241 Years Ago Today

 Give me liberty, or give me death!”
--Patrick Henry

On March 23, 1775, Patrick Henry gave his famous speech that included the timeless words: Give me liberty, or give me death!”

Given that, it may seem amazing that today, in 2016, we still are fighting for liberty in the face of an ever-growing, rapacious, totalitarian government that would have shamed and infuriated our Founders.

But hopefully we've learned the critical lesson that liberty is not something 'attained', but something 'sustained' by eternal vigilance and the willingness to, from time to time, shed the blood of tyrants and patriots.
