"The Price of Liberty is Eternal Vigilance!"
"It is not that liberals do not know anything,
it is that they know so many things that are not so." ~ Ronald Reagan
"It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter.
Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace.
The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears
the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle?
What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have?
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!"
"He that would make his own liberty secure,
must guard even his enemy from opposition;
for if he violates this duty
he establishes a precedent that will reach himself."
~ Thomas Paine
"I seem to recall that Republicans wanted to abolish the death tax,
and Democrats objected.
Which party wants to make money off of your dead corpse?"
~ Ed Morrissey
