Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! ~Patrick Henry~, March 23, 1775

What do you think?

  • Lilystar ~ I'm not crazy, and I don't post anon. I say what I want, and I could care less who likes it ... or who doesn't.

    If right wing statement about loving their country, their constitutional freedoms and rights, and living their lives without the gubmint telling them what to do/when to do it/and how to do it are 'dumb' in your mind, that begs the question of what left wing people truly think about these things ~ and the logical conclusion isn't a nice one.

    I come from a family that has been military since they set foot on what is now US soil. They have fought in every war here and abroad, and they fought for freedom above all else. You yourself would NOT live in a country where you were free to spew what you do if a lot of good people hadn't fought to gain and preserve that right. You were born with it and you don't appreciate it enough to not abuse it. The fact that your gov't. wants you to STFD and STFU ..

  • I think that almost half the people alive in the US today would swap their souls for a freebie life ~ rather than give up their lives if they can't be free.

  • Puhleez don't compare yourselves to Patrick Henry. There is no comparison between that great man and people such as yourselves.

  • You people are fucking crazy, that is why people who are making these stupid right wing statements almost always remain anonymous, deep down inside you know that its dumb. Or is it because you think the govt is onto you?

  • Lilystar, you really think a quote by one of the patriotic founding fathers is a "stupid right wing statement"? I am sorry for you and the other uneducated, non-caring fools who don't know or care that our country is in grave danger from several directions at this time.
