Comment: Why give up ground?

Why give up ground?

In the battle for accurate perspective is it a good idea to give up ground on well established facts?

Example:

http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/declaration_transc...

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

Why has the concept of defending liberty fallen to those who work so efficiently at defeating such stands on firm ground?

Who claims to have the power to remove my power to defend myself?

Such claims are self-evidently false.

Why is that at all difficult to realize?

I'm asking, since I don't know why, since to me it is painfully obvious what is going on these days.

The liars have convinced the targets that lies are good for the targets, so the targets pay more for each lie each day?

Like this:

http://www.ushistory.org/paine/commonsense/sense2.htm

"Society in every state is a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one: for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries BY A GOVERNMENT, which we might expect in a country WITHOUT GOVERNMENT, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer."

Liars lie and you believe them?

Is that a fact?
