Personal Rights VS. Property Rights

And Mr. Richard Henry Lee has the ANSWER;
.
"THOSE ESSENTIAL RIGHTS OF MANKIND WITHOUT WHICH LIBERTY CANNOT EXIST."
.
"the RIGHT of THE PEOPLE to KEEP and BEAR ARMS SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED."
.
IN FACT, HIS STATEMENT IS WORTHY OF REPETITION;
.
"THOSE ESSENTIAL RIGHTS OF MANKIND WITHOUT WHICH LIBERTY CANNOT EXIST."
.
"THOSE ESSENTIAL RIGHTS OF MANKIND WITHOUT WHICH LIBERTY CANNOT EXIST."
.
"THOSE ESSENTIAL RIGHTS OF MANKIND WITHOUT WHICH LIBERTY CANNOT EXIST."
.
"THOSE ESSENTIAL RIGHTS OF MANKIND WITHOUT WHICH LIBERTY CANNOT EXIST."
.
"THOSE ESSENTIAL RIGHTS OF MANKIND WITHOUT WHICH LIBERTY CANNOT EXIST."
.
"THOSE ESSENTIAL RIGHTS OF MANKIND WITHOUT WHICH LIBERTY CANNOT EXIST."
.
"THOSE ESSENTIAL RIGHTS OF MANKIND WITHOUT WHICH LIBERTY CANNOT EXIST."
.
"THOSE ESSENTIAL RIGHTS OF MANKIND WITHOUT WHICH LIBERTY CANNOT EXIST."
.
"THOSE ESSENTIAL RIGHTS OF MANKIND WITHOUT WHICH LIBERTY CANNOT EXIST."
.
Once AGAIN, "THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED."

Unfortunately he didn't finish with "by anybody". So some would be deities think they can do so based on venue.

In other words I am a free man some places and a subject others. I don't play that. But, because so many do, the slower witted among us have caused themselves harm when they don't realize just who won't bow. One always has to hurt them to make them believe one will. They have been trained to acquiesce to perceived power, and they expect everybody to do the same. Some of us don't. We extend the courtesies free men are due and demand them in return.

Agreed. I will only bow the knee to One. And that, because He rightfully deserves it, IMOHO.

The training is subtle. And, upon reflection of its possible source. I've come to the conclusion, it was from the WWII generation. Hard workers, good people, but intensely loyal to gov. Not remembering, that gov. cannot be left to it's own devices. Absolute power....

Your right about extending the same. That used to be called 'common courtesy' ad 'respect'? Don't see much of THOSE anymore....
