This is a macport.

"America was founded by men who understood that the threat of domestic
tyranny is as great as any threat from abroad. If we want to be worthy of
their legacy, we must resist the rush toward ever-increasing state control
of our society. Otherwise, our own government will become a greater threat
to our freedoms than any foreign terrorist."
