"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!

Patriot's Lament Feb 11 and 18

Patriot's Lament Feb 11, 2012: Might Makes Right

In this episode we discuss a new fundamental flaw in the "vote for someone who is electable" argument. Primarily that it undermines the theoretical basis of the already tenuous idea of democracy. If you're not voting for someone who really represents you, then democracy can't even work in theory.

We then move on to discuss the meaninglessness of the conservative movement's opposition to the so-called "mandated funding of abortions" in the Obama health care bill ... because the same conservative movement has no problem whatsoever with half of the entire federal budget (1 trillion dollars per year) being spent specifically to kill foreigners (i.e. war and the military). Such conservatives do not oppose what I refer to as "fourth trimester abortions." What a principled stance.

Patriot's Lament Feb 18, 2012: Govern By Consent

In this episode, we start the show with the question, "what liberty?" Revolution for what? Replaced with what? Basically who and what would replace what we have now. No one understands or comprehends what liberty is, they think joe miller is a " constitutional " scholar, which proves our point. What is liberty?
