Libertarian is Spiritual
All of Nature is self-governing. To think we are some how separate from it because of a certain belief-system is just proving our ego ass is larger than your brain mass .... unless of course you're running for a prestigious office hell-bent on control or wanting to fill collection plates. Then it's cool and edible. Carry on, my son.
Mrs. Earth has been taking care of herself for a lot longer .... long before we fell out of the tree. And her Son (or Sun) of our being is naturally oblivious of our political afflictions, our religious groups we put ourselves through, or our names and labels we anoint ourselves with. Our Spirits have their own "organization" to busy themselves with, in their own church of Space.
Earth to Sun, with cousin Moon: "I've seen quite enough of them today," and is entertaining other options. "Lets see, how about a rain medley with a crescendo of lighting percussion to drop their socks and cell phones. Like snow to drift over your monuments, but then it may seem too greeting-card pretty and they might get the wrong idea and start to wrap up and hand out gifts for some godly reason. I know I know, here's a nice memorable volcanic eruption, we gave Pompeii, to show em who's really the boss of this pin-ball machine they call a Galaxy .... one of countless many!"
"I’ve often said that I think that we’re all born libertarians. And people ask me when did you become a libertarian? I said as long as I can remember. Except I went through many, many years of having it beaten out of me by the status quo." -Ron Paul
Why shouldn't self-governing mean everything? Don't you deserve it?
Big gov, big pharma, big Wally World, big doctor complex, big prison complex, big war complex and such we don't know yet, all got the idea from big religion. From the mob of all religions: Catholicism. And all continue to survive and prosper to the max because we have separated ourselves from our self-governing-Spirit we were born with .... with the help of big media to push and repeat the agenda to us like a mantra. We not only bought it and swallowed it, and continue to do so, we pass it on to our precious children for them to do to theirs. Like it's the right thing to do. All under the guise of entertainment.
How dare us blasphem-ize our creator given Spirit of the self. Of All That Is. Dumb-down our-self. Telling ourselves we are unworthy of our own thoughts. That somebody or something else is more important than what we were born with. That you need to be born again because Who did it the first time didn't know what the hell they were doing. That you need another person to take care of your health and that your immune system doesn't work. That you need somebody to tell you how to work, to live, to feel, to react, and how to vote. Who to love. Who to hate and who to kill. How dare us!
We've played second fiddle with ourselves for so long we believe we can hardly play anymore without an accompaniment. We can't even be with ourselves for very long before we have to get out and run. We believe that going out and buying something or being with a certain person or a group of people is the root of all happiness. We believe that wearing something or not wearing something, long or short hair or cut a certain way, prayer cap or not, driving a car or a buggy, praying or not, going to church or not, marring or not, smoking something or not, eating something or not, listening to a certain music or not .... is how to really live our life.
If we truly believe that we are created in our God's image then why do we doubt ourselves? Why do we lie to our spirit-selves? It's no wonder we have to go to our church every Sunday for a reminder. Why we have to go to our doctor for a check-up every year, or run to them when any little ailment arises. Why we are always disgusted with who our votes gave us. Then we "get off" on criticizing, condemning and complaining while our country suffers. While our body suffers. While our Spirit suffers.
Yes Ron, we are born libertarian, but until we vote the way of our self governing spirit, instead of the status quo, we'll have to wait to die to get back 'home' to it.
Well, maybe not. More and more people are seeing there own sinful laziness to 'Themselves' and the errors of their history and catching the light in their own eyes, instead of loosing their self governing spirit to some fabricated institution's profit margins.
Tenalach (Irish) - Used to describe the relationship one has with the land, air and water, a deep connection that allows one to literally hear the Earth sing.

from Facebook:Bruce Fenton
The pledge of allegiance was written by a socialist as propaganda.
Unsurprisingly we have today a situation where if you refuse to stand and pledge "allegiance" to a piece of cloth, a State official will berate you, treat you like a child and when that doesn't work he will have an armed officer force you to leave.
If that doesn't work the officer will tase, mace, imprison or shoot you.
We call this freedom.
....or you could be an 'Old Soul'
9 Signs You’re An Old Soul
#1. You tend to be a solitary loner.
Because old souls are disinterested in the pursuits and interests of the people in their age groups, they find it dissatisfying to make friends with people they find it hard to relate to. This is one of the major problems Old Souls experience. The result is … old souls tend to find themselves alone a lot of the time. People just don’t cut it for them.
#2. You love knowledge, wisdom and truth.
Yep … this seems a little grandiose and overly noble, but the old soul finds himself naturally gravitating towards the intellectual side of life. Old souls inherently understand that knowledge is power, wisdom is happiness and truth is freedom, so why not seek after those things? These pursuits are more meaningful to them than reading up on the latest gossip about Snooki’s latest boyfriend, or the latest football scores.
#3. You’re spiritually inclined.
More emotional old souls tend to have sensitive and spiritual natures. Overcoming the confines of the ego, seeking enlightenment and fostering love and peace are the main pursuits of these young-in-body Mother Teresa’s. To them it seems the wisest, most fulfilling use of time.
#4. You understand the transience of life.
Old souls are frequently plagued with reminders of not only their own mortality, but that of everything and everyone around them. This makes the old soul wary and at times withdrawn, but wisely dictates the way they live their lives.
#5. You’re thoughtful and introspective.
Old souls tend to think a lot … about everything. Their ability to reflect and learn from their actions and those of others is their greatest teacher in life. One reason why old souls feel so old at heart is because they have learnt so many lessons through their own thought processes, and possess so much insight into life situations from their ability to quietly and carefully observe what if going on around them.
#6. You see the bigger picture.
Rarely do old souls get lost in the superficial details of getting useless degrees, job promotions, boob jobs and bigger TV’s. Old souls have the tendency to look at life from a birds eye view, seeing what is the most wise and meaningful way to approach life. When confronted with issues, old souls tend to see them as temporary and passing pains that merely serve to increase the amount of joy felt in the future. Consequently, old souls tend to have placid, stable natures as a result of their approach to life.
#7. You aren’t materialistic.
Wealth, status, fame, and the latest version of iPhone … they just bore old souls. The old soul doesn’t see the purpose of pursuing things that can be easily taken away from them. Additionally, old souls have little time and interest for the short-lived things in life, as they bring little meaning or long lasting fulfillment for them.
#8. You were a strange, socially maladaptive kid.
This is not always the case, but many old souls exhibit odd signs of maturity at young ages. Often, these children are labelled as being “precocious”, “introverted”, or “rebellious“, failing to fit into the mainstream behaviors. Usually, these children are extremely inquisitive and intelligent, seeing the purposelessness of many things their teachers, parents and peers say and do, and either passively or aggressively resisting them. If you can talk to your child like he/she’s an adult – you’ve probably got an old soul on your hands.
#9. You just “feel” old.
Before putting a name to what I felt, I experienced certain sensations of simply being an “old person” inside. The feelings that accompany being an old soul are usually: a feeling of world wariness, mental tiredness, watchful patience, and detached calmness. Unfortunately, this can often be perceived as being aloof and cold, which is only one of many Old Soul Myths.
Just as some old people describe themselves as being “young at heart”, so too can young people be “old at heart”.
