Rudy-"Freedom is about authority"

















" Freedom is about authority.
Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful
authority a great deal of discretion about what you do."

WTF?

Here is another gem from the same speech-if you homeschool-you'll remember why.

"We're going to find the answer when schools once again train citizens. Schools exist in America and have always existed to train responsible citizens of the United States of America."


Of course, no one running for the throne would actually say something like that (out loud). This is from a speech made in 1994. Well, it is a weekend. So I am about to be coffeed up enough to become a blur blazing around getting everything done and probably won't become completely visible again until evening when the barbecue is going and there is a lime in my Corona. But I had to stop to share this lovely snippet with all of you. I think it would make a great slogan.

That first quote is one of the scariest things I have ever read. Oh my goodness. And this man is a front-runner for the presidency. I'm going to go crawl back into my bunker.

"Schools exist in America and have always existed to train responsible citizens of the United States of America."

This quote isn't even factually correct. Public schools didn't begin opening throughout America until the mid-nineteenth century.

If people think Bush has been bad--just wait if there is a President Rudy.

The psycho was washed up politically until he had the good fortune of having NYC bombed during the last days of his tenure.

And that is the sole "reason" for his popularity.

wow. All I can say is I totally agree with the other posters here. I felt a chill go down my spine while reading those quotes.

If this guy gets elected . . .I don't know. . .I think I'll move to Sealand.


I was so baffled by the first quote that I left out this gem,

"You have free speech so I can be heard."

Even the "W" wouldn't have said such a thing BEFORE getting elected.

Leah,

You make your own beer? That is the coolest thing I've heard all day.
