Thomas Jefferson Quote

“I tolerate with utmost latitude the right of others to differ with me in opinion without imputing to them criminality. I know too well all the weaknesses and uncertainty of human reason to wonder at its different results.”

All the king's men and socialist, with their obscene victimless crimes are intolerant of law's freedom, liberty, inalienable rights, and prosperity.

    I find it hard to tolerate the likes of the Obama, Pelosi, and Obama gang. I do, however, think that they all need another term, 20 to life sounds about right.

    History shows humanity that Jefferson was right. Not all people can see, or, spoiled as they are, turn a blind eye to the PURSUIT of happiness and take the spoils of poverty instead.

    Make no mistake, insisting on permission to act is the unauthorized role of government. The GOP is just as guilty of furthering the criminalization of consensual acts as much as the libs. You may possess arms for defense, but if a government official knocks on your door and says you must give him your weapons, you have to do it or be imprisoned or even shot -- ask home owners in New Orleans who were cuffed with plastic ties while Homeland Security went through their homes and took their weapons "for their own security" because there was a state of emergency in effect. THAT is when the citizen would most need his weapons! Not for using against the government, but to defend one's own property during a time of looting. DHS is an oxymoron -- the last thing they want is for you to be secure without them.
