Doing Something You’ve Never Done

Thomas Jefferson said “If you want something you have never had, you must be willing to do something you have never done.”
Many of us have not yet tasted the sweet flavor of absolute Liberty. We may have experienced little bits of it, but not have yet been blessed to know of the whole thing. If this is true, then we know there is something that needs to be done. Something, that has never been done before, at least not in our time. History has shown us that restoring Liberty is possible. It’s not always easy, but it’s always worth it. I have recently learned that the road to Liberty is a road of sacrifice, loss, and trial. Take the War for Independence for example. Each person involved was faced with loss and trial we probably couldn’t even fathom today. The result, however, was clearly worth every penny lost, every life taken, and every sacrifice made.
We must be prepared to take on the same responsibility these people did to take back what has been withheld from us for so many years. The thought, at least to me, is highly intimidating. I feel, as I’m sure many of you do, that I could never amount to what those incredible people did so long ago. However, we must step outside our point of views and put aside our fears and doubts. In “Catos Letters volume 3”, Trenchard and Gordon teach us that “nothing that is good or desirable can subsist under tyrants”. Likewise, when Liberty is at hand, good and desirable qualities will overtake all other forces. It is my hope and plan, that we will be the ones to bring back what has been removed from us and restore Liberty to our country. This can only be done if we do something no one alive has ever seen been done before. It may be difficult, but oh will it be worth it. I long for the day Liberty is in command, when we can see the tyrant step down from his reign and bid farewell to his rule.
