Real Freedom

What makes you a Libertarian?  Words have meanings, this is why so much NeoCon energy went into redefining the words, 'Conservative,'  and 'Libertarian.'

Redefining words allows us to be manipulated using ideas which no longer mean what they did to our ancestors.  Understanding how the words, 'Classical Liberal,' 'Conservative,' and 'Libertarian' have been redefined clears up a lot of confusion.  

To begin:  

The ideas of Libertarianism are firmly founded on the Natural Rights theories cited by the  
Declaration of Independence 

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator 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, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.  CAUSES

The Founders meant what they said and wrote and the words of the Declaration clarified for all time the origin of our rights.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

To establish this as true was reason the American Revolution fought, won, and.......lost.  

Women, especially in the New England states, were freer before the Revolution than afterward.  They could own property in their own right and the franchise depended not on gender, but on owning 50 pounds in property.  

People, in this case males, were extremely reluctant to give up privileges they have come to think of as essential to their economic and personal well being.  Viewing women as second class citizens and property.  Blacks and the institution of slavery was also seen as a right which they did not want wrested from their hands.  

The Curious Institution on which the Southern Elite depended economically and for the continuance of their  culture was allowed to stay in place, despite assurances to the contrary. 

And although some New England states moved to affirm women in their rights of property and franchise this was successfully opposed - with statutes which began the process of dictating the control of property and performance of individuals through the control asserted by government.   

We don't need to get into the rationalizations and justifications for this.  Today they would be seen as blatantly and embarrassingly stupid and acknowledged to be without merit.  The Theory of the Homunculus was long since debunked by science.

In addition, forces were stirring in Europe with the Marxist Revolutions of 1848 which hinged on centralized governments as essential.  The rationalizations for this was economic equality.  The reality was that Marxists were heavily subsidized by the Rothschild banking cabal and mercantilists.   They saw the end of their long con if all individuals were equally recognized as having rights.  

Legislation, and the potential regulatory power of government were needed so the class system, essential to the thinking of the elite, I call Greedville, could continue its reign of domination.  

Lincoln's War for Northern Aggression imposed the regulatory infrastructure which dominates Americans today.  The accrual of power to the Federal government when into fast forward with the public relations campaign around slavery.  Not that slavery was right, but killing people was not the way to correct the problem.  

Letting the South leave and suffer the costs of enforcing slavery while the Northern States and Movement for Abolition continued to increase these costs would have worked far more rapidly and with less trauma to all.  

Instead, every generation since has been confronted with the problem of ideas, based on Marxism, dressed up like an old whore in lace and satin, to seduce them into seeing government as the solution and not the real problem.  (With apologies to women and men selling services on the free market.) 

All the wars fought, from the Civil War through those today, have been wars of economic aggression.  Policies, such as the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Reserve System are examples of economic war without the unfurling of flags and uniforms.  The dead do not come home in coffins but are buried by debt.  

But there remained in America a solid adherence to the ideas once identified as 'Classical Liberalism' and then as 'Conservatism,' until the pivotal campaign of Barry Goldwater.  

Goldwater, the obvious replacement for Robert Taft as Mr. Conservative, was a figure who could capture the hearts of Americans with his no-nonsense and pungent quotes. His personal history as an aviator in war, and as a businessman also helped. 

The story of how the Cabal destroyed his reputation and political future also includes the redefining of the word, 'Conservative.'  This allowed for the later redefinition which still haunts us today of, NeoConservative.   

Here are five questions to ask any candidate today who claims to be a Conservative and how Goldwater would have answered.  

1. What policy should be followed on gays serving in the military?

          “You don't have to be straight to shoot straight.” - Barry Goldwater

2. If elected, would you support a woman's right to have an abortion?

        “Today’s so-called ‘conservatives’ don’t even know what the word means. They think
         I’ve turned liberal because I believe a woman has a right to an abortion. That’s a
        decision that’s up to the pregnant woman, not up to the pope or some do-gooders or
        the Religious Right. It’s not a conservative issue at all.” ~Barry Goldwater

      When Goldwater observed the right trying to use government to enforce private morality
      he spoke up for women's right to abortion and gay rights. -

                                                                        By Jeffrey J. Volle

          Goldwater and his wife were founding members of Planned Parenthood in Arizona.

3. Do you support legalization of marijuana?

          Goldwater endorsed an Arizona initiative to legalize medical marijuana.

4. Will you support an investigation on the Federal Reserve, the malfeasance which has taken place in banks and financial institutions related to foreclosures, robosigning, and other questionable practices?

       “The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates
        outside the control of Congress, and manipulates the credit of the  United States, 
                and for that matter, the credit of the entire world."  
                                                                                  Warning by Senator Barry Goldwater: 

5. What is your position on damage to private property and health resulting from oil spills and fracking?

           Position on damage to private property and health resulting from oil spills and fracking

          - “While I am a great believer in the free enterprise system and all that it entails, I am
          an even stronger believer in the right of our people to live in a clean and
           pollution-free environment.” ~Barry Goldwater

Electing Reagan in 1980 advanced the agenda for the coming NeoCons more rapidly than you can imagine.  

Ronnie betrayed the people who got him elected governor in California, United Republicans of California.  After two terms of fast-forward into centralized government the group met and passed a resolution asking Americans not to vote for Ronnie is he ran for President or Vice President.    

More in this article I wrote and posted on July 19,  2007.

Ronald Reagan - The Ugly Truth 

 This revelation was personally painful for me because my father, Dr. Arthur F. Pillsbury, considered Ronnie to be a friend.  But Dad did not trust him, refusing to go to Sacramento with him when he was elected Governor or D. C. when Ronnie was elected President.  

Nancy said the natural heir to Reagan's legacy is Newt Gingrich.  This is accurate.  Both were in it for the money.  

With the election of George H. W. Bush as president the stage was set for a massive feeding frenzy by the same interests who had originally subsidized Marx.  

This is the short version of what could be a much more detailed narrative explaining why the nexus point represented by the placement of the Libertarian Party is such a threat to Greedville. 

But the place where Right and Left meet, Point Purple, is the place Greedville wants to remain uninhabited.

For Action to Happen We Need Maximum Traction.  

The other issue to keep in mind is this.  The false dichotomy of 'Private', meaning individual, now redefined to include 'corporate,' and 'Government.'  

Two choices, neither of which can provide stability because to be effective individuals need to have skills for cooperating, the first form of insurance, and accountability is tough when dealing with those who claim immunity for what they do.   

Looong before government was more than an ambitious warrior who wanted to keep more of the loot than his contemporaries, the institution where human action took place was the community.  

People had to persuade each other and know their ideas and suggestions would be judged by things like, "Did that guy ever return that awl I loaned him?" and "Aren't her kids the ones who kicked dirt on Old Sarah?" 

Community is where we are known for what we do and these acts are compared to what we say.   It all begins by being, and acting, your word.
