Plano Trail Runners

The Plano Trail Runners be some tough sumbitches.

"Trail runners tend to love nature, not only for its beauty but for its exciting and terrifying power."

Liberty works well for me, so much so that I want more of it and I’m working towards that goal.
Perhaps socialism works well for the people in this video.
Libertarians and socialists can intermingle to learn about the others way of life. If I learn something new and decide that I want myself some socialism, I’ll join up with them and be part of the group. Likewise, any socialist is always welcome to experience liberty and I’ll help as much as I can. My difficulty is that I’ve never met a socialist who respects individuality.


What Am I ??

John Jay Myers Congressional candidacy and activity in the LP is a tremendous gain for libertarians everywhere.
Neither the 'paper candidate' (nor the newer term 'place holder') is the pinnacle of the LP's aspirations for it's candidates. While liberty is ancient and mankind's natural state, the Libertarian Party is only a youthful teen relative to the more geriatric ideas of the Democrats and the Republicans.
It is my goal as a liberty minded voter to replace most if not all the current "PAPER OFFICE HOLDERS" with servants of substance who can be relied upon to respect their constituents individual dignities and the Constitution.


"Unless they can pass the same test that immigrants must pass to become citizens, people shouldn't be allowed to vote. The idea that there is some public benefit in ignoramuses and morons pulling levers next to names on a ballot is one of the evil myths of post-modern America. The purpose of voting, in our country, is to select men and women with the competence and integrity to operate the mechanics of government fixed by our Constitution. For this process to have any public benefit requires that the choices be made on an intelligent, knowledgeable and reasoned basis." -- Charley Reese Source: The Orlando Sentinel, 11/03/98  http://quotes.liberty-tree.ca/quote_blog/Charley.Reese.Quote.72F7

"A constitution is not the act of a government,
but of a people constituting a government; and government without a constitution is power without a right. All power exercised over a nation, must have some beginning. It must be either delegated, or assumed. There are not other sources. All delegated power is trust, and all assumed power is usurpation. Time does not alter the nature and quality of either." -- Thomas Paine (1737-1809) http://quotes.liberty-tree.ca/quote_blog/Thomas.Paine.Quote.71D2

"Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little
decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance." -- C. S. Lewis 

"A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which debt he proposes to pay off with your money." -- G. Gordon Liddy (1930- ) Lawyer, radio show host, former FBI bureau supervisor, former prosecutor, campaign manager for Richard Nixon

"Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility,
and most people are frightened of responsibility." -- Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) Jewish Austrian neurologist, founder of the psychoanalytic school of psychiatry

"You can't get rid of poverty by giving people money."
-- P. J. O'Rourke (1947- ) US humorist, journalist, & political commentator

"It is said that power corrupts, but actually it's more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power." -- David Brin (1950- ) Author

"Compelling a man by law to pay his money to elect candidates or advocate law or doctrines he is against differs only in degree, if at all, from compelling him by law to speak for a candidate, a party, or a cause he is against. The very reason for the First Amendment is to make the people of this country free to think, speak, write and
worship as they wish, not as the Government commands." -- Justice Hugo L. Black (1886-1971) US Supreme Court Justice Source: IAM v. Street, 367 U.S., 1961.

 "I cannot accept, your canon that we are to judge pope and king unlike other men, with a favorable presumption that they do no wrong. If there is any presumption, it is the other way against holders of power ... Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.  -- Lord Acton [John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton] (1834-1902), First Baron Acton of Aldenham Source: to the bishop of London, 1887
