“While the common man takes the hits, our Founding Fathers are rolling in their graves. It’s time we stand up for what we believe. You’re bringing this nation to its knees and I want my country back….Whatever happened to Made in the USA? I am not pointing fingers or spreading hate. This is the land of the free, not a welfare state. When we bleed, it’s Red White and Blue. I dare you to mess with the military’s pay, or take our seniors’ benefits away. Folks like me will not take it lying down. I’m tired of hearing we have to keep God out of everything, so we don’t offend anyone. If you had any sense, you would get on your knees and pray that He comes back to save us today.”

-Matt Dylan

“That dream was a prophecy; it came to me in my cell to comfort me when all the world was against me and death staring me in the face. It gave me hope, and strength, and courage, without which I should certainly have sickened and died during my long confinement. Something tells me I will spend the remainder of my days in peace, and with my family and friends. My life, since the war commenced, has been a turbulent one, full of danger and attended throughout with narrow escapes and reckless adventures, but much of it is known only to myself and it will die with me.” Wartime Diary

-R.R. Hancock


“The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that man may become robots.”

“It is not the business of government to make men virtuous or religious, or to preserve the fool from the consequences of his own folly. Government should be repressive no further than is necessary to secure liberty by protecting the equal rights of each from aggression on the part of others, and the moment governmental prohibitions extend beyond this line they are in danger of defeating the very ends they are intended to serve.”

-Henry George


“But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!”
