"So this is how liberty dies: With thunderous applause"
Now I know how the character was suppose to feel. Watching the celebrations on TV; mindless joy at his victory.
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to selfishness;
From selfishness to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage
Surreal, just surreal. At least I can (maybe) some day tell my grand kids I was there when liberty and freedom died. Of course I’ll have to whisper the story to them somewhere out of earshot of the government monitors.
It’s a big deal. First black president and gets re-elected. he will be a hero for the left because he didn’t end up like Carter.
But he could end up like W Bush.
Doesn't matter - they'll race each other to see who can turn you in first and receive your food ration.
Be careful. If your grand-kids are schooled in government schools, they just might rat you out for telling them about liberty and freedom.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction”
