Reader comments about this quote:
Our Liberties have been under attack for a very long time now. Through the UN, the CFR, the Bilderberg's, and a host of other NGO's our legal system our eco-system and free enterprise economic system are being laid to waste with Global Government and a vastly (violently?)reduced population as the end goal. But I believe people are beginning to wake up to these realities. Will it be enough to stop the Globalists? Time will tell. Restore the Republic.

    A true spark of Webster's religious liberty would be to freely express charitable principles, have a free exercise of conscious, live within the virtues of man's nobility (free will reigning supreme under law and justice) and an animated vitality in toto aloof from the dark repression of the occupying statist theocracy now infesting this land. A "republican government presupposes the existence of these qualities in a higher degree than any other form." (James Madison) Civil liberty would be exclusive from compelled compliance, license, victimless crimes, government larceny with impunity, voter fraud, mere titles replacing alodial ownership, vain claimed security in place of freedom's animating contest, socialistic repression of commerce and a non-recognition of individual sovereign inalienable rights. No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders. (Samuel Adams) As Carlton said "Restore the Republic".

    Same as it ever was. Should Liberty fail in America, it will arise somewhere else. The only real hold the globalists have are the conditioned serfs -- but conditioning cannot stand on its own in the face of reality. No matter how long an illusion may run its course, reality always wins.

    In his counter speech to Robert Hayne he spoke like Alexander Hamilton in wanting our nation to be nationalized rather than state and local rule.
