All went free when the multitudes of New England chose to "offend" a far off tyrant. In fact they established a "free" Republic which has since been stolen by a bunch of corrupt International Bankers. Maybe it's time to stop being so naieve and be a little more "offensive" in our defense of the greatest, freest nation in the history of mankind. Restore the Republic !

I should qualify the above comment by saying I don't advocate violence against anybody...but a court of justice rendering a verdict of High Treason has it's own way of dealing with things...

Sometimes. Do women go free when the multitudes offend under Sharia Law? NO. Do all go free when the multitudes of a democracy offend? NO.

E Archer, NYC

I interpret it to mean that when the multitudes offend, the offenders go 'free' -- it's called mob rule, sometimes referred to as 'democracy.'

WHAT!? This quote is about anti-Democracy, not direct democracy. What the quote means, for you simpletons who are too obtuse to recognize, is conspiracies get away with their crimes. Which is not exactly true. Case in point Thomas Jefferson. He Died on the 4th of July, literally sh*tting himself, diarrhea due to amoebic dysentery. He's now paying back all he offended, with his crimes of genocide against American natives, treachery against the real patriots of the Revolutionary war, his having been traitorously in service to Rothschilds bank, which was the first bank of the US. I understand he wasn't as fierce an offender against his slaves as many were, but still he tore them from their chosen existence and took advantage of their labor to swell his personal dominance. More people who in conspiracy didn't get away with their crimes, Al Capone, dead of syphilis; ALL of the Caesars, most dead by murderous treachery of their peers; the cops who recently beat to death a man named Kelly in Fullerton California; the cop who murdered Oscar Grant, already sentenced to prison. In reality, nobody gets away with their crimes, EVERYBODY pays eventually. You create a situation by living this life, that when you arrive to the afterlife, justice is enforced upon you. All you caracass scarfing Nazi's would do well to pay greater mind to your crimes in conspiracy.

Thanks Daniel...without your insane little rant, I would never have known how simple I really am. Maybe tone down the Meds a little...

(-; J Carlton, Daniel must have been talking about you and Archer, he certainly couldn't have been talking about me ;-)
