Protecting Our Liberties

By Cassandra D

Here's a thought-provoking post from Jack Grant at The Moderate Voice.

Read the whole thing, but as an appetizer, here are some great quotes it refers to:

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
-William Pitt

Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security, will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.
-Benjamin Franklin

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
-Ronald Reagan
