Barack Obama Is No Robin Hood!

Outlawed probably in the 12th or 13th century, Robin Hood stole from political law makers who were living lavishly, financing programs which rewarded their non-producing friends by heavily taxing actual producers of goods and services. It is said Robin Hood gave the stolen money back to its rightful owners … the producers who had been taxed almost to death.

Now in the 21st century, Barack Obama and his cronies are living lavishly while pushing through programs which reward non-producers by heavily taxing anyone who works hard and produces wealth. Will modern Robin Hoods respond?

If Robin Hood were alive today, would he merrily rob from Barack Obama and those who benefit from government grants? Would Robin Hood see it as no sin to rob from the robbers?

There is inspiration for such a response in modern fiction. In Ayn Rand’s prophetic novel Atlas Shrugged, Ragnar Danneskjöld, like Robin Hood, steals from the government and from those who benefit from collusion with the government … and gives to producers. Danneskjöld's motivation is to restore to creative people the money which was unjustly taken away from them - specifically, their income tax payments.

Although Danneskjöld would surely rob from Obama socialists just as the original Robin Hood robbed from tax collectors, his stated purpose in the novel is to defeat the “Robin Hood concept” as it has wrongly evolved in the popular mind, namely the idea that it’s somehow morally okay to rob from the law-abiding rich as long as you give to the poor.

Edward Hudgins has written of Ayn Rand’s prophetic insight regarding socialist “rob the rich” policies, “She showed that behind such tax policies is envy, that is, resentment against individuals not because of their vices but, rather, their virtues and achievements. The egalitarian perversion of justice sees those who stand out through their own efforts as deserving scorn rather than admiration.”

If modern day Robin Hoods were to become active would they really be criminals? Or would they simply be setting things right? One thing sure, the general public would learn a valuable lesson: Barack Obama is no Robin Hood.

If you are just waking up to your innate libertarian side and want to investigate deeper the underlying nonsense of Obama's religion of government worship, give yourself the pleasure of reading Ayn Rand's epic and masterful novel, Atlas Shrugged

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles

For the last election year studied (1998) some of the highest percentage of votes for Libertarian Party candidates were for candidates who had been studying free of charge the lessons of: Course in Political Miracles

“I did not understand what made me free, nor what my freedom is, nor where to look to find it. Father, I have searched in vain until I heard Your Voice directing me. Now I would guide myself no more. For I have neither made nor understood the way to find my freedom. But I trust in You. You Who endowed me with my freedom as Your holy Son will not be lost to me. Your Voice directs me." (Prayer from A Course in Miracles)

I'm not comfortable with the idea of stealing from anybody. I'd rather be allowed to keep the money I've earned without being taxed to death to provide free stuff for layabouts.

BO is no visionary, he's an affirmative action president and the less damage he's allowed to accomplish the better.

The Winning Tao Of Liberty

One who follows the Liberty Way with people, 
does not use weapons to enforce his will. 
Initiating force always leads to pain and suffering. 

With the Liberty Way where armies once gathered,
briars and brambles now blossom. 

A liberty leader exercises his leadership, 
and that is all. 
If he uses force, it is not to seize for himself. 

He skillfully overcomes liberty's enemies, 
but is not proud. 
His progress might be admired, 
yet he is not boastful. 
His work may even win accolades, 
still he does not brag. He fulfills his purpose for liberty, 
because he knows he has no other choice. 

The Liberty Way is fulfilling one's purpose without using force. 
The above is a liberty interpretation of a passage from the ancient spiritual classic Tao Te Ching.  As in all spiritual works which have been venerated worldwide down through the centuries a difference is recognized between (1) the use of force by ego determination for ego purposes, and (2) the use of force in defense of the freedom to act …

How Liberty Lovers Can Assure Winning

The freedom-loving Libertarian Party has been active 46 years, yet manages to gather only a minuscule percentage of the vote. Many would say this is pathetic.

The Republican Freedom Caucus in the House of Representatives heroically saves America from a disastrous re-application of the ObamaCare premise that dictatorship of people's health insurance is government's business ... a rescue effort for which they should be presenting themselves as national champions. Instead they allow themselves to be portrayed as villains. Maybe not pathetic, but a mixed bag.

It's not that freedom is no longer considered a value among Americans. It's that modern freedom lovers haven't yet learned how to win fully, completely, without limitation. Liberty lovers achieve only partial victories because we do not have a winning mindset.

To achieve complete and lasting victory liberty lovers need to transform their minds and think like winners.

To do this we must first train ourselves to …

The Libertarian Way: So Much More Than The NAP!

How often do we hear the word "libertarian" being used in contexts relating to politics or some kind of political understanding? Even most dictionary definitions of "libertarian" emphasize political implications.

Yet libertarians will never experience the full personal benefit of their libertarian impulse, and never be completely successful in any political activism they undertake, unless they understand the Libertarian Way is much deeper and more basic than concern with political conditions.

Before there is politics ... before there are relationships ... there is life. When human beings feel their deepest-rooted inner desires (as opposed to addiction to intellectualism for the purpose of avoiding the depths of their being), they sense inside themselves a yearning for the fullness of life to shine forth and be experienced.

"Fullness" is the key. Liberal-progressive dictators will tell you their programs and agendas help people have a better life, but th…
