For in a Republic, who is "the country?" Is it the Government
which is for the moment in the saddle? Why, the Government is
merely a servant- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its
prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and
decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to
obey orders, not originate them.
- Mark Twain
No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights
of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him.
- Thomas Jefferson
The worst evils which mankind has ever had to endure were inflicted
by bad governments. The state can be and has often been in the course
of history the main source of mischief and disaster.
- Ludwig von Mises
"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has
is the power to crack down on criminals. When there aren't enough
criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime
that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.
Unjust laws have to be fought ideologically; they cannot be fought or
corrected by means of mere disobedience and futile martyrdom."
- Ayn Rand
"The government has created a nation of paper criminals. People can
be put in jail and lose civil rights and liberties through bureaucratic
"The only thing that is keeping you out of jail is government goodwill."
- Ayn Rand
Bad laws are the worst sort of tyranny.
- Edmund Burke
"A land where only the police (and military) have guns
is called a Police State !"
"There is no such thing as a dangerous weapon, there are only dangerous men".
- Robert Heinlein
"The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments
it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest
limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and when the right
of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever,
prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction."
- Henry St. George Tucker, in Blackstone's 1768 "Commentaries on the Laws of England."
I am willing to defend my property and liberty with the same force
and enthusiasm as the ones that try to take it away!
- Bruce Montague.
"Only dead fish go with the current"
- Indian proverb
"Pity the poor, wretched timid soul who is too faint hearted to
resist his oppressors. He sings the song of the damned:
I can't fight back, I have too much to lose; I own too much property; I have worked
too hard for what I have; they will put me out of business if I resist; I might go
to jail; I have my family to think about. Such poor miserable creatures are hiding
their cowardice behind pretended family responsibility."
- Author Unknown
If you have that much to fight for, then you should be fighting.
The sentiment that modern day ordinary Canadians do not need firearms
for protection is pleasant but unrealistic. To discourage responsible
deserving Canadians from possessing firearms for lawful self-defence
and other legitimate purposes is to risk sacrificing them at the altar
of political correctness.
- Alberta Provincial Court Judge Demetrick
"It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brush fires of freedom in the minds of men"
