"No man survives when freedom fails,
The best men rot in filthy jails,
And those who cry 'appease, appease'
Are hanged by those they tried to please."

    I heard Jordan Maxwell use this quote. Wow, says so much and is so deep in so few words. One of my favorite quotes!

    Actual quote is word "escapes" not "survives."

    This poem has been in my mind since high-school (1950). I think of it often as I am watching the reality of it happening today (2012). In 1953 I offered my life to protect my country and I would do it again. What is currently happening is the slow demise of the country I love and I am helpless to do anything to save it. Our freedom is in the hands of men who are extremely selfish and greedy. WE need to make some changes; and I'm not so sure the men running for office are any different than those that are ruining our country now. God help us! Gene Scalf.
