About Rattler716

Been playing chess on and off since I was 14. Living in the great Republic of Texas and besides chess interests included reading, politics and current events and my activity with the Texas Tea Party. Looking to make some new chess friends

Some of my favorite quotes from various sources:

Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to become the means by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of other men. Blood, whips and guns--or dollars. Take your choice--there is no other. - Francisco D'Anconia

We the People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to ovethrow the men who pervert the Constitution. - Abraham Lincoln

I work for nothing but my own profit — which I make by selling a product they need to men who are willing and able to buy it. ... I do not sacrifice my interests to them nor do they sacrifice theirs to me; we deal as equals by mutual consent to mutual advantage — and I am proud of every penny that I have earned in this manner. . . . I refuse to apologize for my ability — I refuse to apologize for my success — I refuse to apologize for my money
- Hank Rearden

Socialism is the philosphy of failure, the credo of Ignorance and the Gospel of Envy. Its only virtue is the equal sharing of Misery. - Winston Churchill

There is no difference between Communism and Socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end. Communism proposes to enslave men by force; Socialism - by vote. Its merely the difference between murder and suicide. - Ayn Rand
