"That Rug Really Tied the Room Together"
Among the natural rights of the Colonists are these: First, a right to life; Secondly, to liberty; Thirdly, to property; together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can. These are evident branches of, rather than deductions from, the duty of self-preservation, commonly called the first law of nature.
Samuel Adams
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual… No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him.
Thomas Jefferson (via mormonlibertarian)

I think it’s awful that people can tell you what you can and cannot build on your own property. If a man wants to host things on his property he should be able to.

Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities.
Ayn Rand (via decodethishit)
I live by a code and the code is simple. Don’t hurt me, don’t take my stuff, or I’ll shoot you. I don’t infringe upon the rights or property of others. I expect that same courtesy.

Guns don’t kill people. Tyrants who disarm their populace kill people.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

Phrases dudeistlibertarian uses in police encounters.

"Officer, I do not consent to any searches."

Never consent to a police search. Only verbally say you do not consent to a search. Even touching an officer can come with severe penalties.

"Officer are you detaining me or am I free to go?"

If an officer stops you and starts asking you questions; ask if you are being detained. If they so no, don’t say anything else and walk away.

'I'm going to remain silent, I'd like to see a lawyer.”

Never talk to the cops. Keep your mouth shut. Police are allowed to lie to you. Everything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have a 5th amendment right against self-incrimination.

I’m not a lawyer; just an informed citizen. These are just some of the things I do.

Here is how you can tell that these are bad days for freedom: Does the government need your permission to violate your rights, or do you need the government’s permission to exercise them? The answer is painfully obvious.
Judge Napolitano (via eltigrechico)
