“Life, liberty, and the pursuit of those who threaten it”

"Life, liberty, and the pursuit of those who threaten it” is a saying that has been printed on many images. The saying is based on “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” that is in the Declaration of Independence of the United States.

“Plastered on a photo of an aircraft carrier at sea...’Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of those who threaten it.’ The Navy should use that one more often. It worked for me” was printed in the Anniston (AL) Star on January 21, 2003. The saying was popularized in advertisements for the United States Department of the Navy.


Wikipedia: Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness
“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence. The phrase gives three examples of the “unalienable rights” which the Declaration says have been given to all humans by their creator, and which governments are created to protect.

A couple of billboards still hanging around:

Plastered on a photo of an aircraft carrier at sea..."Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of those who threaten it.” The Navy should use that one more often. It worked for me.

4 May 2003, Deseret News (Salt Lake City, UT), “U.S. forces are best, Rotarians told” by Shana Helps, pg. A15;
America never has and never should accept a fair fight as U.S. forces always will be better equipped and better prepared, said Air Force Maj. Gen. David E. Tanzi.
(...)
“We believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of those who threaten it,” Tanzi said. “Harboring terrorists carries an unacceptable price and this nation will respond.”
