The Project for a New American Revolution (PNAR) is dedicated to promoting peace, freedom, prosperity and truth. America is urgently in need of a political revolution to bring about the decentralization of power and this revolution must first take place in the minds of Americans. Truthful information and critical thinking will be instrumental in bringing about the next political revolution.
Thoughts To Ponder
Stop trying to control.
Let go of fixed plans and concepts,
and the world will govern itself.
The more prohibitions you have,
the less virtuous people will be.
The more weapons you have,
the less secure people will be.
The more subsidies you have
the less self-reliant people will be.
Let go of the law,
and people become honest.
Let go of economics,
and people become prosperous.
Let go of religion,
and people become serene.
Let go of all desire for the common good,
and the good becomes common as grass.

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which I also believe - "That government is best which governs not at all"; and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have.
- Henry David Thoreau

Here is the Golden Rule of sound citizenship, the first and greatest lesson in the study of politics: you get the same order of criminality from any State to which you give power to exercise it; and whatever power you give the State to do things for you carries with it the equivalent power to do things to you.

I'll show you politics in America. Here it is, right here. "I think the puppet on the right shares my beliefs." "I think the puppet on the left is more to my liking."

By the way, keep drinking beer, you fucking morons. - Bill Hicks
Postition Paper #23:
Little Tony was sitting on a park bench munching
on one candy bar after another.
After the 6th candy bar, a man on the bench across from him said,
"Son, you know eating all that candy isn't good for you.
It will give you acne, rot your teeth, and make you fat."
Little Tony replied, "My grandfather lived to be 107 years old."
The man asked, "Did your grandfather eat 6 candy bars at a time?"
Little Tony answered, "No, he minded his own fucking business."
