Quote of the Day – 1/23/2017


Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. – Benjamin Franklin

Another good reminder in the era of Trump.  It won’t be long before many of his supporters are looking back at all of the liberties they sacrificed in the name of security and a rabid drive to “making America great again” and wonder what have we done?

America First was the battle cry of Nazi sympathizers in the 1930s, used to argue against American involvement in WWII.  Now it’s the battle cry of protectionist economics and a war on Islam.  I fear the results will be the same now as they were 70 years ago.
