FIRST MOVIE THAT WENT DIRECT TO YOUR TOILET BUT THE PRINCIPLE STILL STANDS WHAT SEPARATES

CONSERVATIVES FROM LIBERALS IS CONSERVATIVES THINKS GOVERNMENT IS BAD AND PEOPLE ARE GOOD.

UNLESS THE PEOPLE WORK IN GOVERNMENT THEN THEY ARE BAD.

BUT THEY CAN LEAVE GOVERNMENT, GO TO A LOBBYING FIRM AND BECOME GOOD AGAIN.

IT'S A COMPLICATED THEORY.

BUT FREEDOM LOVES HAVE A PLAN TO CARVE OUT A HAVEN OF LIBERTY, SAFE FROM THE TYRANTS.

>> THERE'S A MOVE IN IDAHO BY A GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT WANT TO START THE COMMUNITY.

>> THEY ARE CALL IT THE SIT ADELE.

>> IT'S FAMILIES THAT CHOOSE TO LIVE TOGETHER IN ACCORDANCE WITH THOMAS JEFFERSON'S IDEAL OF

RIGHTFUL LIBERTY.

>> Jon: THOMAS JEFFERSON'S RIGHTFUL IDEAL OF LIBERTY.

I BELIEVE WE HAVE A CLIP OF HIM EXPLAINING THAT.

>> LAW IS THE TYRANT'S WILL AND ALWAYS SO WHEN IT VIOLATES THE RIGHTS OF INDIVIDUAL.

>> Jon: SO WHAT WOULD THIS LOOK LIKE?

>> THEY WOULD BUILD A HUGE PERIMETER AROUND THE WHOLE THING, SEVERAL SMALLER

PERIMETERS, TURRETS AND TOWERS.

THEY SAY THAT THEY MAY FIND LIVING WITHIN THE COMMUNITY IS INCATIBLE WITH THEIR EXISTING

IDEA YOJ.
