HOW & WHY MAY WE PROTECT LIBERTY?

It takes a unified effort of the American people to be ever-vigilant that our Government does not become the very threat to our Liberty which it was instituted to protect. Abraham Lincoln said, “United we stand, divided we fall.” No matter what is your particular Liberty issue of choice, we must not let the elements of “divide & conquer” among us (especially in Government) divide Americans in such a way that we are willing to sacrifice Liberty on the altar of The Will To Power. Protecting the Liberty of your neighbor to say and do things with which you do not agree is paramount to protecting your own Liberty as well. An infringement on your neighbors’ Liberty with which you agree will eventually be the same detriment to whatever Liberty it is you hold so dear for yourself. We are all equal under the Law, and Liberty must be equally protected.

“Liberty can not be preserved without a general knowledge among the people.”

   – John Adams, 2nd President of the United States

“Political Liberty is to be found only in moderate Governments.”

   – Charles De Montesquieu, 18th Century French Jurist & Philosopher

“The natural progress of things is for Liberty to yield and Government to gain ground.”

   – Thomas Jefferson, 3rd President of the United States

“The true danger is when Liberty is nibbled away, for expedience, and by parts.”

   – Edmund Burke, American Revolutionary

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad Government results from too much Government.”

  – Thomas Jefferson

“Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.”

   – Thomas Paine, American Revolutionary

“The spirit of resistance to Government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.”

   – Thomas Jefferson

“Disobedience is the true foundation of Liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”

   – Henry David Thoreau, American author and activist

“When the people fear their Government, there is Tyranny; when the Government fears the people, there is Liberty.”

   – Thomas Jefferson

“Rebellion against Tyrants is obedience to God.”

   – Benjamin Franklin, American Revolutionary

“One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.”

   – Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., American Civil Rights Activist & Leader

“The Right to revolt has sources deep in our history.”

   – William O. Douglas, Former U.S. Supreme Court Justice

“Eternal vigilance is the price of Liberty.”

   – Thomas Jefferson

“The condition upon which God hath given Liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he breaks, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime, and the punishment of his guilt.”

   – John Curran, 18th Century Irish Lawyer/Politician

“Liberty is always unfinished business.”

   – ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union)

“A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.”

   – Edward Abbey, American Activist

The Ron Paul r3VOLution continues. For as long as there are governments, there will be a need for vigilant watchmen to stand between corrupt bureaucracies and our individual liberties.

    Reblogged this on Combat Veterans for Ron Paul and commented:

    Liberty or Death!

  2. Really timely and nicely stated, Adam. The usurpers understand that on at least one level the game’s up for them, and people are waking up in droves to their multigenerational scams that have been so destructive to America. They do not like this, and as you say are really piling on the divide-and-conquer tactics in a desperate effort to stave off their fall.

    They are certainly sinking into the tar pits, but like the huge dying dinosaurs can still cause a lot of damage in their flailing about on their way. We have to be on guard so that none of their cheap tricks will distract us from the prize of our recovered liberties nor injure us with their two-bit schemes.

    Your included quotes from those notables is a great reinforcement for that watchful mindset. Eternal vigilance IS indeed the price of liberty…thank you!

  3. Wonderful Post! The quotes speak for themselves. Ron Paul is a man I truly admire but more then that a man that I trust.
