"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

Why I'm Voting For Trump

I was going to post this on Nov. 7th but since people (nearly a third of voters) will be voting early, I decided to do it now.

Is Trump a stealth supporter of Hillary?

I ask because, until a few weeks ago, everything he did has done nothing but help Hillary Clinton. Unless he's hoping for (or knows about) some miracle that will take her out of the race. But I do not see that happening. She is protected by the Obama administration and the media. But she was easily beatable!  However, he has ignored advice from all corners and committed numerous mistakes in his campaign.

Faye doesn't like Trump but not because of the usual reasons, she thinks the media selected Trump to run against Hillary. Maybe so, I can't say. All I can say is that it appears he is not planning on victory. She thought this about McCain also. And I tend to agree, the media played up McCain until he was the nominee and then went after him unmercifully.

Much of what he (Trump) says is in reaction to statements by the other side... which I think is a part of their strategy.

On the other hand, I am reminded of the lop-sided battle between Goldwater and LBJ and the joke that was big during the Vietnam War:

They said if I voted for Goldwater, the war would expand, we'd bomb North Vietnam, and we'd be mired in an Asian war. I voted for Goldwater and, sure enough, that all came to pass...

The Obama administration finally acknowledged that the $400 million paid to Iran was, essentially, ransom (they called it "leverage") for the Americans they were holding.

The choice couldn't be more simple:

If you are happy with the way things are, vote for Hillary (because she promises no change). If you want change, vote for Trump.

These people claim they are leaving the US if Trump is elected:

Rosie O'Donnell

Lena Dunham

Chelsea Handler

Jon Stewart


Chloe Sevigny

Elizabeth Moss

Lily Rose Depp

Miley Cyrus

Samuel L. Jackson

Neve Campbell

Raven Symone

Eddie Griffin

I could not find anyone who said they will leave the country if Hillary wins.

I think that says something: conservatives will abide by the outcome but liberals won't.

And I like what Obama said at the DNC:

"...and that is why I can say with confidence there has never been a man or woman more qualified to serve as president of the United States of America." [implying that she, not he, should have been the Democratic nominee in 2008.] And he ran a campaign of lies. You now have the opportunity to erase the last eight years and change the system that exists. Another thing I don't like is that the system is heavily weighted toward the Democrats and that is because the Democrats have made it that way.

If you are African-American then I ask you to think about what the Democrats have done for (and to) you. They have filled you with fear of Republicans yet they have destroyed your families and built the ghettos ("the projects") many of you might live in. They have been running the cities in which you live for decades and haven't improved them. Don't you wonder why?

And, remember, your vote is secret... if you don't tell others who you voted for then they will never know.
Sure, Trump is a risk but so is life. Ask yourself if you want this country to follow the same path it has been on or do you really want change?

If you want change and to shake up the government, you will do as I intend to do:
Vote for TRUMP.
Here's another point of view:
