Concerning the Don Quixote quote below:

It was not the Constitution or the Bill of Rights that gave us our freedoms. It was the brave men at Trenton, Princeton, Valley Forge, Gettysburg, Normandy, Iwo Jima, lately in Irag, and many other places around the world. Paper means nothing if not backed up by arms. If you don't believe it, wave the Ten Commandments the next time some burgler breaks into your home. Read them to the pedophile and rapist. Faith without works is dead. It is the work of the policemen and the military that preserves the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. God knocked down the walls of one city in Israel's conquest of Canaan to show He could do it. The other cities were taken by the assault of the troops. Both kinds of operations were equally the work of the Captain of the Lord's Host. Read the book of Joshua.

When we no longer believe that the military does not do the work of God, then we will deserve to lose our liberties.

When Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor" he was not talking about debate, lying down in the street, fasts, and campus demonstrations. The signers meant war and force of arms. "Divine Providence" meant the wisdom and direction of their arms by the only wise God. Our liberty is given to us by God, and only American chickens will be the cause of its loss. The bloody feet in the snow at Valley Forge testify to its true cost.
