News: "We established however some, although not all its [self-government] important principles . The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent, (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved,) or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Cartwright, 1824

I've got my eye on government ...


« on: January 7, 2011, 06:42:36 AM »

This year, although discussion on the forum has been at a lower level than before, many new members have joined and a significant number of the new members appear to be from countries other than the United States.  We're glad to see the appeal of our message, purpose and discussion reaching out beyond the borders of the US.  Why?

Liberty in the US has been under attack for decades.  Elements of the American population have decided that the Federal Government is sovereign (has ultimate authority to decide) and that individuals are to be compliant, dutiful citizens bowing to the decisions of the "chosen" few who hold the reins of Federal government power.  Huge sums of money are spent to obtain these positions and there is much intrigue and struggle over them.  This is entirely contrary to the intent of the Founders of the United States and many, many of us are fighting to withstand and to reverse this trend.  We are making progress, but it is a long fight and our foes who wish to see a One-World central government that decides everything for its citizens are committed to fighting on to the end.

For Liberty and Freedom to persist in our world it must spread to other countries where it does not yet exist and must be strengthened where is has already been established.  It is not only the United States that needs these principles at the foundation of society, but every country of the World.  The success of America is based on our system ... a system where the individual is sovereign and all levels of government are the servants of the people.  A system where government has NO power inherently and is granted power, in specific ways, by the citizens.  Every other country in the World can experience the same growth, the same openness, the same quality of life as we do, through the practice of the principles of Liberty and Freedom.

Liberty will not ever be entirely secure, for there will always be those among us who will want to subject us to their personal rule and preferences.  There will always be those who want to dominate the rest of us.  For Liberty and Freedom to be their strongest, they must be rooted everywhere and nurtured by all men everywhere.  Only when ALL MEN ARE FREE will any of us be truly free.

Let the principles of Liberty and Freedom be America's gift to the World.  Take these ideas, plant them in your own country, protect and nurture them and defend them against all who would eliminate them.

That is the Future of Liberty.
