Happy Independence Day!!

True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
If you want total security, go to prison. There you're fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking... is freedom. Dwight D. Eisenhower

If you're not ready to die for it, put the word 'freedom' out of your vocabulary. Malcolm X

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it. Thomas Paine

Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom. Alexis de Tocqueville

The Love of Liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves!
William Hazlitt 1778-1830

Have a very Happy 4th of July!

Love the quotes. Alexis de Tocqueville's words, unfortunately, truly ring true today.
