I HAVE SEEN FAR TOO MUCH DESPAIR AND DEFEATISM, TOO MANY COMMENTS THAT SUGGEST THERE IS NO HOPE FOR AMERICA AND THE ONLY THING LEFT TO DO IS POUR A GLASS OF WINE AND WATCH THE SUN GO DOWN. But those comments testify to how sheltered Americans are from the struggles against tyranny around the world.

Eight years of Obama is bad, but try sixty-nine years of Communism on for size. That’s what generations of Russians had to live through. Ask some of the conservative activists in Europe who have never had any of the freedoms that we still take for granted whether they’ve given up hope. Ask people from countries where criticism of Islam can mean death, whether they’ve given up hope.

There are countless tales of courage over the last century of men and women who did not stop fighting, who did not stop teaching their children so that they would not stop resisting. And those stories have not ended. They continue today in Europe, Asia and South America. And those people would envy the conditions under which we fight, where we can protest without being shot or sent to prison, where we can have a shot at winning elections if we try hard enough.

Where we are, compared to 100 percent of the rest of the world, still free. – Daniel Greenfield, Sultan Knish (more…)

“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Socialist.

“Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a trade unionist.

“Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jew.

“Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.” – Joseph Farah, WND (more…)

“… WE HAVEN’T TACKLED ISLAM BECAUSE WE HAVE FAMILIES […] and I think the worst thing you can say about a group in a free society is that you’re afraid to talk about it—I can’t think of anything more horrific. […]

“Teller and I have been brutal to Christians, and their response shows that they’re good *** Americans who believe in freedom of speech. We attack them all the time, and we still get letters that say, ‘We appreciate your passion. Sincerely yours, in Christ.’ Christians come to our show at the Rio and give us Bibles all the time. They’re incredibly kind to us …” – Penn Jillette, The Las Vegas Weekly, June 24, 2010

“Am I the only person who would feel more excited about celebrating independence from a tyrannical government if we weren’t back to being ruled by a tyrannical government?” – Anonymous
