These Days In Which We Live

The words of Thomas Paine, below, are intact….but for one word being updated.

These days in which we live, are so similar to his, we should act NO differently.

December 23 1776 / 2013

These are the times that try Men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine Patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of this country; but he that stands it NOW, deserves the love and thanks of man and women. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly:   

“Tis dearness only that gives everything it’s value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon it’s goods; and it would be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. D.C., with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to tax ) but to bind us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER,” and if being bound in that manner is not SLAVERY, then is there not such a thing as SLAVERY upon earth.

– Common Sense, The Rights Of Man –
Thomas Paine


One thought on “These Days In Which We Live

  1. “It’s time for Men of God to stop avoiding politics !
    And being afraid of offending weak minded people.
    It’s time for the Men of God to stand for Truth and Righteousness !
    Just as our founders did !”
    “It’s time the Passion for what’s Right, and the Rule of law, to
    come into view on the plane of Truth and Reason !”
    – Brooks M. Conner
