Patrick Henry

How sad is it that, 2 days after the Healthcare Reform monstrosity passes through Congress,we celebrate the 235th anniversary of Patrick Henry’s case _or_give_me_Death!”>most famous speech?

How apropos are his words today:

Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

Of course, in her brilliant snarky manner, Tam gives the rarely discussed reaction of those who surrounded him. Right?

He was, of course, sat down and told that grownups were hammering out improved compromise legislation with the King and that they were certain to pick up more friendly seats in Parliament in the next election cycle.

It’s time to grab the pitchforks and torches, boys and girls.
