Mike Ferner: Has This Country Gone Completely Insane? :
And just for the record? Iâ€™m not paying the fine. Iâ€™ll see Adkins and Ousley and Dubyaâ€™s Director of the Dept. of Veterans Affairs, if he wants to show up, in United States District Court on the appointed date. And if thereâ€™s a Chicago area attorney whoâ€™d like to take the case, Iâ€™d really like to sue them â€” from Dubya on down. I have to believe that this whole country has not yet gone insane, just the government. This kind of behavior canâ€™t be tolerated. It must be challenged.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. –That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
see that word ‘liberty’ it includes the liberty of speech and conscience.
