Liberty or Social Security,
Liberty or the Department of Education,
Liberty or Medicare,
Liberty or Big Brother providing security,
Liberty or tanks, planes and soldiers in every corner of the earth defending nations and borders of people who hate us or don't have the courage to defend themselves.
Liberty or allegiance to a political party?
Patrick Henry did not say give me liberty or give me a nanny state big enough to provide all of my needs,
he said"Give me Liberty of Give Me Death!"
The Author of the Universe endowed us with unalienable rights which include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
You can be free or you can be a slave, you cannot be both.
Our Founders were Englishmen and subjects of the crown before they were Americans. I am certain that they said God save the King, that they served the interests of the state and saluted the English flag. But at some point they decided that they loved liberty more than country, liberty more than the crown, liberty more than a flag.
And so they decided to pledge their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to have the chanceto live free.
And so I ask again, what do you love more?
