A quote for today

One of our founding fathers Benjamin Franklin once said that...
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
It's often paraphrased as...
Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither.
Found here. If you scroll down you will find that this quote is found on the title page of An Historical Review of the Constitution and Government of Pennsylvania written in 1759 and was attributed to Benjamin Frankin in the 1812 addition. Of course there's more to it than that.

I share this because it's something worth marinating on!
