"The Shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep's throat,
for which the sheep thanks the shephard as a liberator, while
the wolf denounces him for the same act as a destroyer of liberty.
Plainly, the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of liberty."
Abraham Lincoln
(1809-1865) 16th US President

Reader comments about this quote:
"The laws of nature and of nature's God / Constitutional law (republican form of government) that is the foundation of individual sovereignty, inalienable rights, liberty, justice, peace and prosperity have been ripped from the throat of the sheep (We The People) by socialist and other demonic malefactors who, in reality, detest such. Said socialist and other demonic malefactors are much more comfortable in their statist theocracy's social setting of compelled compliance, government licensing, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, Social Security, police state confiscations, funny money cronyism, non-existence of perfected allodium / absolute personal ownership, etc.). Socialist and other demonic malefactors need RE-define words such as "liberty" because it is so antagonistic to their chosen lives of being helots, serfs and slaves.

    Interesting, I've never considered opening up deliberations with sheep and a wolf.  A fellow has got to learn his limitations. This quote has really taught me mine.
