The Founders did NOT resort to violent resistance, they resorted to the use of lawful force. Violence comes from the root word "violate". Unless you violate someone's rights you have not used violence, you have used lawful force.
Those who violate the rights of others, by the law of nature, deserve to lose their rights, and the use of force to deny those rights that they abrogated is justified. An eye for an eye, tooth for tooth, life for life.
Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Corinthians 3:17
