  • Life, means that I am free to live my life, as I see fit.. knowing the consequence I may face for my actions, and that I also am free to defend my family (since they are my life) and myself if someone threatens to take our life from us..
    Liberty, means that I have the right to voice my feelings and to be free of prosectution for stating my beliefs. To be free to choice my religion, to be free of descrimination if it hinders me from a job/car/building, etc. And to be free to make personal decisions for myself based on my body and my mind.
    The pursuit of happiness.. to me means the government stay out of my personal decisions regarding my health care, my job, etc.. and the government and people in general staying out of my personal life as long as I am not threatening a person or people harm in my actions.

  • It means my fence is the dividing line, my complete liberty stops when I leave my property, and yours stops when you enter my property.

  • It means we have the right to breathe, pursuit our own goals and be responsible for ourselves in a republilc and it's not the government's job to provide us with that which we are perfectly able to provide ourselves, only those things that require a single governing body - interstate/international trade and commerce and national defense.

  • It means being able to do what I want, (as long as it's not criminal), without worrying about busybodies, gossips, or troublemakers. Guess that's never gonna happen!

  • Being able to get an education, the right to be able to own property, the right to vote, to voice my opinions without worrying about repercussions. To be able to follow my dreams (legal dreams) and have my children live in a safe environment.

  • It means that I can raise my son to grow up to be a respectable man as I see fit. It means that we are free to walk the streets, speak our minds, get an education... We are able to become whatever / whoever we wish. This is the land of the free. It means me and my son can look forward to my military orders overseas ending so that we can return to the beautiful USA.
