Freedom and Liberty

I believe in a very limited government and the freedom to allow the people the freedom to create, innovate,and to conduct business with little taxes and regulation. I believe individuals should be allowed to protect themselves and their families. I believe parents should have the freedom to raise their children they way they see fit. I believe in free speech, the right to offend,and the right to be offended.
As I was just surfing around the internet I came across this video on Liberty and Freedom.It sums it very well. I only wish more people would get it.

Some of our freedoms have eroded away over the years. We cannot allow further erosion.

What comes to immediately comes to mind is free speech and the HRCs.
We need to fight for elimination of at least Section 13 of Human Rights Act if not the Human Rights Commissions and Tribunals in their entirety. We need to apply the pressure on all MPs to take action and not take no for an answer. Maybe we should try tea parties to apply pressure.

"A society that puts equality ... ahead of freedom will end up with neither ... " -- Milton Friedman

"Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and lost it, have never known it again." -- Ronald Reagan

"Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it."-- George Bernard Shaw, Maxims for Revolutions, 1903

“Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it.” --Justice Learned Hand, 1944

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."----
John 8:32 (King James Version)

"The price of freedom is eternal vigilance."
Thomas Jefferson


  1. One of the most important freedoms in our society is property rights. That is the right to not have the government arbitrarily confiscate your property. This is however exactly what the government does to about 50% of our income each payday. Just because we never got to hold it in our hands does not mean it wasn't ours. We will never gain back some of our freedoms until we shrink the size of government.

  2. Fantastic. I had to share that.

    Thanks, go ahead. I want you to share it. Everyone should be aware and not to take our freedom for granted.


This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
