“When Injustice becomes Law, Resistance becomes Duty.” Thomas Jefferson.
Jefferson said a lot of things that were pertinent back in the day, and those same words — and the above is just one quote — are more pertinent today, because the assault on freedom is so much more intolerable today than it was in the 1770s. George III was a benign benefactor compared to Obama and his minions.
As over wrought as Sellin appears today, what he said here is no less applicable than were the pre-revolution writings of our key founding fathers.
I could not agree more, thus my long time tag line.
I am tempted to say that if we were transported back in time to the 1770s we would find the freedom there utterly breathtaking... and that most people nowadays would hate the early Constitutional America because they would think/feel that it was anarchy. (I've actually been called an anarchist because I said that I'd be rid of all federal agencies that aren't commissioned by the Constitution; this means that the federal government agencies would likely be: DOT***, USPS**, IRS*, Army**, and Navy**.)
