Are You A Sunshine Patriot? A quiz from Thomas Paine!

Are you a Sunshine Patriot? A quiz from Thomas Paine-

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but "to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER" and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God."

Does this sound like you? Are you a "Sunshine Patriot" whom give up at every sign of rain like the MSM skewing delegate counts or corrupt rigged elections pow? We need to be vigilant, and stoic, and when they look into our eyes, there has to be no sign of defeat, just burning unwavering dedication to the cause of Liberty. It does not end with Ron Paul, he has done his job, to educate the people like me and you. Are you nothing without your King Ron Paul, lol, seriously! Or has he taught us all, and shown us how to stand tall on your own, even in the face of nation wide ridicule.

right....I have no King

also if that became and issue, I should say that everytime Paine uses the word Britain, just substitute with our government today, and it is still relevant and spot on. The point was some are giving up because fighting the system from the computer is too hard and we aren't winning any states so I guess it's over! People lost their lives, and families, and gave up everything in the Revolution, and we are complaining that we can't change the country completely in the past 5 years! Then you are a sunshine patriot

Ron Paul is not a King

Seriously.

um.

You reiterated the exact same point as the topic, yet from the tone of your post, it is clear that believe your response to be contrary to the topic's "king" remark.

Or maybe you were trying to reinforce and agree with, the point that the topic was trying to convey.

You either read that king remark wrong.

Or I read your response wrong.

:-)

Of course Ron Paul isn't a king. That's exactly what the topic is trying to convey.... The topic is taking a light jab at the fair weather activists, especially those who might view Ron Paul as a king.

context

You are correct

I took it out of context. I guess I didn't read this closely enough, at least the 'lol' part of the quoted sentence.

Sorry folks
