Mike, Norwalk

OK, I like it

cal, lewisville, tx

I prefer to live in liberty rather than think that it is something of the mind.

jim k, Austin,Tx

I'm with Cal on this. There's not much liberty when you are are locked up in some Commie prison, as in Cuba or N. Korea.

J Carlton, Calgary

Good call Jim, And our version of those same Commie Prisons; FEMA Camps, may possibly be more closely compared to Dachau and Auschwitz. Time will tell so keep some powder dry.

E Archer, NYC

The US now imprisons more citizens per capita than any other nation in the world -- 80% of them for non-violent victimless 'crimes.' More prisons are being built at an alarming rate. The quote seems to imply that eventually this will anger the rest of the populace and bring to light the oppression of the state. I admire the sentiment, but I question how long it will take for the people to recognize the plight of their fellows.

Bob, KW, Fl

Excellent quote! It has nothing to do with your mental or physcial condition, but has everything to do with your spiritual condition.

Bob, KW, Fl

PS: When my spiritual malady was overcome, my mental and physcial maladies seemed more acceptable, especially in matters I could not change.
