What do you guys do?
    #2828412 - 06/25/04 04:44 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Its great that we all share ideas and its obvious that people want to change some things in the world here. But my question is, are any of you doing anything about it other than whining about it online. Which of you are politically active, and what exactly do you do to consider yourself that?  Saying that the world is coming to and end because of the capitolist system is retarded, people have been taken advantage of by the rich since there were people richer than others.  Its not about preventing the end of the world as much as it should be about insuring a good future.  Just wondering what you guys do to try to do that, whether your right wing or left wing, doesn't matter. :grin:

I telephone, email and write letters to my 'representatives.' I've written letters to the editor of local newspapers. I've gone to events such as hemp fests and helped man booths for freedom movement outreach using the tools from The Advocates for Self-Government. I talk to as many people as I can about my views, and why my opinions are what they are and have had some success getting people to stop supporting the duopoly (such as family members and friends). My brother who is a cop and green beret master sergeant (got back from 2 years of active duty a few months ago) has told me he will no longer support anyone from the major parties anymore and will vote for Michael Badnarik for president (he knows that Iraq is all about the military industrial complex and is not fooled by the propaganda - he's seen the pork barrel projects with his own eyes and recently went to a funeral for an old team member who died for it).

Oh, about 19 years ago I quit a well paying and secure civil service position because I had come to the conclusion that what I was doing was immoral and I could no longer in good conscience continue on that path.

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

How do you plan on getting from Mexico to Asia if your poor?  Riding that big bird you got there?:goodluck:

And why didn't you answer anyone in your racism thread?  Change your mind?

I mainly sit around and contemplate what could be done to bring our government under the control of the people.

I sometimes write my congressmen and senators. But Kay Bailey Hutchinson is the only one who occasionaly writes me back with generic letters always in opposition to my stance. The others haven't bothered responding even once. They seem to purposely try and weaken your resolve by these tactics.

What we really need to do is come up with a way for fundraising for the Libertarian party. At least those of us with any sense. And coming up with a clever ad campaign to illustrate our positions. Michael Moore's technique seems to be effective. Except we'd have no reason to lie.

"How do you plan on getting from Mexico to Asia if your poor? Riding that big bird you got there?"

No see i have enough money to travel for 3 years or so, depending on how well i moderate my spending, and after that ill be dirt poor. As a result of the traveling.


"And why didn't you answer anyone in your racism thread? Change your mind? '

well i was away for a while and when i came back there was like seven pages. I scrolled through it quickly, saw alot of off topic chatter and some pictures of a dog sucking a guys dick and some other cool stuff, didn't notice anyone asking questions of me, but i didnt take the time to read all the posts, as no one seemed to be on topic.

If you guys want to be racist, feel free. I have been known to use the word nigger in a joking sense among my friends, mainly from listening to too much hip hop. Normally i wouldnt have said anything about racial slurs, but i found it really gross since we were talking about a guy who just got his head chopped off and someone was making fun of 'slants'.

I guess i jost dont understand most people, but whatever floats your boat.

Not to derail this thread, but to be racist one has to believe in their own supiority above another race.

I would venture most simply like the humorous application that these words provide because here the words are given exactly the attention they deserve.

Usually.

Also, I'm just being playfully hostile. Don't take me seriously. (Disclaimer: Not that I thought that you were)

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

I write to my senators and congressmen. I also plan on eventually buying a sniper rifle, in case the time ever comes to take up arms against the state.
