Amen brother! Why does the simple and profound truth and wisdom found in Franklins words become lost on "our" leaders??? Smh...Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.(Ben Franklin) In all the world of truisms truer words than these were never spoken. For those of you pro-govt, pro-NDAA, pro-USA Patriot Act,, etc., anti-gun, anti-patriot, anti-republic, contra-liberty, anti-constitutionalists let me break this quote down and sum it up for you best I can here.
You're privileged citizens of a Constitutional REPUBLIC, which permits you (on paper) to bask in the freedoms and liberties of that republic. However, there's a catch; The very moment any element of the government (which, as a said "republic", is a government of the people, by the people FOR the people), no matter how slight and no matter the rationale, takes any presumptive step contrary to its constitution, to the very definitions and precepts making it a republic and behaves in a manner that infringes or breeches upon the rights and liberties of even its least citizen it commits crimes against its own people, ceases to be a republic in that very moment. An infringement against anyone of us and our constitutional guarantees, whether we feel a communion or necessity with that particular right or not (as with the 2nd Amendment), is an infringement upon us all and every other liberty... Thus, for those of you who rationalize and support the grave misdeeds and overreaches by this American govt, or its so-called leader(s) you are fulfilling the words of Mr Franklin above and no longer rate or deserve said republic, constitution and/or liberties, etc. You simply and willingly forego the safety and liberties they provide.
I ask, why ever would you choose to do that here to yourselves and even to the rest of us? It's NOT a GOP or Dem, conservative or liberal thing, but an AMERICAN THING...
Do NOT Trust The Govt

Yup they just keep winning new generations of voters and their votes. That's also one of the big reasons for such lame azzed, unconstitutional immigration reform "efforts" and programs. 20 million mexicans just can't be wrong... Nobody really wants to bite the hand that feeds them for free and stop the gravy train.
