  1. On Thomas Paine’s birthday, I find it fitting to leave one of his best quotes here for the modern American Patriot.

    “December 23, 1776
    THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated'”

    1. Paine is a distant cousin of mine, as discovered by my grandmother during her extensive study of our family’s genealogy. Until this was known, I always wondered where my rabble rousing skepticism of government and my insatiable taste for liberty came from. Perhaps not only the sins of a man are carried down generations, but finer attributes as well? I am the only liberty lover with a fighting nature in my entire extended family, so perhaps it comes from farther back. No matter, it is who I am, and may the communists find it out, to their everlasting regret.
