Quote of the day - Quaker

“Could the peaceable principle of the Quakers be universally established, arms and the art of war would be wholly extirpated: But we live not in a world of angels...I am thus far a Quaker, that I would gladly agree with all the world to lay aside the use of arms, and settle matters by negotiation: but unless the whole will, the matter ends, and I take up my musket and thank Heaven He has put it in my power.”

-Thomas Paine

There are people in the world. Bad people who will not lay down their arms. Because of this we must remain armed. A Simple concept, and one which the founders understood.
