    Where to go? That is the question. Or do I stay here? If there were another place that was free I would go there.

    I've seen it used here (probably by you), but I have no idea what it means. What does it mean?

    It's worth $10,000 if he's right and nothing if you're right. That you have nothing to lose yet you still won't make the bet reveals how little you actually believe what you rant about.

    That is a pretty decisive vote for people who had the same intel that the president had.

    I think this is pretty close...

    Statism is the doctrine that maintains that your life, money and property are not yours, but the property of the state. A statist is any individual who upholds this doctrine and/or supports its implementation.

    A statist knows that he cannot get away with—at least, not yet—openly declaring that your life, money and property are not yours, so he advances these ideas by implicit means.

    Statists enact laws that forbid you from taking certain actions altogether or only if you have their permission—and the idea is: if you may only act by permission, you do not have a right to your life. Statists, through their regulations, determine how much of your money you will be allowed to keep—and the idea is: if you do not have the right to decide how your money is spent, your money is not yours. Statists issue decrees restricting how you may use your property—and the idea is: if you do not have the right to control the use and disposal of your property, your property is not yours. These are the indirect means by which statists promote and implement their ideas.

    An adult statist is grown up, physically, but in a state of self-arrested, stunted, mental development. His worldview is that of a child who can only do what his parents permit and who is dependent on his parents for everything. In the adult world, he seeks to forcibly impose this view on others. You are the child and the state, run by statists, is the parent. The statist may do anything he wants, while you may only do what the statist permits—bringing us a complete reversal of the way it should be. In fact, you should be free to do whatever you want (so long as you do not violate the right of another to do the same), while government officials should only be able to do what the law specifically permits—and no more.

    WHAT IS A STATIST?

    I think in fact this is pretty close to how liberal progressives in this day see their role, which is why Obama must go.
