Fear: The Tool of Tyranny

• Ron Paul Liberty Report

How successful would the political classes be in expanding their powers if they had to deal with a population of individuals that were unafraid and who guarded their liberty with their lives? Liberty requires eternal vigilance. Be wary of the fear peddlers. The emotion of fear is the tool of tyranny.

Here's a story about me and the heroic Chip Saunders. We're strategic partners in the food cart trade. About a year ago now when our business was majorly impacted by the fear and lockdowns, the AZDOT, a government agency got in touch and asked us to provide food at truck stops. The truckers couldn't find places to eat. AZDOT took the initiative and just asked us to serve. If the trucks don't roll, Arizona gets hurt bad. In spite of any perceived risk, there was no discussion. We will serve Arizona and to hell with the personal cost. The Patriot Rescue Squad went into full effect. We did it because we could and because it needed to be done and we did it. End of story.

I've heard that the tree of liberty needs watering by the blood of patriots FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO INTENTION OF WATERING THE TREE THEMSELVES for too long. If you are still afraid of going maskless in public, let's face it. You aren't in the tree watering business. If you are keeping your business closed because they say so, why do you even have a rifle? I'm not saying use the rifle to defend your business, just USE YOUR BUSINESS TO DEFEND YOUR BUSINESS. Just do business. Our visible smiles are the new gun. Be a beacon of joy and sunlight in your dealings. We are smile evangelists now. Make it look like we are giving them away for free. In reality we are just collecting them for use at a later date.

“Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty” I've come to the conclusion that the price, referenced above, will, in due time, become so onerous and time consuming that one will find that the time expended in vigilance over ones liberty will exceed the time that one has to actually exercise one's liberty. And when this condition is observed, it should make for a highly reliable indicator that the “alter or abolish” threshold has been satisfactorily met. Perhaps more so the latter than the former. SINE QUA NON Liberty, Truth, Reason

Same comment here as my comment in the forum (http://www.freedomsphoenix.com/Forum), below this comment. If people can't seem to figure out how to stand as Men and Women against adversaries in government, go the PMA route - https://duckduckgo.com/?t=ffab&q=Private+Membership+Association&ia=web and https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Private+Membership+Association.
