IF YOU GIVE THE GOVERNMENT THE POWER TO TELL PEOPLE WHAT TO DO, EVENTUALLY THEY WILL TAKE THAT POWER TO TELL YOU WHAT TO DO.
“Happiness and prosperity must be grounded on people’s FREEDOM TO CHOOSE, and their right to do things that please themselves, as long as this doesn’t infringe on the rights of others.
If you give the government the power to tell you that you can’t smoke dope in your house or hire a sex worker, it is only a short step to [them] banning books, censoring the press, and creating a police state. —Randy Gage Read More
SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE ARE NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION
The ‘Separation’ protects individuals’ rights, not the governments. “The framers were not only decreeing that Congress could not establish a religion, but also reassuring the states that they could establish religions and Congress couldn’t stop them…[It’s about] the federal government’s involvement in religion. Even Jefferson’s “wall of separation between church and state” LETTER referred only to the federal government and assumed states could have established religions.” —Ann Coulter Read More
BE CAREFUL U.S., EUROPE, AND ALL WESTERN NATIONS
“In fundamentalist Islam, there is no law but religious law, the Sharia…To the devout Muslim, the Holy Law of Islam is all the law that is needed. It is absurd to think that a parliament or a congress or any other deliberative body could better the Holy Law of Islam. This leaves no room in strict Islam for self-government or representative government…The concept of freedom has a very limited meaning in Islam.” —Chris and Ted Stewart Read More

You are responsible for yourself and your family. “The government cannot be responsible for your prosperity, any more than your doctor can be responsible for your health, or your church/temple/synagogue can be responsible for your spirituality. If you want to be prosperous, you have to take responsibility for that yourself.” - Randy Gage Read More
