No Stomach for Abject Surrender

No Stomach for Abject Surrender

Still another great scene from the HBO miniseries John Adams. When I see the exchange between John Adams and John Dickinson who opposed independence, I often think of the socialists of our modern times who shamelessly cast aside their legacy of freedom and independence in exchange for an unconstitutional and overweening government that will do all their thinking for them and supply all their needs (or so they think).

If you are a Republican, do you want to be represented by someone who contributes money and energy to fight against the protection of innocent human life, and against the protection of the sanctity of marriage? If you are a Republican, do you want to be represented by someone who has given tens of thousands of dollars to elect Democrats? Republicans, you have such a person in your midst.

Hanging Together at High Cost

The Declaration of Independence was approved JULY 4, 1776. John Hancock signed first, saying “the price on my head has just doubled.” Benjamin Franklin said “We must hang together or most assuredly we shall hang separately.” So what happened to the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence?
