"All Men have a Right to remain in a State of Nature as long as they please: And in case of intolerable Oppression, civil or religious, to leave the Society they belong to and enter into another. When Men enter into Society, it is by voluntary Consent, and they have a Right to demand and insist upon the performance of such Conditions and previous Limitations as form an equitable original Compact."
Samuel Adams
(1722-1803), was known as the "Father of the American Revolution."

Reader comments about this quote:
"Be not unequally yoked together". There must be equity. Demand and insist it, or throw off and abolish the current despotism and corruption gripping this nation. The Restoration process under the current administration, with the Leadership of President Trump, calls out and moves quickly seeking peace through honesty, within loyal ranks to our Oath to defend the unalienable rights of the sovereign in the United States of America. We Declare it, our Constitution defends it. The Fraud and Theft have gone on long enough.
God Bless and Semper Fi
