The surrender of the Confederacy was indeed a sorrowful event. It allowed the radical Republicans, who were the ‘big govt.’ advocates of our day, to turn our nation into an empire. Read “The Real Lincoln.”
At least you mentioned tax day, the day millions file forms they’re not legally required to file for an amendment that was never ratified by enough states to become law:
FK – Yeah let’s wait for heyzeus to take over and burn billions including little kids and babies alive in fire forever.
The golden rule is great if those applying it share your values. The problem being that we’re still a very primitive species and still exist in a very dark age and billions have no problem being slaves to one institution or entity or another and have no problem voting to force the rest of us into their version.
That’s why a portion of the Founders were ‘anti-federalists’ that insisted on a Bill of Rights that was designed to force the government to acknowledge our natural born rights which are based in the most basic right any creature possesses, the right to self defense.
They also enumerated the right to avoid cruel and unusual punishment which negates the christian and raghead god’s version of ‘justice.’
The biggest problem we face besides our natural born ignorance that so many struggle so hard to not overcome is natural born cowardice. That’s why so few stand up to bullies on the train or where ever else, to include bullies with badges that enforce laws that have no place in a free society.
And I bet that train is a ‘gun free zone.’
What I’ve never heard the anarchists explain is what do we do about those who would seek to force their version of ‘justice’ or ‘just-us’ on others in a non-governed world? Since most humans are basically cowards few would stand up to them, as few stand up to the system we have now.
While there are times when many of us would like to be able to use the excuse ‘He needed killin,’ the simple fact is that others could apply the same to us for their own seemingly legitimate to them reasons.
And oh yes, I’d love to be shooting bullies, if only we had a nation of men…
