Happy Birthday My Fellow Americans! This quote has something for us to remember. Strength and Faith. They come from a quiet place within.
“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
When you’re down to nothing, God is up to something. The faithful see the invisible, believe the incredible and then receive the impossible.
Where liberty dwells there is my country.”
“We need a revolution every 200 years, because all governments become stale and corrupt after 200 years.”
“When tyranny becomes law, rebellion becomes duty.”
“The end of democracy and the defeat of the American Revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of lending institutions and moneyed incorporations.”
“When once a Republic is corrupted, there is no possibility of remedying any of the growing evils but by removing the corruption and restoring its lost principles; every other correction is either useless or a new evil.”
“The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that… it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.”
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
“When you abandon freedom to achieve security, you lose both and deserve neither.”
It’s almost as if he looked into this.
“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.”
