Henry Steele Commager Quote

“Freedom is not a luxury that we can indulge in when at last we have security and prosperity and enlightenment; it is, rather, antecedent to all of these, for without it we can have neither security nor prosperity nor enlightenment.”

Preserving freedom is a constant fight since liberals are like cockroaches,hard to get rid of and always busy.

J Carlton, Calgary

Well put Jim...or maybe like termites...eating away at our foundation.

E Archer, NYC

Freedom is not preserved by deserting it at home.

Freedom is the Right to protect Our Liberty. for without Liberty, there is no Secured Inheritance. Usury, No Doubt, at an All time High. If you can not get rid of bugs, you can't outsmart a dog. Please, smarter not harder. To ignore, is to take a stand, patience is the key. Be as Good as you can be. otherwise your effort is lost.
