The story of Noah has always fascinated me. For most of my life and to this day, I’ve fervently believed that the Creator of the world came to regret the evil of His creatures so vehemently that He ultimately destroyed all but a few with a global flood of water. Read more
I am outraged that the “powers that be” in the United States of America have no compunctions about sticking their noses into our daily business, recording our phone calls, emails, and movements, and essentially being “troublesome meddlers.”
“But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.”
– 1 Peter 4:15
Although I recommend alternative methods, I am in great sympathy with “The Day We Fight Back” campaign, and so I have set up this website to support it. Tomorrow, February 11th, 2014, the banner from that campaign will be featured here.
Why do I recommend alternatives? It’s just that I no longer expect any kind of “representation” from my “representatives” in Washington, DC (AKA, Sodom on the Delaware.)
And so, have at it on February 11th!, when it comes to complaining and pushing back at the beast in Washington! At least let them know of your disapproval! However, in addition, I urge the following:
- Withdraw all financial support from the state
- Withhold all approval and consent for their evil
- Create things of true value in the world!
- Conduct all enterprises privately and agoristically
- Do not impose government’s evil acts against your neighbors
- Do not support the coercive state (think ZAP)
- Encourage others to do the same!
And now, addressing my fellow Christians directly:
Do you profess to believe and live by Jesus’ second great command, “Love your neighbor as yourself?” If so, I urge you to abandon all support for the evil human government that you are presently using, by proxy, to coerce your neighbor by force.
Please read and actually think about these simple lessons presented by the Zero Aggression Project.
Politics is obsolete!
Yes, I realize that’s a bold statement – especially considering that I’m writing this article and categorizing it under the heading of “Politics!” But, before you dismiss me, may I ask you a few questions?
Do you like politics? If so, why do you like it?
Those who actually like politics generally enjoy debate, and find the heat of argument stimulating.
On the other hand, most people I know despise politics, or at the very least, find politics to be a rather uncomfortable subject. Have you ever thought about why that is?
Politics is the art of government. It has everything to do with ruling people. Even in the form of government known as “democracy,” practiced in much of the world today, politics is in its very essence one group of people (the “majority”) forcing and imposing their will upon another group of people (the “minority”).
In our heart of hearts, every one of us finds it repugnant to have our choices and our actions dictated to us by force. Jesus, arguably the greatest man who ever lived, said that to “love your neighbor as yourself” is the second greatest commandment (Matthew 22:39)
Every great teacher that has ever lived has told us that we should treat others the way we wish to be treated, and our own consciences tell us the same. Why then would we want to ever have any part in a system that forces our neighbor to do things at the point of a gun?
Politics is obsolete! Examine your own heart and conscience, and see if that isn’t so? And when you finally come to that conclusion, why not act on it? Abandon your support of political action. Support voluntary cooperation and organization! Stop abusing your neighbor through the proxy of government, and start treating your neighbor like you want to be treated.

The United States continues its downward spiral on every front. According to this article in Investors Business Daily, the US doesn’t even rank in the Top 15 of a list of the 20 most economically free countries:
“US Not Even In Top 15 of Freest Economies” – (Link: http://goo.gl/Yz3ED4)
This is yet another confirmation of the evil of human government. When men run things, they tend to run them into the ground. It might be amusing were it not so tragic in its consequences! There is a direct correlation between the level of economic freedom in a country and the per-capita prosperity. Americans are all the poorer for their monstrous federal government’s penchant for overweening regulation and control. Read more
Here is an “open letter” that I sent to a list of friends today… Read on! :
Subject: Fwd: Share your letter to Congress with your friends
Date: 3/19/2013 10:51 AM
Yes, this is “out of the blue!” and so feel free to delete! 😉
I’m forwarding you a copy of a letter that I sent today to my “congress critters” – my “representative” in congress and “my” two US senators from California. Read more
Maybe it’s real; maybe it’s just wishful thinking…
I have long been strongly drawn to audacious efforts to break out of the current world communication and financial paradigms. Here is one that sure looks good to me at first blush: Bit Billions.
Imagine an internet that *cannot be shut down* by the arbitrary whims of centralized power. An internet that is based on purely peer to peer connections among computers owned by millions of users. Read more
I hope you’ll take a few minutes today to hear what Shepherd Chuck Baldwin has to say about civil government. In all seriousness, please just click on the image below; if you listen for only five minutes, you will hear the core import of this hard-hitting message about the Christian’s responsibility towards civil government.
Romans 13 and the proper jurisdiction of government has been so widely misconstrued by so many churches that the plain, simple, clear meaning sounds almost foreign in most ears.
Don’t remain in the dark about this! I’ll leave you with my simple paraphrase of Romans 13:1:
“Everyone, from the highest official to the lowest peasant, must be in submission to the Higher Powers – namely, God and His word. Apart from God, there is no other authority, and any so-called authority that departs from His precepts is of none authority!”
This gem of an article appeared in my email box today, and I thought I’d share it with you as yet another instance of the insanity of allowing “government” to rule our lives.
If you’ve bought and tried to use a gas can recently, you’re no doubt already fuming…
If you haven’t, then you may find this article useful due to the recommended “work-arounds.”
The moral of it all? PUSH BACK!!! – “government” is almost unmitigated evil, and it must be stopped!
You’d think that your “representatives” in Washington would have some motivation to actually represent you, wouldn’t you? Think again!
This short movie trailer should make you absolutely ill:
How can they possibly represent you if they don’t even bother to READ the legislation they pass that purports to bind you and your wallet and your life to their bidding?!!! Read more
The following essay was published yesterday by my friend Jim Babka of the Downsize DC organization. I think it is remarkable, that Christians particularly need to hear it, and so I re-publish it here by permission:
This is an open letter to my fellow Christians. If it moves you, please share it with other believers. It is intended to be a chain letter, to spread and cause discussion. Here is The Golden Rule as expressed by Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ . . .
“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you…” And in this instance its “golden” because it “…sums up the Law and the Prophets.” [Matthew 7:12 (NIV)]
On Tuesday, January 17, 2012, in the South Carolina Republican debate, candidate Ron Paul said the following…
My point is, if another country does to us what we do others, we’re not going to like it very much. So I would say that maybe we ought to consider a golden rule in foreign policy. [loud boos begin to drown out Paul] Don’t do to other nations what we don’t want to have them do to us. [indecipherable angry shouts can be heard]
The booing stunned me. Maybe it wouldn’t have a while back. Maybe I would’ve booed too. After all . . . Read more
