I recently posted a pic of the White House, and got some concerning feedback….
Men must be ready, they must pride themselves and be happy to sacrifice their private pleasures, passions and interests, nay, their private friendships and dearest connections, when they stand in competition with the rights of society.
John Adams, letter to Mercy Warren, April 16, 1776
My FB friend replied the following….
Please try to be careful with the building for some of us it has historic meaning and stands for values and freedoms
I understand how you feel David, and respect your concern. However, this pic merely symbolizes what it will cost to bring the country back under the umbrella of what the founders envisioned. The second Revolution isn’t going to be any different than the first one! Our opulent White House can be replaced, our liberties cannot! #Revolution2013
