Happy Independence Day!
Tuesday, July 04, 2006
Being the 4th of July, the day the Declaration of Independence was signed with the intent to establish the clear reasons and just cause for the separation of the colonies from the government of England, I thought I would just post some of my favorite quotes from our Founding Fathers. My hope is that those who read these quotes can see the importance of these noble words and thus correct (within your own mind) the course of the current mainstream thinking which seems to be infecting the population like an epidemic. It is very frightening to me that our country teeters away from the liberty and freedom that we have so long fought to ensure with a misguided passion to protect life while at the same time causing death to liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

"That there are men in all countries who get their living by war, and by keeping up the quarrels of Nations, is as shocking as it is true; but when those who are concerned in the government of a country make it their study to sow discord, and cultivate prejudices among Nations, it becomes the more unpardonable."

Thomas Paine

"Liberty, once lost, is lost forever."

John Adams

"I am conscious that an equal division of property is impracticable. But the consequences of this enormous inequality producing so much misery to the bulk of mankind, legislators cannot invent too many devices for sub-dividing property, only taking care to let their subdivision go hand in hand with the natural affections of the human mind."

Thomas Jefferson

"All human situations have their inconveniences. We feel those of the present but neither see nor feel those of the future; and hence we often make troublesome changes without amendment, and frequently for the worse."

Benjamin Franklin

"No man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burdened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer, on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge, or affect their civil capacities."

Thomas Jefferson

"There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty."

John Adams

"The two greatest obstacles to democracy in the United States are, first, the widespread delusion among the poor that we have a democracy, and second, the chronic terror among the rich, lest we get it."
