I'm a Libertarian Constitutionalist.

I don't give a shit what you do with your own life, whether you make it a success or a failure, that is the outcome of the choices you make, but please take responsibility for yourself and don't make ME pay for YOUR choices and we're all good.

Repeal the 17th Amendment and the Apportionment Act of 1911!

Thread: First steps down the road to a return to the Constitutional Republic that we were intended to be.

Restore the Republic.

It's a flower, not something to be feared.

This one is praising the Sumerian/Babylonian goddess Ishtar, the bird-winged.

In lips she is sweet;
life is in her mouth.
At her appearance rejoicing becomes full.
She is glorious;
veils are thrown over her head.
Her figure is beautiful;
her eyes are brilliant.
The goddess - with her there is counsel.
The fate of everything she holds in her hand.
At her glance there is created joy,
power, magnificence, the protecting deity,
and guardian spirit.
She dwells in,
she pays heed to compassion and friendliness.
Besides, agreeableness she truly possesses.
Be it slave, unattached girl, or mother, she preserves.
One calls on her; among women one names her name.
Who - to her greatness who can be equal?
Strong, exalted, splendid are her decrees.
Ishtar - to her greatness who can be equal?
Strong, exalted, splendid are her decrees.
She is sought after among the gods;
extraordinary is her station.
Respected is her word;
it is supreme over them.
Ishtar among the gods, extraordinary is her station.
Respected is her word;
it is supreme over them.

You alter the Fates, and an ill event becomes good;
I have sought you amongst the gods;
supplications are offered to you;
To you amongst the goddesses I have turned,
with intent to make entreaty,
Before you is a shedu, behind you a lamassu,
At your right is Justice, at your left Goodness,
Fixed on your head are Audience, Favour, Peace,
Your sides are encompassed with Life and Well-being;
How good it is to pray to you, how blessed to be heard by you!
Your glance is Audience, your utterance is the Light.
Have pity on me, O Ishtar!
Order my prospering!
Glance on me in affirmation!
Accept my litany!

I have borne your yoke;
set tranquility!
I have sought your brightness;
may my face be bright.
I have turned to your dominion;
may it be life and well-being for me.
May I (too) have a shedu like that before you;
May I (too) have a lamassu like that which goes behind you.
May I garner the prosperity at your right hand,
May I attain to the favour at your left hand...

Lengthen my days, bestow life!
Let me live, let me be well,
Let me proclaim your divinity!
Let me achieve what I desire . . . .

Well I'm still up, can't sleep... but I'm an atheist, so I suppose I'll just fuck off and die since your thread has excluded me. :(

God isn't about 99% of the bullshit you've seen in churches and the media. The real God is a unifying principle to the universe, the Sacred Geometry.

I am a pantheist which is almost identical to atheism. In fact, until I had my kundalini awakening a year or so ago, I also called myself an atheist.

Now I can successfully argue both sides... and more arguments was really all I was after ;)

6. And the Lord did continue to tell His people of the dangers of Unclean sinners. 7. But His flock cried out: 'Lord! How shall we know if the Most Unclean are in our midst?' 8. And the Lord did impart these divine words of wisdom upon them: 'Hear Me now, little flock, so that thou will have knowledge in identifying Unclean sinners. He who hath smelt it, hath dealt it. He who hath denied it, hath supplied it. And he who hath noted it, hath floated it. Pay heed, and carry out My Justice.'" -Snuffaluffagus 8:6-8.

Amen.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

Also, the gods and goddesses (demons, demonesses) are intended as metaphorical archetypes. Ishtar, for example, is said to be a "top level" archetype of the "inspired" female ego. Thusly, Ishtar's hymns reveal more of her true nature. By the way Inanna is a variant name for Ishtar.

FROM A HYMN TO INANNA

My father gave me the heavens,
gave me the earth,
I am Inanna!
Kingship he gave me,
queenship he gave me,
waging of battle he gave me,
the attack he gave me,
the floodstorm he gave me,
the hurricane he gave me!
The heavens he set as a crown on my head,
the earth he set as sandals on my feet,
a holy robe he wrapped around my body,
a holy sceptre he placed in my hand.
The gods are sparrows -- I am a falcon;
the Anunnaki trundle along -- I am a splendid wild cow;
I am father Enlil's splendid wild cow,
his splendid wild cow leading the way!
