Become a RINO

The political process sucks. We have a one party system masquerading as two parties. A lot of conservative/libertarian/tea party people are fed up with McCain, Graham, Boehner, and the lot of them.

Here's the deal: if you want to vote, if you still think voting matters, you have two choices. The first choice is registering as an independent, and being locked out of the only part of the process where you can actually affect change - the primaries. You only get to vote in the general election. That's how we end up with McCain, Dole, Bush, and Romney.

Or, you can register as a republican. Don't give one red fucking cent to the party, but instead push and vote for libertarians in the primary. That's how we get Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee.

I would love for the libertarian party to replace the republicans. But until that happens, why not just take your party back?

Why not a DINO?

Because the democrats aren't even close to liberty anymore. They have successfully purged almost every single blue dog from the party. They are united in their march towards totalitarianism.

I'm a registered republican, but a practicing voluntaryist. Register, but make them earn your vote. And if they don't earn it, don't you dare give it to them. You owe them nothing. They owe you everything.

But you're an anarchist. Why even bother voting?

I vote as a means of self defense. I don't believe in their authority, but I do believe in their guns and cages. My vote is a drop in the bucket, but dammit, at least I'm doing something.

All our heroes are criminals

I'm watching A NORML Life, a documentary about medical marijuana, and one of the guys being interviewed says something like, "you locked up Martin Luther King, you locked up Gandhi, you locked up Rosa Parks..."

My first thought was, "yeah, but they also locked up Dahmer, Bundy, and Gacy, so maybe that's not a comparison you want to make." But I think the point he's trying to make (it's hard to think of the right words when you're "higher than giraffe pussy," as Joe Rogan would say) is that all of our heroes are criminals.

Jesus Christ was executed by the government. The founding fathers were all traitors to the crown. Harriet Tubman broke the law, as did Frederick Douglass. They invented new laws to try and make Lysander Spooner a criminal, and he openly defied laws routinely. Dietrich Bonhoeffer died in a concentration camp. Oskar Schindler was a criminal. Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks and countless others in the civil rights movement were law breakers. Gandhi, too.

I believe that all of our heroes are criminals because we instinctively know that government is a lie, and it always has been. We admire those who disobeyed.

And that gives me just a little bit of optimism.

Great movies on Netflix right now

I'm too lazy to link anything, but Netflix is streaming:

Occupy Unmasked
Hating Breitbart
Runaway Slave
Dirty Wars

They're all documentaries, and they're all worth your time. I really do miss Andrew Breitbart.

A preview of what's to come in this country

Remember when the administration first started seriously talking about gun control, and there were a bunch of "patriot sheriffs" who would absolutely refuse to comply with such nonsense?

You know that was bull shit, right?

A 30 man team assaults a family over a spent shell casing, going on nothing but the word of a provably vindictive ex-wife, and not one fucking man on that team has the balls to do what's right. They yank a naked 16 year old out of the shower, put guns to the heads of children, cause 10k in damages all to disarm a man who has done nothing criminal.

As the author of that piece points out, David Fucking Gregory. No charges for him BLATANTLY (yes, he called first and asked if it would be illegal, and was told it was very definitely illegal) breaking the law on national fucking television. Well, his wife is good friends with this piece of shit persecutor (he's not a prosecutor), so of course, charging one of the elites with a crime wouldn't do anything for "public safety."

But ransacking this family's house and terrorizing children, that makes us all safe.

Not one real man on that team. Just a bunch of cowards. The only shocking thing here is that they didn't follow procedure and shoot someone.

The time is coming. It's not here yet, but goddam is it getting close.

Added: legal insurrection has more apt thoughts on this.

I can't fucking take it anymore

Once again, Obama had no idea until he saw the news that his signature health care bill was a giant clusterfuck of a miserable failure.

So, for those of you keeping score, our president has had no idea of the workings of his government on fast and furious, the nsa, the irs scandal, and the justice department targeting journalists until it was reported in the news.

Let us not forget that he was playing cards during the bin Laden raid, and he was sleeping when our ambassador and 3 others were murdered in Libya.

And who, pray tell, has been fired for these fuck ups? In fast and furious and the nsa scandals, only the whistle blowers have been fired. The culprit behind the irs scandal retired with full pension (paid for by us), and Eric Holder is still running the department of injustice.

You fucking lefties actually buy this shit? There are only two possibilities: glaring incompetence or active complicity in illegal activity. In either case, Obama is unfit to lead.

And remember that Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Trey Gowdy, and Justin Amash are the only ones with the stones to try to stop him.

Even Jon Stewart can see it.

Nonessential? Get paid twice!

That's right, not only will the nonessential government workers get paid for not working, they'll also get paid  unemployment benefits (if they applied for them).

Nonessential workers getting paid twice with your tax dollars for not working. This is why we can't have nice things.

And they still have the balls to call themselves "servants."

Did Miriam Carey deserve to die?

You know how I feel about police brutality, but I truly am torn on this. On the one hand, she was trying to ram the barriers at the white house and the capitol. We live in crazy times, and there are legitimate threats to our nation's "leaders." On the other hand, as Clark points out, when you live in a fortress, you develop a fortress mentality.

She was unarmed. I find out hard to believe that when they had the vehicle surrounded, they didn't notice the toddler in the back seat. They still riddled the car with bullets. Whether or not Miriam Carey deserved to die, I do believe that the cops acted recklessly with regards to the child.

Of course, the palace guards would just say that the toddler should have had a more responsible mother.

So did she deserve to die? Like I said, I'm torn. But I find myself coming down on the "no" side.
