234 years ago, a group of common men, and some not so common, declared that they would not go willingly into servitude; and started this great experiment of the American Republic. For their trouble, they were killed by the thousands, wounded butchered, homes and crops burned, bankrupted and imprisoned.
Do we possess that level of determination?

When you listen to this reading of the Declaration of the Independence, why does it sound like it could be written about conditions today?

What happened to those men .....

I think we esteem what they did too cheaply, unwilling to trade our creature comforts for liberty.
Liberty is much more about what you do than what you have; what you have can be taken from you.
And to maintain liberty, doing something is likely to be required of you.

If you stand passively by and are swept away, don't be surprised.
