Humanity has won its battle. Liberty now has a country.
Marquis de Lafayette
Let us form one body, one heart, and defend to the last warrior our country, our homes, our liberty, and the graves of our fathers.
Gun control impinges upon the Second Amendment; involuntary commitment impinges upon the liberty clause of the Fifth Amendment; curbing 'entertainment' violence impinges upon First Amendment free speech.

The right to a quality education is, I believe, the perfect path to bridge the gap between different cultures and to reconcile various civilizations.
