Founders' Daily Quote: 9 Oct 08

"We established however some, although not all its [self-government] important principles. The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent, (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved,) or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed."

--Thomas Jefferson (letter to John Cartwright, 1824); Reference: The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, Memorial Edition, Lipscomb and Bergh, ed., vol. 16 (45)

Yes. Armed with FACTS and GUNS.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
