The tranquility of servitude

Some prefer the tranquility of servitude to the contest for liberty — according to Samuel Adams, in his speech at the Pennsylvania State House, 1 August 1776.  In the words of Samuel Adams  “crouch down and lick the hands which feed you”.

Some people yearn to breathe free, but not everyone.

Some people want to live in a free country, some do not.

Timid men prefer the calm of despotism — according to Thomas Jefferson, April 24, 1796, Letter to Phillip Mazzei

“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” — Benjamin Franklin, November 11, 1755; Reply to the Governor. This is inscribed on a plaque in the stairwell of the Statute of Liberty.

“Those who already walk submissively will say there is no cause for alarm. But submissiveness is not our heritage.” — according to the U.S. Supreme Court in Laird v. Tatum, 408 US 1, page 28.

The U.S. Supreme Court said “the use of identification papers are routine matters under totalitarian regimes, yet abhorrent in the United States…” — Aptheker v. Secretary of State, 378 U.S. 500.

A right cannot be taxed.  Once you pay for a right, you have waived your right.

If someone purports to exercise a duty that he is not expressly authorized to perform, and in the process denies you a right provided by law, he violates the Klu Klux Klan Act of 1873.

If you cooperate with the boot on your face, a judge can legitimately say that you volunteered. The moment you obey an unlawful order — is the moment you recognize a counterfeit authority as legitimate. Estopple waives your right to complain.

Every Law Dictionary will tell you The civil laws reduce an ungrateful freeman to his condition of slavery. Libertinum ingratum leges civiles in pristinam servitutem redigunt.

A word of advice to Christians:

  • Cowards have their place in the Lake of Fire — according to Revelation 21:8.
  • God gave you a free-will.  Do not reject God. Christ delivered us from Caesar. Stand firm in the liberty wherewith Christ has set us free.

A word of advice to patriots:

  • According to the first sentence of the Declaration of Independence it is the Laws of Nature  and the laws of Nature’s God that entitle the United States to exist.
  • Obedience to a counterfeit government is mutiny against lawful government. Do not deny the legitimacy of lawful government.
