Don’t wait to go on defense, because it’s nearly impossible to get things undone rather than stopping them from being done in the first place. Act offensively or proactively and fight for your right to liberty (which is not granted to you by the government, but is yours naturally).
You see, the government and many of their politicians would like you to think that whatever liberty you have is yours because they allowed you to have it. That is pure BS. It’s yours BEFORE they try and take it away. And they have been trying… and succeeding.
I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.
When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.
The god who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time.
What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?
The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all.
The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add “within the limits of the law,” because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual.
The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.
I wish I could say that I said all those things…
Those are quotes from Thomas Jefferson, who definitely had it right. They sure still ring true today.
How about the last quote, “The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground”?! This sure is what has been happening in America lately. No doubt about that.
People have been relinquishing their liberties with frightful and ever increasing speed. The liberty reduction curve has gone parabolic. All in the name of ‘terrorism’ it seems. We all went willingly following 9/11, but here we are 11 years later and we are seeing executive order after order, and laws upon laws further diminishing our freedoms as free individuals.
I sense in my bones that something is going down, and that the guberment is getting their ducks in a row. No, I’m not paranoid. I’m a skeptical person, who can add 2+2… My gut tells me that the end game is nearing regarding the world economic condition (nations and their banksters). Since it is all tied together in a corrupt web of electronic bets and counter-bets, that a rapid collapse domino effect could finish it all. A best case scenario will be a somewhat controlled crash landing – but the real crash is still to come.
In the mean time, we can fight for our rights for liberty by raising awareness and talking about any attempts at takeaway to our friends and family whenever you hear about a story or news report as such (it will mostly come from the alternative news media – not the main stream who only wants you to focus on fluff).
When you hear or read something that doesn’t sound quite right to you (e.g. the Dept. of Homeland Security buying 450 million rounds of ammunition, or the NSA building the world’s largest spy center in Utah to track Americans, or that congress is introducing an amendment to outlaw self defense), check it out for yourself. Check multiple sources and dig for the source of the original information. The main stream will NOT report on such things. It is up to you to find and expose the truth as to what is going on. Sure, there will be some alternative news that turns out to be stretched way out of reality, but there is an alarming amount of reality as to what has been going on too.
When you find a truth that is stripping more of your liberty, do not accept it or the excuse that is used. Fight back. Even though I suspect that most of us don’t have much hope in the results of calling or writing our representatives, but, if we do not, then we are doing nothing within the system to make a difference. Do it anyway. Even if it seems futile. Plus, talk about it with others. If we keep to ourselves, we are to blame when our liberty is stripped from us.
