Senator Kerry Exposes Core Tenet Of Authoritarian Liberalism


HT: The Whited Sepulchre


"We must contemplate some extremely unpleasant possibilities, just because we want to avoid them and achieve something better. Nobody, however, likes to think about anything unpleasant, even to avoid it. And so the crucial problem of thermonuclear war is frequently dispatched with the label 'War is unthinkable' -- which, translated freely, means we don't want to think about it." -- Albert Wohlstetter (1913-1997) Professor, nuclear strategist, recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, 1985

"The human race's prospects of survival were considerably better when we were defenceless against tigers than they are today when we have become defenceless
against ourselves." -- Arnold J. Toynbee (1889-1975) British historian

"It is a known fact that the policies of the government today, whether Republican or Democrat are closer to the 1932 platform of the Communist Party than they are to either of their own party platforms in that critical year." -- Walter Trohan

"Everything is in place - after 500 years - to build a true 'new world' in the Western Hemisphere... And what happens if we don't pass NAFTA? I truly don't think that 'criminal' would be too strong a word for rejecting NAFTA." -- David Rockefeller

"NAFTA represents the single most creative step towards a New World Order."

"Somehow we find it hard to sell our values, namely that the rich should plunder the poor." -- John Foster Dulles former Secretary of State

"We demand entire freedom of action and then expect the government in some miraculous way to save us from the consequences of our own acts.... Self-government means self-reliance." -- Calvin Coolidge (1873-1933), 30th US President

"There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him." -- Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988) American writer

Friedrich Hayek, The Fatal Conceit: "The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design."

Bill Clinton, 9/21: "Do you know how many political and economic decisions are made in this world by people who don't know what in the living daylights they are talking about?"


The Dallas Morning News sends me a question every week or so.  It's called "Sounding Off".
My latest response below.

Subject: Sounding Off (Central)

I have a two-part question for you. Part One will run this weekend, and Part Two will run next weekend. Answer both parts in one email.
Part One:
Should Texas have term limits for the governor's office? What other offices, if any, should be subject to term limits?

 Yes - One term, five years, elections held during years that are multiples of five.  Any individual may hold the office once for no more than five years.
All federal and state offices should have limits of two terms which can not be served consecutively.
Part Two:
Whom do you support in the governor's race (and why)?

Kathie Glass - Libertarian.
Liberty For All.
Libertarianism For Texans.

Michael Landauer

The Dallas Morning News 

too late correction:  My response should read "An individual" instead of "Any individual".
