Reader comments about this quote:
We hold this truth to be self evident. Only those who have eyes to see, ears to hear, and substance of heart to understand the nobility of life, law, justice, inalienable right and who man 'IS' can understand the truth of the above quote. Those who are hollow in form, having no comprehension in the individual's substantive divinity, being tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth, only have activity measurements to define freedom, they having no personal ability to recognize evidential truth. Further, it is a crime to place chains (insurance, compelled compliance, license, victemless crimes, larceny with immunity, violation of inalienable right, etc.) on the non-criminal free born.

    Born in Chains, as in Born in Servitude to Foreign Bankers through the various Revenue Agencies. Didn't we fight a revolution to throw off these chains?

    The same God that gave us life, gave us liberty. It is an inalienable right. Only God Himself can rightfully take this right from a law abiding citizen (that is laws that fall within the realm of justice). To take liberty from an innocent person is to assume power that only belongs to the Lord God Almighty. Those who do this had better pray that He has mercy on their souls.
     -- Publius
