"...as all history informs us, there has been in every State & Kingdom a constant kind of warfare between the governing & governed: the one striving to obtain more for its support, and the other to pay less. And this has alone occasioned great convulsions, actual civil wars, ending either in dethroning of the Princes, or enslaving of the people. Generally indeed the ruling power carries its point, the revenues of princes constantly increasing, and we see that they are never satisfied, but always in want of more. The more the people are discontented with the oppression of taxes; the greater need the prince has of money to distribute among his partisans and pay the troops that are to suppress all resistance, and enable him to plunder at pleasure. There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh, get first all the peoples money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants for ever." ~ Benjamin Franklin
What They're Saying About STR
I really like strike-the-root. Aesthetically, the site is outstanding. I like the black background and the bold hyperlinks. The fonts are eye-catching. The theme is brilliant, very clever. The content has been strong--you have found some great links. Thanks for putting in the time and effort to help the cause. Keep up the good work. It's important.
Absolutely excellent. I take back all of those bad things I said about you :-). I now think it's even BETTER than LRC.
Well sir, I made the mistake of going to your website, thanks a lot! Now I'm faced with hours, and hours, and more hours of reading, just what I needed, more reading. Looks like a great site fellow, you done been book marked and shortcut-ed.
I just wanted to congratulate you on your new web site. After a few weeks worth of visits, I can tell you that it has now become part of my morning internet routine: first LRC, then strike-the-root. Thank you for providing this news filter service. I wish you success with this new endeavor.
Just wanted to thank you for Strike-the-Root. I am very impressed with the quality of the articles, and the variety. Count me as one of your fans!
I'm not on the net as much as I used to be, but when I am, I'm usually out looking for good, interesting info (such as is amply provided for me by Strike the Root). :) Also, is it OK if I tell all my associates about STR? I know some folks would love it. Thanks--and most of all, keep up the good work! I have really enjoyed STR, and learned quite a bit. I admire your willingness to read all and sundry and to make note of the good stuff, whether it is right/left wing. I like that sort of balance and your brief commentary too.
Your IMAGES is a work of art and genius. It's a vital undigested kernel of ripe grain in the enormous pile of horse sh** produced by the Internet. Best wishes and thanks for bringing me on board.
You are doing an EXCELLENT job.
I always thought I was an extreme libertarian. So it is intellectually stimulating and fun to encounter a site which is farther toward anarchism than I.
I really value your site and its opinions.
First and foremost, enjoy the site greatly.
I think your site is very important and will become more so in the months and years ahead as the Bush Administration takes advantage of the "terror crisis" to clamp down on more of our freedoms. You and Lew are truly this decade's "Sons of Liberty." We need you.
STR has been fabulous lately. I’m not sure how you work . . . and edit your website every day. I don’t think I could do it. Keep up the great work.
Keep striking the root--it's always an interesting read.
I love Strike the Root! Please bear with one request: I have STR linked on my home page (it's a must-read, everyday) and no longer need the e-mail version. Thank you for a great addition to my daily learning. I'll do my best to help out with some financial support in the not-too-distant future.
. . . after all, you're the one putting all of the work into your site, and I find it very useful indeed. Thank you for all you do!
You're doing a good job. Thank you so much for your effort.
I like what you are doing. Keep up the good work!
For the past month or two I have been reading your website and I am impressed.
I enjoy it [STR] greatly.
This article is a good example of why I enjoy your site. I don't agree with everything I read here. But for every thousand editorials opposed to my view on one side (let's call it the Liberal/Conservative Spectrum) your site offers one of the very few viewpoints on the "other side." For now, I will maintain my own, relatively extreme position. But if I had to chose between the two opposite viewpoints, I would side with you. Carry On!
I haven't visited your site in a while, so I was really impressed by how it's coming along. I think it looks very professional, and has the "edginess" that any good anarchist website should. If I had the time and ability to host my own site, I think it would look a lot like yours.
You really are doing a fantastic job with the site.
I like how your site looks/works and I wonder if you are doing all that by hand.
I've enjoyed Strike The Root. You have a sharp mind and a wonderful sense of humor. Keep up the fight and your search for truth.
Keep up the good work. I really like your site. It and LewRockwell are the first two places I hit every morning.
Greetings, webmasters and writers. You are all doing great work! Myself and many other students and youth have been visiting your sites (AntiWar.com, LewRockwell.com, anti-state, Strike the Root, etc.).
What a GREAT website you have there. Tremendous!
Today's Root is one of the best in a long time. The bits on the CreepRepublic and its Feuhrer are superb, of course, but everything I read there today is excellent.
I'm very impressed with what I've seen of your website.
Your article archives are impressive.
Great site. I enjoy it even more than LRC, as the good articles are not interspersed with Heroic Herbs and Catholicism. The calendar is very useful for reading the archives, the site design is excellent, and I like the Henry David Thoreau angle. I may just have to find some of his work.
Damn good site you've got there.
Let me say that every buck I sent to keep your site in business, is most well spent. As long as you are an agent of Liberty (that's my wife, in NY harbor), I'll keep sending the coin of the realm.
Keep on truckin, Mr. M. A new world awaits, and its character is up for grabs. Your work helps move it, however slightly, in the right direction.
Keep up the great work and the refinements. You're building a 900 foot monument to the god you believe in.
The site is looking GREAT!
I am not surprised that STR is rocking; I get lots of emails after each of my articles is published. You have added a lot of columnists since I joined, and we really rival Lew's site now, in my opinion, and that is saying a lot. The changes you made to the physical look of it were excellent and work well, too. I know it's a lot of work, but it's worth it. Keep it up.
Thank you for all your great effort in the name of freedom.
Where do you find the time to hold a job and to have a great web site? I admire you.
We are having an impact at STR, if what I see is any indication.
STR can be BIG, amigo. We are already having an effect on a lot of people.
Someone suggested that I check out your site and, after doing so, I have to say that I'm glad he did. Great site! Good articles and appealing layout.
I visit your website daily and enjoy very much the original "striker's" articles and excellent links you provide. You've managed to gather up some pretty fine writers for the site in such a short time.
Forgot to congratulate you on a great job with STR. Fascinating stuff on there.
I think you're doing an excellent job.
Keep up your great work at Strike The Root.
I am really enjoying your site; it's so great to be assigned a site where literally ALL the columns (at least the ones I've read so far) are well written, entertaining and libertarian.
Just checked out your site--good stuff!
Your STR store is fantastic!
I like the range of articles you present, and I think it sets a really nice tone that is precisely you and your intention.
You've got a really nice site there. Thanks for introducing me to your excellent site.
I love your site and visit it daily.
Last night I finished reading every single article you wrote that I could find. You win my vote hands down. Baby, you're the best.
You have some good stuff and an excellent eye for links. How do you find time to find all that stuff?
You have a nice website!!
I like the new look to your web site. The flag is neat.
You've got to be kidding me! First a website, then a banner and, now a store! If I see someone on the street with a T-shirt, I think I'll pass out!
Great on the new STR store, I love it!!!!
I like your site. I read it daily.
You had some great links on the website today.
I must say that STR is very good. Please keep up the good work and let's rock the Warmongers.
But I do enjoy STR. You are doing a great job, all the way around.
Thank you so much for doing what you're doing! I'll be spending a long time following the links from your site before I exhaust them.
Thought you might like to know I received an email about my last column from Japan. Looks like STR is reaching far and wide.
You do a great job with your headlines. They're a terrifice feature of the site.
You must put a lot of hours every day into this site. My thanks again for all the hard work you do. This country is the better for it, I have no doubt.
Keep up the work on a great website!
My thanks again for your exhausting and vital work.
This is just a note to compliment you on your website. It's TRULY OUTSTANDING!--much better format and presentation than Rockwell's.
Please take care not to burn out, get sick, and/or die any time soon! We, this nation and everyone in it, need you, and it might require several people to take your place if you were not here.
Woo-hoo! Just got my STR T-shirt and coffee mug in the mail today. Can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can sport the shirt! The mug turned out really well. Overall, I think the shirt looks really good. It's simple. It has an aura of mystery. (i.e., who is that old guy on his shirt? What does strike the root mean? I better check out that URL!) And it's visually appealing.
I just ordered an STR T-shirt online! Your website is looking better all the time. Those pictures of you look pretty cool, but you look like Timothy McVeigh in the first one!
I was introduced to your website and went there to read the articles. It is a great site.
Your site is a kick. Great job.
I had a look at Strike-The-Root.com, and I think you've done a great job.
Great site with lots of info!
I have been enjoying your site for several weeks now.
Keep up the good work.
I'm pretty much addicted to STR now.
I dig STR.
Congratulations on a first-rate and growing website.
It seems as if STR is a big undertaking. You do a fine job with it!
STR is a great site!
I look forward to reading my words on your great site.
STR must be getting an outrageous hit count, as you would not believe the e-mail I have gotten from my debut posting.
Just wanted to let you know how very much I enjoy STR. I find at least 2 or 3 great pieces most every day! Keep up the great work.
STR really deserves credit. I know I send folks to your site often and they usually e-mail me back that they really get a kick out of it.
STR is rapidly becoming a big hit.
Love your site; love your columns at both your site and at LewRockwell.com. Keep up the good work!
It's wild how much you've been able to wedge into the STR site, yet it remains very easy to follow and very well organized.
STR is looking good these days. Lots of links and good variety.
First, let me just say, you're doing a hell of a job with STR. Of the four online publications I frequent (STR, lewrockwell, anti-state, and Libertarian Enterprise), I think STR stands head and shoulders above the others. STR to me represents the best elements of LRC, without those certain biases that, I feel, end up betraying their message. One day we'll look back and be able to point to STR as the catalyst for the intellectual awakening that changed the world.
Your site continues to be a breath of fresh air in the political landscape.
Great writing, great thinking...and the ignorant know not what they do or how to think. So, hang in there and keep up the good work!
Thanks for your great website, and keep up the good work.
I've always wondered how you find all those great links?
Your site looks really interesting. It looks like you have some really thought-provoking links and a good mix.
Today's update is one of the most interesting ever!
I know a few congressional staffers. Today I visited with one of them. I showed him STR and he bookmarked the site after looking around. What first drew him there was my column, but the other stuff interested him. Hey, you're getting popular.
STR provides different perspectives on my political philosophy and sparks my thinking to examine what I really believe.
I forgot to mention that I'm pleased and proud to be published on STR.
I personally think STR is one of the best sites on the Net, I thoroughly enjoy the columns, I don't think I've ever seen a "bad" one.
I check your site every day. And seldom I'm disappointed.
By the way, I enjoy your site.
I browsed your STR site. I love the layout and design. The concept, coupled with the concept is truly brilliant.
I love your website, great content and value. Keep up the great work. Plenty of us out here taking notice.
The relevance and prominence of your site continues to grow.
By the way, this interview series you have started is VERY impressive.
I'm still amazed that you can get things ranging from Hein's original column on govt. as insurance...to the conjugal visit call...to evidence of advanced civilization 120 million years ago all in the same daily dose of STR. Imagine, the possibility that there was advanced civilization that long ago--something that would be the biggest story EVER if it pans out--and the first place I hear about it is on STR. Keep up the great work!
Keep up your work. It means a great deal to folks you'll never meet.
I've really enjoyed the articles on your site, thanks.
I know how much work it is to keep up a quality site, and I can't imagine how you do it AND hold down a full time job.
You have a nice-looking forum and some interesting discussions.
I checked out STR a while ago, and it's got tons of interesting stuff; I couldn't get off it for a long while.
I have been visiting your site regularly. It looks great and seems to improve on almost a daily basis.
STR is wonderful; I've been enjoying it wholeheartedly. I love the daily quote on your website.
Glad STR is doing so well. It ranks with the best, in my opinion. I especially enjoy an occasional side trip into the strange and humorous we don't see enough of on otherwise serious political sites.
Thanks for a great website--I will support you in whatever ways I can! When I find an exceptional link I'd be happy to pass it along. You do such a great job of finding these stories, that I suspect you don't need much help there...
There's been a ton of great stuff on the Root lately.
And good job with the site, by the way.
It is a great thing you are doing with your site.
You've created a truly Good Thing, and I look forward to seeing more of it in the years to come.
You have a great website. "Build it and they will come." Thoreau would be proud.
I really have enjoyed STR since the day you started it. I first read your articles on LRC and I must say that I can't think of an instance of where I have disagreed with you yet.
I spent a little time at your site yesterday; you have some good reading material.
You have a great website.
While I'm missing STR this weekend it's hit home how much time you must put into it, it's a beautiful site - there isn't a better one on the Internet as far as I'm concerned.
Wish I could do more to help with the STR burden; it's vitally important work and you are doing a tremendous job with it.
STR is my home page now. I've been thinking about what it is that sets STR apart from other sites I like (Lew Rockwell, Surfing the Apocalypse, Etherzone, WND, Common Dreams, FM.net) - it's because you choose such a good mix of important news, fun stuff like images, interesting articles, and excellent commentary, but not too much all at once. Updating daily is essential, of course...The site is really attractive, too--the color scheme is wonderful. It's always interesting.
Thanks so much for providing such a fine forum for anarchist thought.
Great stuff on STR today. I could spend an hour or two just reading/considering the issues every day if I'm not careful. I like the idea of the photo captions. Also, great idea on the essay contest.
You keep a nice balance, and I hope you won't change that. It's a great variety.
I've been visiting your site for 2-3 months and have loved what I've seen.
I love your site and I have a link to it.
It was great to see you writing again, you've done a tremendous job with STR, the only drawback of which is that it's kept you too busy to write at column lenght.
You are doing a great job with the site.
Keep up the outstanding work.
Your on-site writers are really good, and your design is excellent and consistent.
I love the essay contest. I'm going to be a father, and I'm going to home school. Having forums to help the learner express themselves is wonderful.
It seems a pattern, FreeMarket.net, Strike The Root, and the myriad web-zine forums. No longer do we rely on the quotes of Cicero or Paine, we have a hundred new Patrick Henrys every fortnight!
I took the liberty of adding a comment to the photo caption forum today. That feature is really a lot of fun!
This morning I spent some time in the forum. I was pleasantly surprised and liked the tone of your forum better than others I've ventured into. In retrospect, I'd also like to say that one other thing which I really like about STR is the fact that it's relatively female friendly. Thank you for that; although the majority of Root-Strikers and readers may be male, it's nice not to feel vaguely (or conspicuously) out of place as a female.
You're doing a great job over there.
STR is very well done and informative.
I know it's a worn-out phrase to say "I like your site"...but it is true nonetheless. Now, I like your site even more than before...I appreciate your commentary. If you visit my site, you will notice your site is perma-linked. It has been for some time, but now by your words, my having done so has been justified fully. Keep challenging everyone--you have done a very good job so far.
Please keep up the wonderful site.
Saw those Alexa rankings for STR. Impressive! In less than a year. Great job.
I like your site. A lot of interesting thoughts on it.
I finally checked out some postings in the STR forum this morning. Until the STR forum came along, I have never been much of a fan of the forum as a means to communicate ideas. However, STR has excelled in this area as well. I still check STR almost daily for news and other interesting tidbits as well as all of the well-written columns from the Root Strikers. Thanks for all of your effort at STR.
Keep up the great work you're doing at STR!
I've subscribed to your daily mailing and I thoroughly enjoy it. Very good stuff. An excellent daily collection. I am too broke to send money, but I've circulated your material to my friends. Keep up the good work. I certainly appreciate it.
I will have to remember to peek at STR before I send along what I think is breaking news. I pick up a news story about spying and there you have a column ready for me from one of your Root Strikers. Good work, you all.
I don't think I quite realized the global reach STR has. Since I have been announcing my e-mail newsletter at STR, I have received subscribers from Australia, Mexico and I think Israel. Awesome. I think you are doing a lot of great things with STR, but providing an outlet for all us Root Strikers and especially the new, young writers like Amanda Bowen is super.
You've created a marvelous website.
Thank you for a great website. Keep up the good work.
Really outstanding columns today, all of them, but I especially liked Wally's. You've really got a great crew writing for STR--it's an honor to be a Root Striker.
Great job on the site...STR has become part of my morning triumverate (Antiwar.com, LewRockwell, and you...)
Your site is great. I marvel at how you find some of this stuff. I log on onften.
I really do appreciate the STR site. Your site is my first destination when I get online. Thank you!! - and keep up the good work.
Your site is a constant inspiration for the radical in me.
I just joined the forum and the email alert, am enjoying your efforts very much.
Your STR site is awesome.
Thank you for creating such a valuable resource in STR.
I also want you to know what a profound effect that STR has had on the evolution of my political self-education and thinking. I admire the way you cut hew to the bone. Thanks, for all you do.
Keep at it! Love your site!
I am a dedicated STR fan. Have you visited my webpage? My section on anarcho-capitalism prominently mentions STR as one of the essential sites I visit daily.
I love your site and your forum. Informative and entertaining. You've done one helluva job.
I've been visiting STR each day for about six weeks, ever since our LP county chair told me about it. I love reading the essays and relevant news stories.
Your website is simply great!
By the way, I like your site.
Love your site.
I enjoyed reading your articles and information available, God Bless you all and the work you are doing....You all keep up the great work you are doing and don't give up....
Thanks for all that you do to spread the truth and expose evil!
I can only begin to describe to you how cool it is to see my stuff published and discussed by others. Regardless of a person's opinion about my position, it's exciting nonetheless that people are talking about it.
Thank you for another great site that I only started reading about a week ago.
I appreciate the true libertarianism at the heart of your site.
I think you've got a good site that generates a lot of the kind of readership I'm interested in. And the fact that so many pieces are piced up by other sites is great. I'm not talking about just my pieces, either. My wife checks STR every day, as do I. You pick good links, you have good regular writers and some great ones...
. . . please continue making STR as great a site as it is.
You have a great site.
Thank you very much for what you do at STR.
Thanx for your great website--I love the quotes of Thoreau--a "freedom" thinker!
Thanks again for having Strike The Root!
Just know that I think you have a worthy website going....
I read your website daily, and forward many items on to other folks, you really have one of the best news/commentary spots out there. Of course, I've been a Thoreau fan since 7th grade.
I love your site.
In addition to the articles posted, my thanks for the News & Commentary section of your website.
I would also like to add ardent praise to you for your site. It is hands-down the best free market/individualist forum on the net. It is a pleasure to read each day. Keep it up!
Thanks for this site and thanks for making the TRUTH available to me whenever I want it.
You have a great site.
I have a new respect for what you go through to bring STR to the net every day.
This week I turned my receptionist onto your Strike The Root website. She loves it. It was like when you see the light for the first time.
The good news is, it looks like your site is developing a real rep.
Keep up the good work!
You put out a great product.
STR is like an online think tank.
I'm turning quite a few of my co-workers on to The Root, and the daily poll has become quite the conversation piece. It's really been a cool hook.
You have good tastes in columnists.
Love your site.
I think the amazing thing about STR is how it has been consistently solid for (I believe) around 3 years.
Thank you again for the chance to be heard, and for all your tireless and important work.
I love the "looming clouds" motif you have going on every day. Keep it up. It looks good.
I'm proud to be part of STR. I just wanted you to know that. In some ways it is the best anti-government news/commentary site on line. I'm a HUGE fan of LRC and RR, the two of which I think the world is much better off for having, but I think STR is as indispensable as any site, and I am thrilled to contribute in the small way I do.
Thank you for what you do.
STR looks like just about the finest collection of writers I have seen anywhere.
Thanks as always for the work and effort you put into STR.
Every week I find something at your site that knocks me out. You’ve been amazing in your ability to attract quality thought and writing.
Thanks--as always--for your efforts. Like the photos and the choice of quotes lately, too.
Recently found your root cellar. Love it but your photos are the best. I have a suitcase full of similar shots and would GIVE you some if you run out of yours. Keep it up.
Man, I love your site!
You do a great job and service for true Americans.
Hail and congratulations. I've been reading your blog for about 18 months. It's one of my favorites. I first read Walden in 1966 and H.D.T. has been my hero ever since, even though I'm sure he would not want to be anybody's hero. He'll just have to get used to it.
Spectacular root striking today. Great articles....
I support you 100%. Keep up the great work.
I have been a fan of STR for over a year now and I must say "Well Done." You have helped shape my thoughts and ideas. While I don't totally agree with every word of everyone you post, I respect, and moreso admire your courage for doing so. Thank you yet again for your work.
The Root is still kicking ass . . . .
Your site is great....one of the Best I've seen, for exibiting the truth. Keep up the great work. The truth helps more, when it is found, in volume, on a single site . . . . pray that God will Bless your efforts and multiply it with subscribers with available financial assistance, which I am already doing.
Thanks for your great site.
I just enjoy reading the articles on your website.
Thanks for the work you are doing.
Man, as you know, you're graphics and webpage are f---king gorgeous....
Thanks - I do love the site.
By the way, I've never told you, but I love your photography. It's a great part of the STR site!
Thanks for all the great content at STR!!
Your fantastic efforts are much appreciated....
I appreciate STR . . . .
You definitely have one of the best sites I visit! Pray for you and the site daily and give you "two thumbs up", every time I get a chance.
Thanks for providing STR, it is a wonderful site.
Once again, thanks for the great site, I read it daily.
My funds are very limited, but what you are doing is SO very important...
Keep up the good work, your site is the best on the web.
First of all, I want to say how much I enjoy your efforts. I have been receiving your daily email at work and it is the first thing I start my day with. Keep up the good work.
I want to help keep Strike The Root online. It's my morning paper before school.
I really enjoy your site, by the way. You're every bit as good as Rockwell, and one of the few I go to every day.
Thank you for strike-the-root.com - I've been visiting your site for a couple years now.
I found your site via an ALEXA tool bar link a couple of weeks ago and have been reading the articles. You have a lot of great thinkers on there . . . . A site like yours looks like a good one to vent some hostility towards the system that causes my blood to boil.
Your site is a great service and I've got a lot out of it.
It's great to have STR back up again. Thanks for all your hard work.
You're doing a mighty fine thing with your site.
Thanks for everything you do there. I can't tell you how much I have been informed, and how helpful that knowledge is when talking to my friends, family, and contacts.
...I went to a search engine and typed 'What the hell is wrong with America?' and found your site.
I'm proud to be a Root Striker.
STR is truly one of the most valuable resources on the web for freedom lovers, and it's high time I sent you some FRNs. Thanks for all the hard work.
I hope this money can go to keep STR running. It is a great site with a wealth of information and all kinds of nifty stuff.
Thanks for the creation/work on a great site.
This is one of my favorite sites on the web. I've just registered to the forum, too. I don't have much to give, but what I have to give I'll give to you before any other site. Thank you for helping us change the world.
Thanks for running my column on your site. I'm proud to be published on it.
Having read you from the beginning, today, 1/10/05 is one of the best days ever. All of your articles are #1 quality! Keep up the great work.
I am very impressed by STR.
Thanks for taking the time to put STR together.
STR is a site I check each day. I am never disappointed. I love the beautiful scenic pictures on the home page, too. It is a good antidote to the depressing stuff we often have to write about.
I really enjoy your website. A friends sent me to Strike The Root a couple of years ago and I have read it ever since.
You've really built a great site. One of the best on the Web, hands down. Kudos.
You have a really good site here.
I thank you much for the support. I no longer desire to write for ANY sites that don't have a libertarian (small l!) approach. You have a great site, and it agrees with my views!
I know that you must spend a tremendous amount of time and effort spreading the word of liberty, and I greatly appreciate it.
Love the site, keep up the great work!
People are going there (STR) and they are liking what they see.
Love your site. Is there an archive of your quotations-of-the-day? It would be a valuable resource for us like-minded.
I'm a big fan of the site and use your anti-war columns on the forums quite a bit to rebut all the neocons. Keep up the good work.
. . . Original hard core anarchist pieces are needed and STR has been the place to find them.
Just wanted to say thanks for your site. lewrockwell.com, antiwar.com and Strike The Root are the 3 best news/politics/philosophy sites on the web.
Thank you for all you have done to assist humanity, and the inhabitants of this planet.
I really look forward to your web page each day. :-)
Just discovered you--looks like a great libertarian site!
Thanks for providing a clean and well lighted place for the precious ideas of radical individualism.
Keep up the good work with the web site. =)
As I’ve said before, I support STR because I love the idea and reality of your website, and because you have shown a talent for attracting exceptionally good writers and clear thinkers. You’ve also managed to attract enough readers to have an impact. So from my perspective, the money I’ve sent has been well spent and a bargain.
Thanks for such a great website! I use it all the time for my radio show, as well as posting on my website. I think I am the only one doing complete STR articles on a radio show. Thanks for all you do.
I'm a new subscriber in New Zealand and am enjoying Strike The Root and finding out more about Thoreau.
Thanks for the articles, I read them daily. This is the least I can do for a site that I enjoy so much. And I'm glad to know this will be spent on the pursuit of Liberty.
I've been reading STR for ~1 year. I love the essays on the site and would hate to see them disappear. I'm sending you this donation as a thank you. Keep up the good work.
I really burrowed into your site the other day and very humbly think you are doing an incredible job. Many, many thanks.
I stumbled across your site, and was impressed. Also, you definitely have a going forum.
I really appreciate being able to write for you. You're doing a great service getting ideas out that really matter and that are suppressed by the established media. If I ever hit the lotto you'll be able to do STR full time!
I've been meeting more and more self-described market anarchists in political chats lately. Most of them say they read LRC or STR regularly. You're making a difference, I hope you keep it up.
I still check the Root daily, great stuff lately!
THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU DO! You all are great.
STR is an excellent site.
The Editor brings the browser an amazing array of in-house writers and off-site articles where appropriate. His work at Strike The Root is an excellent companion to what Sniegoski and Strakon produce at The Last Ditch. For your bookmarks as well if you like sharp libertarian (anarchist?) thought and observation. Paleos can affirm and respect the Editor's work--and will--just as in the case of the conspirators at The Last Ditch. And occasionally, the paleo Mark Dankof will show up in the pages of both sets of cynics. Strike The Root also features the photographic gems of Pierre-Paul Feyte, whose shots of beautiful landscapes are a welcome tonic after a day of grim news. The pictures are reminiscent of the mindset of Thoreau on Walden Pond.
I just wanted to say thanks for the great quotes you've put up the last several days at STR. They're really profound and thought provoking. Much appreciated!
STR is without a doubt, THE best site of its kind. You and the guest editors never fail to inform and entertain. Keep up the good work.
Thanks for the great site!
I'm a big fan of your site. Please keep up the good work.
Keep up the great work with STR, and thanks for fighting the good fight!
I enjoy the content on your site, the stories and the viewpoints are rare, informative and refreshing in this white-washed corporate media world and I forward your links to friends and colleagues.
I believe that your forum is one of the last bastions of intelligent thought and discourse and look to becoming a contributor of value to that forum.
I love your website. Yours and Mises.org have become my favorite daily websites. Thanks for all your hard work!
I love STR and read it every day.
Great site. I'm loving Thoreau. Today's quote below made me LOL for about five minutes, in fact, I'm still laughing.
Thanks for a fabulous website--I read it every day!
I received my stickers in the mail today, and I am satisfied with your prompt response sending them. Thank you! Also, I am an 18 year-old male (just ripe enough to be drafted) and I just wanted to say that I love the site. It is a very respectable source of meaningful opinions and information. Hope to buy more stickers soon, as well. Thanks again!
. . . by the way, STR is great! You have some awesome writers!
Here in Spain I read almost every day the STR News....You are fresh, nice, interesting and I put the most important Articles in my PC in a special Folder. I only have to say you all; THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Follow against entire world injustice (USA included).
Thanks for allowing me to have a voice on STR. It is still the best liberty website, hands down.
I used to be involved in the big government lie until one day when I stumbled on your site . . . . From that day on I came to the Root to find news stories I didn't see anywhere else. I then started posting in the forums. Your site has been a large inspiration to me and the path I've chosen.
The inspiration I have received from STR, not only from the amazing Root Strikers who write the Op-Eds and the true feeling of freedom of the press, but from the inspiring mind for the site itself Henry David Thoreau has become so deeply rooted in me, I don't know how lost I would be in the lies of our leaders today without them. The state truly is the disease and people like Thoreau and the founders and supporters of this site are indeed the cure!
I think your site is awesome, and I am just cutting my teeth on it. I have read volumes of NT material, and it just didn't seem like enough knowledge to free myself, so your site is very helpful in my continual quest to gain my personal freedom.
Just keep doing what ya be doing. I appreciate the effort and quality of STR and hold you in high regard.
Your site is so well respected, I’m proud to be a part of it.
Keep the dream alive.
I want to thank you for standing for liberty. Your website gives me hope and inspires me to educate those around me.
I love Strike The Root and read it every day. It's like crack, man. Gotta have it.
My friend told me about your site last week and I am now an avid fan and daily reader! Good job! You are NEEDED in this world today. Thanks again for all your hard work. The site is an absolute necessity!
A year ago I stumbled onto Strike The Root, and have enjoyed the voices since then.
Thanks for "Strike The Root." I read it every day.
STR shirt a big hit among the students . . . will be sending for more in near future, other kids want them . . . will be advertising STR all over that school. I'm a little surprised at the number of "youngsters" who regularly read Strike The Root.
This site, is by far, my favorite website on the internet. I have been reading STR for years, and will continue to make this site my first stop every time I get online. Congratulations to everyone who makes STR what it is!
I have just found STR and appreciate it so very much.
Your newsletter is one of the most important vehicles for knowledge available on the internet.
Strike The Root is the perhaps the best defined libertarian site on the web today. Please keep up your efforts. I realize that this is your hobby. You are providing a site that allows a diversity of libertarian opinion and your efforts have given me great encouragement, as an old man new to libertarian thought. Please keep up your battle. You are waging a noble fight on behalf of freedom and liberty.
I hope to be donating again, soon. I am not a rich fellow, but I cannot find a more worthy cause than your site. Not only has it been the basis of my growth as a late-birth libertarian, but it provides the encouragement and motivation to keep me fighting the good fight. I proudly fly your bumper stickers on the back of my truck. I can tell that they strike home. Keep striving.
I congratulate all you for the excellent site you have created.
I hope to see STR well into the future.
I appreciate your work and efforts and I am glad to help. Keep up the good work. Your efforts are very much appreciated.
Your site has been a regular favorite of mine for a couple years now.
I'm still lovin' the read, it's one of 5 sources I go to DAILY! Thank you for all you do.
Thanks again for STR. It's one of my daily "must-read" sites.
You are one of the most honestly opened minded people I know.
I love STR. I've visited many anarcho/libertarian sites on the net, and I am happy to report that as far as I'm concerned, STR is tops. This site gives me hope, hope that other like-minded people exist in a country, and world, of increasing controls on individual sovereignty. The articles, the Thoreau quotes, and the photo blogs elevate my day. Thank you.
Thanks so much for your daily report. I passed many of the links onto others.
I just wanted to comment on your website....I love it! Everything about it. Thank you for your hard work.
I appreciate your website. THANK YOU.
Great website. I actually like it a little better than LRC--and that's saying a lot!
I should be the one paying you for the great service you give us!
Yours is by far my favorite website. Thanks for the great work.
I would like to thank you for the site. It's one of the few I check frequently.
Thanks for the great website.
Thank you for a great year of STR reading. Honestly, STR is the first page I go to when I log on. Some sites nail liberty so well in one way or another, and then turn around and promote the state in some other way. It's always a relief for me to see that the most ruthless standards for freedom upheld across the board is the rule of thumb at STR.
I want to thank you for all your fantastic work on the website, it's really an online sanctuary in contrast to the typical media hubbub and government double-speak.
I love the new quotes. I read the quotes every day, and was disappointed when I read there wouldn't be any more Thoreau quotes. But when I read further down and saw Edward Abbey's name, I wasn't quite as disappointed as I thought. I can remember when I first read Desert Solitaire and The Monkey Wrench Gang. He's right up STR's alley, so to speak. You and your gang are doing a great job with the website. You're giving all of us a lot of food for thought! Appreciative and grateful for your efforts in furthering important ideas.
Your site is worth every penny.
I really enjoy Strike The Root. The variety and quality of writing is excellent.
Your site is the coolest! I forward more off STR than from anywhere! GOOD JOB!
Congratulations and thanks for your tremendous website.
Keep up the good work and the interesting articles!
Strike The Root rules!
I was amazed at both the quantity and quality of feedback I got today from your readers.
I love your site and thank you for it.
Love the site, if this is only a hobby, I am impressed.
I’ve been reading Strike The Root for a couple of years now. I am sorry it has taken me this long to tell you how brilliant your work is. You’ve brought together some great articles from many great thinkers. Bravo! I beg of you, keep up the fantastic work. There are so few sources with writings that make an attempt to THINK, rather than ramble off the same old garbage that everyone else is talking/writing about.
Your site is awesome!
Thanks for all your hard work at STR.
I love STR and wish to help support your efforts. Keep up the GREAT work.
Keep up the good work. You have one of the best sites on the internet!
Strike The Root is the best website on the internet right now in my opinion. It is certainly my favorite.
I've been reading STR for a few years and it has been influential in my development. I've also shared it with others in an effort to introduce them to the freedom philosophy. Thank you!
STR is still one of the best!
Thank you for running the best libertarian/anti-state site on the internet.
I really enjoy “Strike The Root.”
I enjoy the site, and I read it every day.
Thanks for the great website. I check in every day and read some of the articles.
Your website contains vital reading that is available to potentially millions of minds.
Thanks for all your hard work. You've helped open a whole new world of thought.
You do a great job advancing liberty!
The site is and has been great...keep it up.
I really enjoy your offerings.
I've moved over the last several years, from being what I thought was a conservative (actually and unknowingly a neocon), to being a free market anarchist, thanks in part to Antiwar.com, LewRockwell.com, and now Strike-the-Root.com. I actually started with NRO (I know, I know), then moved to WND (slightly better), all the way on up to your site, LysanderSpooner.com, and Lew Rockwell's all on a daily basis....
I went out and pulled a lever for Ron Paul today even though I think that:
a) The election is fixed so that one or the other of the ruling elite from either party is guaranteed to win,
b) even if Paul did win, the ruling elite would not leave him in place for long, and
c) voting should indeed generally be considered as an act of violence (although I think that if a vote is cast for a true libertarian, it may very well be only an act of violence against the state).
I reached this decision only after reading "The Reality of Self-Defense Voting" by Bob Jackson. However, I am grateful for the input of Per Bylund, Jim Davies, and Wendy McElroy among others, in helping me to see the error of my ways, and the true nature of voting. It has been a difficult decision, and I will be forever reminded of the seriousness of what I am doing should I ever go to the polls again. Unless it is clear that the man I'm voting for is intent on tearing down coercive action on the part of any earthly government, I will not contribute. Even so, I may never contribute again, if upon reading further at your site I determine that the Ron Pauls of this world are misguided.
Once again, thank you for all you do. I am exceedingly grateful that I had the opportunity to be awakened, if government should ever get its hands on the Internet and silence websites like yours. You've helped at least one person to turn around.
You should be proud of STR. You've done good.
I always look forward to reading your "Strike The Root" letters every day and I always check out a few of the links that you have in letter.
Only wish for the time to read your site cover to cover daily. You are appreciated.
Thanks for the outstanding website!!!
Truly appreciate your work and receiving the STR update emails.
I'd just like to say that I've been visiting STR regularly ever since I first heard about it almost two years ago and it's been my home page for almost a year. Thank you for everything you've done for the cause of liberty.
I love your brief summary and often witty comments about the daily articles.
Been a reader of STR for around a year now. I really enjoy the content, and the Image Review at the blog always cracks me up. Thanks for helping point me in the direction of freedom.
I would like to thank you for the excellent website you have! Strike The Root is the best hands down. Keep up the good work and looking forward to reading more fascinating articles.
Your website is superb. I hope in these times, the ideas can gain acceptance.
It makes me feel good to be part of a like minded community so large. Truly a part of something. Without having to be a part of something. Keep those pens (keyboards) focused on the Truth. We're out there.
STR is indispensable.
GREAT SITE. I send everyone I meet with questions to STR for the truth.
You do a great job putting the site together daily.
Love your website.
Thanks for your great website!
I really enjoy and appreciate what you do at Strike The Root. I think it is a great resource for people interested in exploring the ideas of market anarchy.
Love the site, by the way. It's nice to be able to go somewhere and read opinions that aren't merely apologies for one sort of statism or another.
The venue you've provided with STR is one of the few beacons of liberty. It's important and hopefully will yield benefits by exposing people to the futility of states and governments in general. It's been an honor to be a contributor.
Absolutely love your site (was just turned onto it).
I love the idea of your site, keep up the great work and good luck.
I have been reading the articles on STR for a few years now and enjoy them a lot, Thank you for taking the time and effort to have them posted.
STR consistently has great links and articles -- it's my favorite site.
Your site has some of the best articles on the true concept of liberty and our freedom.
I was perusing your site's quotes page, and I "thoreauly" enjoyed it.
Very interesting website and very interesting articles....
STR has been one of my favorite sites for years.
Fantastic site, I've been browsing it for quite some time now and feel quite at home on it. Great articles and truer words have never been spoken in relation to most of its content.
