Nice!
And people wonder why me and Lord T Hawkeye call statism a "religion":  it's just trading one infallible authority for another.

And of course, you, me and others already call it "The Cult of the Omnipotent State".  The reason?  Because the glove fits.

"A text itself is neither worthless nor worth a lot. What makes any text--including our constitution--be worthwhile is how well the people keep to it. The reason why we still (for the most part) have free speech in this country is not because of ink on parchment; it's because people have been willing to step forward and defend the concept." -ShaneDK on his latest constitution video.

"*beep*

WRONG! The reason why you still have some free speech is because the central hub of organi[z]ed crime and mob rule known as the state wants people to be be free to some extent because it makes people more productive and serves the state better!"--rebel1q in response to the above.

"Here's the first rule of bullshit: If somebody says 'There ought to be a law...', there probably oughtn't."
--Penn Jillette, from the Endangered Species episode of Penn & Teller: Bullshit!

"My dear, there are two rules of skepticism:  1) If someone says, 'there ought to be a law,' then there probably shouldn't be.  2)  There are no sacred cows."--Me, modifying Penn's 'rule of skepticism'.  Boldface added for emphasis.

Maybe no sacred cows but can we agree that there's some choice ass?

To all the people (including MisterBusta) who say, "Morality comes from God.":

It's mended, not ment. And yes, I did. By the way, duct tape was a poor choice. Should've just replaced it.

"And with what cost does he purchase this increased threat of crime and violence? The sacrifice of his own liberty. For all of mankind’s experience speaks to the fact that by far the single most common aggressor against the rights of mankind is, and always will be, states. In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson expressed the concept that states exist for the purpose of securing our rights. Yet, what a misguided notion! To see how misguided this notion is, one merely needs to read the so-called Bill of Rights to the Constitution. This document attempts to secure for all Americans the rights to freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom of the press, freedom to peaceably assemble, freedom to bear arms, security against having the military quartered in my home, security against unreasonable searches and seizures, and security against unfair judicial proceedings. But who is it that threatens these rights if it is not states? The argument is, therefore, circular: I need a state to secure my rights, which rights are only threatened by states." --Caleb Johnson
