4th of July

"The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them."
~Patrick Henry

Today, on the anniversary of the beginning of our nation, let us remember that it is those who make difficult decisions, usually unpopular ones, often at risk to their own life and liberty, who are true patriots.  Here's a link to a list of 12 contemporary patriots.  There are many other unsung heroes out there who work tirelessly and behind the scenes to ensure that our government is accountable to the people, thus ensuring our freedom.  Remember our founding fathers were considered traitors in their time.

Have a safe holiday!
