I'm so happy you are pursuing your dreams! Remember... Giant twinkies talking to cops can't fly without umbrellas. 143.
Otherwise, this past week was the "Festival of Resistance" here. Meaning, politically motivated students decided to publicize their views across campus. It was interesting to watch. There is a lot of support for Ron Paul here. Most of the materials that I have seen are not aimed to generate votes as much as awareness, although the two are obviously connected.
The Ayn Rand book that I am reading included a passage that I thought would be interesting to anyone who has heard Dad preach about the gold standard:
"Whenever destroyers appear among men, they start by destroying money, for money is men's protection and the base of a moral existence. Destroyers seize gold and leave to its owners a counterfeit pile of paper. This kills all objective standards and delivers men into the arbitrary power of an arbitrary setter of values. Gold was an objective value, an equivalent of wealth produced. Paper is a mortgage on wealth that does not exist, backed by a gun aimed at those who are expected to produce it. Paper is a check drawn by legal looters upon an account which is not theirs: upon the virtue of the victims. Watch for the day when it bounces, marked, 'Account overdrawn.' -Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
That's all for now! Best Wishes.
