“There exists a right independent of force; that a right to property is founded in our natural wants, in the means with which we are endowed to satisfy these wants, and the right to what we acquire by those means without violating the similar rights of other sensible beings; that NO ONE HAS A RIGHT TO OBSTRUCT ANOTHER exercising his faculties innocently for the relief of sensibilities made a part of his nature.” -- Thomas Jefferson
Insider Trading laws allow intervention BY FORCE into the very process of gaining and using knowledge. They are undefined, flexible, and unpredictable monstrosities. Regulators can deem any businessman a criminal anytime.
The advocacy or sanction of coercion is THE MARK OF EVIL.
"I have never been able to conceive how any rational being could propose happiness to himself from the exercise of power over others." -- Thomas Jefferson
Insider Trading and Antitrust laws have turned Wall Street into a SLAVE PEN.

The American Revolutionaries fought a king and his mighty empire that ALL individuals be free from coercion by other men and by the government. When asked to do good by force – to be king of the USA – George Washington responded: “Abhorrent!” He upheld individual rights. He rejected power. Power-lust is for little men.
If the White House, US Congress, and Securities & Exchange Commission GOLIATHS were not coward power-lusters, they would shed their GOONS, compete with honor in a coercion-free market, and wipe out all no good businesses and businessmen. Instead, these rampaging GOLIATHS, on coercive-power steroid, puff up, “FREE competition must be ENFORCED! FREE men must be SHACKLED! FREE men are RIGHTLESS! You can have your job creators and pitchfork them, too!”
The successful and the affluent have rights equal to the inherent inalienable rights of every man.
Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty. When wrongs are pressed because it is believed they will be borne, resistance becomes morality.
The time is at hand which must determine whether American businessmen are to be freemen or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their properties are to be pillaged and destroyed, and themselves consigned to a state of wretchedness from which no human efforts will deliver them. Their cruel and unrelenting oppressors leave them only the choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission. They must resolve to conquer or die.
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, may your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were ever our countrymen. As for me, give me liberty or I will fight unto death!
Americans love freedom. American businessmen must fight GOLIATHS for three reasons. First, they must defend their loved ones and their properties. Second, they fight for their own self respect. Third, they fight because they are free men!
Assert Freedom! Fight the knaves!
Else, be crowned cowards, willing slaves.
