That’s the title of a great book by Dinesh D’Sousa who is one of the top cheerleaders for America.

Here are some quotes from other people who really get all this freedom stuff, – freedom that’s under constant attack by the enemies of America.

“Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.”

— H. L. Mencken  (1880-1956) American Journalist, Editor, Essayist, Linguist, Lexicographer, and Critic

“Whatever the issue might be, whether it’s mass surveillance, no-knock raids, or the right to freely express one’s views about the government, we’ve moved into a new age in which the rights of the citizenry are being treated as a secondary concern by the White House, Congress, the courts and their vast holding of employees, including law enforcement officials.”

“When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, “This you may not read, this you may not see, this you are forbidden to know,” the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything — you can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.”

— Robert A. Heinlein  (1907-1988) American writer
