But we shouldn't have to just live as "free' as we can just get away with, we should be FREE, at LIBERTY without compulsion of any kind. The aim is not simply to get by within the super-structure of a government that no longer abides by the very acts that created it, the aim is to restore that which has been crushed, to allow people to own themselves, to be the judges of their own futures, to have a myriad of opportunity rather than being structured to a system of patronages that denies them the prosperity that is possible to them in a truly free Republic.
"We are not a nation, but a union, a confederacy of equal and sovereign States" John C. Calhoun
