Well, tumblindice, considering the world that I live in, I have had to come to the following understanding.
The rights that God blessed me with are going to exist in me until I no longer exist.
I cannot speak for others, but I came into this world a free man, and I am going to leave it a free man.
Then we’re of one mind: Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.
Check out the movie `Open Range’ if you want to see what two determined free men can do.
