Freedom Says. Tyranny says.

Will the deaths of the revolutionary soldiers, American soldiers since and the sacrifices of so many over generations be honored by America. See the difference between freedom and tyranny and then decide what you will do.

My Fellow Americans,

I compiled these quotes (below) on Freedom and Tyranny in 2008 for Independence Day.  Now, more than ever we need to remember the value of limited government, individual liberty and all our founding  principles. As government grows and takes away our liberty, there will come a point when it disappears for at least a generation and will lead to misery for billions on the planet – for decades. Our government can’t continue to usurp our freedoms of  speech, religion, assembly, free enterprise, self-defense and those other  inalienable rights granted by “the Laws of Nature or Nature’s God”.  Use  these freedoms now in peace so you will never have to use them at the risk of your life in the future.  Remember our Founding Principles and demand their return.

Freedom
of the individual is at the core of the founding of America.  As we
celebrate the recognition and claiming of our right to individual freedom,  consider the following observations on Freedom versus Tyranny.  Our country appears on the cusp of abandoning the primacy of individual freedom in favor of the tyranny that comes from the empowerment of others over their own lives.  Justifications of achieving “collective good” and  “social justice” are other ways of describing the antithesis of Freedom: Socialism.

Freedom
Says….

Declaration of Independence

July 4, 1776

When, in the
course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political
bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers
of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and
of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind
requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the
separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that
all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with
certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit
of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among
men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That
whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the
right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new
government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its
powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety
and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long
established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and
accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to
suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing
the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce
them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw
off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
–Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the
necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government.
The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated
injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an
absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to
a candid world.

He has refused his assent to laws, the most
wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of
immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till
his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly
neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation
of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right
of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and
formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at
places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their
public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with
his measures.

He has dissolved representative houses
repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of
the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such
dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers,
incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their
exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of
invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavored to prevent the population of
these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of
foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and
raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

He has obstructed the administration of
justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

He has made judges dependent on his will alone,
for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their
salaries.

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and
sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their
substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace,
standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

He has affected to render the military
independent of and superior to civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a
jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws;
giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops
among us:

For protecting them, by mock trial, from
punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of
these states:

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the
world:

For imposing taxes on us without our consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits
of trial by jury:

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for
pretended offenses:

For abolishing the free system of English laws in
a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and
enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit
instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:

For taking away our charters, abolishing our
most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:

For suspending our own legislatures, and
declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases
whatsoever.

He has abdicated government here, by declaring
us out of his protection and waging war against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts,
burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large armies of
foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny,
already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled
in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized
nation.

He has constrained our fellow citizens taken
captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the
executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their
hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst
us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless
Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction
of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these oppressions we have
petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have
been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus
marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a
free people.

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our
British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their
legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded
them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have
appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them
by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would
inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been
deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore,
acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as
we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.

We, therefore, the representatives of the
United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the
Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the
name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly
publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be
free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to
the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the
state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as
free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude
peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and
things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this
declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we
mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Tyranny
says…

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

Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty.

Ronald Reagan

 “Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a
monarchy?”    ——-
“A republic if you can keep it”

Benjamin Franklin

 

Democracy and socialism have nothing in
common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy
seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and
servitude.

Alexis de Tocqueville

 

The basis of a democratic state is liberty.

Aristotle

 

Socialism in general has a record of failure  so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.

Thomas Sowell

 

That government is best which governs the least, because its  people discipline themselves

Thomas Jefferson

 

The message is clear, if we lose our love of liberty and our manners become corrupt, character is lost and so is the Republic.

Ron Paul

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter, and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed it ourselves.

Abraham Lincoln

I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice
is no virtue!

Barry Goldwater

It is easier to find people fit to govern themselves than people to govern others. Every man is the best, the most responsible, judge of his own advantage.

Lord Acton

Liberty means responsibility.
That is why most men dread it.

George Bernard Shaw

 

Liberty is not a means to a higher political end. It is itself the highest political end.

Lord Acton

Today, in the world of freedom, the proudest boast is “Ich bin ein Berliner.”

John F Kennedy at the Berlin Wall

Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!

Ronald Reagan

Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.

Albert Einstein

 

But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can
never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.

John Adams

No man in his senses can hesitate in choosing to be free, rather
than a slave.

Alexander Hamilton

 

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected,
and handed on for them to do the same.

Ronald Reagan

 

No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government
bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth!

Ronald Reagan

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 rights of the individual.

Thomas Jefferson

 

 Capitalism is what people do if you leavethem alone.

Kenneth Minogue, Professor, London School of Economics

 

The vicissitudes of history, however, have not dissuaded them from their earnest search for a “third way”
between socialism and capitalism, namely socialism.

Father Richard John Neuhaus

I was guilty of judging
capitalism by its operations and socialism by its hopes and aspirations;
capitalism by its works and socialism by its literature.

Sidney Hook

 …if we wish to preserve a free society, it is essential that we recognize
that the desirability of a particular object is not sufficient justification
for the use of coercion.”

“Coercion occurs when one man’s actions are made to serve another man’s will, not for his own but for the other’s purpose.”

Friedrich A. Hayek

Do not ever say that the desire to “do good” by force
is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives.

Ayn Rand

Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if
it stops moving, subsidize it.

Ronald Reagan

Government always finds a need for whatever money it gets.

Ronald Reagan

Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of
rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and
the smallest minority on earth is the individual).

Ayn Rand

It is bad to be oppressed by a minority, but it is worse to be
oppressed by a majority. For there is a reserve of latent power in the masses
which, if it is called into play, the minority can seldom resist. But from the
absolute will of an entire people there is no appeal, no redemption, no
refuge but treason.

Lord Acton

 

Governments tend not to solve problems, only to rearrange them.

Ronald Reagan

 

Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect
liberty when the government’s purposes are beneficent… the greatest dangers
to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but
without understanding.

Justice Louis Brandeis

 

The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem
is that government spends too much.

Ronald Reagan

 

A casual acceptance of the principle behind high taxation, with
an income tax and an inheritance tax, is incompatible with a principled
belief in a true Republic.

Ron Paul

 

A government can be compared to our lungs. Our lungs are best
when we don’t realize they are helping us breathe. It is when we are
constantly aware of our lungs that we know they have come down with an
illness.

Lao-Tzu

 

I have little interest in streamlining government or making it
more efficient for I mean to reduce its size.

Barry Goldwater

 

Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the
problem.

Ronald Reagan

 

How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx
and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who
understands Marx and Lenin.

Ronald Reagan

 

If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee
an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other.

Carl Schurz

 

I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live
for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

Ayn Rand

Run for your life from any man who tells you that money is evil.
That sentence is the leper’s bell of an approaching looter.

Ayn Rand

If I had to give a definition of capitalism I
would say: the process whereby American girls turn into American women.

Christopher Hampton

 

What kind of society isn’t structured on greed? The problem of
social organization is how to set up an arrangement under which greed will do
the least harm; capitalism is that kind of a system.

Milton Friedman

 

Contrary to the vulgar belief that men are motivated primarily
by materialistic considerations, we now see the capitalist system being  discredited and destroyed all over the world, even though this system has
given men the greatest material comforts.

Ayn Rand

 

It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or
the baker, that we can expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest.

Adam Smith on social benefits of capitalism

 

By directing that industry in such a manner as its produce may
be of greatest value, he intends only his own gain, and he is … led by an  invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention.

Adam Smith

 

Despite a voluminous and often fervent literature on
“income distribution,” the cold fact is that most income is not
distributed: It is earned.”

Thomas Sowell

 

 

Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep
it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom?
Material abundance without character is the path of destruction.

Thomas Jefferson

As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This
expresses my idea of democracy. Abraham Lincoln

Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they
are the people’s liberty’s teeth.

George Washington

 

Over grown military establishments are under any form of
government inauspicious to liberty, and are to be regarded as particularly
hostile to republican liberty.

George Washington

 

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep
and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in
government.

Thomas Jefferson

 

Live Free or Die

New Hampshire State Motto

 

 

The only security of all is in a
free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted
freely to be expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to. It is
necessary, to keep the waters pure.

Thomas Jefferson

 

Truth : the most deadly weapon
ever discovered by humanity. Capable of destroying entire perceptual sets,
cultures, and realities. Outlawed by all governments everywhere. Possession
is normally punishable by death.

Richard Childers

 

The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is besides
the point. Inconvenience does not absolve the government of its obligation to
tolerate speech.

Justice Anthony Kennedy

 

It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen
from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the
Government from falling into error.

Judge Robert H. Jackson

 

 

“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 exercise
their revolutionary right to overthrow it.

Abraham Lincoln

We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the
courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who
pervert the Constitution. Abraham Lincoln

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of
blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

Winston Churchill

 

History suggests that capitalism is a necessary condition for
political freedom.

Milton Freedman

 

Contrary to the vulgar belief that men are motivated primarily
by materialistic considerations, we now see the capitalist system being
discredited and destroyed all over the world, even though this system has
given men the greatest material comforts.

Ayn Rand

 

It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen
from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the
Government from falling into error.

Judge Robert H. Jackson

  

When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the
people fear the government, there is tyranny.

Thomas Jefferson

 

Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The
savage’s whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe.
Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.

Ayn Rand

 

It only stands to reason that where there’s sacrifice, there’s
someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there’s service, there is
someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of
slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.

Ayn Rand

 

What county can preserve its
liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that its people
preserve the spirit of resistance.

Thomas Jefferson

 

The only power any government has is the power to crack down on
criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares
so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live
without breaking laws.

Ayn Rand

Just as man can’t exist without his body, so no rights can exist
without the right to translate one’s rights into reality, to think, to work
and keep the results, which means: the right of property.

Ayn Rand

 

To know what you prefer instead of humbly saying Amen to what
the world tells you you ought to prefer, is to have kept your soul alive.

Robert Louis Stevenson

 

I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too
much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

Thomas Jefferson

 

 

The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to
stop me.

Ayn Rand

Those
willing to give up a little liberty for a little security deserve neither
security nor liberty. Benjamin Franklin

Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of
freedom.

John Adams

 

 

There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits
of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder.

Ronald Reagan

 

Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your
life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof
of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty
to the achievement of your values.

Ayn Rand

 

From the smallest necessity to the highest religious
abstraction, from the wheel to the skyscraper, everything we are and
everything we have comes from one attribute of man – the function of his
reasoning mind.

Ayn Rand

 

A government is the most dangerous threat to man’s rights: it
holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed
victims.

Ayn Rand

As nightfall does not come at
once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when
everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we
all must be most aware of change in the air however slight lest we become
unwitting victims of the darkness.

admitted, the cause for doubting one’s own right is laid.

Adolf Hitler

 

 

Literature must become party literature. Down with unpartisan
litterateurs! Down with the superman of literature! Literature must become a
part of the general cause of the proletariat.

small ones.

skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even
heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise.

truth that matters, but victory.

Methods, art and processes to employ for the interrogation of heretics,
believers (followers of heretics) and their accomplices.

Those who are merely under the suspicion of heresy shall be
smitten with the sword of anathema and shunned by everyone until they make
suitable amends, unless they prove their own innocence…If they have persisted
in their excommunication for one year, they shall be condemned as heretics.

Fourth Lateran Council Canon (1215) leading to the inquisition.

 

But to want to affirm that the Sun in very truth is at the
centre of the universe…is a very dangerous attitude and one calculated not
only to arouse all Scholastic philosophers and theologians but also to injure
our holy faith by contradicting the Scriptures.

They have invented a myth that Jews were massacred and place
this above God, religions and the prophets.

Once
vigorous measures appear to be the only means left of bringing the Americans
to a due submission to the mother country, the colonies will submit.

King George III

 

An extensive empire must be supported by a refined system of
policy and oppression: in the centre, an absolute power, prompt in action and
rich in resources; a swift and easy communication with the extreme parts;
fortifications to check the first effort of rebellion; a regular
administration to protect and punish; and a well-disciplined army to inspire
fear without provoking discontent and despair.

Edward Gibbon, 1788 “The Decline and fall of the Roman
Empire”.  Thought an Allegory of British empire.

 

 

To the King alone belongs the sovereign power in his
kingdom.  He is accountable to God alone for the exercise of supreme
power.  The bond which unites the king and the nation is indissoluble by
its very nature.

Chretien-Francois de Lamoignon, minister of Louis XVI.

 

I have come too late; men are too enlightened; there is nothing
great left to do….look at Alexander…proclaimed to people as son of Jupiter…if
I declared myself today the son of the eternal Father, there is no fishwife
who would not hiss at me….

Napolean day after he crowned himself Emperor, 1804.

 

So he too is nothing but a man.  Now he also will trample
all human rights underfoot, and only pander to his own ambition; he will
place himself above everyone else and become a tyrant.

Ludwig von Beethoven on hearing that Napoleon had declared
himself emperor.

 

 

The universities are available only to those who share my
revolutionary beliefs.

Fidel Castro

 

Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik
forever.

Vladimir Lenin

 

If
Socialism can only be realized when the intellectual development of all the
people permits it, then we shall not see Socialism for at least five hundred
years.

Vladimir Lenin

 

So I propose the creation of a non-partisan Democracy
Endowment….. Let me be clear: this is a non-partisan endowment for our common
democracy. You can’t give to any one party; you can’t give to any one
candidate.

Al Gore

 

The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which
particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and
repress them.

Karl Marx

 

 

Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.

Mao Tse-Tung

 

This is the principle reason why Communist cadres at all levels
resort to desperate, barbaric practices of forcing artificial abortion and
sterilization, and killing infants…In 1983, all women who had just given
birth to their second child were sterilized. Those who resisted were taken to
the township and locked up for several days

Harry Wu, Testimony to Congress 2001

 

It costs nothing to ensure that patients see a doctor within two
