We're Building Up Our Foundation One Patriot At A Time!
"There are four boxes to be used in the defense of Liberty: soap, ballot, jury and ammo.
Please use in that order." - Stephen Decatur Miller
The soap box represents exercising one's right to freedom of speech to influence politics to defend liberty.
The ballot box represents exercising one's right to vote to elect a government which defends liberty.
The jury box represents using the right of jury nullification to refuse to convict someone being
prosecuted for breaking an unjust law that decreases liberty.
The cartridge box represents exercising one's right to keep and bear arms to oppose,
in armed conflict, a government that decreases liberty.
The four boxes (in that order) represent increasingly forceful
(and increasingly controversial) methods of political action.
