"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." -- George Washington

"A patroit must always be ready to defend his country against its own government."-Ed Abbey

"Repetition dosen't transform a lie into the trouth."-Franklin D Roosevelt

"Remember that a government big enough to give you everything is also big enough to take everything you have."-Davy Crokett

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patroits and tyrants."-Thomas Jefferson

"It's dangerous to be right when the government is wrong."-Voltaire

[W]hen the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually...I ask, who are the militia? They consist of now of the whole people, except a few public officers. But I cannot say who will be the militia of the future day. If that paper on the table gets no alteration, the militia of the future day may not consist of all classes, high and low, and rich and poor...

---George Mason - 1788

This is an interesting conversation. I welcome more contributions to it. As soon as I can get five minutes of free time, I'll do some more research too! My email has suddenly found a way of cloning itself! I can hardly keep up. I really appreciate all of the assistance and contributions being made! Thanks...
