I may not really believe it is correct in the current political circumstance, but I am certainly going to practice it in the future. Voting for the lesser of two evils may have gotten me less evil, but it is still evil. Perhaps we need a lot of evil before people will wake up to the effects of the nanny state. Atlas is Shrugging.

The current system is rigged against principle. Pragmatism rules; however, if you vote your conscience at least you can look yourself in the mirror. May the new Boston Tea Party come soon.

And remember, voting is not just done at the ballot box -- it is done with one's wallet and with one's labors. Take a stand!

He who is unable to live in society, or who has no need because he is sufficient for himself, must be either a beast or a god

This quote was introduced to us by a great history teacher. "As long as you stand for what is right, your soul will forever live amongst the stars"

In the de jure States united, a major caveat to the quote would be, principle based on "the laws of nature and of nature's God" (Declaration of Independence)
