One word of truth outweighs the world."

We could, and should be like this
 -- Thomas William Ullom Sr. C.P., Thompsonville     
     -- ann, jacksonville     
    Such a step of courage may not quite be so simple. How many are courageous enough to abide NOT the despots compelled compliance, license, victimless crimes, larceny (the 2nd plank of the communist manifesto for example) or participate in such programs as Obama Care or Social Security?
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    A lie gets around the world before the truth can get it's pants on. From Winston Churchill and not necessary verbatim .
     -- jim k, Austin     
    With understanding is strength, by the Word of Truth, by the power of God, by the armor of Right. " How Forcible are Right words ! " Through wisdom is an house builded ; and by understanding it is established. Our House of Liberty is the rock upon which the Republic rest. It is very fitly framed together ! As the ancient " landmark " has never been removed !!
    Courage is to just jump, do it. ! Landmarks are popping up all around the planet now, we see better now than ever before !!
    Jim, I will be laughing all day long, thanks ! Well said Mike !
     -- Ronw13, Yachats Or     
    Many are courageous yet few are awake!
     -- Robert, St. Emilion, France
