    Most everyone, who is even remotely aware of their surroundings, realizes that an intense political debate is going on in the U.S.A. I would venture to say, that most Americans believe that this debate is between Republicans and Democrats. While that is somewhat true, this debate is becoming increasingly focused on far more serious issues than mere party politics. I believe we've reached a turning point in our country, a turning point that is as old as human history.

    After WWII, many western countries were rethinking which form of government they wanted. The choices came down to free market Capitalism or some form of collectivism, that usually being Fascism or Socialism. One of the people taking notice of this situation, was an Austrian born economist and philosopher named Friedrich Hayek and he was so concerned about the abandonment of Capitalism and the individual liberty that Capitalism fosters, that he wrote a book on the subject. His book, "The Road To Serfdom", published in Britain in 1944, looked at the long term results of moving toward a collectivist form of governance and examined the many misconceptions that the press of the day had propagated. "The Road To Serfdom", was met with some resistance within the academic community but was successful never the less. Today it is having a resurgence and has climbed in popularity in spite of the rather dry subject matter (economics & politics) and not being an easy read. It is, however, a necessary piece of information for those, like me, that are concerned in our Countries current direction and the danger of losing Constitutional Liberty.

    As I have stated many times, our Country was founded on the principle that was enshrined in the Deceleration of Independence:

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    This one statement was the basis of our principle of God given individual Liberty and Freedom, that each person could endeavor to succeed or fail in the pursuit of their dreams or desires. This principle is totally incompatible with any collectivist form of governance, be it Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Nazism or any collectivist offshoot. As Hayek points out, an integral part of collectivism is central planning, whereby the government leaders focus the society on issues for "the common good". This will necessarily preclude any direction toward individualism and ultimately result in totalitarianism.

    I'm sure many of you think of me as some "right wing nut job" and that's ok. I'm not asking anyone to agree with me but to become involved and informed on your own. Find your own truth before it becomes too late to be involved in the debate and direction of America.

    We seem to be thinking the same thing here, even though I have never read that particular book.

    Kerf, you have a great way with words. It is exteremely difficult to find the truth.

    The elete own the mass media, public education, the "President" and a big chunk of congress.
    They have their sights set on the internet- to control and destroy the flow of knowledge.

    I am not throwing in the towel on fighting them, but their plan for a one world govt. (New World Order) has gone forward for centuries and looks like it will come sooner- rather than later.

    I am in the Gospel ship awaiting blast off.
    Plenty of room still left onboard.

    When I was born, a great "Blessing" was bequeathed to me an I have an obligation to pass that "Gift" to my children and grandchildren. If I fail in my stewardship of this "Gift", I believe my ticket on the Gospel ship may be canceled.

    Better that I perish in the cause of Liberty that my soul be preserved.

    mass media and public education are the two big problems.

    the tv is a brain washing tool.

    And yet the truth still is getting out.
