Memorial Day : 'Freedom Means Having Notning else to lose'

''Freedom means having nothing else to lose''
Did we forget something for this weekend? Or for that matter many other days of the year where we stop and remember how we got our freedom to become prosperous and free.

And as I love this phrase from a 60's song sung by Janis Joplin, ''Me and Bobby McGee'', ''Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose'', we have to ponder current events and their impact on our country.

Now is a good time to begin the process of deciding who we are and where do we want to go from here?

Everyone must understand, once freedom is compromised as it is on our college campuses and in the major media today, and then it's lost to us. Do we just stand by and watch it be destroyed? What will result is freedom will be lost and it's return will be at best controversial and at the worst, gone. What will remain is a lot of gnashing teeth and finger pointing instead of looking in the mirror.

Edmund Burke said it best, 'For tyranny to succeed, all thst is needed is for good men to do nothing'.
