How Little They Understand About History

What a miserable schmuck.  He thinks our rights come from government:

See "Toure: Rights of Minorities Come From Government, Not Nature."

I'd invite this small person to study the history of this planet.  In those countries, centuries past, where government - be it in the form of feudal barons, royal monarchies, or communist nation states - decides which of God's rights are to be allowed to flourish, tyranny and subjugation reign.

In the way of enlightenment:

Thomas Jefferson: "Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny."

Walt Whitman: "There is no week nor day nor hour when tyranny may not enter upon this country, if the people lose their roughness and spirit of defiance."

Barry Goldwater: "Equality, rightly understood as our founding fathers understood it, leads to liberty and to the emancipation of creative differences; wrongly understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to conformity and then to despotism."

Milos Forman: "Because if you lived, as I did, several years under Nazi totalitarianism, and then 20 years in communist totalitarianism, you would certainly realize how precious freedom is, and how easy it is to lose your freedom."

Ronald Reagan: "How do you tell a communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin."

George W. Bush: "A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there's no question about it."

Jerry Fuhrman: What government gives, government - in the blink of an eye - can take away.  We the People are all that stands in the way.
