I’m Proud Of How God Made Me, White

Is Nancy Pelosi ashamed to be white?  Where did she learn NOT to be racist?  Are all white’s racists or just the Trump voters?  How do you identify a racist, or does that just come as an add-on to the whole skin color thingee?  Did you know that the word “racist” didn’t even exist in 1828?  Check it out here.  A totally made up word invented by the communists in the 1930’s to foster division in America.

Once upon a time, when I still answered to “Gunny,” I had a “race” problem in my Company. The dark green Marines complained to me that the light green Marines would not pull liberty

with them and, therefore, they were “racists.”

After a thorough (Gunny Style) questioning of both sides, I got to the bottom of the thing. The light green Marines preferred country music and were repulsed by “rap.” And, of course, the dark green Marines were the flip side of that.

They still didn’t pull liberty together. The freedom of association has a corollary. The freedom to NOT associate for whatever reason. And that is OK. At least they understood each other’s reason why. — jtl, 419

Some of you think it is racist for me to say that.  You have been brainwashed.

Am I permitted to be proud of my heritage?  Should I cower in fear of the race-baiters being triggered by my so nonpolitically correct statement?

Should I be ashamed of my ethnicity?  Would America be a better place if all of the “pale faces” simply retreated inside of our log cabins and stroked our coon-skinned caps?  Would America be a better place without “whitey?”

Perhaps I am wrong but it seems like every other ethnic group is encouraged to proudly parade their birth suit and the wonderful heritage that their skin represents.

But I am more than skin.  A lot more.  And as much as it might make the skin-color counters nervous I am far more influenced by my Christianity than I am the color of my skin. Although my heritage is one of White Anglo Saxon Protestant, (something we used to call a WASP), my heritage is one of Catholicism, a “religion” that my parents picked for me.  I no longer follow the edicts of “The Church”, but have moved on to one of the Heinz 57 brands of what some folks refer to as Christianity.

I am a Christian today by choice.  I am a Caucasian by birth.  I know many Christians who are not white and I know many whites who are not Christians.  To simply throw all of us into the same bucket of fish because we all happen to be the same color is just as foolish as assuming that sharks and blue gills have a great deal in common.

I’ll happily swim in a lake full of blue gills, but will give a great deal of thought before skinny dipping in shark infested waters.  Not all fish are the same and not all white boys are the same either.

Did I tell you that I am proud to be white?

Not prouder than a black guy is to be black.  Not prouder than an Hispanic is to be Hispanic. And certainly not prouder than an Asian is to be Asian.

But I am not ashamed of it either.

Have you ever noticed that many of those who are throwing around the label “racist” happen to have the same color of skin that I have?  Last I checked, Nancy Pelosi was white, as is Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, and most of the candidates running for the Democratic nomination.  Since they are the ones who are always barking about racism why doesn’t anyone ever accuse them of being racist?

Is Nancy Pelosi ashamed to be white?  Where did she learn NOT to be racist?  Are all white’s racists or just the Trump voters?  How do you identify a racist, or does that just come as an add-on to the whole skin color thingee?  Did you know that the word “racist” didn’t even exist in 1828?  Check it out here.  A totally made up word invented by the communists in the 1930’s to foster division in America.

Dr. King famously asked Americans to stop judging by skin color but by the content of one’s character.  You’d be surprised how wrong you would be about someone if you simply judged them by how they looked.  Bill Cosby seemed like a good guy, as did Jeffrey Epstein.  Just ask the Clintons.  You would be making a big mistake if you judged either one by their birthday suit.

I found out recently that my family heritage has a lineage back to a group of Americans called Melungeons.  You can read about them here.  My ancestors were a mixture of European, African, and Native American.  But today people just call me and my family “white.”  It is easier to label me a racist that way.

Like I said.  Some fish are blue gills and some fish are sharks.  It is dangerous to judge a book by its color…the same goes for people.

I think Nancy Pelosi is evil.  Not because of the color of her skin, but because of the content of her character.  I think Ben Carson is a wonderful man for the same reasons.

My wife and I raised three children…I think my wife was a Melungeon as well…at least in part.  In our house we never called people nigger, spic, wetback, coon, hunky, whop, chinc, or dago.  We taught our children that all people were created in the image of God.  Blue gills and sharks…but fish nonetheless.

Bottom line?  Your skin-suits are simply containers in which the real you rides around in.  Your skin color has nothing to do with what kind of person you become.  Our grandchildren have some black friends.  We have nieces and nephews who have an Asian mother.  I don’t think our grandchildren even realize that their cousins and friends do not look like WASP’s.  Somebody has to point that out to them

That is what the race baiters do. They point out differences. They divide and conquer. They impugn the content of one’s character simply by association with the color of one’s skin.  They make white children ashamed to be white.

In America every skin color is honored except for white and every religion except Christian. Well, it doesn’t work in my house and it shouldn’t work in yours. I say a pox upon the house of all race baiters.

Just one small thing?  Do Melungeons qualify for minority status?  Did my kids miss out on some affirmative action?  Is there a way I can collect on my obvious birth defect?  Is there some government agency that will help me get money out of your pocket?  The Melungeon life was a hard life!

I’m proud to be white.  Don’t blame me.  I was born this way.

Agriculture Is Only a Tiny Part of America’s Economy — And That’s a Good Thing

There are more people working for the USDA than there people engaged in production agriculture.

In fact, there is an old joke about an employee at the Department of Agriculture. It seems that his co-workers found him first thing in the morning, sitting at his desk and crying like a baby. They finally got him calmed down enough to find out what was wrong. Punctuated by great “sniffs,” he managed to get it out–“My farmer died.”

Land & Livestock International, Inc.

Logic would suggest that the USDA and its subordinate agencies are laying off employees and reducing their size and scope in response to the decline of America’s beloved industry.

Yes, White Men Built America. It’s A Fact

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)And when the genocide is played out, the rest of the world will go back to digging tubers out of the ground with a pointed stick. — jtl, 419
Ron Ewart via News With Views

  obvious reasons, we purposely preface this article with the following statement:  “In our articles, we don’t pull any punches and never will.  We write what many others are afraid to write.  We say what others don’t have the courage to say, in a climate of fear that has made The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) For“politically correct” a retreat for cowards.  In the end, it is up to the reader to determine for him or herself whether we have the best interests of a free America and the individual rights of all Americans, at heart.  Each reader of what we write has the option to accept or reject our arguments, premises, or opinions.  It is their right to make that judgment but it is not up to us to care one way or another, which way they decide.  Because, in a free society, it is the fearless expression of ideas, whether benign or controversial, that stirs the pot of free thought and gives it life, as well as advancing the principles of liberty.  If the reader is offended by what we write, it is their issue to resolve, not ours.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)The Renaissance was a period of enlightenment in Europe’s rise out of the stagnant dark ages.  It occurred from the 14th through the 17th Centuries and was punctuated by (mostly white) European men of vision, insight and intellect in the fields of classical philosophy, science, literature and art.   Great statesmen, thinkers, scientists and artists built upon the accomplishments of those that went before, with thoughts, ideas, discoveries, inventions and new techniques, each one building upon the last.  Isaac Newton’s genius, or so he said, was enhanced by his being able to stand on the shoulders of the giants that preceded him.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View Out of the Renaissance came the subject of humanism that prescribed certain natural rights to every individual.  John Locke, English philosopher and physician, (1632 – 1704) was regarded as one of the most revered Enlightenment thinkers of the time on the subject of natural human rights and freedom.  The all-White Founding Fathers were influenced and guided by many of Locke’s writings that gave birth to the Declaration of Independence and the U. S. Constitution.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute During the Renaissance, global exploration exploded across the lands and the seas separating the seven continents.   In the 15th Century mostly White men like Columbus, Magellan, De Gama, Drake, Raleigh, Cortes and Cabot sailed to the new worlds around the globe and opened up trading routes throughout the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans.  In the process they discovered new, untapped wilderness, with protected seaports, rich in timber, minerals, water and fertile fields to grow crops and raise livestock.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits The pathways these fearless sailors explored opened the door to mass migration from Europe to America, some fleeing religious persecution and stodgy, rigid kings, others pursuing the promise of true freedom and free land for the taking.  These White men and women of the new America, that designed and delivered to the masses human freedom out of human bondage, were born from the fertile loins of the White European Renaissance.

Combat Shooter's HandbookThe pillars of this new freedom came from the basic human concepts and truisms contained in the great Catholic, Protestant and Jewish religions.  Contrary to the consummate apologist, former President Barack Obama, at no time were the tenets of Islam ever considered in the formation of the American free society.

For 10,000 years American Indian tribes roamed North America and did not bring one ounce of civilization to the land between the two great A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manualoceans.  They lived off the land in a nomadic lifestyle, warring with neighboring tribes.  The Blacks, Asians and Latinos did not bring civilization to America.  The fact is, European White men and women brought civilization to America and divided the nation into 50 somewhat autonomous free states having a Republican form of government, a process to govern humans based on the inviolate principles of God-given freedom and unalienable rights.

But European civilization was well over a thousand years old before the beginning of migration to America.  However, Native Indians and Black Americans were products of a tribal culture on the African and North American continents.  The introduction to European civilization and American freedom were troubling to them and difficult to comprehend, in contrast to their previous aborigine lifestyle.   They have been slow to adapt.

Nevertheless, this new freedom was the creation of mostly (if not entirely) White men of European descent.  There were no Blacks, Latinos, Asians, or American Indians sitting in on the Constitutional Convention (1787 – 1789).  All of the 74 delegates to the Convention were chosen by the thirteen state legislatures, state legislatures also wholly occupied by White men.  Most, if not all, of the men fighting the Revolutionary War under General Washington that won your freedom by force and at great sacrifice, were white.

By the mid 1800’s a good portion of the Atlantic seaboard had been settled by White Europeans.  To escape the overcrowding of the big cities, the people looked west into the untamed lands of the Great Plains, the magnificent Rocky Mountains, the Southwestern deserts and on to the shores of the Pacific Ocean.

White men designed, funded and built the railroads and telegraph lines (telegraph – invented by Samuel Morse, a White man) that provided freedom of movement and communication corridors to open up the new land.  Much of the labor to build the railroads came from White settlers.  Yes, some blacks and Asians were part of the railroad workforce.

The cotton gin was invented by Eli Whitney, and revolutionized the harvesting of cotton.  Whitney was a White man.

The steel to build the railroads was smelted in the crucibles created, designed and funded by White men (Carnegie).  White men gave us electricity (Tesla) to power our machines and the light bulb (Edison) to light our homes.

A White man (Col Edwin Drake) drilled the first successful oil well in Pennsylvania.  John D. Rockefeller, a White man, exploded the refining of crude oil into gasoline for our cars and hundreds of other products that have given Americans a standard of living unequaled in even the civilized world.

None of this was possible without money.  J. P. Morgan, a White man, not only developed the banking industry but was a power player in the railroad industry and ultimately the distribution of electricity to homes, businesses and factories.  (General Electric – founded in 1889)

All of our Presidents, up until Obama, were White men.  It was a testament to the individual freedom designed and created by White men that allowed Obama to be elected president.  It was a majority of White men and women that voted Obama into office.  Without the white vote, Obama would have lost miserably.

To sum it up, we are tired of hearing about White privilege.   We’re tired of being called racists just because we are White.  We’re tired of hearing about certain ethnic groups being victims of White dominance.  We are incensed about government mandating affirmative action and considering reparations for black Americans.  The civil war was over 150 years ago.  The playfield is now even and ethnic races should quit making excuses about their inability to compete with other races, such that government has to step in and “make them equal” by force of law, or taxpayer extortion.

When will Blacks stop blaming contemporary White Americans for the sins of White ancestors?  When will Blacks stop trying to erase American history because White European descendants dominated that history?  When will Blacks quit whining about how bad they have it and adopt the characteristics and attributes that allowed White men and women to build the most powerful, productive and generous nation on earth.

Blacks and their acolytes are forcing the removal of historical statues and art with the goal of erasing all of American White history.  Who gave them that right?  The current year is 2019 not 1865.

The civil war is over.  But that doesn’t seem to make any difference.  Anything of White America that offends a Black person in any manner, including a mural of George Washington in a San Francisco high school, must be blotted out and erased from memory, aided and abetted by a pandering liberal government.

No, White men and women aren’t perfect.  The freedom created by the Founding Fathers was not perfect, since perfect can never be defined.  Yes, many of the things that White men did in the building of America were blatantly wrong.  Slavery was and is wrong.  Reconstruction was wrong.  The Supreme Court decision of “equal but separate” was wrong.  But justice over time has righted these wrongs.

The abusive treatment and the breaking of treaties with Native Americans were wrong.  The “Trail of Tears” was wrong.  The incarceration of Japanese Americans in internment camps during World War II was wrong.  So too is allowing an illegal invasion of America by millions of non-English speaking foreign nationals.  Providing welfare and health care to illegal aliens, paid for by legal Americans, is wrong as well.

But then the Black race, or any race for that matter, is far from perfect.  The Black inner cities are a picture in fatherless violence, chaos, anarchy and government dependence.   The Black Lives Matter group is a group that preaches anarchy, but even worse, is funded with millions of dollars from wealthy liberals.  Why can’t the Black race get their act together and come out of the ancient shadows of government-manufactured victim-hood?  When will they finally learn that they can compete, even in a White world?  Many well-known Black people rose above White discrimination and became successful in their own right.  Must we name names?

Discrimination is a fact of life on every continent, except maybe Antarctica.  You want to see discrimination in action, visit Japan, Korea, Vietnam, or China.  Looking out across the crowd you will be hard pressed to find a blond, blue-eyed Caucasian, much less an African-American.  The heads are all adorned with black hair and they take great exception to the mixing of the races.

Keep in mind that you hardly ever hear a peep out of Asian Americans and yet they were also horribly mistreated and exploited during the building of the railroads and were eventually banned from entering America by the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882.  Even today Asians suffer significant discrimination but they remain quiet.  In contrast to a large majority of the Black race, Asian families are strong and disciplined.  Education is paramount.  They listen, learn, compete and produce, mostly in silence.

All races in America, in a multi-cultural society, owe their very freedom to the insights, intellect and courage of the first White men and women that braved the high seas to settle in a new and wild land.  By main strength and awkwardness, they carved out an existence in a hostile environment and tamed the wilderness.  This does not mean that Whites are superior to any other race.  They have just accomplished more because there were more of them.

Some ordinary White men, with vision and the wisdom of age and experience in a time of turmoil and confusion, gathered together on the distant shores of a new land and laid down a “blue print” for free men and women with common purpose and resolve to live out their lives and govern their individual and collective affairs by adhering to that “blue print.”  The guidance of that “blue print”, through 240 years of significant change, allowed a free society to pioneer, grow and prosper into the strongest nation in all of recorded human history.

But now that “blue print” is in serious danger of dissolving.  Evil men and women, in their relentless pursuit of power, many of them white, have set about to divide our multi-cultural population over race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and the wealth gap.  Instead of being Americans united in a common purpose, we fight with each other while the government exploits our differences for their own ends.

Hopefully, in the very near future, for the sake of freedom, we will learn that the domestic enemies of our freedom are those that allegedly “represent” (or is it rule) us.  Our once free Constitutional Republic has now morphed into a mob-rule Democracy and “we the people” let it happen.  It could be a bloody fight of significant magnitude to reclaim freedom again.  Nevertheless, there is still time to “Save the USA“, but are there any Americans up to the task?

What we have presented here are indisputable facts, not opinion.  Nor are they to be construed as politically motivated.  The content is based on objective observations and historical perspectives of past and current events.  How many of you have wanted to share these same thoughts, but we’re afraid to utter them for fear of reprisal?  We’ve said them for you.

Reparations for Slavery

Slavery was a gross violation of human rights. Justice demands that all participants in the trans-Atlantic slave trade make compensatory reparation payments to slaves.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsThat is a debt that has been paid-in-full for a long, long time.

It has been said that Dishonest Abe freed the slaves and enslaved the freemen. And that is the truth. Consider the question:

What is the difference in a country where half of its population are slaves and a country where all of its population are half-slaves.

Over our lifetimes we will have had (a minimum of) half of the fruits of our labor confiscated by our slave masters. Taxes are robbery. Taxes are slavery. — jtl, 419

By Walter E. Williams on LewRockwell.com

Combat Shooter's Handbook  Several Democratic presidential hopefuls are calling for Americans to make reparations for slavery. On June 19, the House judiciary subcommittee on the constitution, civil rights and civil liberties held a hearing. Its stated purpose was “to examine, through open and constructive discourse, the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, its continuing impact on the community and the path to restorative justice.”

Slavery was a gross violation of human rights. Justice demands that all participants in the trans-Atlantic slave trade make compensatory reparation payments to slaves. However, there is no way that Europeans could have captured millions of Africans. That means compensation would have to be paid by Africans and Arabs who captured and sold slaves to Europeans in addition to the people who bought and used slaves. Since slaves and slave traders and owners are no longer with us, compensation is beyond our reach and it’s a matter that will have to be settled in hell or heaven.

American Contempt for … Walter E. Williams Best Price: $9.15 Buy New $11.44 (as of 08:50 EDT – Details)

Let’s pretend for a moment that the reparations issue makes a modicum of sense. There’s the question of responsibility. More explicitly, should we compensate a black person of today by punishing a white person of today, by taking his money, for what a white person of yesteryear did to a black person of yesteryear? If we believe in individual accountability, we should find that doing so is unjust. In other words, are the tens millions of Europeans, Asian and Latin Americans who immigrated to the U.S. in the late 19th and 20th centuries responsible for slavery, and should they be forced to cough up reparations? What about descendants of Northern whites who fought and died in the name of freeing slaves? Should they pay reparations to black Americans? What about non-slave-owning Southern whites — who were a majority of Southern whites — should their descendants be made to pay reparations?

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteReparations advocates make the unchallenged pronouncement that United States became rich on the backs of free black labor. That’s utter nonsense. While some slave owners became rich, slavery doesn’t have a good record of producing wealth. Slavery existed in the southern states and outlawed in most of the northern states. Buying into the reparations argument suggests that the antebellum South was rich and the slave-starved North was poor. The truth is just the opposite. In fact, the poorest states and regions of our country were places where slavery flourished: Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. And the richest states and regions were those where slavery was absent: Pennsylvania, New York and Massachusetts.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)  The reparations movement would be an amusing sideshow were it not for its damaging distractions. It grossly misallocates resources that could be better spent elsewhere. According to the state Department of Education, 75% of black California boys cannot meet state reading standards. In 2016, in 13 of Baltimore’s 39 high schools, not a single student scored proficient on the state’s mathematics exam. In six other high schools, only 1% tested proficient in math. The same story of low education outcomes can be told about most cities with large black populations. I’d like to see lawyers bring class-action suits against public school systems in cities like Philadelphia, Baltimore, A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewWashington, Detroit and Los Angeles for conferring fraudulent high school diplomas. Such diplomas attest a 12th-grade level of academic achievement when in fact those youngsters often cannot perform at sixth- or seventh-grade levels.

The nation’s most dangerous big cities are Detroit, Oakland, St. Louis, Memphis, Stockton, Birmingham, Baltimore, Cleveland, Atlanta, Chicago and Milwaukee. The common characteristic of most of these cities is that they have predominantly black populations and blacks have considerable political power as mayors, city councilmen and chiefs of police. Energy spent on reparations should be used to solve those problems.

As of 2014, U.S. taxpayers have spent $22 trillion on Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty (in constant 2012 dollars). Adjusting for inflation, that’s three times more than was spent on all military wars since the American Revolution. If money alone were the answer, the many issues facing a large segment of the black community would have been solved.

There’s another possible reparations issue completely ignored: Blacks as well as whites live on land taken, sometimes brutally, from American Indians. Do blacks and whites owe American Indians anything?

Conservatives Against Liberty

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits   Individual Liberties vs. Economic Liberties

First, the short version.

Liberties (Freedoms) can be placed into two distinct forms. Economic Liberties = How we choose to spend our money, and Individual Liberties = How we choose to live our lives.

Combat Shooter's Handbook The Left (Libtards) are the tax and spend crowd that believes they know better than we do about how we should spend our money. In the meantime, they don’t give two hoots in hell about our morality–running naked in the streets is fine with most of them. 

On the other hand, the Right (Republicrats) think we are pretty good with Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Instituteour own money. In contrast, they believe we are a bunch of natural born sinners that have to have our morals legislated for us. And, they are all in favor of starting endless, win less wars all over the world.

Libertarians believe in both economic and individual freedom. — jtl, 419

By Ron Paul via LewRockwell.com

 

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewRecently several prominent social and populist conservatives have attacked libertarianism. These conservatives, some of whom are allies in the fight against our hyper-interventionist foreign policy, blame libertarianism for a variety of social and economic ills. The conservative attack on libertarianism — like the attack on the freedom philosophy launched by leftists — is rooted in factual, economic, and philosophical errors.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)  The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)  The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3) Libertarianism’s right-wing critics claim libertarianism is the dominant ideology of the Republican establishment. This is an odd claim since the Republican leadership embraces anti-libertarian policies like endless wars, restrictions on civil liberties, government interference in our personal lives, and massive spending increases on welfare as well as warfare.

Anti-libertarian conservatives confuse libertarianism with the authoritarian “neoliberalism” embraced by both major parties. This confusion may be why these conservatives blame libertarians for the American middle class’s eroding standard of living. Conservatives are correct to be concerned about the economic challenges facing the average American, but they are mistaken to place the blame on the free market.

The American people are not suffering from an excess of free markets. They suffer from an excess of taxes, regulations, and, especially, fiat money. Therefore, populist conservatives should join libertarians in seeking to eliminate federal regulations, repeal the 16th Amendment, and restore a free-market monetary system.

Instead of fighting to end the welfare-regulatory system that benefits economic and political elites at the expense of average Americans, populist conservatives are promoting increased economic interventionism. For example, many populist conservatives support increased infrastructure spending and tariffs and other forms of protectionism.

Like all forms of central planning, these schemes prevent goods and services from being used for the purposes most valued by consumers. This distorts the marketplace and lowers living standards — including of people whose jobs are temporally saved or created by these government interventions. Those workers would be better off in the long term finding new jobs in a free market.

Anti-free-market conservatives ignore how their policies harm those they claim to care about. For example, protectionism harms farmers and others working in businesses depending on international trade.

The most common complaint of social conservatives is that libertarianism promotes immorality. These conservatives confuse a libertarian’s opposition to outlawing drugs, for example, with moral approval of drug use. Many libertarians condemn drug use and other destructive behaviors. However, libertarians reject the use of government force to prevent individuals from choosing to engage in these behaviors. Instead, libertarians support the right of individuals to use peaceful means to persuade others not to engage in destructive or immoral behaviors.

Libertarians also support the right of individuals not to associate with, or to subsidize in any way, those whose lifestyles or beliefs they find objectionable. Social conservatives object to libertarians because social conservatives wish to use government power to force people to be good. This is the worst type of statism because it seeks to control our minds and souls.

Most people accept the idea that it is wrong to initiate force against those engaging in peaceful behaviors. Libertarians apply this nonaggression principle to government. Making government follow the nonaggression principle would end unjust wars, income and inflation taxes, and the destruction caused by the use of force to control what we do with our property, how we raise our children, who we associate with, and what we put into our bodies. Making governments abide by the nonaggression principle is the only way to restore a society that is free, prosperous, and moral.

Farm Subsidies Are Corporate Welfare — And They Cost Us Plenty

Looks like New Zealand is running circles around the old uSSA in several departments. Somebody needs to tell Trump to take a little “fact finding” tour of NZ.
Indeed, American agriculture is the largest welfare recipient on earth. Gladly, the beef cattle industry is not as dependent as farming but there are a few exceptions. –food stamps, for example. Welfare for Cowboys.

The idea of eliminating agriculture subsidies has already been tested in New Zealand. In 1985, it eliminated all its subsidies and removed trade barriers. Since then, its farmers have flourished, with productivity improving dramatically.

The federal government spends more than $20 billion a year on subsidies for farm businesses. About 39 percent of the nation’s 2.1 million farms receive subsidies, with the lion’s share of the handouts going to the largest producers of corn, soybeans, wheat, cotton, and rice.
