the abstract concept of full-blown liberty,
there is nothing like it in its uncontrollable strength."

    An abstract concept is where it shall remain - David, we agree on all three for a change

    Few people understand the liberating power of 'full-blown'liberty' -- even fewer trust it.

    What tiny percentage of individuals got in their heads the abstract concept of full-blown liberty to attempt establishing a representative republic. Such love of liberty made heal the world's greatest known army. Though an occupying statist theocracy now infests this land, said uncontrollable strength will once again raise an ensign of liberty.

    The fire of Liberty, a burning desire in the heart of the individual to set the poorest of all Free, this done from the middle and top, those that have something to sacrifice upon the alter of Liberty for all. Independence creates strength untold. Then the poor, know who to look up to, besides the state and fed !

    It's kind of surprising so few comments on this quote. Perhaps we have forgotten what full-blown liberty is like? I doubt ANY congressman would dare propose such a thing!

    Very interesting, not forgotten Archer, now that a blow is struck at the ROOT cause of oppression and socialism. The oppressors know very well, This knowledge is power to the people. Here again we three stand !! A tri-cord of commonsense ! On our Creator's behalf. Ascribing righteous to our God. In one accord with our Founding Fathers. The Truth will make you Free indeed.

    Count the stars !
