We are talking about the purpose of Government and how Government is supposed to conduct itself by the will and approval of The People, We are not
talking about the status quo, Because the status quo goes completely against that which for example the American government was never intended to be,
The United states Constitution embodies in the most simple way the rights of man, Not just the rights of Americans but all men, Our Declaration of
Independence is a preamble to all of this, In a free society the Governments only purpose is to protect its citizens rights, Because when a citizen is
completely free he has the right to protect himself, In a restricted society he has the right to wait until the police show up....
Again regarding the United States, The Constitution isn't a list of rights that are given to us, But a list of the most basic rights that no Man, no
Majority, and no Government can take, Rights aren't Given, Because Government cant give you something you were born with, Your life is your own and
you have the right to protect it, You have a right to express yourself, You have a right to your opinions and beliefs, Government is by the people it
exists at our discretion, And in a free society the discretion of those free men is freedom and nothing else.
"I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775
