Some Thoughts For Memorial Day

We should take this time to remember those who have fallen to preserve our liberty and sovereignty, and the best way to honor them is to continue to be vigilant and protect our freedoms and rights from those who would take them from us both from within as well as from outside of our borders.

"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it." -- Thomas Paine: The American Crisis, No. 4, 1777

"But you must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing. It behooves you, therefore, to be watchful in your States as well as in the Federal Government." -- Andrew Jackson, Farewell Address, March 4, 1837

The patriot volunteer, fighting for country and his rights, makes the most reliable soldier on earth.- Thomas J. Jackson

We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home. - Edward R. Murrow
