The Oligarchs Want To Go to LRC's Funeral

For almost
12 years now, LRC has been on the hate parade of the plutocrats,
the neocons, the fascists. All those who glorify war, redistribution,
empire, corporatism, and state security, who seek to live — and
very well indeed — off their depredations, chew the rug when they
read this site.

So, given
this, and the stunning power imbalance, why can't they crush LRC?
What Mises said really is true: ideas are more powerful than governments.
Ideas are more powerful than smear artists and paid think tanks,
shill media and hate-filled oil barons. Our ideas can confound
their knavish tricks, eat away at their lies, reveal the imperial
nakedness.

As Rothbard
shows, the State — as impregnable as it looks — depends on the
consent of the governed. The parasites are few, their victims
legion. If we withdraw our consent, even the KGB collapses. See,
for example, the TSA revolt last fall, which LRC led. As long
as we were saying No, the massed power of 50,000 blue shirts was
foiled. We made them back down, and rope off their dangerous x-ray
machines at many airports, stop their feel-ups. Of course, the
Transportation SA will start up again in 2011, but LRC will be
there to give Janet Napolitano another hotfoot, if you make it
possible.

In 2011,
LRC has much work to do. After all, we helped give Ron Paul his
internet presence, from the beginning of the site. When he decided
to run for president, LRC announced it, and spread the Ron Paul
news during the entire campaign. This year, whether Ron decides
to run again, or to focus on ending the Fed, the business cycle,
and fractional-reserve banksterism, through his subcommittee chairmanship,
LRC will be at his side.

This site
is a mighty ally. The millions of Americans dedicated to freedom
and peace, prosperity and civil liberties, true history and real
economics, are the LRC constituency. They are joined by their
compadres the world over. LRC's influence is huge. Not only that,
but we are constantly expanding our movement. Young people, and
people of all ages, are moving from neocon to libertarian to anarcho-capitalist.
Others are awaking, for the first time, to what is being done
to us. It's why even Soros and Koch worry.

"You
know what I find amazing?" said our bookkeeper. "You
outcompete sites with budgets that are 10, 20, 50 times bigger."
We can do it, I told her, because we all love liberty, and have
so much darn fun too.

"You
can't pay the bills with fun," she said. True enough.

Would
you help us start off 2011 in sound shape
, ready to finish
our new content management system, and Icelandic and Panamanian
locations, site redesign and many other plans? We are, thanks
to our donors, and some very giving high-tech people, too, ready
to go to work with a bang, and at a far higher and more sophisticated
level. But
we need to raise $67,000
before the end of the year, to allow
us to really buckle down. Thanks to good donors, we have already
cut more than $7,000 off that figure. But we still need $59,700.
Won't you help
with your most generous gift?

Ron Paul,
Murray Rothbard, the Pentagon, the CIA, Austrian economics, the
TSA, honest money, honest banking, wars, the police state, private
property, private money, liberty, the government gang of thieves.
We have so much to fight for, and against, if you can help us
be a tsunami of freedom. We have a teaching mission that works.
Help us turn it on high. Help us give heart to all the good people
whose friends do not understand, and educate those friends too.
Help us expand our movement, and hit the opposition like a tsunami.
Help us
make 2011 an historic year for all we believe in.

Our enemies
fear us. Like the Orcs of Mordor, they know they are wrong, even
if they revel in evil. They may fight for the ring of power; we
refuse it. Throughout all of human history, there has been a battle
between power and market. That battle continues. But for perhaps
the first time, we now have a host of teachers and fighters who
will not be fooled, who will not be downhearted, who will not
be turned back. Join
that vanguard with your donation
. Join us in the great battle
of our epoch.
