States are self-destructive, so there is always hope.  They're like balloons, growing larger and larger until they pop and are reduced to scraps of their former selves.  So don't worry; this ship is sinking.  What we need to concentrate on is circulating the idea of freedom so when this empire falls, we don't replace it with another one.

Like you have so many other important things to do that you dont have time to spread the message of liberty.

It isn't a chore if you are passionate about it.

Here's what you do:

Purchase a gun. Get some ammo. Load the gun. Turn off the safety. Put it to your head. Pull the trigger.

Problem solved.

Just don't use military surplus ammo.

You can borrow my suicide machine.

Why bother? Because it's your life, you have the right to defend it. Even if it means to your death. That sort of conviction tells much about your character, since if you stand up for yourself it means you are who you want to be: a human. And we're not talking about doing the suicide bomber thing, we're talking about fighting any way you can to live the life you rightfully earn of your own effort. Be it through business, political protest, or outright revolution, you are asserting a defense of that life of yours. We're not like that starving kid that Taors put up, completely helpless to the actions of others, we do have a choice by comparison. And that's good thing, because when we stand up for ourselves, we're in some capacity standing up for kids like that one, those that have no voice, no choice, and no chance. We don't do it for them, we do it for ourselves, but it still carries the same hope that child has for a better future. A future not marred by evil, injustice, and insanity. A future we make everyday. A future that is all our own. To look forward, not back.

there is one flaw no one cares
I guess the 60+ people who showed up at the free-stater meeting in Manchester yesterday didn't care.
They sure did a good job of hiding their apathy ;)

Damn thing about it is, that it is even illegal to do that. :lol:
