what country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?True.He also is not saying that the rebellion's grievances should *all* be ignored.
I think I'm the nuanced one, and the people who go around spewing the "blood of tyrants" quote are the ones being black and white.In short, you are being very one sided, very black and white about what he is saying in this writing. His position is nuanced.
Of course not. He wrote the Declaration of Independence, as I noted.He is certainly not saying that rebellions should all fail. Do you think he thought the American Revolution should have been a rebellion that failed?
Yes.He is acknowleging both the good and the bad that goes with armed insurrection. One key thing he points out is that armed rebellion is good for preserving liberty.
He was NOT saying, as was claimed, that we should have a SUCCESSFUL rebellion every generation and rewrite our Constitution.
Yes. I'm pro-second amendment too.Which is precisely what everyone pro 2nd amendment has been saying here.
