“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.” — John Philpot Curran in a speech upon the Right of Election in 1790
With the vigilance shown there in Canada, liberty, at least temporarily, has been preserved!! Don’t give up, though; now it is time to get behind the legislators who will do what they should do (like our TEA Party people did in the Congressional elctions of 2010) and enact the consequences on those who thought to take away rights that they don’t give in the first place!
Hurray and Thank God. It is quite a reminder that the Lord is at work in our hearts internationally as parents and we all have this great fight (freedom to be God given parents to our children). We will sure keep Canada in our prayers as well as England and Australia and other countries. So glad you shared the news. It is great to hear good news.
