Liberty is BEAUTIFUL

As I drive from Farwell, Texas to Texico, New Mexico and cross the railroad tracks that intersect the state line between the two, I am struck by something. There is a subtle change as I cross the tracks.

Farwell is nice, in a controlled, subdued white-bread sort of way, but Texico often seems more vibrant and alive. As if it is more free.

As soon as New Mexico is entered (even in this area) you see "colorful" roadside vendors selling fruit, vegetables, Mexican hats, chihuahuas, clothing, pottery, etc. The yards of the residents have chickens and ducks. The artwork and crafts are more brightly colored. There is an air of more liberty and it really hits me: Liberty is beautiful. It is exciting. it is colorful. It is unpredictable and sometimes a tad inconvenient. I LOVE IT!

Maybe it isn't for people who have a dull, gray, out of focus personality. The living dead (or the dying alive) don't care for freedom. They fear it as "chaos". They are pathetic.



  1. Hi Kent,

    Sadly, given a choice between freedom and slavery, most people prefer slavery. What's even worse is most freedom lovers use the freedom-is-prosperity line to argue for less slavery.

    If, contemplating freedom, you were not-quite-sure about your money-handling skills or your ability to earn a living, you'd be hesitant about leaving Mom and Dad's house.

    The worse thing about living under a government is that it is boring. All the colors are just shades of grey.


  2. There are lots of areas where I'm not quite sure of my abilities, but if I never tried I'd never gain confidence. Those who refuse to even try are cheating themselves.
