Give me Liberty or give me Death!

Prosperity and security will not last long where there is no liberty for the individual. Only when the state protects the rights of the individual will the individuals be able to protect the state from invasion from outside enemies. When the state takes the away the rights of the individual in the name of providing prosperity and protecting security, it creates a state not worth saving and incapable of prosperity. You can’t protect freedom by taking it away from the people. There is no enemy so great we must sacrifice liberty and individual freedom to conquer it. In fact, our freedom from state intrusion is our greatest defense against all foes. The greatest threat to our freedom, prosperity and security are those who would trade our individual rights for false claims of protection and prosperity of stronger central government. – The Patriot Underground

What's the point?

Patriot,

Have you noticed that some people just can't get it? (Not that they won't, they really *can't*.)

When you try to explain this stuff to them, their eyes glaze over and they take on a Homer-Simpson-drooling-over-beer expression.

Someday, when they are all wondering how the Amero got into their pockets, why there are checkpoints at the edge of every town and why they have to let the uniformed guard scan their implanted GPS microchip before they are cleared to go, they'll remember people like us who tried to warn them...maybe.
