"Let us contemplate our forefathers, and posterity, and resolve to maintain the rights bequeathed to us from the former, for the sake of the latter. The necessity of the times, more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude and perseverance. Let us remember that "if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom," it is a very serious consideration ... that millions yet unborn may be the miserable sharers of the event."
by:
Samuel Adams
(1722-1803), was known as the "Father of the American Revolution."
Date:
1771

Reader comments about this quote:
This comment brings a tear to the eye and a lump to the thought when in circumspection and understanding that We The People have suffered tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty and, as a result, millions yet unborn are going to be the miserable sharers of the event. The statist theocracy now infesting this land, with its patrons and one world puppeteers are exponentially bleeding the last drops of health, wealth, and wisdom out of once free sovereigns.

    This quote needs to be brought to the attention of all Americans especially right now. We are in the middle stages of socialism & the leader of this great Nation is pushing as fast as he & his czars can to get it moved into the next stage which is communism. We really need God's help now more then ever. I believe that he only helps those that help themselves.

    Let's not forget the continuous and openly more brazen attacks on Americans at home and abroad coming from the "Religion of Peace" and its corresponding body count. Time to wake up America.

    For lack of a better term, I am awestruck at the depth of this man's prescience. Were these words spoken only yesterday, they could never be more germane to our times. They sincerely invoke upon me a sense of reverence....that reverence which demands action, even to the point of self-sacrifice. I wonder how many of us, myself included, are as concerned for the liberty and blessings of our posterity as our forefathers were for us (whom they could only see by faith)?

    Americans have not suffered tamely -- most of the worst government abuses followed bloody wars in which millions were killed. War is the line in the sand -- if we do not accept tamely the ruling class's dictates, they force war upon us. Now the people are warred upon every day through insidious means that only one in a million are able to discern. We must free our minds as well as our bodies from this grip of oppression. Better start now -- already our fellows are imprisoned for merely standing up for the very principles our nation was founded upon. Can we foil the globalists plans? So far, we have barely slowed them down. But the scales are tipping, and it won't be long that we will have to decide which side we are on and fight.
