If we lose freedom here, there’s no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.
This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capitol can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.
You and I are told increasingly we have to choose between a left or right. Well I’d like to suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There’s only an up or down—[up] man’s old—old-aged dream, the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order, or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. And regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course.
It is a never ending battle against the utopian statist.
You forgot: it may have been utopia for the statists, but isn’t utopia for you and me and most people.
As I recall, the 1964 election pitted Goldwater against Johnson.
I regret to report now that I voted for LBJ, unaware he would restore the 1945 planned one-world government that President Kennedy temporarily blocked with the Apollo program.
I was told that a vote for Goldwater was a vote for war. I voted for Goldwater, we got war.

Actually, it’s an excellent sign.
When the hubris, insularity and insanity of the “elites” becomes so unreasonable that even the dumbest of the sheep resent it, the unraveling can begin.
Ditto; we need more of this …
They started with banning Church bake good sales. This is from 2009 at a PROGRESSIVE website no less PA Church Ladies Raided by ‘Food Safety’ Cops (with links to original material) (Linn had actually figured out conservatives are human link )
