1776 by Iced Earth, Gun Cover. Happy Independence Day!!! Today we celebrate the victory of patriots who shed their blood and sacrificed everything for this great land, and more importantly, the principles that govern it. Signing the Declaration of Independence was a death warrant and THEY SENT IT ANYWAY!
“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!”
- Patrick Henry
"They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
- Benjamin Franklin
“Unhappy it is, though, to reflect that a brother's sword has been sheathed in a brother's breast and that the once-happy plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?”
- George Washington
"He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself."
- Thomas Paine, on the topic of internet censorship, 1791.
