"Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death"

July 4th, 2009 by Myrhaf · 1 Comment · Culture

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.
