"Responsibility, not to a superior, but to one's conscience, the
awareness of a duty not exacted by compulsion, the necessity to decide
which of the things one values are to be sacrificed to others, and bear
the consequences of one's own decision, are the very essence of any
morals which deserve the name. "

A LETTER TO THE GOVERNMENT
To: President Obama and all 535
members of the Legislature, and 100 Senators:
- The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775. You have had 234
to get it right and it is broke.
- Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years
get it right and it is broke.
- Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to
it right and it is broke.
- The War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to
it right; $1 trillion of our money is spent each year, and we still
plenty of poverty.
- Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44
to get it right and they are broke.
- Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to
it right and it is broke.
- The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our
on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of
billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32
to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
You have failed in every "government service" you have shoved
our throats while overspending our tax dollars.
AND YOU WANT US TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A
HEALTH CARE SYSTEM?

Ron Paul's "10 Principles of a Free Society"
1 - Rights belong
to individuals, not groups; they derive from our nature and can neither
be granted nor taken away by government.
2 - All peaceful, voluntary economic and social associations are
permitted; consent is the basis of the social and economic order.
3 - Justly acquired property is privately owned by individuals and
voluntary groups, and this ownership cannot be arbitrarily voided by
4 - Government may not redistribute private wealth or grant special
privileges to any individual or group.
5 - Individuals are responsible for their own actions; government
cannot and should not protect us from ourselves.
6 - Government may not claim the monopoly over a people's money and
governments must never engage in official counterfeiting, even in the
name of macroeconomic stability.
7 - Aggressive wars, even when called preventative, and even when they
pertain only to trade relations, are forbidden.
8 - Jury nullification, that is, the right of jurors to judge the law
as well as the facts, is a right of the people and the courtroom norm.
9 - All forms of involuntary servitude are prohibited, not only slavery
but also conscription, forced association, and forced welfare
10 - Government must obey the law that it expects other people to obey
and thereby must never use force to mold behavior, manipulate social
outcomes, manage the economy, or tell other countries how to behave.
