Own Our Liberty is about not depending on your government to give you liberty. Instead it is the understanding that we must give to ourselves and keep for ourselves, liberty. We cannot keep our liberties by believing our government is always honest and by silencing dissent with labels such as : Un-American, Conspiracy Theorist, Wacko and more just because we question our government. In fact it is our duty as Americans to question our government. The American people, in high numbers, have allowed this government to inflate its tyranny over the people and in the process we have not viewed our liberty as it is owned by each of us but rather that it can be sacrificed in the name of security, wealth, or some other promise that a government cannot keep. Also in this sacrificing of liberty has been the willingness of people to quell dissent.
To those who want to own our liberty once again, I say it is time to get loud, very loud and remind all people including your family, friends, co-workers, schools, media and any other who would label you Un-American, Conspiracy Theorist, or Wacko that in fact as Thomas Jefferson stated, “dissent is highest form of patriotism.” DISSENT THEN WITH PRIDE. For those who would try to label and silence you are in fact the real enemies to LIBERTY!
“Every step we take towards making the State our Caretaker of our lives, by that much we move toward making the State our Master.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower
“They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.”
