Our Appeal To Heaven
Stand firm against oppression


From John Locke's Two Treatises of Government;
“What is my Remedy against a Robber, that so broke into my House? Appeal to the Law for Justice. But perhaps Justice is denied, or I am crippled and cannot stir, robbed and have not the means to do it. If God has taken away all means of seeking remedy, there is nothing left but patience. But my Son, when able, may seek the Relief of the Law, which I am denied: He or his Son may renew his Appeal, till he recover his Right. But the Conquered, or their Children, have no Court, no Arbitrator on Earth to appeal to. Then they may appeal, as Jephtha did, to Heaven, and repeat their Appeal, till they have recovered the native Right of their Ancestors, which was to have such a Legislative over them, as the Majority should approve, and freely acquiesce in.”And my apologies for referring to The Gadsden Flag as "my 'Don't Tread On Me'" flag!

Whew! Thanks for the clarification, Cavey. I thought you were being held hostage in Lebanon! ;-)

John Locke, my 2nd favorite philosopher even though he was an Empiricist. My favorite saint, of course, is the Angelic Doctor, St. Thomas Aquinas.

One other thing, Cavey, don't forget to bring your Semper Fidelis flag. It goes perfectly with the other two you will be bringing.
