Life, Liberty and Bacon

Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!

“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

Oh that we held up liberty as Patrick Henry did, nothing to me, is more important to our way of life as liberty.  Too many people believe liberty is dead, I disagree. I believe personal liberty is still ours for the taking, but like our forefathers we have to fight for it, not with guns, but with ideas and actions.
