from John Perna h/t WhatReallyHappened.com The biggest problem in the defense of liberty today is moral decline. A corrupt population will accept corrupt JUDGES, corrupt politicians, corrupt journalists, corrupt military, and corrupt police. We get the kind of government that we deserve. A prison is a dictatorship because only a tyrant can govern a criminal population. The biggest criminals wear ties, not tattoos. When politicians say that they are “running on their records” we should ask them if they include THEIR CRIMINAL RECORDS? Do not steal. You are not allowed to compete with the government. THOMAS JEFFERSON SAID “TYRANNY IS DEFINED AS THAT WHICH IS LEGAL FOR THE GOVERNMENT BUT ILLEGAL FOR THE CITIZENRY” St. Augustine wrote: “Justice being taken away, then, what are kingdoms but great robberies? For what are robberies themselves, but little kingdoms?” STUPID criminals make the individual the victim of his crime. STUPID criminals break into your home when you are not there, and take your valuables away. SMART criminals become politicians. SMART criminals come to your home when you ARE there, and take YOU away. SMART criminals take EVERYTHING that you own. SMART criminals even put you into slavery and thereby take the FUTURE fruits of your labor. STUPID criminals rob banks. SMART criminals run banks. Small criminals get arrested. Big criminals get elected. The biggest criminals run governments without being elected. The difference between theft and taxation is that when a thief takes your money he does not use it to interfere in your life or business, and you do not have to fill out any forms. Everything that Hitler did was LEGAL. Legal means condoned by government. Illegal means not condoned by government. The Boston Tea Party was illegal. The Declaration of Independence was illegal. n the final analysis no tyranny will ever condone the effective defense of freedom. Thomas Jefferson said “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.” We add this: “The battle for liberty is never won, and never lost. The battle for liberty always continues. It is never too late, and never soon enough, to defend freedom. No matter how enslaved we are, we always have hope. No matter how free we are we are never safe. NOTHING EVER LIMITS THE GOVERNMENT, EXCEPT THE PEOPLE. Any generation that fails to defend freedom will lose it. The next generation will have to shed blood to gain it back. When the defense of liberty becomes a crime, tyranny is already in force. At that point failure to defend liberty makes slavery at certainty.” John Perna
