Some Quotes for the 4th



Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself. - Thomas Paine

Life has a certain flavor for those who have fought and risked all that the sheltered and protected can never experience. - John Stuart Mill

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. --John Stuart Mill




And for Shits and Giggles: 
"The worst thing you can be is a liar. . . . Okay, fine, yes, the worst thing you can be is a Nazi, but then number two is liar. Nazi one, liar two."- From the book Shit My Dad Says -- Just so you don't forget. :)

Happy Birthday America!  Thanks for being such an awesome place to live!  And thank you to all who have fought for our freedoms, from the Revolution to now.  I will try to live a life that will make you proud and do honor to your service.
