Reader comments about this quote:
 -- Allen, DC      
The fight for freedom and the defense of liberty is a moral and just pursuit for all mankind. The occupying statist theocracy that now infests this land has all but extinguished that liberty which the founding fathers sought. Theocratic seminaries (government schools), the 4th branch of government (the industrial media complex) and all else as is associated to the occupying statist theocracy propagates despotism, tyranny, injustice, poverty, a caste system and war.
