If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth. Reagan

What is disgusting is that when Reagan said “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.”, the US was #1 in freedom around the world, last year the US was #17th! (Or 18th depending on which you follow). A very sad state of affairs. The Founders would be disgusted.

Florida Voting 2018 – vote freedom for Florida

In general if you are voting for freedom, you should not be voting Democrat in Florida 2018.

You have a socialist – you work, I’ll eat – running for Governor and it continues on down the Democrat side of the ticket. The socialists, fascists, and communists – any authoritarian – can’t stand freedom and a President who is rolling back taxes, regulations, and government. It might cut off some of their “free” stuff. Here is a clue, nothing is free, you are either paying for it for yourself or using force to make someone else pay for it for you. The Democrat party fought a civil war to defend that in the old South and are still peddling the same abuse of one group for the benefit of another today.

The collectivist authoritarians – fascist, socialist, communist, it doesn’t matter the label – of the left have one goal and it is power over people and their lives. In short, enslaving people to fund their choices and do their bidding at the point of a gun. Their goal is Venezuela, Cuba, Mao’s China, the USSR, Eastern Europe of the 1950s through 1980s etc: anti-liberty prisons where the masses of people are forced to fund a small elite.

Don’t be one of the Left’s useful idiots. Vote freedom.

Hillary Clinton now wearing “Life Alert” at public events such as ozy.com?

Was former Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton while at Ozy.com on July 22, 2018 wearing a Life Alert type device?  It is hard to tell from the photos we’ve seen.  It clearly does not match the “Life Alert” brand exactly, but it doesn’t match her jewelry either. It seems a lot more functional.

What do you think it is?

Rule of Law vs Rule of Whim, Continued

Rule of Law vs Rule of Whim?

Harkening back to previous comments about the difference between the Rule of Law and the Rule of a Whim ( http://rights.com/2000/11/20/the-rule-of-law-or-the-rule-of-whim/ ) Federal district judge James Robart of Seattle’s recent ruling embodies the difference between the rule of law and the rule of whim.

Federal immigration law, Section 1182(f), could not be clearer:

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

When the judiciary ignores the law, the meaning of the “law” is lost. We are then no longer a country of laws, not men, we are a country of men’s whims, not law.

COOK: No one should have to decide between privacy or security. We should be smart enough to do both

APPLE’s Tim Cook: “Do we want our nation to be secure? Of course. No one should have to decide between privacy or security. We should be smart enough to do both. Both of these things are essentially part of the Constitution.”

None of us should accept that the government or a company or anybody should have access to all of our private information. This is a basic human right.

“I want to be absolutely clear that we have never worked with any government agency from any country to create a backdoor in any of our products or services. We have also never allowed access to our servers. And we never will.” “None of us should accept that the government or a company or anybody should have access to all of our private information. This is a basic human right. We all have a right to privacy. We shouldn’t give it up. We shouldn’t give in to scare-mongering.”

Tim Cook, Apple CEO, September 2014 and 2015
