Liberty Tree

Just sounds better.

it's from the TJ quote

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." -- Thomas Jefferson.

It was also used for the title of the original 2 hour release of the Ron Paul grassroots documentary "For Liberty: How the Ron Paul Revolution Watered the Withered Tree of Liberty"

Classic photo.

I was there

My friend left to get a drink and when he came back he was laughing while saying, "they're in the trees!"

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

The Barricades Of Heaven

The Barricades Of Heaven(Solo Acoustic)

Life became the Paradox, the Bear, the Rouge et Noir
And the stretch of road running to L.A.

Pages turning
Pages we were years from learning
Straight into the night our hearts were flung
Better bring your own redemption when you come
To the barricades of Heaven where I'm from

All the world was shining from those hills
The stars above and the lights below
Among those there to test their fortunes and their wills
I lost track of the score long ago

====

Childhood comes for me at night
Voices of my friends
Your face bathing me in light
Hope that never ends

Pages turning
Pages torn and pages burning
Faded pages, open in the sun
Better bring your own redemption when you come
To the barricades of Heaven where I'm from.

I see your tree of liberty and raise you a "truck of freedom"

This photo finally got my FB friend off their...

you know what... I've been posting RP info for over a month with no responses from my FB friends. I was really beginning to wonder...are all my FB friends really so brainwashed or are they just afraid to publicly support RP?

I posted this beautiful picture the other day and one of my friends hit the "like" button. That one simple act warmed my heart and gave me hope. I hope the rest will catch on fast.

I posted another RP photo...the "Where's RP been" comment by Fox News showing all the massive RP crowds. I got another "like" from another FB friend. Another sign of hope (albeit small)...

Onward and Upward!

(p.s. - these friends are in California!)

I'm in California

and the force is strong here.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.
