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 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…

Lifting Others Up To The Libertarian Way

Probably everyone has experienced moments of the fullness of life: the enthralling love that radiates from our heart when it seems we have met our destined soulmate, the joy that explodes out of our being when at the very last split second our team scores the improbable win of the century, the peace that flows from the depths of our soul when the sunrise suddenly bathes our mountain fishing lake and all seems momentarily "on earth as it is in heaven."

The fullness of life is within us, but doesn't too often emanate from most of us because our minds employ many devices for closing down our being. Yet there is a Way which leads us to constant heart and soul opening and nearly uninterrupted experience of the fullness of life. In common street language this Way is often called "live and let live." Although this encompasses all areas of life, when practiced in the context of people's political interactions it is called The Libertarian Way.

Notice that when we a…

Jesus Christ Does Not Favor Taxation

Heading into midterm election season in America we are faced with an illusory alternative: Caesar in Democratic Party clothing, or in some districts Little Caesar in Republican Party clothing. Apparently what makes the illusion saleable is the mistaken idea (used by Caesar as propaganda) that Jesus Christ was a socialist who supported taxation.

Fascists, communists, and progressives (all three branches of socialism), even after all the misery they have created the world over in the last 100 to 150 years, even now still aim a loud speaker toward us blaring the long broken record of their propaganda mantra: “Jesus was a socialist,” by which they try to convince us that Jesus advocated using government force or threat of force to redistribute wealth.

We’ve addressed the "socialist" issue in the past (See Jesus Christ's Love vs. Obama Style Socialism)

Nonetheless, the illusion could not be sold to the public if it were not for modern conservatives insisting that Jesus supported…
