"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not." ~~Thomas Jefferson

"Who will protect us from those who protect us?"

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. ~ Thomas Jefferson

"None are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free." ~~Goethe

Adaptation of Gibbon quote...

“In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all – security, comfort, and freedom. When the Americans finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then America ceased to be free and was never free again.”

~~ Edward Gibbon (adapted)

Stay safe.

Yep, the hippies and wimps went into teaching, taught a generation and a half and destroyed America. Stalin couldn't. George III couldn't. Hitler couldn't. Hippies and wimps, well they could.
