Warren was all wet when he said liberty is more contagious than communism! The 10 planks of Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto have in fact superseded the Bill of Rights, Read them and weep: http://liberty-tree.ca/research/Communist.Manifesto

    Too many variables, I wasn't quite sure how to rate this. Not shooting the messenger (Warren, legislating from the bench, forced communism and fascism as a replacement for liberty), I'm not sure liberty and force belong in the same sentence. As I've stated here many times before - Liberty is: The power of acting as one thinks fit, without any restraint or control, except from the laws of nature. (Bouviers Law Dictionary) Liberty is the exemption from extraneous control. The power of the will, in its moral freedom, to follow the dictates of its unrestricted choice, and to direct the external acts of the individual without restraint, coercion, or control from other persons. Liberty is the right which nature gives to all mankind of disposing of their persons and property after the manner they judge most consistent with their happiness, on condition of their acting within the limits of the law of nature, and so as not to interfere with an equal exercise of the same rights by other men. (Blacks Law Dictionary 1st ed.) Liberty: "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). To the concept of liberty, how many have truely endeavored to forsake all represive chains that bind them. "all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed" (Declaration of Independence). The mere concept of liberty is denied to individuals in theocratic seminaries (government schools), by ecclesiastical propacators (the MSM) and the many statist theocracies infesting this planet. It is a tribute to the noble being - man, that liberty is innate and an inalienable element of the specie. Liberty does keep raising its beautiful presence.

    How could he believe in liberty or our constitution when he helped to centralize all power to D.C.? He made this statement, but then legislated from the bench.

    As so stated by a Nadiyb, Churl liberal, ( vile, grandee, tyrant ).
    who legislated from the bench. Washington stated , " Liberty is a plant that grows rapidly." Mike's exhaustive translation of the law, is always a great read. Dry at times, but such is the law. Former slaves are termed Libertines, ( libertinos, of Lat, or,; a Roman Freed man.) Then again from the, Hebrew and Aramaic Chophshiy Liberty, fiscally broad, large, roomy in any direction, freedom from, bondage, tax, at your pleasure. Now when considering slavery and liberty as understood from the cradle of civilizations ancient text in all its complexities we must look at " Sovereignty" and the Avestan, an Iranian language of eastern Iranian division. Mithra Apam Napat, Angel of Covenant and Oath, Son of Waters. One God, AHura Mazda, Avestan name.
    A judicial figure and all seeing protector of truth. Artaxerxes II worshiped and invoked alone in a triad,( Good thoughts, Good works, Good deeds). As in the trinity of the Creator. Apam Napat appears as the Creator of mankind, the protector of the Glory of Sovereignty. Khvarenah, the power projected upon and aiding the appointed. Divine Royal Glory, secondary meaning of Good. Apam Napat has a Golden Splendor. Remembering Cyrus the Great form the Hebrew OT text, he attributed his success to the grace of Ahura Mazda. Our Founding Fathers embraced the Creator and his endowed rights to man, the protector of the Individual Sovereign. Brings to mind the defense of the Individual sovereign, considering our free Republic is under siege, the AFFIDAVIT OF REVOCATION AND RESCISSION no very well known, due to the dumbing down of the people through coercive, misleading's. Page 1 paragraph 3, That I was unaware that the signing and filing of an income tax return and other IRS forms are acts of voluntary compliance for a free sovereign individual citizen and/or resident of the United States when executed and submitted by said individual living and working within the States of the Union; that I was unaware that in a court of law the completed IRS documents can become prima facie evidence sufficient to sustain a legal conclusion by a judge that the signer has voluntarily changed his legal status from that of a Free Sovereign individual citizen who is not subject to any federal tax and who possesses all of his God-given Constitutionally secured rights when dealing with government.
    4 ) That I am a natural born free sovereign United States citizen, and a citizen of the State of -------, a freeman and I am endowed by my Creator with numerous inalienable rights including my rights to " life, liberty , and the pursuit of happiness," which rights are specifically identified in the Declaration of Independence and protected by the United States Constitution; that my birthright to " pursuit of happiness" has been interpreted by both the framers of the Constitution and the U. S. Supreme Court as including my inalienable right to contract, to acquire, to deal in, to sell, rent, and exchange properties of various kinds, real and personal, without requesting or exercising any privilege or franchise from government; that I have learned that these inalienable property rights also include my right to contract for the exchange of my labor-property for other properties such as wages, salaries, and other earnings, that I have Never knowingly or intentionally waived any of these inalienable rights.
    I hope this is not to long a post. But people must understand their rights as individual sovereigns Defined !!

    Lamentably, licentiousness, of which Communism is an expression, is more nearly contagious than is rooted in right principle Liberty, as frail as human beings are in their fallenness.
