I know you guys will Love this, and it fits perfectly here on your thread, i think Advisor. From the great Patrick Henry.
please click this link and read his entire quote, i believe it fits us today just as it did our forefathers back then
Please Everyone Read the Entire quote! Mr Henry has something to tell us right now, today. And let us follow the torch once agian.
"This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part I consider it as nothing less
than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way
that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such
a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty towards the
majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings...."
This speech is what brought our nation into existance, in a sense. Let us read it and revive that nation, which has been all but lost.
"He spoke without any notes in a voice that became louder and louder, climaxing with the now famous ending. Following his speech, the vote was taken
in which his resolutions passed by a narrow margin, and thus Virginia joined in the American Revolution."
Ok, now ill shutup (Ill try seriously lol)
