Elbridge Gerry

A Quote by Elbridge Gerry on army, destruction, government, liberty, military, order, and people

What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty. Whenever governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.
