Rightful Liberty & the III Percent
OK folks, when I start getting hate mail for things said on blogs (not my own!) that I consider to be "in our community" I think that gives me a position to work with you and clarify a few points.
I was asked what, exactly, the III Percent advocates.
That is a fair question, but can only really be answered with: How much is a bunch of nickels?
There are too many of us with too many varied positions to answer that question neatly, tied with a bow.
But, what I think binds us all, from Secessionists to Constitutionalists to our hardcore Libertarians and Anarchists, is that we all choose Liberty over Collectivism.
So here is my proposal: When asked "What the III Percent advocates" I would like to offer as our "Official" (as loosely as that word can be applied) position to be from Thomas Jefferson:
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. ~ Thomas Jefferson
I've posted a poll at the right column. Please take a moment and let me know if you have a problem with that quote as our "Official" position. Feel free to comment as well.
Bloggers: If you agree with the quote and position, I'd love to see it start to propagate across our blogs.
III Percent Patriots: Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. ~ Thomas Jefferson
