Barry Goldwater

Hat tip to for linking up this, Goldwater's 1964 acceptance speech at the Republican convention. Read this and compare it to our two candidates who'll face of in November, and see the difference for yourself...

The Sacking of Troy...

Here's a link to a good Washington Times article that shows how the FDA (!) is trying to stop/slow down the Ambulance Chasing Trial Lawyers (did I say John Edwards, and his ilk).
Read it. It's worth the time. 
Especially the last paragraph. It (the Bill) sailed through the House unopposed and unchallenged. If this is the kind of "Leadership" House Republicans show, then there is no leadership. Oh, wait! It's an election year!
I forgot.

The Left's Crimes of Silence

Run right on over to to read the above named editorial by Ralph Peters.
 Talk about hitting the proverbial nail right on it's head!!!

Hopeful Signs...

Hopeful signs of a Human Future.

  This news story portrays the decline of the 'Protestant majority' in America. It says that the rise of the 'non-religious' has grown at least 5% since the 1990's. Among America's youth, the non-religious has/have  grown even more rapidly.

 Here are some telling stats:

"Since colonial times, the United States has been a Protestant nation.  But perhaps as early as this year, the country will, for the first time, no longer have a Protestant majority," Smith said in a report Tuesday. 

 A steep rise in the number of people who said they have no religion: 14% in 2002, up from 9% in 1992. It's even higher for younger people: Among those born in 1980 or later, 27% said they had no religion. "Each succeeding group is less religious than the preceding," Smith says.

Let's hope, for America's future, and the future of individual freedom, that a large percentage of these 'non-religous' are steeped in the life-affirming philosophy of Objectivism. The philosophy of Ayn Rand.  Let's say 'goodbye and good riddance to religious superstition altogether.   

I can't seem to link to this story. Working on it.

Taking a bit of time from Blogging this past week. Listening to a pathbreaking audio lecture course called, "Reclaiming Egoism and Morality" by Dina Garmong. Available from the Ayn Rand Bookstore []
 Highly recommended.
Also, today's my birthday!

The Morality of Life

"In the name of the best within you, do not sacrifice this world to those who are its worst. In the name of the values that keep you alive, do not let your vision of man be distorted by the ugly, the cowardly, the mindless in those who have never achieved his title. Do not lose your knowledge that man's proper estate is an upright posture, an intransigent mind and a step that travels unlimited roads. Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it's yours. But to win it requires your total dedication and a total break with the world of your past, with the doctrine that man is a sacrificial animal who exists for the pleasure of others. Fight for the value of your person. Fight for the virtue of your pride. Fight for the essence of that which is man: for his sovereign rational mind. Fight with the radiant certainty and the absolute rectitude of knowing that yours is the Morality of Life." Ayn Rand

This appalling statement was just uttered to me a little while ago. "Too many people are looking for happiness. The problem is, they are trying to find it in themselves."
The gentleman (?) would have said the following, right after spewing the above quote, that human's can only find happiness in "serving God". Or "true happiness is loving our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ."
Needless to say, I cut the conversation short.
If you pause to think about the above quotes, they are a direct attack on Aristotle and on any human who struggles to be productive, to achieve hard fought values, whatever their scale and worth.
The monumental task we face, right now, and for the rest of our lives, is to stand for egoism's proper place at the center of a human moral code. The purpose of morality is to discover how each human can achieve their values, while living on earth. Not on how to serve others and sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice.
I'm reminded of a scene in Ayn Rand's sadly overlooked novel, 'We the Living', where one of the main characters discovers the key to real happiness. " I know that when I ask people if they believe in God, and they say "yes", they don't believe in Life".
Altruist's have had more than two millenia to distort Egoism, and they have done a thourough job of it. As a consequence, an egoist morality is all but unknown today, and morality itself has been destroyed as a tool for humans to use to further their own lives.
Now, more than ever, those who understand the true value of self-interest, must speak out whenever we hear such drivel. By doing so, you will not only assist in stopping the decent into religious tyranny here in America, you will also bolster your own self confidence and automatically add luster to your body armor.
Let's get busy. We have no time to loose.

Kerry + Edwards

If you didn't see this one coming, you've been hiding in a cave for too long. John Edwards was, according to some reports, Kerry's second choice. John McCain being the first. But really, Edwards had to be the one, because of the inexhorable logic of it all.

Kerry has been posing (?) as a lifeless stoic. Looking like the graying, quiet, intellectual. In other words, trying to look "Presidential". Edwards is the youthful, energetic go-getter, picked presumably to energize the Democratic electorate.

I consider Edwards a modern-day Elmer Gantry. That ever-present smile hides a deep seated hatred of all things American. Things that you and I are working on trying to restore on the American scene: reason, individualism, capitalism.[Remember that almost all his stump speeches during the primaries boiled down to economic class warfare.]

Kerry's 'waffling' on the issues ( "I opposed that bill right up to the minute I voted for it."),is designed for him to look like an Intellectual, pondering all sides of an issue, but is really a smokescreen, covering his own fundamental hatred of his country.[Hat tip to Robert Tracinski of The Intellectual Activist for pointing this out, in the March 2004 issue.]

Speaking for myself, both these men are united in their zeal to sell-out America for U.N. control of everything. Turning American working men and women into saps to be drained for the world-wide welfare state.

Hey, we're already being drained for that purpose!

So there you have it. If Bush is re-elected, we'll have a more serious push for the uniting of church & state via 'Faith-Based Initiatives. If it's Kerry, we'll have every half-wit naked savage able to tell us what to do via the UN.

Very unpleasing prospects ahead.

Happy Birthday America!!!

Cheers to the most moral nation in history! Here's to you, good friend, on your 228th birthday. May you live on forever!

[I say "most moral nation" not because of religion, but In Spite of religion's growing interference, in our great secular republic]

Constitution Society.Org

Just found this interersting website. Cursory glance through it makes me want to add it to this site's Blog Roll of Fame. They state that the reason their site's background is Black is to protest the abuses leveled against the Constitution that are still occuring.
