How Many Americans Would Actually Mean It Today?

Liberty was of such importance that it led Patrick Henry to declare, “Give me liberty or give me death.” Liberty was of such importance to Mr. Henry that he preferred death to the alternative. How many Americans alive today could say the same, and actually mean it?

All these issues that people base their votes upon pale in significance in comparison to whether government will secure or restrict what remains of their liberty. On June 5, 1788 Patrick Henry said something, that if every American took to heart when they voted, America would not have half the problems it does today, “You are not to inquire how your trade may be increased, nor how you are to become a great and powerful people, but how your liberties can be secured; for liberty ought to be the direct end of your Government.”
