Rand Paul Shows Off His Liberty Maniacs Tee

It sure isn't everyday when a candidate for President like Senator Rand Paul shows off one of our shirts to the world - it's certainly a first for us - but that's just what happened this week!  How cool is this?


Thomas Paine Shirt
The reason I always loved this quote, and why it's so incredibly cool that a candidate for President of the United States would choose it, is that it boils down what the challenge is to the public in a representative republic form of government.  

"The strength and power of despotism consists wholly in the fear of resistance."

Any despot limited only by the courage of the people. 

If a people are filled with fear, overpowered by apathy, and frozen with inaction, then the powerful have free rein over them.  A free people must be a courageous people.

Rand Paul, and certainly his father before him, stand out in Congress as two men who certainly do not shrink from the costs of challenging power in Washington. 

Thank you for sharing the shirt, Dr. Paul. But more importantly thank you for standing for liberty where others merely stand for power. The numbers of us that actually notice the difference are growing.
