Bad A** of the Week - William Wallace

Here's a wild and colorful description of the exploits of William Wallace. (warning cursing and foul language alert for the easily offended or not so easliy offended this guy is very descriptive! But the writing style and foul langugage this author uses is what makes this entertaining!)


BTW I am proud to be a Scot!

If my need to be RIGHT is greater than my desire for TRUTH, then I will not recognize it when it arrives ~ Libertybelle

What an epic article!

William Wallace:
"Tell your commander that we are not here to make peace, but to do battle to defend ourselves and liberate our kingdom."

How many times throughout history have an oppressed people had to cast aside the chains of tyranny? I'm certain it's countless.

Thomas Jefferson said it best:
"The tree of Liberty has to be renewed from time to time with the blood of tyrants and patriots"

They're throwing rocks in

They're throwing rocks in Poland over the internet laws. Here ? They're waiting for an online protest.


The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good things is my religion. Thomas Paine, Godfather of the American Revolution

Establishment hacks always stand in the way of Liberty.

Hack: "This is our army. To join it, do you give homage?"
Wallace: "I give homage to Scotland!"

Very much like today...

Establishment Hack: "This is our party, to join it you have to support our candidate"
Patriotic Delegate: "I support the Constitution!"

*There will always be those who compromise principles. They have no true moral compass. They squabble for the leftovers that are thrown their way from the table of their masters. They want nothing but to hold onto what little power they perceive they have; They are a great impediment to progress. In this movie they are what ultimately led to the failure of Wallace to actually achieve the impossible. We must work hard to convert these establishment hacks to our side, or they will undermine our cause*

From Braveheart

Robert Bruce, Sr.: All men betray. All lose heart.
Robert the Bruce: I DON'T WANT TO LOSE HEART!!!.
I want to believe as he does.
I will never be on the wrong side again.

"Every man dies

but not every man really lives."
William Wallace

Is it not better to die like a man fighting for your freedom than to live until old age bound by the shackles of servitude?

Very similar to the saying...

"Once a Ron Paul supporter, always a Ron Paul supporter."

Anyone who's undergone the awakening to the ideals of Liberty will never turn their back to them.


I don't want to find myself in the future wishing I had made the choice to fight!
Now is the time! Ron Paul is the chance for freedom!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!
