today's quote on liberty and safety by Benjamin Franklin

Just in case you don't know who Benjamin Franklin was...i linked his name. For those of you who do know who Benjamin Franklin was, I think this quote does a few things. First, I can't help but think how we've become slaves to our safety; which, made me ashamed of my own greed and fear. But, as you well know Benjamin Franklin along with our Founding Fathers would never settle for a government like we have now. The people need to take back this government and we need to do it now!

Any society that would give up essential liberty for temporary safety... deserves neither liberty nor safety.
- Benjamin Franklin
