ARCTV has posted John Ridpath’s speech on Patrick Henry in honor of Independence Day. I recommend it highly. The speech is entertaining and, more important, it reminds us that the American Revolutionaries stood on the principle of individual liberty. There were timid souls back then, moderates, as there always are. It took a a man of integrity and oratorical genius to steel their resolve. Henry persuaded people that there could be no compromise, that war was the only proper course of action.
The Price I’ve Paid for Opposing Donald Trump: this is one of my many misgivings about possibly voting for Trump. These cretins don’t need any access to political power.
