"The lesson that Americans today have forgotten or never learned -- the lesson which our ancestors tried so hard to teach -- is that the greatest threat to our lives, liberty, property, and security is not some foreign government, as our rulers so often tell us. The greatest threat to our freedom and well-being lies with our own government!."
Jacob G. Hornberger
(1950- ) American author, journalist, politician, founder and president of the Future of Freedom Foundation
Gun Control, Patriotism and Civil Disobedience, Pamphlet published by International Society for Individual Liberty

Reader comments about this quote:
ABSOLUTELY ! ! ! We hold this truth to be self evident. Compelled compliance, license, victimless crimes, larceny (funny money, income tax, etc.) with impunity, acts contrary to inalienable rights, the Patriot Act, NDAA, elimination of habeas corpus, torture for information, legalized assassinations, the police state etc., etc., etc. are but a terse tip of the iceberg in describing this quote's accuracy.

    Mike has it right. Just look inside the beltway for proof.

    Absolutely TRUE! We have far too many holding a government office who usurp and violate their sacred oath of office to uphold and adhere to the Supreme Rule of Law - i.e., the U.S. Constitution.
     -- Mary - MI     
    This is something we have to get through to Republican voters. We must not trade our liberty for false security.
