"Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it." -John Adams

Welcome to Patriot's Lament. We strive here to educate ourselves on Liberty. We will not worry ourselves so much with the daily antics of American politics, and drown ourselves in the murky waters of the political right or left.
Instead, we will look to the Intellectuals and Champions of Liberty, and draw on their wisdom of what it is to be a truly free people. We will learn from where our Providential Liberties are derived, and put the proper perspective of a Free Individual and the State.
Please join us!

"In the United States, we don't much govern at gunpoint"

From the LewRockwell.com Blog

"In the United States, we don't much govern at gunpoint," babbled Judge James Zagel while sentencing Illinois’ former Thief-in-Chief Rod Blagojevich, to 14 years in prison. "We require willing ... participation.”

That would explain the battalions of armed cops stalking among us, those threatening letters prospective jurors receive, cowed passengers submitting to sexual assault at airports, and the 2 million inmates, most of them political prisoners rather than actual criminals like Rod, currently languishing in stir, among other atrocities.

Isn’t a judge who’s clearly bonkers grounds for a mistrial? Gee whilikers, Zagel, get some help: you’re way out of touch with reality.

Some of us are becoming intimately familiar with how they "don't govern much at gunpoint." It's time to bury these myths. Santa Claus isn't real. The tooth fairy isn't real. And government is not a peaceful or voluntary institution. It exists only through violent predation on the peaceful and voluntary economic actions of its milk cows. It is starting to view us as beef cows.

  1. Nah, you are missing what he is saying, they don't govern much at gunpoint, they govern ALL at gunpoint.
