Words of our Fathers

April 15, 2009 - Tax Day - Tea Party Day..........Can't think of a more appropriate day than today to share these thoughts from some of our Founding Fathers.....

"Honor, justice, and humanity forbid us to tamely surrender that freedom which we received from our ancestors, and which our innocent prosperity have a right to receive from us."
Thomas Jefferson

"A constitution of government once changed from freedom can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever."
John Adams

"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
Benjamin Franklin

Are we living in the America envisioned by our forefathers, or are we becoming what they sacrificed so much for to escape?
