"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 December 29, 2012: John Locke and Obey The Law

In this episode we talk about 17th century classical Liberals John Locke, and Algernon Sidney, and the importance of their contribution to Libertarian Revolutionary thought. We also talk about America's heritage of being a free thinking people, and one of secession from injustice and tyranny. We also talk about gun laws and the Right to Keep and Bear arms, and the real reason for that Right. It doesn't come from the 2nd amendment folks. In the second hour we discuss positive laws and how the State excuses themselves from the laws they impose on us mere serfs. Enjoy!


  1. An interesting article on America's spiritual foundation and legacy:


  2. That was a good read. The puritans were an important part of our founding. It is unfortunate that when they first came they got a little carried away with trying to force their way on others, and not allowing any freedom of Worship. But where would we be without that Radical Puritan, Samuel Adams?

  3. It is irritating to me to see the people being controlled by the government and yet they're fighting over which leash they prefer. -- Josh Tolley
