This post was originally posted here on 15-October-2015 as well as reposted to the BudBromely blog. The author, David Chaney, first published this post on Facebook as part of his drafts on “Thoughts On Liberty”

“Capitalism is the proven economic engine of freedom. Socialism is the failed economic hypothesis of collectivism.

“The former requires private property ownership, protection of individual liberty, and free-exchange. The latter requires State or State controlled (crony) property, elimination of individual liberty, and centrally planned exchange.

“The former has enabled the greatest opportunity and prosperity for the broadest numbers of people of all genres and classes in human history. The latter has destroyed opportunity, prosperity, and the lives of hundreds of millions of individuals throughout history.

“The former works because it drives the motivation, responsibility, and character of those who desire to gain the greatest value from their own efforts, leading to the greatest exchange of market signals and information, as well as, the greatest possible innovation, invention and productivity. The latter fails because it destroys the motivation, responsibility, and character of those who desire to succeed to the best if their ability, leading to the destruction of market signals, economic calculation, as well as, the greatest plunder, tyranny, and destruction in all of human history.

“Don’t be a sucker who accepts the coercive and plundering lies of those promoting the latter for personal central planning crony gains. Believe in your own freedom and natural rights to own property, start businesses, self-determine, and freely exchange your property towards your own destiny.”

~ DM Chaney “Thoughts on Liberty” (Drafts)

BANNED DOCUMENTARY: Conspiracy Of Silence (1993)

Conspiracy Of Silence Is a documentary film detailing an alleged child sex scandal that involved many children from a Nebraska Institution, Boys Town, and Lawrence King - or Lawrence "Larry" King.

The organized child sex parties implicated the Reagan and Bush White House during the 1980s.

King was the ringleader of the sex ring which had links to other fellow political conservatives in Washington D.C., including

  • Republican Lobbyist Craig J. Spence
  • Sen. Elizabeth Dole's Staff, along with
  • members of the financial elite of Nebraska

It features former CIA Director William Colby talking about the high-level child kidnap and sex-slave ring.

The book that was the basis of this movie can be found by clicking here.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty

The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....

... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

You can view the full oration by clicking here.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.

There are only 2 nations that have placed God within their Constitution: one was created by God for the people He loves, the other created by the people who love Him.
