“The fact that men throughout history have revolted against
their own governments gives overwhelming support to the theory that men have
inherent rights, and that they know it.
There have been many thousands of revolutions since evil or ignorant men
first learned how to organize the police force (government) in such a way as to
deprive others of their lives, liberty, and property. And in almost all of those revolutions, you
can generally find a common theme. That
is, the rebelling people claimed that their own government was oppressing them
and depriving them of their lives or liberty or property.” - Dean Russell
government was ever founded or ever preserved its liberty, without uniting the
characters of the citizen and soldier in those destined for the defence of the
state.... Such are a well regulated militia, composed of the freeholders,
citizen and husbandman, who take up arms to preserve their property, as
individuals, and their rights as freemen." - Josiah
Quincy, Jr., Thoughts on Standing Armies, 1774
“But it happens that, at the same period and amongst the same
nations in which men conceive a natural contempt for the rights of private
persons, the rights of society at large are naturally extended and
consolidated: in other words, men become less attached to private rights just
when it is most necessary to retain and defend what little remains of them.” – Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy
in America 
"A militia when properly formed are in
fact the people themselves ... and include... all men capable of bearing arms.
... The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly
anti-republican principle." - Richard
Lee, Federal Farmer LIII

"He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppresion; for if he violates this duty he estabalishes a precedent that will reach to himself." -Thomas Paine, Common Sense 1776
