Note to G Dub

Mr. Bush, I believe Ben was trying to tell you something all those years ago...

"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759US author, diplomat, inventor, physicist, politician, & printer (1706 - 1790)

I am going to put that one on my quote blog.

I think you should fax it to the White HOuse, seriously.

I'm afraid old GWB wouldn't see it and wouldn't get it anyway.

The thing I like about this quote is that it also has meaning to those that work for large impersonal organizations. They rationalize giving up "freedoms" for the sake of "security". False security at best...
