Reader comments about this quote:
In context, accurate enough. The quote does lend a semblance of substance to Patrick Henry's: "Give me liberty or give me death." It is a very sad situation when patrons of the current occupying statist theocracy infesting this land would rather have political correctness, freebees, an unrealistic / unsustainable economy, compelled compliance, government licenses, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, Social Security, police state confiscations, etc.), non-recogniton of individual sovereign status and inalienable rights, etc., etc., etc. rather than liberty.
