"The cry of the soul is for freedom.
It longs for liberty, from the date
of its first conscious moments."

Reader comments about this quote:
The desire to achieve excellence was as natural as breathing...until the welfare/governmental system turned far too many of us into dependants of one kind or another. What we have (devolved?) evolved into is a nation that wants to be "secure" and are willing to give away our freedoms for this false sense. Pathetic.

    If you desire security over freedom, you will soon have neither.
     -- jim k, Austin     
    'all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism," (Declaration of Independence) the soul's longing for liberty and cry of freedom will eventually enable their conscious duty, to throw off such Government. The freeman's soul appears to be awakening once again with a consciousness of the awful situation brought about by despots

    Your line Mike, we hold these truths to be self evident.
