The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“Show me that age and country where the rights and liberties of the people were placed on the sole chance of their rulers being good men, without a consequent loss of liberty?” – Patrick Henry, In a speech at the Virginia Ratifying Convention (June 5th,1788)

  1. Patrick Henry was right. Henry walked out of the constitutional convention in protest as he saw that the Constitution was a failed model. It created the monster, the supreme central government including Jefferson’s despised federal judiciary. Henry knew a tyrant like Lincoln would come along and destroy States’ rights.

  2. He was right, foreseeing what would eventually become what we now have. We have allowed it to happen to ourselves by our apathy and indulging in our personal lives when we should have been watching over those we elect to govern over us. By allowing them free rein we have created this present day police state and it will take great pains to return it to it’s intended path. “Ye reap what you sow” cannot be more true than now.
