Edward Everett Quote

“Freedom may come quickly in robes of peace, or after ages of conflict and war; but come it will, and abide it will, so long as the principles by which it was acquired are held sacred.”

It is the principles of freedom, liberty and peace that the statist theocracy infesting this land lacks. President Obomunist Goodwrench is an empty shell's mouthpiece spewing forth candy coated tyranny and despotism.

Yes freedom will return. And end to foreign aggression and manipulation as prescribed in the Constitution will be a necessary aspect of our freedom. An end to federal / banking / corporate cronyism will be a big part of returning to freedom and peace. Vote them all out, it's time to start over.

jim k, Austin

Amen to J and Mike.

The last two lines are the operative conditions that are under attack by Obama and company.

If they were held sacred then there would be no wars but alas they not so the vicious cycle continues

    Principles are the first thing to go in an age when nothing is sacred. The second is freedom.
