Something For You To Think About

Liberty or Tyranny?


We are at a great turning point in this country. Will we live in freedom and liberty, or will we stand for tyranny. Nine, fallible human beings will determine whether you enjoy your freedom or be forced into a tyrannical system couched in Obama Care. Nine humans, who are no better than you or I, will decide whether you have a choice in how you will live your lives, not your heart where true freedom lies.

What would our founders think about what is happening in the land where they gave their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor?

We are close to the anniversary of Patrick Henry’s speech, given on March 23, 1775. The last part of his speech is more important now than it has ever been.

“There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

It is in vain, sir, to extentuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace–but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! “

Where will you stand come June 2012, when these nine women and men decide your fate?
