A Philosophy of Liberty

The Philosophy of Liberty is based on the principle of Self-Ownership
You own your life.
To deny this is to imply that another person has a higher claim on your life the you do.
No other person or group of persons owns your Life
Nor do you own the lives of others
You exist in Time: Past, Present, Future.
To lose your life is to lose your Future
To lose your liberty is to lose your Present
To lose the product of your life and liberty is to lose that portion of your Past that produced it
A Product of your Life and your liberty is your Property
Property is the fruit of your labor, the product of your time, energy and talents.
Property is that part of nature which you turn to valuable use.
Property that you gain is the property of others that is given to you by voluntary exchange and mutual consent.
Two People who exchange Property voluntarily are both better off or they wouldn’t do it.
Only they may rightfully make that decision for themselves
At times, some people use Force or Fraud to take from others without voluntary consent.
The initiation of force or Fraud:
To take life is murder
To take liberty is slavery
To take Property is theft.

It is the same whether these actions are done by one person acting alone, by the many acting against the few, or even by officials with which we elect.
You have the right to protect your own life, liberty and justly acquired Property from the forceful aggression of others.
But you do not have the right to initiate force against the life, liberty and property of other.
Thus, you have no right to designate some person to initiate force against others to your behalf.
You have the right to seek leaders for yourself, but you have no right to impose rules onto others no matter how officials are selected, they are only human beings and they have no right or claims that are higher than those of any other human beings.
Regardless of the imaginative labels for their behavior, or the numbers of people encouraging them,  officials have NO right to, Murder, Enslave or to Steal.
You cannot give them any rights that you do not have yourself.
Since you own your life you are responsible for your life.
You do not rent your life from others who demand your obedience, Nor are you a slave to others who demand your sacrifice.
You choose your own goals bases on your own values.
Success and failure are both the necessary incentives to learn and to grow.
Your action on behalf of others or their action on behalf of you is virtuous only when it is derived from voluntary mutual consent.
For virtue can exist only where there is free choice.
THIS is the basis of a truly free society.
It is not only the most practical and humanitarian foundation for human action it is also the most ethical.
Problems in the our country that arise from the initiation of force by government have a solution.
The solution is for the people of the nation to STOP asking government officials to initiate force on their behalf.
Evil does not arise only from evil people, but also from good people who tolerate the initiation of force as a means to their own ends.
In this manner, good people have empowered evil people throughout history.
Having confidence in a free society is to focus on the process of discovery in the marketplace of values, rather than to focus on some imposed vision or goal.
Using governmental force to impose a vision on others is intellectual sloth and typically results on unintended, perverse consequences.
Achieving a free society requires courage to Think, Talk and Act.
Especially when it is easier to do nothing…God Bless All American Patriots

This is beautiful. I'm going to email your blog post to my list of friends. You are a great American no mastter what the liberals say about you.lol. I just voted with my two sons. I bumped into one of my neighbors. We talked for about an hour. She is black and she wants to protest Obama. Her whole Church is against Obama and it is a "all black Church". She told me that her pastor told the congragation to go against Obama and the Democratic Party because they are inslaving all of us. This is the best news I've gotten in a long time. Can I get an Amen? This abortion thing in obamacare is a real sticking point with the black churches. Let's make sure it sticks.

I agree with Chris, well done here, as you know and say, that is the whole crux of the issues at hand, that being ownership of one's actions and inaction as well.

Complacency has allowed a Black Liberation Marxist to waltz right into the white house along with all kinds of bums.

I'm personally ashamed frankly and I don't care what people call it. I call it love of country, something he doesn't possess and thus we must take it back from him and 12 is too far off.

Look at this Mosque thing. On ground zero we're allowing this? Bahhh bahhh bahhh.. I can't even print what I think about that, not here. :(

Wow Mark, outstanding! I'm passing this along to everyone!
I voted today in Missouri. In all my years have never missed an opportunity to vote, but today's vote, even though a primary, was the first time I was highly motivated, eager and excited to get to the polling place.
Prop. 'C' offers Missourians an opportunity to tell Obama to F-off on his health care bill. Missouri expects it to pass and expects a legal fight afterwards.

The Rebuplican/Independant/Libertarian ballots were full of candidates, more than I have ever seen in all my times at the polls.
Americans want to fight this Maxist crap in Washington and they are lining up big time to do it.

Chicago Ray - if it's built, the Mosque won't stand.
The left is so stupid to keep turning the other cheek and think that Muslims will be their friends. If they get a strong foothold in this country, the Muslims will first kill Gays then the Liberals.
They won't go after the Conservatives because the Conservatives are the only smart ones to own guns for protection.

Chris said...

Mark it sure does look like we are doing something right by the mood of the liberals on my blog. Mark you are great at bashing their heads in. They are getting scary don't you think? Maybe we need to keep pushing their buttons to the point that they become ineffective. Feel free to invite them to this blog if you like.

Chris said...

John I felt the same way. I actually called people and guilted them into voting. We need to be active like the left. We need to use what they do and do it better. Keep up the great work out there.

Unknown said...

Amen, Chris. This is good news to hear. Glad to see a lot more people are coming around to the real Obama and what Congress is really all about and thanks for your kind words about this post. Sure pulls the 'pride of country' heart stings, doesn't it?
I got to tell you about the Libs on your blog.

Bruce has just lost it. He is in such a tail spin for the high of Obama election he can't even think straight anymore.

Joe is a formidable foe, but it's getting a little easier to counter his attacks.
I have egged Joe on to come on over here. Not sure if he could handle the 'Hornets Nest' though. LOL

Ray, thanks my friend. This really needs to reach everyone I can get this too.
I still can't figure out how this Oligarchist got elected. I mean how asleep was the electorate in 08????

"we must take it back from him and 12 is too far off." I am totally with you on this, Ray.
I mean two things concern me.
One, we will be somehow cheated out come this Nov.
I don't know how, but there is this underling feeling that I can't pin point too... YET.

Two, if the judges hearing the HC lawsuits rules that Congress has the authority to impose a penalty for NOT doing something, then Congress has the power to do anything it wants without representing constituency.
You know where that will lead us, right?

Ray, as for the Mosque, feel free to let'r rip.
You are a Patriot, you are entitled. And I will join in :)

Unknown said...

David (or John, LOL) thanks!!!
Pretty nice to see just how fired up the electorate is, even in a primary. The Left knows that the "Change" this clown in the Whitehouse has brought upon this nation is firing up everyone to get out an do you civic duty and toss the bums OUT.
Ray and I had ours back in Feb. seems like along time ago but I am fired up to get to the booths this Nov.
I am thinking that I will pass around flyers to inform the elderly in my neighborhood to take them to the polls if they need help getting there. Anything and everything to get people to right the wrong in this nation.

Prop 'C' passes big 73%. It's primary purpose is to keep the 'penalty' or 'tax' for not acquiring health care from being levied on Missouri citizens. Now, we expect a legal battle! Bring it on Obamass!

Unknown said...

NICE, David!!!
Wish we could vote on that here in IL.
But we don't have politicians that have any (as Sarah would say) BALLS to challenge the master in the Whitehouse.
Can't wait to draft posts for this legal challenge at MO. by the Feds :)
Good job to the 'Show Me State'!

Chris said...

Mark you said,"we will be somehow cheated out come this Nov.
I don't know how, but there is this underling feeling that I can't pin point too... YET." I've felt and heard this from others as well. It might be the fact that he took it from Hilary or maybe because he is so well connected to criminal organizations like ACORN,Tides,SEIU...

Chris said...

John the left will not give up what they have plundered without a violent fight. We do need to be ready for violence. We must never ever strick first but we must fight back in solidarity. Watch what is happening in Greece and then you will know what will happen here. The unions wont stop taking from we the people. And when we tell them NO they will lose it big time. When that happens the weak conservatives will want to breack the chain of solidarity and give in to their demands. We need leaders that will push back harder when the left have their tantrums. If they bitch about their pay cuts and strike fire them all. When they riot for losing their jobs put them in jail. We need to make it as painful as we can to be liberal and violent. We need to show them that their ways don't work on us and that they are only hurting themselves. Just like a crying child in the market checkout line crying for a candy. Tell them No, if they fall down and freak out take something away from them for freaking out.
And if they keep it up spank them. And the anarchist are all over the left and should be treated like enemies of the state. But instead homeland has market us enemies.

Hey everyone, this is David Johnson!

Chris, thanks for the heads up, hope it doesn't come to that.

Missouri prop 'C' final tally passed by 71% with 29% oppose. Many Dems crossed over to vote yes along with Repubs and Independents.

Concerning the Mosque here is a link to a story on the legal battle it now faces:

David, congrats to MO for telling Obama to go suck an egg.
We have GOT to get IL to follow suit!
