A great quote and true.
 -- Kevin , Queensbury     
    Rings true, especially when it is spoken by a man who lived through the evil plight of slavery.
     -- Odette     
    Thanks to the Patriot Act and its amendments or add-ons, Americans are now in the suppression stage. The question now is, are you prepared to regain your freedom? Semper fi!
     -- John-Douglas, Nassau     
    Now More Than Ever This is True
     -- Stephen, New York     
    Sadly, too many in the U.S. have become very complacent and blind to the ever encroaching and clawing hand of a Big Brother government.
     -- Mary - MI     
    It's time we start regaining that freedom now.
     -- Mike, Pleasant Hill     
    So many freedoms we lost in the twentieth century and still losing today.

    Freedom has been suppressed so long in Amerika that no one remembers what a land of liberty could feel or look like. If freedom, the concept - or reality thereof ever returned, it would in deed bite with keen fangs. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land, with its so successful long term proselyting of despotic socialism, through programs of state seminaries (government schools), police state enforcement (local standing armies), patron media and free lunch dole has removed freedom and liberty from the hearts and minds of the many. The false facade of safe and secure has also long replaced the animating contest of freedom.
