"Liberty is one of the choicest gifts that heaven hath bestowed upon man, and exceeds in value all the treasures which the earth contains within its bosom, or the sea covers. Liberty, as well as honor, man ought to preserve at the hazard of his life, for without it life is insupportable."
[Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra] (1547-1616) Spanish writer

    Liberty, the universal elixir of the emancipated mind.

    When was the last time We heard any GOP leadership championing Liberty in any offical pronouncements, ever? Meamwhile, the dems are all-in for statist fascism for all.

    Thank God for Trump and his supporters!
