"If all men are created equal, that is final.
If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final.
If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final.
No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions."
Calvin Coolidge
(1872-1933) 30th US President
In a speech commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence

    The animation of Liberty and Freedom or the groveling of servitude, it is a choice of freewill. Let the young learn early the opportunity it provides.

    "No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions.” Any attempt to go beyond these propositions can only be defined under a title of tyranny.

    There is no greater benefit in life to freedom.  Nothing the liberals promise to provide for you is worth trading one iota of it.
