Pennsylvania Gazette Quote

“The loyalists in the beginning of the late war objected to associating, arming and fighting, in defense of our liberties, because these measures were not constitutional. A free people should always be left... with every possible power to promote their own happiness.”

I'm surprised that Anonymous could even spell "sucks".

One of the things I admired most about Clint Eastwood was his bid for Mayor of Carmel by the Sea...using the slogan, "Leave people the hell alone".

Today's loyalists object to associating, arming or fighting in defense of the law of nature / nature's God, inalienable rights, freedom, liberty, or anyone's happiness. “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” (Samuel Adams)

The power for subjects to defend themselves against the Crown has always been unconstitutional in monarchies.  Keeping the common person subservient and dependent is the business of ruling.  No oppressed people have ever freed themselves without fighting for it  this is why they are kept disarmed.
