    If I wake up tomorrow to find quotes from Simone de Beauvoir, Mikhail Bakunin, and Adam Smith I don't know if I will laugh or cry.

    It makes for better movie, doesn't it? Meaning freedom with danger than slavery with peace.
     -- Judith, Corrales     
    I am standing for something, both yours and mine in spite of the peril...
     -- Abigail, Newport     
    Probably a false construction or tradeoff. How about liberty with peace would not that be the best deal. Ask anyone or study anyone who has been enslaved and ask how much peace there is in that. Some including myself do not feel very much at liberty when crime, illegality, and fear stalk the streets of the nation.
     -- Waffler, Smith     
    Spoken like a true house slave, Waffler.
