If you deny my request for a pardon, I will serve my time knowing that sometimes you have to pay a heavy price to live in a free society.> Huh? If he's being unjustly imprisoned, he can know, by the actions of the gov't people unjustly imprisoning him, that he's not living in a free society.
I will gladly pay that price if it means we could have a country that is truly conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all women and men are created equal. Huh?? Yes, it was conceived somewhat in liberty (ie. the ideas Declaration of independence). But that was 200 years ago. How it was conceived is not that important--what's more important is how things are now.
And dedicated to the proposition that all men and women are created equal? Equal natural rights i hope he means? And.. i don't think this is much of an issue at all in 2013..equality has progressed a lot...it's other things that are way more important where liberty is being threatened.......
