Thomas Jefferson condensed and penned the entirety of Human Liberty into a single sentence.
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.
To my mind, that is the most articulate, concise and eloquent explanation of the American ideal of Liberty ever offered. It is what you and I must keep at the fore of our minds as we fight for Liberty - it should be our North Star. When you are about to put a round down range or a knife in a neck, literally or rhetorically, rub that touchstone and be true to it, and God will approve.
Pat Buchanan is the closest we have to Jefferson in our lifetime.
