE UP! Your freedoms have been stolen from you in broad daylight by the very people you thought were supposed to protect them...yourgovernment!

WAKE UP! While there is still a glimmer of hope to do something about the liars, cheaters and murderers up on Crapital Hill.

WAKE UP! Your fellow sovereign citizens need you in the fight.
If you don't wake up soon, when you finally do wake up, it will be to hunger, destruction, and heart-wrenching regret that you didn't wake up when there was still a glimmer of hope to make a change.

God have mercy,

i am pretty sure that i can add nothing to your eloquent words...we need God's mercy but i believe that we already have it - it was through his mercy that we woke up. now we try to wake up as many more as possible. you are doing a fine good job here HUP. keep trying to fight the good fight. we'll get through this - we'll get through it through His mercy.

Thanks for the comment Kymber and yes I too believe it is only His mercy that upholds us. Somedays I do get weary in the battle and other days I get so angry I could just spit...and I guess I do! Spit and sputter with frustration! But the most important thing is that we don't just opt out and go back to being sleeple.

America proves Ayn Rand’s ideals. America was the only country that started a tradition of individual freedom and legal elbowroom for creative pebble droppers to lift the freedom and prosperity of community. We saw this expressed in how well local government worked, how vigilantes righted wrongs of the greedy takers, and the Tea Parties today challenge tyranny in Washington, D.C. Those who cower in the shadow of community interests criticize Rand for things that are not true, such as selfishness being held up as self-centeredness, which leads to pride, envy and anger. This she opposed, and Howard Roark sets the example of the outer-centered innovative individual, as expressed in his jury summation in Fountainhead. Her ideals are cited in SAVE PEBBLE DROPPERS & PROSPERITY on claysamerica.com.

Amen! That was beautiful, HUP! Gave me goosebumps. I love the word 'sleeple'. So many are asleep, and it is so sad to see. It's like there is no interest in anything of value anymore. As long as folks have their latte and their American Idol, they're happy. So sad. Keep preaching it!

Thanks for stopping over and leaving a comment. I popped over to your site and did a bit of reading, liked what I read and will be back for more. So many books, so little time! Feel free to come and joing the discussion here anytime.
Thanks! wow, goosebumps, you do know how to encourage me to keep posting!
