    Amen, Kyle. Make no mistake. We are here. The famous quote from Patrick Henry is ever bit alive within us – not just words but true MEANING and experience! On the one hand it is incredible to actually feel what Patrick felt when he spoke his ultimatum – and an Honor, sir! On the other it is dreadfully frightening. But as he said, it is becoming quite apparent we will likely have no other election!

    Consider, all, quite another quote, full of truth as well:

    “All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.” (Mao Tse Tung Problems of War and Strategy, Nov 6 1938, published in “Selected Works of Mao Zedong,” 1965)

    Let us never forget the cognizance of either quote…

    I loved reading this historical perspective on one of our current hot-button issues. I’m a lifelong Virginian and we have such an astoundingly rich history here but unfortunately, too many remain ignorant to it and have no clue!! As an interesting coincidence, the date that the “Affordable Care Act” was signed into law, March 23, 2013, was the anniversary of Patrick Henry’s speech at St John’s in Richmond…..which also happened to be one block away from the Federal District Court where our AG Cuccinelli became the first to file a lawsuit against the new law….about 45 min after it was signed!! :)
