Freedom is a dangerous thing, which is one of the reasons I'm in love with it. It's unfortunate that I share this world with cowards who oppose freedom. Why do I think they're cowards? Only a coward would oppose being able to make their own decisions in life. Only cowards would seek to be controlled. Only cowards would seek to minimize the risk of making a mistake by letting others control them. This is why I have absolutely no respect for anyone that supports tyranny in any form.
It never ceases to amaze me how many people are utterly terrified at the prospect of letting people make their own decisions. We have students protesting against their own natural right to defend themselves in the name of safety, cowardly communists in masks seeking to cause chaos through violence, and cowardly law enforcement that refuses to put themselves at risk for the people they are supposed to serve. Those of us that love freedom need to speak up.
A silent majority is impotent because of their silence. If you love freedom as much as I do, make sure everyone around you knows it. Be unapologetic in expressing why freedom is superior, because a very vocal minority can and will destroy freedom in the name of safety and security.
While I certainly don't oppose allowing people to be free to enslave themselves, I'm completely intolerant of anyone that wants to enslave me or others without their consent. That's what many people are trying to do, and they should be ashamed of themselves for attempting to impose the tyranny they crave on their fellow man. America didn't become the strongest nation in the world because of a bunch of whiney cowards, so why would we ever make the mistake of letting whiney cowards take charge of our lives?
