Liberty Quotes that Inspired Lord of Columbia – From Benjamin Franklin to James Madison

Liberty quotes – from America’s Founders, to before the nation’s history, to those who lived all the way through the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, I’m citing famous quotes from famous patriots who further inspired Lord of Columbia. In yesterday’s post, I urged all healthy Americans who aren’t susceptible to coronavirus (and any other fearmongering tool the US government uses) to practice civil disobedience in a peaceful manner – taking to the streets and just gathering in the light of mandatory lockdown.

While I urge the older crowd and those whose immune systems are compromised to not partake in this and I also urge people not to visit them in these times – as this virus is a real threat to their lives and well-being – I will always stand by my view that mandatory lockdown is incompatible with a free society under any and all circumstances.

Especially here in America, where it’s our job to lead the free world.

And I’m sure many of those whose quotes I cite today would agree with me. These people are champions of liberty and they fought to either seek it, or maintain it.

Did you recognize a few of these?

I’m sure a few jumped out at you.

These quotes are highly motivating and they serve as staunch reminders to, even in troubled times where the government believes it knows what’s best for us, borderline Martial Law, remember that in a truly free country and society, such law cannot exist and thrive.

My favorite quote is probably Jefferson’s, and it hits home today – “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.”

Sure, the risks of catching coronavirus jump when people go out and about and again, for those susceptible to succumbing to such an illness should play this smart – stay home, and wait for the danger to pass – but for those of us less susceptible, we must remember our government does not have our best interests at heart.

One person has zero right to issue an order that 11 million people must follow – I’m talking to you, Mike DeWine. And the executive branch definitely, in a free society, has zero right to do so. Remember, our Founders created three branches of government. One reason they granted lawmaking to the Legislative Branch is that they knew beyond the shadow of a doubt, and it’s proven every day with our governors and presidents – not just Trump, but his predecessors – that the Executive Branch is the likeliest of the three branches to abuse their power.

Presidents and governors are just that – presidents and governors. They’re not kings. And we must remember that.
