Here are some quotes from the men that passed down to us this wonderful experiment in self-governance. Read them. Think upon them. Share them. Then ask yourself, what they would think about this government and the state of our nation today. When you think that you know the answer then ask yourself, what you are doing about it?
“Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet, that did not commit suicide.”
“The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending against all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.”
“I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.”
“If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government.”
“We have all one common cause; let it, therefore, be our only contest, who shall most contribute to the security of the liberties of America.”
“I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
“The policy of American government is to leave its citizens free, neither restraining them nor aiding them in their pursuits.”
“A sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government.”
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.”
To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”
-Richard Henry Lee, former President of the Continental Congress
Will you honor me by deciding to take a Stand in the Arena with me this election cycle? To take that stand and restore government to its constitutionally limited role?
