Your attempt at diversion was informative. Most people who have an education instead of an indoctrination are aware of the discrepancy you reference.<quoted text>
Wow. You are not the sharpest in your herd, sport...Here is the original quote NOT said by Thomas Jefferson
"When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny."
1."When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
2."Does the government fear us? Or do we fear the government? When the people fear the government, tyranny has found victory. The federal government is our servant, not our master!"
3.When the people fear the government, that's tyranny; when the government fears the people, that's freedom.
