“People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I’ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one’s reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one’s master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person’s view requires to be faked. And if one gains the immediate purpose of the lie – the price one pays is the destruction of that which was intended to serve. The man who lies to the world, is the world’s slave from then on.” Ayn Rand (1905 – 1982)
Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to become the means by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of other men. Blood, whips and guns–or dollars. Take your choice–there is no other. Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
Today’s “conservatives” are futile, impotent and, culturally, dead. They have nothing to offer and can achieve nothing. They can only help to destroy intellectual standards, to disintegrate thought, to discredit capitalism, and to accelerate this country’s uncontested collapse into despair and dictatorship. Ayn Rand “Conservatism: An Obituary,”
Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal, 199
The only thing flip flopping Mitt will never flip flop on is defending Romneycare and state socialized medicine. Why do you conservatives keep defending this big government progressive and why do you use the 10th amendment to pardon state socialism?
You people better wake up and stop living in a fantasy world. Mitt Romney is a big government progressive just like Obama. Mitt in his own words and by his own actions prove this! Yet, time and time again, I have conservatives telling me “Anybody but Obama!” but when I point out that “anybody” as Gary Johnson, they all of a sudden back track the “anybody” statement and start defending Mitt Romney!
As I have said many times before, Romney represents a greater danger than Obama. Romney represents conservatives supporting socialism in the name of defeating socialism! Yes, they defend socialism in order to defeat socialism! This is far more dangerous than the second coming of the chosen one!
Socialism is socialism no matter if its on a local, state, or federal level. There is no way to spin this fact.
The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody had decided not to see. Ayn Rand
