Freedom and Gun Rights Quotes - Part 5
"We, and all others who believe in freedom as deeply as we do, would rather die on our feet than live on our knees."
"He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself."
"The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will,is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral,is not a sufficient warrant."
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your consul, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you; and may posterity forget ye were our countrymen."
"The U.S. Constitution poses no threat to our system of government."
"The only organized political party with a Christian vision of morality is the Libertarian Party."
"The evils of tyranny are rarely seen but by him who resists it."
"The most difficult struggle of all is the one within ourselves. Let us not get accustomed and adjusted to these conditions. The one who adjusts ceases to discriminate between good and evil. He becomes a slave in body and soul. Whatever may happen to you, remember always: Don't adjust! Revolt against the reality!"
"I have spent all my life under a Communist regime, and I will tell you that a society without any objective legal scale is a terrible one indeed. But a society with no other scale but the legal one is not quite worthy of man either."
"Still if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
"I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed in their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is "needed" before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents' "interests," I shall reply that I was informed their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can."
"This year will go down in history. For the first time a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future."
"In starting and waging a war it is not right that matters, but victory."
"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."
"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."
"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, build(ing) a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
"Those who suppress freedom always do so in the name of law and order."
"Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want rain without thunder and lightning."
"This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it."
"Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgement and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state."
"I call that mind free which jealously guards its intellectual rights and powers, which calls no man master, which does not content itself with a passive or hereditary faith, which opens itself to light whencesoever it may come, which receives new truth as an angel from Heaven."
"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
"A regime, an established order, is rarely overthrown by a revolutionary movement; usually a regime collapses of its own weakness and corruption and then a revolutionary movement enters among the ruins and takes over the powers that have become vacant."
"Government is, or ought to be, instituted for the common benefit and security of the people, nation or community; whenever any government shall be found inadequate or contrary to these purposes, a majority of the community hath an indubitable, unalienable, indefeasible right, to reform, alter, or abolish it, in such manner as shall be judged most conducive to the public Weal."
"Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels- men and women who dared to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, we may never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion."
"Those who give the first shock to a state are the first overwhelmed in its ruin; the fruits of public commotion are seldom enjoyed by him who was the first mover; he only beats the water for another's net."
"Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience, and are left to the common refuge which God hath provided for all men against force and violence."
"The most sensible and jealous people are so little attentive to government that there are no instances of resistance until repeated, multiplied oppressions have placed it beyond a doubt that their rulers had formed settled plans to deprive them of their liberties; not to oppress an individual or a few, but to break down the fences of a free constitution, and deprive the people at large of all share in the government, and all the checks by which it is limited."
"A reform is a correction of abuses; a revolution is a transfer of power."
"The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion."
"The bigger a state becomes the more liberty diminishes."
"Whenever the ends of government are perverted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all other means of redress are ineffectual, the people may, and of a right ought to reform the old, or establish a new government; the doctrine of non-resistance against arbitrary power and oppression is absurd, slavish and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind."
"The danger to a free society is not the guns owned by the citizens but an unconstrained government.... An armed society is a self-governing society, just as a disarmed people are vulnerable to arbitrary power of every kind."
"An experiment in blame It amazes me how far to the left of "horse sense" some people are. To prove this, I conducted an experiment. I placed an air rifle on the living room floor, then set up a video camera to observe its actions. After several hours, the evidence was conclusive. My children never went near the gun. Not once did the gun go on a shooting spree. It did not sell itself to a minor or convicted felon. Do you think maybe criminals are to blame for gun-related crimes?"

"The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the others."
"What part of 'shall not be infringed' do you NOT understand?"
"Guns have only two enemies; rust and politicians."
"When you remove the people's right to bear arms, you create slaves."
"The American Revolution would never have happened with gun control."
"…… 'the fundamental principle that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any particular individual citizen.' The duty to provide public services is owed to the public at large, and, absent a special relationship between the police and an individual, no specific legal duty exists."
