This Is What We Are For, This Is What We Are Against

For almost
12 years now, LRC has been on the hate parade of the plutocrats,
the neocons, the banksters, the fascists. Those who glorify war,
redistribution, empire, corporatism, and the police state, who
live off their depredations, chew the rug when they read this
site.

Given the
stunning power imbalance, why can't they just 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 and financial barons. Our ideas
can confound their knavish tricks, reveal their lies, show up
their imperial nakedness.

As Rothbard
shows, the State — as impregnable as it seems — depends on the
consent of the governed. The parasites are few, the victims legion.
If we withdraw our consent from the State, even the KGB collapses.
See, for example, the anti-TSA revolution last fall, which LRC
led. As long as we were saying No, the massed power of 50,000
blue shirts was foiled. We actually made them back down, and rope
off many of their dangerous x-ray machines, and stop some of 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 a host
of compadres the world over. LRC's influence is huge. Not only
that, but we are constantly expanding our movement. Students,
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, the
anti-Ron Paul duo, worry so.

I want to
make them really worry. Would
you help us start off 2011 in top shape
? We need to raise
$67,000 to allow us to really buckle down for 2011.

Think of
what we stand for: Ron Paul, Rothbard, Mises, Austrian economics,
honest money, honest banking, private property, private money,
liberty, and the Golden Rule in foreign policy. Think of what
we stand against: endless wars, the police state, the TSA, the
CIA, taxation, national socialism, fascism, Keynesianism, the
State: a gang of thieves writ large. We have so much to fight
for, and against, if you can help us be a shining beacon of freedom.

We
have a proven teaching mission. Help us expand and strengthen
it. Help us give heart to all the good people whose friends and
associates do not understand, and help us educate those friends
and associates too. Help us hit the opposition like a tsunami
of truth. Help
us
make 2011 an historic year for all we believe in.

Our enemies
fear us. Like the Orcs of Mordor, they revel in evil. They want
nothing less than a totalitarian regime. They fight to possess
the ring of power; we refuse to wear it. Throughout all of human
history, there has been a battle between power and market. That
battle continues. It will always continue. But for perhaps the
first time, we have a worldwide gathering of teachers and fighters
who will not be fooled, who will not be downhearted, who will
not be turned back. Do you hear in the distance, the trumpet blast
of our revolution of freedom and peace? Our ranks increase day
by day, with the best men and women on earth. Onward!
