"If ever...

"If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced PATRIOTS to prevent its ruin" -Samuel Adams

definition of patriot...  

1.a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion.
2.a person who regards himself or herself as a defender, especially of individual rights, against presumed interference by the federal government

Power only comes into play when you you are talking about empowering yourself as an individual. And from there...

"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds."

"What light is to the eyes - what air is to the lungs - what love is to the heart, liberty is to the soul of man."
-Robert Green Ingersoll
