“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed….”

~ NOAH WEBSTER (Served in Revolutionary Army, Printed dictionary; federalist)

“No free government was ever founded, or ever preserved its liberty, without uniting the characters of the citizen and soldier in those destined for the defense of the state… Such are a well regulated militia, composed of the freeholders, citizens and husbandman, who take up arms to preserve their property, as individuals, and their rights as freemen.”

~ RICHARD HENRY LEE (Signed Declaration of Independence, introduced resolution in Continental Congress to become independent, proposed Bill of Rights from beginning, author of Anti-Fed Papers, Congressman and Senator from Virginia)

“I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.”

~ JAMES MADISON (Drafted Virginia Constitution, Member of Continental Congress, Virginia delegate to Constitutional Convention, named “Father of the Constitution”, author of Federalist Papers, author of the Bill of Rights, Congressman from Virginia, Secretary of State, 4th President)

    These men would have a cat with barbed wire tails if they could see the mess the country they created is in now! Damn I would hate to have to be the one to tell them about it.

    The sooner the masses see and UNDERSTAND what the Framers said and did, the sooner we can get on with restoring our Republic.

    I believe education is the key to undoing all this crap, which will take time….which we don’t have much of!

    Our only option is the Second Amendment, and making people understand THAT also.

      Too late. The education is going to be the only type of education that has ever taken hold in this country. It’s known as “PAIN”. We are going to have a lot of it too! I think before the end of the 1st qtr.
