STATEMENT:

"The law perverted! And the police powers of the state perverted along with it! The law, I say, not only turned from its proper purpose but made to follow an entirely contrary purpose! The law become the weapon of every kind of greed! Instead of checking crime, the law itself guilty of the evils it is supposed to punish!

"If this is true, it is a serious fact, and moral duty requires me to call the attention of my fellow-citizens to it."

The above words from Frederic Bastiat (the 19th century French statesman) ring too true for today's political climate, controlled by the "proctocracy" currently in Juneau (proctocracy - derived from the Greek work "proctos" meaning ---- well....I think you know).

Many social and economic issues face us today. As has always been, there are two basic ways to approach such issues.

The PROCTOCRATS call for more political government, but all systems of "OTHERS-government" cause injustice, strife and poverty. That's why there is no immigration rush to socialist or fascist countries.

LIBERTARIANS call for more "SELF-government." Societies with high self-government stimulate innovations that help feed, shelter and cure people. With more self-government, people produce enough for themselves and a surplus to help others.

I envision a future of self-determined individuals and I'm looking forward to your support in bringing this about. Working together, we can get the proctocrats out and reclaim ownership of our own lives.
