Incomplete. Irreverence is the champion of Liberty when the law is lawless. See natural laws.

This is true, however George was Fabian, the predecessors of Fascists. They also said the same thing about inflation.

So I give Jefferson 2 stars, his Francophile side is invested in cynicism from the colonial plantations a la Jean Jacques Rousseau. The Francophiles in the US were a different branch of Social Contract theory where human rights are at center and Hobbes and Locke were in a deadlock with ole Jean. The Federalists came up with a Bills of Rights that the greatest statesman to France  Benjamin Franklin signed onto philosopher, inventor, businessman, politician, newspapers, and most of of all diplomat and ambassador during the revolution. See Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers. You literally have to worship Liberty that is not undefined. J

Jefferson and Thomas Paine were deists, meaning they believed in the ethical imperative of Liberty contained in the Bible. Separate from any godhood, deity, or acts of super natural intervention. They still defend Christ. If you disbelieve this you need to study Paine's Rights Of Man.

Weak, since we know the standing army is what we fear and for good reason. That spells separate from the armed state that includes the 2nd amendment in the US.

This is the type of historian we should all avoid. Let me repeat, avoid. Those who FOUNDED this country chose LIBERTY. It is an ethical imperative that the enlightenment discovered. To understand the restrictions one must put on freedom ie like open borders into a welfare state to preserve Liberty. "We wouldn't need govt if we were all angels." ~ John Adams

She already had a pension from her dead husband, what he signed on to. The further act of congress was charity that Davy protested. In Fact, all soldiers received pensions that date back before the revolution in England. 

Don Lee, Reno

It is immoral to take from the working man to give to charity. In this case, Davy was against taking from working people to give to a generals widow even though she already had a pension the general signed up for. It is immoral for any govt to take from the poor to give to the rich, this is exactly what Davy was saying. Even backwoods can recognize  evil when they see it and you can't see it.

Anyone who thinks he can make sense out of this must be a madman also. Cognitive behavior is not on this guys radar.

JFK along with H Humphrey initiated the Peace Corps for rich elite leftist children. The taxpayer paid for them, the kids flipping burgers and pumping gas, working on farms in the summer, and the program wound up be mostly about drugs, travel and sex for spoiled brats who didn't learn a thing about Liberty. Their rich parents pushed the bill onto others instead of taking money from their own pockets. The left today continues in his tradition of inequality which the left has always practiced. His open market comment is heresy. He was no champion for for Americans, being how egregious affair this was and still is.

This is counter culture chaos akin to self hate. As per Shakespeare, "Self love is not so vile a sin as self neglect ."~ American culture

Don Lee, RENO

Fake...I don't see him championing freedom of speech today. Did he die? 

Don Lee, Reno

False. Govt is to protect borders from despots who would take our rights. That is the original context from western civilization

Don Lee, Reno

Today's left is not using proper English words to describe equality they describe equity as if it means equal. The so-called living constitution is to bastardize meaning. 

Don Lee, RENO

Although she is correct, like a Marxist she insulted our Christian nation namely the Bill of Rights and "The Perfect Law of Liberty." She was and still is a double edge sword. Her work should be avoided by free people, less we forget where are values lay.

Don Lee, RENO

Weak...since public education is only suppose to be for economics, ie reading writing and math, the rest is ALL propaganda. Public education started at the beginning of the Industrial revolution and it's only purpose is economics.

Don Lee, Reno

The appearance of freedom will remain in place until man can overcome all of his vices. An express contract by the people defends us against absolute tyranny. 

Don Lee, RENO

God given because rights have consequences promised by holy writ, expressed that man should protect them with organized govt. Nature's God. Mises covered the problem with modernists taking God out of the equation, ie Marx, 

Don Lee, RENO

The DOI was put into mothballs in 1789 and should have been left there. We live under an express contract, Lockean in it's Bill of Rights and common law, Hobbesian in it's Civil Law. The DOI has been misrepresented since the Dred Scott Case.

Don Lee, RENO

Nope. You can't just lump all people and govt together as bad. The Bill of Rights is divine, the bureaucracies the left push are not. You have to dichotomy and be rational about it, and don't hook up with Rothbard's illogical feelings. The entire quote is a contradiction on liberty and justice.

Don Lee, Reno

No in today's leftism means oppression and not equality. A sad state of affairs and an indictment against modern education in public schools that preach anarchy in the same breath as big govt. 

Don Lee, Reno

Spot on. Something is worse than the war for men that are free, and that is slavery

Don Lee, Reno

Mencken is self-loathing since we are the govt. This quote has nothing to do with liberty, rather it is nihilism in it's worst form..

Don Lee, Reno

You don't become free just because you say so, you are free when you obey Nature and Natures God.
