Define the word liberty. As you learn and teach at EOL please check your defination from time to time to see if your understanding has grown.

Liberty is a state of freedom and encompasses all our rights. First, one must recognize that our rights are not handed down from government, but we are born with them. I believe they are a gift from God. Government, at its core, is force. It is what we institute to take us out of the state of nature and form civilized societies. Our government was formed beautifully and we gave up very few and limited rights, so that all others could be protected. However, government is like fire. It can be either a useful tool, or a dangerous one. The larger it grows, the harder it is to control and the more dangerous it becomes. The fire has simply grown far too large and is threatening to become out of control.

Introduction

Some of you already know me, but for those that dont: I am 40 years old, attend Bellevue University, and have been active promoting liberty and trying to get Ron Paul elected for a few years now.
