Declaration of Independence Illegal - A Nation of Hypocrites

Remember that story in school about how our founding fathers overthrew a tyrannical government?  Do you recall celebrating these acts of heroism and American excellence?  Well, apparently some Brits say it was an illegal act and Abe Lincoln would agree.  

Secession from government, which no longer serves the people, is the duty of every American according to the Declaration of Independence.
"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. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

Resist Tyranny Before it Takes Root

I read a great quote from Churchill today.  It describes the precarious nature of fighting something before it's too late.  This is a very difficult subject and many people I talk to about liberty carry the attitude that, "as long as it doesn't affect me, I don't care."  Here is what I would say in response to those who will not lift a finger to resist tyranny.
"Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."   - Churchhill

Stealing Your Money for Obamacare is Constitutional - Cause I Said so - Rand Paul Replies

I just read an article posted by the ever insightful Washington Post about Rand Paul's response to the supreme court's decision to declare Obamacare 100% American as apple pie.
“One of the tea party’s folks — who’s, by the way, a member of the United States Senate — said, just because a small number of people said that’s constitutional doesn’t mean it is,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.). “Now, can you believe that? But that’s what he said.”
Can you believe someone didn't instantly go prostrate and worship people in official state issued black robes?  Paul must be some kind of weird reality monster.
