Joe Sobran Breaks Down Some Political Definitions

By In Blogs, Mitchell Thompson

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal.bio-reduced.jpg

If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative.

If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate.

If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist.

“Need” now means wanting someone else’s money.

“Greed” now means wanting to keep your own.

“Compassion” is when a politician arranges the transfer.

I was born and raised in Northern California where I was homeschooled. I became a Protestant (Calvinistic) seven years ago. I was also, starting in 2006, a Buchananite conservative until I met Ron Paul during the 2008 elections. From then on I read everything I could from the Mises Institute and am now satisfied as a Rothbardian libertarian. I am slowly becoming a more confessional Reformed Baptist. Hoping to get more and more involved on this site. My Twitter handle is @MitchRThompson. Cheers.

    And remember if China devalues its currency it’s manipulation.
    If we do it, it’s “monetary policy”
