"The man who does not do his own thinking is a slave, and is a traitor to
himself and his fellow men."
Ingersoll - (1833- 1899)
"The state of monarchy is the most supreme thing
upon earth, for kings are not only God's lieutenants upon earth, and
sit upon God's throne, but even by God himself are called gods...and
so their power after a certain relation compared to divine
power...for if you will consider the attributes to God, you shall se
how they agree in the person of a king...to dispute what God does is
blasphemy...so it is sedition in subjects to dispute what a king may
do in the height of his power. I would not have you meddle with such
ancient rights of mine as I have received from my predecessors...
I, King of Scotland and England, known for "King James' Bible"
"There exists a shadowy Government with its own
Air Force, it own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the
ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from
all checks and balances, and free from the law itself"
Daniel K Inouye, Hawaii
"The falsification of history has done more to
mislead humans than any single thing known to mankind"
"I wonder why progress looks so much like
"I have been convinced that we, as an Order, have
come under the power of some very evil occult Order, profoundly
versed in science, both occult and otherwise, though not infallible,
their methods being black magick, that is to say, electro-magnetic
power, hypnotism, and powerful suggestion. We are convinced that the
Order is being controlled by some Sun Order, after the nature of the
Illuminati, if not by that Order itself"
Brunswick, Grand Master of World Freemasonry
"Not only were many of the founders of the U.S. Masons, but they
received aid from a secret and august body existing in Europe, which

Manly P. Hall
(33° Freemason) in "Secrets of the Great Pyramid"
"It's just a ride and we can change it any time we
want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money, a
choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put
bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love
instead see all of us as one."
"People have not been horrified by war to a sufficient extent ... War will exist
until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same
reputation and prestige as the warrior does today"
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
"Matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, We are all one
consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, There's no such thing as death,
Life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves"
"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce
man, brave, hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds however, the timid join
him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."

"If... the machine of government... is of such a nature that it requires you to
be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law"
Henry David Thoreau, On the Duty of Civil Disobedience, 1849
"The enemy aggressor is always pursuing a course of larceny, murder, rapine and
barbarism. We are always moving forward with high mission, a destiny imposed by
the Deity to regenerate our victims while incidentally capturing their markets,
to civilise savage and senile and paranoid peoples while blundering accidentally
into their oil wells."
John Flynn, 1944
"Anyone who has proclaimed violence his method inexorably must choose lying as
"Patriotism is a religion, the egg from which wars are hatched."

"It's important to realize that whenever you give power to politicians or
bureaucrats, it will be used for what they want, not for what you want."
"Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does NOT mean to stand by the
President or any other public official save exactly to the degree in which he
himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he
efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact
extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the
"Americans need to understand the difference between patriotism and nationalism.
A patriot loves his land and his people. A nationalist loves his government. The
patriot voluntarily does what is necessary to protect his land and his people. A
nationalist blindly obeys his government."
"Whenever legislators endeavor to take away and
destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary
power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are
thereupon absolved from any further obedience."

"The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any
charge known to the law, and particularly to deny him the judgment of his peers,
is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all totalitarian
government whether Nazi or Communist."

"[Y]our national greatness, swelling vanity; your denunciation of tyrants,
brass-fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery;
your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious
parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and
hypocrisy -- a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of
Frederick Douglass - 1818 - 1895
"There are some things the general public does not need to know, and shouldn't.
I believe democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to
