... then the Iraqi insurgents would be free?

    The slave, the compliant, and the obedient, by historical precidence only complains. It is the active free that "does" strike the first blow.

    A statement made by a very liberal ( nadiyb ) mind set. grandee, some times a tyrant. When considering the who, what and where of the man, we find that these types of liberals speak on behalf of freedom, to express their brand of liberality. And can be likened unto the churl, a vile people. His heart will work iniquity, to practice hypocrisy. The instruments also of the churl are evil. They destroy the poor with lying words. Even when the poor are right. But the liberal devise liberal things, and by liberal things shall he stand.
    The enemy within our ranks.
    But with our liberality as ( brakah ), we are blessed with prosperity. Freedom with moral constraint. Living not as slave but as set at liberty ( eleutheria ) . The phraseology is that of manumission from slavery, which among the Greeks was effected by a legal fiction, according to which the manumitted slave was purchased by a god ; as the slave could not provide the money, the master paid it into the temple treasury in the presence of the slave, a document being drawn up containing the words " For Freedom " . No one could enslave him again, as he was the property of the god. Hence the word Apeleutheros, " a freed man ". The word is also translated " Liberty".

    Hence our call upon the God of Nature, And Divine Providence. As per our Declaration of Independence. We being the property of God and not of man !

    Yes Mike, but with the active free it must be a sure blow.
    We as a Nation under God, are set at Liberty at our pleasure. It is termed ( Drowr ) so clear and pure. Also termed (Chophshiy ), exempt from bondage, Tax, or care. This experiment carried out thousands or years ago. As in ref : to Jerimiah 34:8 thru 16. The ancient doctrine of Liberty. Chophshiy. put in place for our reference. Written for our admonition and learning.
    Let Freedom and Liberty Ring.
    Five stars for common sense.

    There is no freedom without the responsibility to maintain it.
     -- E Archer, NYC

    Ron, well said - We The People, as a Nation under God, abiding the ancient doctrine of Liberty would also live the lawfully accurate Ezra 7:24
     -- Mike, Norwalk

    As also you, Mike, it shall not be lawful to impose toll, tribute or custom upon them. We being the " Them "

    The Ark does float on the sea, so to, with the Body of Christ at liberty. A nation under the blanket of grace and mercy. Under the shadow of his wings. His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day.

    Miss inform the public enough, they will be found to side with their enemies.
