Visiting St. John’s Church in Richmond was one of the high points of my life.

Incredible speech, and delivered without a teleprompter.

Thanks. My son, now 22, did a "Famous Americans" report on Patrick Henry in fourth or fifth grade. I just sent him a simple question -- "Which famous American delivered a speech to the Virginia Assembly 200 years ago today? What did he say? And why?"

That speech still sends shivers down my spine when I read it. It resonates in 2012 much more than ever before for most of us.

Gentlemen may cry, peace, peace - but there is no peace. The war is actually begun. ... Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!

A speech and a summing phrase that will echo through the ages.

I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motives for it?

Drones and MRAPS and billions of rounds of ammo. Oh, my!

>>Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! <<

And what do we have today to speak for us - a bunch of mealy-mouthed sycophants that only wish to be liked. God will surely punish us for squandering the precious gift of liberty that He gave us.

This from Henry— Franklin’s proposal of June 28-for prayer at the Constitutional convention— and Lincoln’s March 30,1863 proclamation of a national Day of Fasting ,humiliation and prayer are three documents I enjoy reading several times each year lest we forget where we came from —and how truly anti- American this Country where I was born has become.I will continue to honor the Code taken as my own in 1969— And will rust in My God (the God of Washington,Madison,Adams, Jefferson Mason, and the rest is NOT Allah -but the god of Abraham and Isaac -the God that defeated Islam) and in the United States of America( that Christian nation as best defined int he unanimous US supreme Court decision Church of the Holy Trinity v.the United States and the book published by David Brewer in 1905 The United States a Christian Nation. -THE people I will trust the Government is nothing.)
