is to rekindle the spirit of Liberty in the hearts of people everywhere.
A conventional war is fought with bullets and bombs. No one is surprised that people die as the result of a conventional war. The world is currently engaged in an ideological war which is a war of ideas. This type of battle is fought with words and lies. An ideological war also results in death, however since there are no explosions, people are unaware that a war is even being fought.
One of the lies that most people fall for is the false dichotomy of "Republican vs Democrat", or "conservative vs liberal". Much like shadow boxing, these battles cannot be won, and they are endless because the assumptions they are based on are untrue. In any decision about your life, either YOU can make that decision, or the GOVERNMENT can make the decision for you. Most people are quick to assert that only they can legitimately make decisions about their own life. This is the only TRUE dichotomy - "individualism vs collectivism". Or if you prefer, "the Constitution vs communism".
Michael Badnarik travels the country teaching an eight-hour class on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The most important aspect of this class is the philosophical reasoning that justifies having any government at all. The ONLY purpose for our founding documents is to defend the ideas of "life, liberty, and property". Once you truly understand this principle, the Constitution is extremely simple to understand. Eight hours may sound like a grueling experience, but most students are stunned and disappointed to learn that the class is over at the end of the day. As a result, this class is unlike any that you've taken in your life. It is an experience you will not soon forget.
Liberty is NEVER an option ... only a condition to be lost!
If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed;
if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly;
you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survivial.
There may even be a worse case.
You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.
- Winston Churchill
