The quotes listed below are from well known True American Patriots, both military and civilian. These TAP quotes highlight our nation’s faith and freedom that are absolutely essential to our way of life. Without these values, our nation would never survive the numerous ideological and hateful threats that exist domestically and around the world.

“History will judge societies and governments – and their institutions – not by how big they are or how well they serve the rich and the powerful, but by how effectively they respond to the needs of the poor and the helpless. The people united will never be defeated.” – Cesar Chavez

“Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down. Truth is proper and beautiful in all times and in all places. The life of the nation is secure only while the nation is honest, truthful, and virtuous.” – Frederick Douglass

“It is right and proper to honor our country, to rejoice in her liberties and to sing her praise. But this can be abused when we make it a substitute for God. We honor America but we do not worship her. The secret strength of a nation is found in the faith that abides in the hearts and homes of the country.” – Billy Graham

“It’s not tyranny we desire; it’s a just, limited, federal government. When a government betrays the people by amassing too much power and becoming tyrannical, the people have no choice but to exercise their original right of self-defense — to fight the government. Great Ambition, unchecked by principle, or the love of Glory, is an unruly Tyrant.” – Alexander Hamilton

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.” – Patrick Henry

“I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day. I know that the Lord is always on the side of the right. But it is my constant anxiety and prayer that I and this nation should be on the Lord’s side.” – Abraham Lincoln

“Nothing in the Golden Rule says that others will treat us as we have treated them. It only says that we must treat others in a way that we would want to be treated. As long as people use tactics to oppress or restrict other people from being free, there is work to be done. Without a vision the people perish, but without courage dreams die.” – Rosa Parks

“We’ve been blessed with the opportunity to stand for something – for liberty and freedom and fairness. And these are things worth fighting for, worth devoting our lives to. Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged. Our liberty springs from and depends upon an abiding faith in God.” – Ronald Reagan

“Negroes aren’t seeking anything which is not good for the nation as well as ourselves. In order for America to be 100 percent strong — economically, defensively and morally — we cannot afford the waste of having second- and third-class citizens. The right of every American to first-class citizenship is the most important issue of our time.” – Jackie Robinson

“I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other. I would fight for my liberty so long as my strength lasted, and if the time came for me to go, the Lord would let them take me. Every great dream begins with a dreamer.” – Harriet Tubman

“If no other consideration had convinced me of the value of the Christian life, the Christ like work which the Church of all denominations in America has done during the last 35 years for the elevation of the black man would have made me a Christian. Progress, progress is the law of nature; under God it shall be our eternal guiding star.” – Booker T. Washington

“While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian. Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society.” – George Washington
