Patience in Persecution is the hallmark of great social transformers.  At the beginning of a change or reform the patriot is an odd man, brave, hated and scorned.

When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.

It was Ronald Reagan who said, “The future doesn’t belong to the faint-hearted.  It belongs to the brave.”

The problem confronting us people is that those who profess to favor freedom, yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning.

They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.

This struggle for a new voters register may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.

To both the informed and uninformed, the greatest threat to mankind and civilization is the spread of the totalitarian philosophy.

Its best ally is not the devotion of its followers but the confusion of its enemies.  To fight it, we must understand it.

As a soldier I had witnessed and crossed many arid land, swamps, through biting cold, through fire and laid at the doorstep of death, but awful reality of life, is the danger and threat of losing your liberty through tyrants despots must be fought with great zeal and enthusiasm than with guns.

Our concerted efforts must address toward the ignorance of that one voter in a democracy that impairs the security of all.

Freedom and life is a daily IQ test.  On the subject of liberty, it seems that most people are failing the test.

It is up to those of us who can see what is right to make sure we do not give up the fight.

FREEDOM IS NOT FOR THE TIMID.  An informed citizen is not easy to govern, because he or she knows how government works.

The truth and reality is that an informed citizen is better than an educated fool. Of which abounds in our nation!

It was Thomas Jefferson who said, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. … God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion; what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?  Let them take arms”.

Many have said and continue to say war is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things.  The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.

To those people who have nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

My problem with our public is that, it is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. Know that the credit belongs
