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. Thomas JeffersonAnother article here well worth the time to read as it goes into detail with respect to our Government spending us into oblivion. It can not be emphasized enough that the Government must live within it's means and it has not done so in a long time hence the position we are in. You do not have to go very far to see how many cities or entire states are flat broke and there will be a point very soon to where they can no longer borrow money to pay for things they shouldn't have promised in the first place.
