"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!

Down with the Presidency!

Lew Rockwell, founder and Chairman of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, discusses his classic speech “Down With the Presidency;” how state-worshiping Americans have allowed the office of the president to become an elected dictatorship; the spectacle of presidential travel, where entire cities are shut down during a visit from our “god-king” imperial president and his enormous entourage; how the Ron Paul Revolution is winning the hearts and minds of young people the world over; prospects for liberty beyond the 2012 Republican National Convention; and how Paul is removing the “60s leftist” stigma from antiwar activism.

Listen to the interview here.
