First, we have to get out of this mindset of "conservative" and "liberal." All it does is further segregate our already

Conservative is often times associated with Nascar, rednecks, and radical christianity, freedom...etc.

Liberalism is often times associated with pop-culture, counter-culture (depending on what, because counter-culture can be attributed to any non-meainstream type living,) art, and freedom as well...etc.

Note that both sides, always consider themselves to be the persuers of freedom.

Lets break down what exactly these two deffinitions mean:

(both deffinitions derived from


2 a: of or relating to a philosophy of conservatism b. capitalized : of or constituting a political party professing the principles of conservatism: as (1): of or constituting a party of the United Kingdom advocating support of established institutions (2): progressive conservative
3 a: tending or disposed to maintain existing views, conditions, or institutions : traditional b: marked by moderation or caution <a conservative estimate> c: marked by or relating to traditional norms of taste, elegance, style, or manners
4: of, relating to, or practicing Conservative Judaism

1 a: of, relating to, or based on the liberal arts <liberal education> barchaic : of or befitting a man of free birth
2 a: marked by generosity : openhanded <a liberal giver> b: given or provided in a generous and openhanded way <a liberal meal> c: ample , full
3obsolete : lacking moral restraint : licentious
4: not literal or strict : loose <a liberal translation>
5: broad-minded ; especially : not bound by authoritarianism, orthodoxy, or traditional forms
6 a: of, favoring, or based upon the principles of liberalism b. capitalized : of or constituting a political party advocating or associated with the principles of political liberalism ; especially : of or constituting a political party in the United Kingdom associated with ideals of individual especially economic freedom, greater individual participation in government, and constitutional, political, and administrative reforms designed to secure these objectives.


After reading both of these deffinitions, im sure that all of us can probably find both implimented inside of our lives. Whether it be our religious views, or our day to day lives, or our beliefs. No matter what, and no matter what you label yourself, you will find that pieces of both are inherit in yourself to some degree.

To each his own way of belief. This I can agree with. However, believe it or not, "To each his own way of belief," is very much an American conservative view... yet involves somewhat of a "liberal" notion. I can favor the freedom to believe, that you can favor the freedom of opinion, is an even more mixed notion. In this, we are saying, conservatively, that we are abiding by constitutional philosophy, our right to Freedom as a philosophy, which is individualised. This is greatly attributed to the 3rd, and sub-B. deffinition of Conservative found above... as it is traditionally to be practiced, to maintain freedom of thought, and conservatively applied, to make it tyrannical if opposed. As for "b." "Marked with moderation or caution," in that freedom is very easy to give away, and lose. In this, Wisdom, must be used, when employing freedom, lest you lose it.

Yet it is liberal, in the sense of the 4th and 5th deffinitions of the word Liberal, found above. "Broad minded. Not bound by Authoritarianism, orthodoxy, or traditional forms. " This in itself is actually referring to the individuals sense of being free. To not be bound to forced obligations of things you do not agree with. This is actually highly individualized in itself... when often times, the "Liberal," approves a collectivized systems of life. Inside of this statement, we find a conservative appeal, in that our "orthodoxy," is that of... no perscribed method of orthodoxy, and that we may adhere to our own beliefs, strict standards, or lack there-of, or moderation....there-of. Either or, it is left to our individualized beliefs, and practices, as long as we do not impede upon others desires for the same.

Although the 5th deffinition can be found inside the 4th, we find something else, that creates a little bit of a problem. "4: not literal or strict : loose <a liberal translation>" This can be utilized to the betterment of a law, which will not impede upon another, or for the exact polar opposite. "A liberal translation," can be utilized for something, that can ultimately destroy the orthodoxy (or conservative notion..) to be free.

What happens when we apply the 4th deffinition to "Freedom of speach?" or "The Right to bare arms?" or even "The right to pursue happiness.." Often times, the Right-wing, being associated with conservativism, and the Left-wing, being associated with liberalism, highly debate on how "liberal" they can be with these terms, when it comes to executing a democratic method of an individualized moral standard. They both, flip-flop on which one takes the conservative stance, or the liberal stance, on deffining the interpretation of the law. "Its black and can say what you want to." or "Its grey, you cant tell people its wrong/right to be gay, or you cant say fuck at a it is a public place filled with minors, and offended parents.."

The ultimate battle of this, now mixed political party attribute (liberal, conservative) becomes ELIMINATED. The conservatives may or may not say... "YOU CANT SAY FUCK AT A BALLPARK!" ... guess what? Now the Conservative group, is liberal... as they have to liberally interpret the law "Freedom of Speach." The Liberals might argue... "Freedom of Speach.. its stated black and white.." Now the Liberals have flipped and become conservative. In this sense, the Liberals take the proper field for say, as you cannot place an orthodox belief upon someone due to your own moral obligations... as you have the right, not to listen to what they say."

(I do understand that situations can become a little more in depth than what I have proposed, but I think we can all find agreement in the basic ideology I am shooting for.)

On another notion, we might find, that conservatives might argue: "Right to bare arms, since the government might revolt against you! Or you want to protect your personal property!" .. its the "Bill of Rights." and the liberals might argue "Right to bare arms is fine! But what if you are a criminal? What if you have a habit of robbing peoples money? What if a child picks up the gun.. and shoots himself on accident, because you carelessly let it lie around?"
Here, the conservatives, maintained their "conservative" reading of the law, as where the Liberals.. maintained a more "liberal" translation of the law.

What I find, ultimately, is that Liberal parties and Conservative parties, both utilize the opposing deffinition about 50/50 for there own benefit, to incorperate an individualized moral code, upon 49% of the country (as I am directly associating what this post is about, with the American system.) In this, we find a contradicting practice in BOTH LIBERAL AND CONSERVATIVE DIVISIONS. Let alone, both systems, are only to be utilized by the INDIVIDUAL, to maintain THEIR (the individuals) right to "LIFE, LIBERTY, and the PERSUITE OF HAPPINESS."

The deffinition of Liberty:

1: the quality or state of being free: a: the power to do as one pleases b: freedom from physical restraint c: freedom from arbitrary or despotic control d: the positive enjoyment of various social, political, or economic rights and privileges e: the power of choice
2 a: a right or immunity enjoyed by prescription or by grant : privilege b: permission especially to go freely within specified limits
3: an action going beyond normal limits: as a: a breach of etiquette or propriety : familiarity b: risk , chance <took foolish liberties with his health> c: a violation of rules or a deviation from standard practice d: a distortion of fact
4: a short authorized absence from naval duty usually for less than 48 hours

Unfortunately, according to this deffinition (Also found in the dictionary..) we find something very interesting. Why do I say unfortunately? Because it actually threatens the very life of the right-wing/left-wing mentality. The entire deffinition(s), if you will, is actually something that must be utilized with knowledge, or else you will get yourself sick, possibly burn your house down, shoot yourself on accident, shoot someone else on accident, become a wasteful human being, not do a damn thing, or even dislike someone for the color of their skin! However, with knowledge, and education, you will privilege yourself, and others around you... as well as society. You might begin an enterprise, you might wonder around the streets all day begging people for money, untill you have enough of it, to begin your own business, or buy a house. The imaginable ideas are limitless, to both a positive or a negative extreme.

However, the concept of Liberty on its own, also entails, the right to Life, and Persuit of Happiness. These are both left to your bidding.

In America, we have specific laws, as laid out by the Constitution, which entitle one to this specified doctrine (Life, Liberty..etc.) It also, entails rules, orthodox rules (as they need be,) to not impede upon anothers right, to the former! In American history, we have had contradictions to the very constitution that was written! Liberty is expensive. Why? With Liberty, you might harm yourself seriously, which is why it is up to you to educate yourself, using the best of your abilities, to utilize what you DO have, and to execute your internal gifts, to persue happiness.

When you are in your house, there is no law (to my knowledge,) stating that you cannot touch a burning candle. You still dont do it, unless if you dont know! To touch the flame... HURTS! It leaves injury! This is common sense, which is why I use this example, so that everyone can understand! You know through education, of experience, not to touch fire, or you will get burned! This is liberty, the freedom, to conciously, NOT do something that may harm you, and its within the law, not to burn someone else by force as this would be eliminating their Liberty, and im also sure its not in their right to Life or Persuit of Happiness either.

What if you accidently burn someone? Well, you now have gained knowledge, but you unpurposfully impeded on their rights. For this, laws can be laid out, to equate the damage you inflicted. This part is much deeper than the initial point I am getting at, within the realm of Conservative and Liberal.

Education Education Education, this is the right to everyone, and if you do not have it, than you better find it. If you dont know to find it, that is not the responsibility of anyone else, other than someone WHOM INDIVIDUALLY ACCEPTS the responsibility of giving it to you. Liberty can be a bitch. Your ability to strive, and go far with yourself, is left to your personal will, and persuit of happiness. To force education on people, is to rob them of liberty. I may be considered a bad guy for saying that. It is true. When you start forcing anything upon anyone, you rob them of their right, to persue what it is THEY individually may want to learn, or method of learning they want to persue.

If individuals come together in organization, and want to better their localized society, without forcing methods/education/laws that may hinder the Individual Rights (Life LIberty..etc.) than this is GREAT. It is without Government (government, which creates punishments, and taxes on not necessarily agreeing individuals, impeding upon their Individual/Natural Rights,) that creates freedom. Organization by the people, is freedom, and the ability to educate those whom want to seek education, and cannot find it.

This leads me to what America is, a Republic:

Definition of Republic:

1 a (1): a government having a chief of state who is not a monarch and who in modern times is usually a president (2): a political unit (as a nation) having such a form of government b (1): a government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law (2): a political unit (as a nation) having such a form of government c: a usually specified republican government of a political unit <the French Fourth Republic>
2: a body of persons freely engaged in a specified activity <the republic of letters>
3: a constituent political and territorial unit of the former nations of Czechoslovakia, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, or Yugoslavia


Here we find, according to the 2nd deffinition, "a body of persons freely engaged in a specified activity." Freely engaged. Not forced. Not impeded upon, yet freely engaged. "I want to donate my time to building peoples houses." "I dont want to donate my time to building peoples houses."

The ability to freely engage in a specified activity, is a very very very strong definitive point. Why? Because this eliminates the MAJORITY of purposes, a free republic, which operates on the Natural Rights (Life LIberty and Persuit of Happiness,) would have to pay taxes, and especially pay taxes towards things a democratic majority voted for, that may not fall in their favor.

Directly related to this previous paragraph, I would like to announce this phrase, from one of the founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson:

"To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."

If I am against abortion, should I pay a tax to help people recieve. Vise versa, if I am pro-choice, should I have to pay taxes to help fund its abolition?

The answer is an obvious, no. You should. Now you are laboring for something that is evil to you! This is a tyrannicaly oppressive motive, which 51% of the nation, was given the illegal opprotunity, to vote for people, to have the power, to force a moral implication upon yourself, that impedes upon your Natural Rights. Since you donated this tax to something you abhor, you now have less money, which you labored for, to persue what is important to you within your Natural Rights.

I want everyone to remember, that America is a melting pot of ideology, and beliefs, through individuality. The only laws that should apply, are ones that restrict the ability to impede upon Natural Liberties. Although Liberty is dangerous, you should not saccrifice the chance to educate yourself, and make the most out of it, to eliminate it, and have a few securities. The securities are much more worthwhile, when you have earned them. If you are to demand that someone give you security, whether it be through taxation of a group, or robbing of the individual with a hand-gun... I would prefer to be robbed by hand-gun. Why? Because at least the crook who robbed me, only robbed me, rather than millions of paychecks across the nation.

Liberal and Conservative divisional party sects, are actually undermining to our persuit of Natural Freedoms, as both create more purpose to eliminate Liberty, and liberalize the law....and stretch the law, to use Liberty, to handcuff itself, and be no more. I use "Liberal" here in the effects of its uses toward the Conservative and Liberal parties. Left-wing, and Right-wing.. actually, just lead to the same thing. Lack of liberty. When individually applied to ones self, they act as a standard for living, and conduction of ones behaviors due to their moral code, and attitudes. However, when collectively applied to a nation, in the sense of democracy, we see vast elimination of laws, that protect the very thing they were created to uphold... our Natural Rights.

I blame this largely on Major Network News/Media groups. Many of these groups do not act out of the Natural Rights for free individuals, and seek to pinch the pockets of Americans, by applying restrictions upon liberties... and corner the now collectivised group of individuals, into emptying their pockets for things, they have been taught to believe... COLLECTIVELY.

WE MUST ELIMINATE MAJOR NETWORK MEDIA GROUPS, and flourish within our small networks, to not dominate an entire nation, through applying methods of persuasion. Everyone right now thinks that "Gay Rights" is a major issue, yet no one is arguing with Zoning laws, as that impedes upon individual rights as well.

We know that the major network media organizations, may or may not be ran by American individuals, whom may or may not strive for Natural Rights. One thing is for sure, that the common man must bond together to protect these inherit God-given freedoms. A Conspiracy of ideas is outlined by the media to persuade an individual into having emotional feelings towards a specific ideal. The Logos directly inpires the Ethos and implants the Pathos into the morphed judgement of an individual. (this can be found in the previous post entitled Logos, Ethos, and Pathos..)

The Major Network News organizations, are allowed to say what they want to, to push a people into affecting their government for change, according to the CEO chairpeoples agenda's. This is how a Republic can be dangerous, as you can learn how to affect peoples minds, into affecting change (for the better or worse,) of a society through the passing of laws, and the electing of specific powers.

Did you know more than 23 people ran for president this year? Which ones can you tell me about, equally? This is a swindle that has been put on by those in complete control over what AMERICA watches.

We are the ones that affect change, and the only ones whom seem to get it, are the "Elite" powers of the world. They consitently utilize their resources of Media, to create an ideal, which they hold importance to... and affect you through Emotion and Logic, to vote, and protest.


I believe that we should band-together, and fight all major network media scoundrels, they are anti-liberty-for-all, and use mental stimulation as a tool to promote their agendas, and promote further freedom for themselves, at the expense of our hard work. NO more tyranny. NO more unjust taxes. NO more expansion of government. No more of the BULLSHIT LEFT-WING RIGHT-WING DIVISIONAL SECT. ITS ALL ABOUT THE INDIVIDUAL, NOT THE GROUP. YOU ARE YOU, YOU ARE NOT ME. Everyone is different, no one shares the same personality... you cannot be divided against your brother by means of mental boundaries proposed and enforced by the persuit of a tyrants desire for his own, at our expense.



Remember these quotes, as they directly apply to your culture, and moral code of being a free person:
Thomas Jefferson:

"Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty"

"Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have ... The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases."

"Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? "

"A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate. "

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. -Thomas Jefferson
