But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations,  pursuing invariably the same object,   evinces a design to reduce [the people] under absolute despotism, it is their rightit is their dutyto throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”

There may be a worse case.  You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

Winston Churchill

Teddy’s Answer to Diversity!
There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism.

would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.

Teddy’s Answer to Bush and Obama!
To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right

or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.
Theodore Roosevelt

Teddy’s Answer to Obama & Congress
“We cannot afford to differ on the question of honesty if we expect our republic permanently to endure.

Honesty is not so much a credit as an absolute prerequisite to efficient service to the public.

Unless a man is honest, we have no right to keep him in public life; it matters not how brilliant his capacity.”  ­ Theodore Roosevelt
