From lemonade stand arrests, to seatbelt violators being tazed, and roll-throughs at stop signs being ticketed at unbelievable rates, what do we do? Well, at least in smaller communities, the answer is more simple than it seems. We've started the revolution here on the net by raising awareness. That's the first step. SECOND: find people who believe in personal liberty and freedom, and property rights who are running for office. Then, support their campaigns, and finally VOTE for them! If you find no one who meets your criteria... maybe you need to run for city council, or whatever.
And before the "elections are rigged" argument comes up: Sure, the national elections have more bugs than some common street walker hustling the corner; but TPTB won't risk DIEBOLD fraud becoming evident just because of a local election. Your votes at the local level DO count.
So get out there, ATS! Lets bring our country back one town/city at a time!

You seem to forget, that hooker has a pimp. He is the one making the money and she is out there because he is using her, threatening her, and forcing her. Free market capitalism based on supply and demand. He has made her a product.

The man behind the scenes is making it look like she wants this life for herself and at the same time playing on the weak predictability of the men. Taking their money and using them both.

If you can't see who the real criminals are it can be very dangerous and difficult.
In any case, you are in no position to choose a leader.

Re-read my post. My reference to the prostitute was the "bugs" as a tongue-in-cheek comparison to the problems reported with electronic votin. I wasn't using him/her as an example of a criminal. You are taking it out of context. Try again.

I agree with you theoretically, but not only on local levels but also national level what the Sen or Rep votes on in this country not only effects you at a national level but locally as well. So, all Sen and Rep are in affect making laws that will trickle down to you and me, and while we might get lucky with a local rep. what can they do if its a national law? It's a puzzle within a puzzle. But definately a good start, especially for those who are ambitious to rise to a higher level of politics.

Voting is a crime read treason by design on ATS, until people start to study law and not case law, but true law found in every law book printed in the Union there will never be change. Also look up my thread on PAC Patriot miss beliefs for more on truth and the law. You have to get beyond the brainwashing before you can move forward.

Or a madam, such as Heidi Fleiss:


Fleiss has stated that she made her first "million [dollars] after only four months in the business" as a madam, and that on her slowest night she only made $10,000.[5] By 1991 and 1992, she was so successful that she began rejecting girls to work for her, and at this time other pimps and madams became envious of Fleiss' success. She attributes her subsequent investigation, in which the LAPD began wiretapping phone conversations, and ultimately organized a June 8, 1993 sting investigation, to this. In June 1993, she was arrested for multiple charges, including attempted pandering. News of the story broke in August 1993, causing a media frenzy.


Or the Happy Hooker:


In 1968, she left her job as the secretary of the Dutch consulate in Manhattan to become a call girl, where she made $1,000 a night. A year later she opened her own brothel called the Vertical Whorehouse and soon became New York City's leading madam.

In 1971, she was arrested for prostitution by New York police and was forced to leave the U.S.[3] In 1971 Hollander published a memoir, The Happy Hooker: My Own Story, that she co-authored with Robin Moore and Yvonne Dunleavy.[2] The book was notable for its frankness by the standards of the time, and is considered a landmark of positive writing about sex. Hollander details in the book her life as a liberal and open-minded girl. She states that during the start of her career she did not ask for cash in exchange for sex, but her partners voluntarily gave her money and other presents.


And there is, of course, Nevada Prostitution, which depending upon the bias is either a good, or a bad thing.

Not as cut and dry as you've presented it, which is not to say the problems you've pointed to do not exist, it is just not a universal problem among hookers.

Touchy subject.

Politics are easily corrupted and will always be. Men and women who once held values of humility, compassion & the desire to change the nation for the better are becoming more and more dumbed down themselves it seems. I check in on CSPAN once in a while and everyone there most of the time is half asleep, staring into a void like a zombie or looking completely uninterested in anything going on. They realise they are going to get paid either way however the dice lay so why bother? It's the few who keep fighting the good fight to make change.Who havent lost their patriotism or gave up. So many of us walk around with self-defeated ways of thinking and most of it comes from msm propaganda to dumb us down and believe we have no power to change anything. We have the power to change anything we want. IF theres enough of us involved. I watched the protests in Cairo the other day and was astonished at the thousands that had gathered. Made our American "occupy" movement look small in comparison. Im not saying we all need to take to the streets to bring about change, but it doesnt hurt. So many people complain about how much they hate their government, yet we are comfortable enough not to get motivated to do anything to bring about change.

I fear by the time we have a real movement in this country and the world it will be too late.

I just took exception to this expression...sorry. Probably pointless in retrospect.


some common street walker hustling the corner;


I was making a representative comparison between the modern republican mindset which likes to make these moral decisions for us and a more civilly tolerant democratic one allowing a variety of cultures and beliefs. Prostitution is not going away and yet this categorical denial of it happening is harmful, far far more harmful I think than legalized prostitution would be. If we are so moral - why the porn? I think was a successful analogy that I hoped you might have noticed. I'm just sayin'
