    Much better Mike. In opposite when we stand and protect our own rights we stand and protect the rights of all others.

    If we stand and defend the rights of one individual, we defend individual rights for all.

    Anyone who hates cannot be free, necessarily.

    Ultimately, can anyone who is in bondage vouchsafe Liberty to another?

    In the presence of Love, Liberty, in its most sublime exemplification, exists to be experienced.

    Many, do not walk their own fence line. When " At Liberty " guard them well. Your family resides within your care. Through the use of bullets long before FDR, our liberties came under siege. compromise has been the progressive poison served ever sense. If one walks at God's liberty, boundaries are "known" well. The enemy knows where your fence line is at, most do not.
