Dan Lewis posted the first in a series of studies on the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights at The Spitcracker Picayune. A very good read. I had the following comment:
"... else we chafe ourselves and bleed."
For this bleeding to happen we must voluntarily give up there trappings of Liberty in favor of tyranny. Remember, for your liberty to be taken by Government, you, as the governed, must agree to have those in office imbued with the power to strip your liberty from you. You, along with others, also have the power to empower Government to strip away the liberties of others, in most cases without their consent, through a majority vote to pass bad policy, or bad policy makers.
