George Patton sends: Restore Liberty in My Lifetime?
"We in the liberty movement all talk about “restoring rightful liberty” whatever that means to the folks talking about it. Many of us call ourselves three percenters, alluding to the three percent of the patriots who fought for liberty during the revolutionary war."
"The Patriots were motivated by equality, economic mobility and freedom of religion."
"What percentage of Americans are motivated by these three things today? We read daily of regular folks begging the government to take their rights away under the notion that we “might” be safer. The number of folks that really want equality of opportunity is almost none. Attacks on economic mobility occur from every side of the political spectrum. Freedom of religion? Americans are embracing religion at a smaller number every year it seems."
"So, what are we restoring? How many Americans even recognize these motivations enough to even want them?"
