Liberty Man

| | Comments (0)

Inspired by the nationwide Tea Parties, today I wrote a song I call "Liberty Man." You can get the MP3 or watch the video.

It's a simple song with a simple message: I am alive, which means I have liberty, which means that I own the product of my liberty, which is the money I've earned and the goods and services I've purchased with them. To arbitrarily and capriciously take away my liberty or my money or my posessions is to strike against my rights as a living human being. This is the essence of liberty.

It's not about selfishness, of course; it's about self-determination. It's not about me not helping others, it's about me deciding for myself whom I help, and how. Say what you like, but at the end of the day, liberty matters, and many of the people in power, on both sides of the aisle, don't respect it.

"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt."
