"I am not free until I say so.
And there's a good chance
I am going to have to fight once I do.
Ever since I declared my Independence,
I have had to support and defend it."

Nice thoughts Eric; however, there are no written rights or laws in this nation anymore. Everything is at the mercy of a judge's or court's interputation. We just don't know anymore!

    Absolutely agree but hmmm, you'd better check that source again ;-)

    Our freedoms are circling the drain right now with Obamas health plan and Cap and Trade bills having a strong possibility of being passed. Now is the time to contact Representatives and Senators in Washington, especially your Senators. The Messiah, Obama, admits that if Cap and Trade passes your electric bills will skyrocket. Now is the time to act.

    Maybe we should call it Kneecap and Trade.

    Right on Eric! People hate those who are free and speak their mind. Look how so many jump on my case because I don't walk in some right wing straight jacket. Cal expresses the straight jacket mentality well: he wants everything written down and absolute, now is that FREEDOM?

    Good to see something from Eric. :-). Waffler people don't jump on you for speaking your mind. And those who do aren't "Right Wing". Americans don't like communism...that's why they jump on you. But still, you are free to do what you do... Just get used to being scorned. I responded to your Obama Gun Control query too.

    Jim K, Cap and Trade is a total...and I mean "TOTAL" scam. Many sources on the subject out there. Ron Paul tabled a petition signed by over 31,000 scientists denouncing the whole thing...yet its still going to pass. Don't forget to vote though...whatever would we do without representation like we have? ;-)
     -- J Carlton     
    Amen, J Carlton.

    Good words from a good man. All power and blessings to you.

    I really like it! Freedom starts with the personal declaration to be free and to pledge all that one has to keep and defend it. Live free or die. No piece of paper has granted me my rights. No person has 'freed' me. In the end, I am free because I say so, no matter what anyone else says. If I had to count on people like Waffler to defend my rights, I would have only the rights that they deemed I could be trusted with.

    Good to hear from you, Eric. Unfortunately, you must not have gotten the memo. Freedom is now un-American.

    You don't become free just because you say so, you are free when you obey Nature and Natures God.

    You are free because you 'obey' Nature?  That's an oxymoron.
