Comment: "I want to die a slave to principles. Not to men."

"I want to die a slave to principles. Not to men."

Don't look for leaders. There aren't any. A strong leader makes for a weak people.

This was the philosophy of Emiliano Zapata and sure seemed to me to be the philosophy of Dr. Ron Paul. Both of these men were not "leaders" in the conventional sense of the word. Rather, they were/are the finest teachers of Liberty who walk(ed) the talk.

I urge everyone to watch this film sometime and learn from it. It is the people who need to show strength in times like these:
