"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 will 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 Founding Fathers of our great Nation, and draw on their wisdom of what it is to have a truly free Republic. We will learn from where our Providential Liberties are derived, and put the proper perspective of a Freeman and the state.
Please join us!

Eric Holder to give rationale for assassination of Americans by the President

Eric Holder, U.S. attorney general, gives a speech today on why the President has the "right" to murder Americans without due process that was guaranteed to us by the bill of Rights. Those same Rights that all those in the government swear to uphold and defend. So, if they break that oath, are we obligated to obey anything they command? Don't they give up the Right to govern when they break their oath to us? Aren't we supposed to be the ones who consent to be governed, and on the basis that our Rights are not to be infringed upon?
Is this government legitimate?

The people cannot delegate to government the power to do anything which would be unlawful for them to do themselves. ... whenever the Legislators endeavor to take away, and destroy the Property of the People, or to reduce them to Slavery under Arbitrary Power, they put themselves into a state of War with the People, who are thereupon absolved from any farther Obedience, and are left to the common Refuge, which God hath provided for all Men, against Force and Violence. John Locke
