American’s Generosity

lichlitermcilyar021“In general, we have been too generous in the gift of office and power… to men who do not understand the genius of America and who have little awareness of the backgrounds of the American way of life…. Most of us will agree that it makes little difference where or when a man was born if he had this vivid sense of American history, if he has learned to put Country above Party. … if freedom means more than personal security and if he refuses to tolerate appeasement of tyranny as the price of peace.”

~McIlyar H. Lichliter,American Clergy and 33rd Degree Mason

Freedom Quote of the Day #15

thomas-jefferson“… rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our own will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law,‘ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual

— Thomas Jefferson (Letter to Isaac H. Tiffany – 1819)

Freedom Quote of the Day #11

oliver-wolcott

“Knowledge and liberty are so prevalent in this country, that I do not believe that the United States would ever be disposed to establish one religious sect, and lay all others under legal disabilities. But as we know not what may take place hereafter, and any such test would be exceedingly injurious to the rights of free citizens, I cannot think it altogether superfluous to have added a clause, which secures us from the possibility of such oppression.”

~Founding Father, Oliver Wolcott, Connecticut Ratifying Convention, 9 January 1788
