Here are some quotes for the 4th. enjoy

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!
--Benjamin Franklin, 1759

They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty or safety.
--Benjamin Franklin

A politician will do anything to keep his job even become a patriot.
--William Randolph Hearst (1863-1951) US newspaper publisher, Recalled on his death 14 Aug 1951

A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.
--Edward Abbey (1927-1989) US author

If there must be trouble let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.
--Thomas Paine

These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
