The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy is taking the rest of the weekend off to celebrate the fact that we don’t call supper “tea” and that 233 years ago some guys had the spine to stand up to the most powerful man in the world and say, “Enough!”
Back in the days leading up to the revolution Patrick Henry declared, “I am no longer a Virginian, Sir but an American!” We could use a few men and women like that today.
Do something tomorrow to say that you undersatnd the chance these men took when they signed their names under the final line of the Declaration,
“ And for the support of this Declaration with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”
I’ll be back next week with my take on Sarah Palin’s resignation and more. Have a nice holiday.
