This person, for whom this site is named after, has advocated all his life while living it, teaches the idea of freedom also recognizes the source of it. It isn't from a tyrant that such freedoms are root in. It is out of love, 1 John 4:7-19. Note verses 18, 19 that fear is not part of this love of God.
“There is only one kind of freedom and that’s individual liberty. Our lives come from our creator and our liberty comes from our creator. It has nothing to do with government granting it.” -Ron Paul
It is only through this individual self governance called Christianity that a nation of ideas of freedom came into existence. Only by this self governance will it continue to thrive or even continue to exist. Deny this need of self governance we become no longer that light upon the mountain to other nations, we become divided and are divided terribly today. As a nation divided we shall fail to agree to protect liberty and eventually fall.
Have a blessed day.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand.
And those who have not heard shall understand.
