[The United Soviet States of America] would come about as a result of various capitalist crises, the national government would assume more and more control over the economy…….In finance……. it will mean the nationalization of the banking system and its concentration around a central State bank….
~William Z. Foster, Communist Party boss Toward Soviet America,
Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosper by letting the Government take care of him, better take a closer look at the American Indian.
~ Henry Ford
We are witnessing a slow, steady takeover of our true freedoms. We are becoming a socialist nation, and whoever can’t see this is probably hoping it isn’t true. If we permit Mr. Obama to take over all our industries, if we permit him to raise our taxes to support unconstitutional causes, then we will be in default. This great America will become a paralyzed nation.
~ Jon Voight
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.
History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.
We have never stopped sin by passing laws; and in the same way, we are not going to take a great moral ideal and achieve it merely by law.
~Dwight D. Eisenhower
In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves…self-discipline with all of them came first.
~Harry S. Truman
“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
― Adolf Hitler
“How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don’t think.”
― Adolf Hitler
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police.
~Adolf Hitler, Hitler’s Table Talk, 1941-1944: Secret Conversations with the English translation copyright1953 by Weidenfeld and Nicolson.
The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.
With self-discipline most anything is possible.
