The Most Selfish Political Statement in the History of Mankind

“… with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, “

  • Whose life?
  • Whose liberty?
  • Whose pursuit of happiness?
  • Whose happiness are we all pursuing?

Our fucking own.

  • Not your mother’s.
  • Not your father’s.
  • Not your girlfriend’s.
  • Not your family’s.
  • Not that of your “group”.
  • Not that of your “race”.
  • Not that of your school’s.
  • Not that of your siblings.
  • Not that of your friend’s.
  • Not that of your political party.
  • Not that of your entire mother fucking country.

You are pursuing, and have a right to pursue, your own happiness.

All rights are of the individual. All rights are absolute.

You do not “kinda sorta maybe” have this right or that right.

Your rights, are not contextual. Your rights are not a matter of opinion — majority, minority, mob, judge, legislature, or otherwise.

6.5 billion people could declare tomorrow you don’t have a right to your life and liberty.

This would not change the fact that you have a right to your life and liberty.

Remember this when scum bag politicians that deserve to burn in hell — if there was such a place — incrementally and subtly chip away at your rights, as they did your parents, and their parents, and their parents before them.

Remember this when they chip away at the little protection your rights have left, and the rights of your friends, of your family’s, and of those you love.

Remember that “good by force” is the hallmark of the destruction of everything you value in the world. Everything you’ve ever heard, seen, touched, felt, experienced, and created.

    It’s a shame that there aren’t any candidates running for President who represent that statement.

      Of course there is, Ron Paul, and to a limited extent, Gary Johnson. While I do not pretend that Gary has a shot on his own at winning the republican nomination, Ron Paul certainly does, and Gary would make an excellent VP.

    Ron Paul:

    -Denies a woman’s right to an abortion.

    -Openly denounces the separation of church and state.

    -Endorses the idea that state and local governments have any more rights than the Federal government (50 tyrannies instead of one).

    -Endorses the idea that one’s right to live and work in America is determined by the accident of his birthplace and denies the rights of deserving foreigners to come here.

    -Blames America for the murders committed by Muslim tribalists and denies America’s right to retaliate. Denies America’s right to protect its vital economic interests abroad. Affirms the non-existent rights of dictators. Wants to appease the world’s biggest sponsor of terrorism (Iran) by letting them have a nuclear weapon.

    Vote NO on Dr. No.

    Maybe one day we will have a true champion of liberty run for President. Fir now, it’s straight downhill for the ol’ U.S. of A.

      – Ron Paul is running for federal office — and is correct in his assertion that the federal government has no authority yay/nay on abortion. He has a personal bias against abortion, but is ultra, ultra clear that this is not relevant per running for president of the federal government of the United States. You may not like this, but this is the law and he is committed to upholding it. You want the federal government involved in abortion, you need an amendment to the constitution.

      – Ron Paul is in no way aggressive in his religious beliefs. Never mind that this is not a critical issue, unlike the separation of state and economics which is fast dissipating if there ever was one, and absolute individual liberty.

      – This third point makes little sense. What specifically are you trying to say? We live in a federal union of States, whether you like it or not and there are laws governing how those governments are to run.

      – Ron Paul is a strong proponent of man’s individual right to his life and liberty. I’ve also seen him endorse how easy it was to immigrate here ~100 years ago, and what a fucking disaster it is now, like everything else federal.

      – Ron Paul voted to hunt down and kill Bin Laden after 9/11. The rest of this point is nonsensical, based on false information, irrational, or some combination there of.

      Votes yes on the last politician worth a damn.

    Your mistake is that you place written law ahead of moral law. As you have written before, the only moral purpose of government at any level is the protection of individual rights. Just as laws that infringe on individual rights are invalid, so too are laws that prohibit government from protecting individual rights. Therefore, the absence of a constitutional amndment authorizing the government to protect abortion rights can and should be disregarded. If the state governments would criminalize abortion, the Federal government should step in and garuntee to uphold abortion rights. Protecting individual rights is ALWAYS the right thing for the government to do regardless of the flaws in the Constitution. A proper Constitution is important, but philosophy is more important than any political device.
