“No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.”
― Samuel Adams"Our Rights DO NOT come from a written document. WE have rights because of the nature of our creation, under Natural Law. Our Rights come from our Creator. Government did NOT create us."
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.""Voting does not secure your Rights. Voting is the minimum obligation as a member of a Constitutional Republic. Eternal vigilance is required to secure your rights, meaning every single day stand for Liberty, educating children to stand for Liberty. WE don't obey men, WE obey God."
"Give me liberty, or give me death!" is a quotation attributed to Patrick Henry.Our rights to keep and bear arms, is not about hunting. It is to protect ourselves against criminals (all of criminals). Our right to survival hinges on this right to keep arms.
