"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

Live Free Or Die

I would go into a long dissertation on why I chose to say this tonight.

I just watched a most impressive video of Bill Whittle, talking about the airshow in which a P51 Mustang crashed and eleven people died.

Death is an enemy, but only to be feared by those who don't know the Creator.  Of course we will miss the ones we love, no matter which side of eternity either party goes at any given time.

But to fail to make the right or righteous choices based on our fear of death is a terrible sin.

I would rather be assured of death for a righteous cause than to live as a coward for the sake of breathing.
