The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism.... It should be the highest ambition of every American to extend his views beyond himself, and to bear in mind that his conduct will not only affect himself, his country, and his immediate posterity; but that its influence may be co-extensive with the world, and stamp political happiness or misery on ages yet unborn. George Washington

It is impossible to mentally or socially enslave a Bible reading people. The principles of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom. Horace Greeley
If we wish to be free; if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending; if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest be obtained, we must fight! I repeat sir, we must fight! GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH. Patrick Henry
Those who sacrifice essential liberty for temporary safety are not deserving of either liberty or safety. Ben Franklin
....Aye, fight and you may die, run, and you'll live... at least a while.

OUR FREEDOM! Braveheart

One hundred and forty years ago, British philosopher John Stuart Mill (1806-1873) wrote:
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 a war, is much worse... A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. (Dissertations and Discussions 1867 Vol.1 p. 26.)
