Thanks to all who commented

While I had to agree to disagree with many of the comments, the input of all had value. Those who disagreed with me, helped me clarify my position. After replying to many informed comments, I became aware of many flaws in my original post, so I've made significant changes to the original version.

The Daily Paul, and the platform it provides for a civil exchange of ideas, is a testament to the durability and timeless nature of our founding principles. Don't ever give up the fight for individual liberties, even if the battle appears lost. Future generations may look back on our work and be inspired to carry on the fight. In sports we teach athletes to compete even if the game appears lost, and our unalienable rights are far more important than a game.

Our founders ended the Declaration of Independence with these words: "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor". They understood that the price of freedom is total committment, with no guarantee of success. God bless you and God bless America.
