    I doubt there will ever come a time where Massie won't be based.

    "Let it not be said that we did nothing."-Ron Paul

    "We have set them on the hobby-horse of an idea about the absorption of individuality by the symbolic unit of COLLECTIVISM. They have never yet and they never will have the sense to reflect that this hobby-horse is a manifest violation of the most important law of nature, which has established from the very creation of the world one unit unlike another and precisely for the purpose of instituting individuality."- A Quote From Some Old Book

    Wait, so Supreme Court decisions can be wrong, then?

    According to whom?

    No, let me guess - according to the Supreme Court! Amirite?

    Yes, he quite possibly would. I know I certainly do.

    (And, hell, even Jefferson himself might well agree that he was wrong, if only he could see how things ended up.)

    Pro Tip:

    "The thing about Internet meme-quotes is that you can't really depend on their accuracy. They aren't scholarly citations, after all. They're just memes, for Turing's sake! They aren't meant to be accurate, they're meant to make a point (and if they end up being accurate as well, then you should consider that a bonus). So don't worry about it and just try to understand the point that's being made, or - if that's too much for you to cope with - take a damn pill, lie down for a while until your panties are no longer in a twist, and then move on to something less traumatizing. I recommend watching funny cat videos. Or go outside and split some rails. Both of those activities are quite relaxing - and you won't have to endure the distress of feeling such smug frustration over how much more clever you are than all those other fools on teh interwebz."
    -- Abraham Lincoln, Using the Internet (Land of Oz: Dewey Cheatham & Howe, 1808), p. 666

    According to most constitutional law scholars. And the Supreme Court, which later said the earlier case was based on an erroneous premise. And the American people, whose representatives ratified the 16th Amendment, thereby making the earlier case only the third SCOTUS decision in history to be overturned by a constitutional amendment in direct response thereto.

    Adding a famous name with positive connotation (such as Voltaire's) to a quote in an attempt to reinforce its message is dishonest. It's a tacit admission that the message can't stand on its own and that it would backfire if the real author's name were used.

    It really wouldn't work if the author were listed as "Kevin Alfred Strom, a neo-Nazi who pleaded guilty in 2008 to possession of child pornography", would it?

    Well hell, let's have Second Amendment supporters attach Samuel Adams' name to "Only an armed people can be the real bulwark of popular liberty." (it was actually Lenin, but who's quibbling?).

    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.
