Who said this quotes and do you believe them.

1. Liberty in all forms... economic and personal are always challenged by the self proclaimed elite, elected or not. Everyday individual liberty is under assult and a case must be made vigorously to protect it.

2. Many have found defense of liberty a hard price to pay. While others have found it much easier to surrender to the chains of Government.

3. A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.

4. Mankind is at its best when it is most free. This will be clear if we grasp the principle of liberty. We must recall that the basic principle is freedom of choice, which saying many have on their lips but few in their minds.

5. [SIZE=2]When the government fears the people there is liberty; when the people fear the government there is tyranny.[/SIZE]

6. [SIZE=2]The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.[/SIZE]

7. Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual

8. [SIZE=2]The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.[/SIZE]

9. [SIZE=2]I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.[/SIZE]

10. Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside of the control of Congress and manipulates the credit of the United States

11. [SIZE=2]Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice. Tolerance in the face of tyranny is no virtue.[/SIZE]

Number 11 is Barry G!

I like this one, too:

"Experience teaches us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent." -- Louis Brandeis
