9/11 Really has changed everything...even history

Past "soundbite" givers translated through a GOP filter.

"Fuck Liberty, I want to live!!!"
--Patrick Henry

'A patriot must always be ready to defend his government against his country.'
-- Edward Abbey

"Liberty is not a means to a higher political end. It is the second highest political end since 9/11."
-- Lord Acton

"Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. But still, no global warming."
-- John Adams

"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely - and thank goodness 9/11 made me see that as a good thing. My Halliburton stock is kickin' ass!"
-- Lord Acton

"Fear is the foundation of most governments. Guess what? That Still works."
-- John Adams

"The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion. Welcome to post-9/11 America."
--Edmund Burke

"Liberty is always dangerous, but it is the safest thing we have. That is why we must give it up to make it safer."
--Harry Emerson Fosdick

"They that don't give up some liberty to live will have to die."
--Benjamin Franklin

"Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost. Except for those bastards at the NY Times."
--Thomas Jefferson
