Dull 'Hawk-isms

These were all posted as my Facebook statuses recently. I decided to share them here.
  • Ron Paul got liberty-leaning statist voters excited by pointing out that 4 + 6 = 10. Bernie Sanders gets economically ignorant voters excited by saying 7 divided by Tuesday wants to be whatever they imagine.
  • If there's a Carrington Event level solar storm and we lose all electronics for a few decades, know that even if we never connect again, I am probably very happy with the turn of events. Yes, it's a character flaw.
  • (If you support any candidate for president, you are not supporting liberty.)
  • I fear Darth Voter much more than Darth Vader.
  • "Wanting something to be regulated doesn't mean you want it banned!"  Well, perhaps. But what it means is you want to give someone the power to ban it if they want to. Why would you do that? You can see this effect in many areas.
  • What is wrong inside the heads of people who want to ban or regulate stuff?? I seriously don't get it at all.
  • You have the right to live according to your faith. You do not have a right to a "government job". 
  •  I hate random "what if" scenarios. Especially if they are calculated to scare you into some self-defeating course.
