Charles Edward Montague Quote

“A lie will easily get you out of a scrape, and yet, strangely and beautifully, rapture possesses you when you have taken the scrape and left out the lie.”

~ Charles Edward Montague

A whole lot of truth there. It is a shame, and to We The People's detriment, that those who have replaced the once free individual sovereign's representatives (with priestly patrons of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land) will not avail themselves of such a strange and beautiful rapture.

Beautiful. The real issue in America is not our corrupt government, it is the lack of honor and integrity of the American people. When we can start facing hard truths, we can begin to face hard 'scrapes' which are better than postponing an inevitable bigger scrape. Let the debt bomb blow -- no more borrowing, no more interest payments -- just stop it right now and let the chips fall where they may. We will not only survive and pull through this, we will prosper like never before without a needle in our arm. Everything we produce now goes to pay the interest on our ever-growing debt. Enough.
