On Liberty and Freedom

Liberty and Freedom in America are under attack by the very people designated with safeguarding our country, and our Constitution. It's time for America to awaken, and take back our nation.

I don't know how many of you had the pleasure to watch the HBO mini-series John Adams, and for some reason tonight my thoughts drifted back to this powerful and well-done series.

I wanted to pass along a couple of quick clips from the movie--key points, key ideals, and key moments in the foundation of our counrty as they were given by one of it's true architechts. Take a moment to watch the following pieces, and let the message--so powerful and stirring--just wash over you for a few minutes, and remember all of those who have sacrificed so much so that we may prosper.

This next clip is from the scene of the Second Continental Congress in the summer of 1776, as the inevitability of war with Britain looms near.

And lastly, this is Adams in France explaining to the French why he hasn't yet attended the opera. To me, this was one of the most polarizing moments of the series.
