No, not the entire event. This section was quite relevant though :D

One of the organizers of this tour is a documentary film maker and has TONS of footage from the time I spent in Japan. He cut out just the footage of this question for me because he knew it would be good for YouTube. I've just had it sitting around for months and never got around to cutting it up and posting it until now.

If you guys don't want him for President, can we have him as Prime Minister of NZ? All i need to do is arrange for my daughter to marry him and he will be a kiwi. He runs rings around all our other tired, used up politicians.

BUMP for crossing cultural boundaries with the message of freedom!!!

Imagine how much more potent a speech like this from Congressman Kokesh (R-NM) would be!

Nice work Adam! One thing you forgot to mention is how these Corporations not only steal (Bailout, Federal Reserve, etc.), but how they are even allowed to exist. In order for these Corporations to exist today they lobbied the Government (Starting in the late 19th Century) to create laws that make it considerably more expensive, and in many cases outlawed to even enter the market. Therefore, the Government by necessity creates a legalistic monopoly where the Corporation becomes a vestige of the Government. In effect, they lobby to create market barriers so their bloated, inefficient, wasteful, poorer quality good and service at artificially high prices cannot be competed against. This my friends, is the root of Corporatism, which spawned from Mercantilism. Really, this idea is as old as Monarchy (Really freaking old).

Examples include:

Employer mandates.
Taxation.
Regulatory rules which increase start up costs.
Clayton Act.
Anti-trust laws.
Legal Tender Laws.
Sherman Act.
Violation of Private Property rights. (Limited Liability Corps...the whole foundation which allows them to pollute our air, water, and land and increase costs to enter market due to it)

Etc. etc. no need to even go on.

Keep up the good work Adam! If you need something to read when you are on the road I'd be happy to send you something :p

I recommend to more easily accomodate yourself with the ridiculous fallacies you will encounter once you win -- The Failures of the New Economics - Henry Hazlitt :p

Go get em'!

@AEDisciple,

Great stuff! I'm with you on all that, but didn't have the list off the top of my head or the time! Thanks for the break down. I've got more than enough reading to do here (more than a lifetime's worth already) but if you have something you think would help, please send it.
