Unfortunately the current crop of idiots running the federal government do not agree....

"Simply put, the federal government may not constitutionally act in any way that limits the right to keep and bear arms. That means all federal gun control measures - including the acts of 1934 and 1968 - are unconstitutional.

And they should be treated that way too."

“A free people claim their rights, as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.”

"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

This was first written by Franklin for the Pennsylvania Assembly in its Reply to the Governor (11 Nov. 1755). Although many variations of this quote have made their way around the internet in recent years, they all hold to the same principle. There is not "liberty or safety" debate. It's liberty, or nothing.

Even in the face of what might seem like insurmountable odds, it's essential to do what's right. For us, that's standing for the Constitution and liberty. Are you on board?

"While all modern presidents should recognize Thomas Jefferson’s refusal to usurp war power, they haven’t done so for over a century. Still, it behooves all Jeffersonians to point to this incident as a quintessential proof of the potential for republican government to exist under an executive that understood the confines of the Constitution."
-Dave Benner

James Madison was pretty clear on this.

"The government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state governments, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government."

-Speech, House of Representatives, during the debate "On the Memorial of the Relief Committee of Baltimore, for the Relief of St. Domingo Refugees" (1794).

James Madison - the so-called "Father of the Constitution" - didn't recommend waiting for courts or congress or any other part of the federal government to limit itself.

In Federalist #46 he advised "a refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union."

Let's get to work!

Thomas Jefferson knew that merely choosing a new leader every few years wasn't the path to liberty.

"An elective despotism was not the government we fought for; but one which should not only be founded on free principles, but in which the powers of government should be so divided and balanced among several bodies of magistracy, as that no one could transcend their legal limits, without being effectually checked and restrained by others."

Is the NSA Constitutional? Learn how it was created in total secrecy - and decide for yourself.

“My view is this: Under the Constitution, the NSA shouldn’t even exist.”

States are not mere subdivisions of Washington D.C. They just need to stop acting like it.

This quote, from Jefferson's draft of the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, is a good reminder:

"the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their General Government; but that, by a compact under the style and title of a Constitution for the United States, and of amendments thereto, they constituted a General Government for special purposes,--delegated to that government certain definite powers, reserving, each State to itself, the residuary mass of right to their own self-government"
