H/T to The Gun Wire
March 23, 1775, Patrick Henry stood in a Church and gave his famous speech to the Virginia Convention and, according to people at the speech "You never heard anything more famously insolent than P Henrys speech. He
called the King a Tyrant, a fool, a puppet & tool to the Ministry,
Said there was now no Englishmen, no Scots no Britons, but a Set of
Wretches Sunk in luxury..."
He threw out the famous line "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!"
Only a few generations later, we have sunk to the point that the national debate is how much free stuff one class can vote themselves out of the rest of our pockets. We work over half the year to pay taxes. The limo libs use morality to beat us deeper into taxation:
"Won't someone think of the children!"
"You hate minorities and women if you are against so-and-so program"
"Jesus would help the sick and poor, why won't you?"
You know what, Jesus would never have a Roman Soldier hold a spear to my side, or a gladius to my throat to FORCE me to pay for the sick and poor.
I guess our new slogan would be
"Give me free stuff, or you're a racist/ bigot/ homophobe/ misogynist!"
