"The true patriot scrutinizes the actions of his own government with unceasing vigilance. And when his government violates the morality and rightness associated with principles of individual freedom and private property, he immediately rises in opposition to his government."
Jacob G. Hornberger
(1950- ) American author, journalist, politician, founder and president of the Future of Freedom Foundation

 -- LOUIS MURPHY, san antonio, texas      
The true patriot's government of morality, rightness, principles, individual freedom and private property ownership is long since dead. The true patriot must now oppose the occupying statist theocracy that now infests this land ! ! !

    Isn't the the true patriot, or gentleman/lady in general, the individual who can conduct all their relationships without the use of firearms or weapons of any sort?

    No!  The true patriot is sovereign over himself and carries the duty and responsibility for defending his rights from enemies foreign and domestic.  He may not be disarmed in any way, nor must he trade his rights in exchange for servitude and dependence.
