Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death

As we prepare to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the attacks on Sept 11, 2001 there are reasons for concern on the minds of many Americans. One major concern is whether there will be an anniversary attempt by those who would do us harm. Security has been beefed up at all major airports and the Atlanta Airport one of the worlds busiest is no exception.

When Benjamin Franklin spoke the words, ?”He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security” on the floor of Congress the only known threats at the time was a retaliation from the British Army. Patrick Henry would also add the famous quote, ”Give me liberty or give me death” These Founding Fathers were willing to lay their lives on the line to preserve liberty and freedom knowing that those principal would give them their security.

Ten years after the attacks of 09/11 “we have become a nation of cowards” as stated by the Attorney General Eric Holder upon assuming that position in the Obama Administration in 2009. Yes he was speaking about our unwillingness to discuss racial issues but a coward in one aspect is a coward in another. No one is standing on the floor of Congress demanding liberties but rather standing there to demand that the Patriot Act which strips Americans of many freedoms grated us by the Constitution be renewed.

Osama Bin-Laden said in a recorded speech immediately after the attacks that his ultimate goal in launching the attack was to bankrupt America. A wish that seemed absurd at the time but ten years later it’s the reality of many Americans. With a 9.1% unemployment rate, zero jobs created in the month of August, two endless wars going on and the invasion of Libya to oust Gaddafi can only make an intelligent person ask the question, “are the lunatics now running the asylum”?
