"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!

Ready,Aim...Submit!! By Jeff Berwick

It’s funny, because the pro-gun crowd says that guns are inanimate objects that can’t hurt anyone by themselves when they are arguing with anti-gun types, but don’t want to own up to the fact that the same inanimate object cannot make them free.
For a gun to work, you have to pick it up and pull the trigger.

Here are a few tidbits of the article.

"Many stated, "when the time comes we will fight and win."  To this, my question is, what are you waiting for?  You say you believe in freedom and will fight to the death for it.  Well... you live in one of the least free countries on Earth currently.  Only Cuba, North Korea and perhaps Belarus are noticeably worse.  The government extorts you for half your income every year.  They are already running massive prison camps where people get hauled off daily for non-crimes (no victim, no crime).  The US has the largest amount of people in cages in the world by a factor of nearly 4 times over the next closest on a per capita basis."

"The funny part is that the slaves will crow, proudly, how they are "allowed" to have guns.  They'll state, "I would never live in Mexico, you aren't allowed to have guns their."  That's slave talk.  Free men don't care what is allowed."

"In fact, of almost any country, the people in the US are the most servile and submissive when it comes to the police and government.  There are countless YouTube videos of the police in the US beating innocent people brutally and all the people around them do is say things like, "Sir!  Sir, please stop!!  Sir, stop!"  Slave talk.

"The fact of the matter is that most people today are whipped dogs compared to even a few decades ago.  In the 1960s, people were much more willing to react violently in response to government actions.  Back then, there were citywide riots in multiple places across the USA.  Today, Occupy Wall Street gets told they must stay in a special free-speech designated park and after a few months they all just go home.
Left-wing groups like the Weather Underground would bomb the capitol building, the pentagon and the Department of State building and claimed they wanted to overthrow the government (possibly in the form of Barack Obomber, they are now succeeding). There were widespread student protests. Today?  Nothing.  Only one person has done anything violent to the US Goverment in the last decade and he wasn't even American. Hero, Muntadhar al-Zaidi, threw a shoe at George W. Bush in 2008 stating, "This is a farewell kiss from the Iraqi people, you dog."
