The Words of Our Founding Fathers, Samuel Adams Saturday

"Among the natural rights of the colonists are these:first, a right to life;secondly, to liberty;thirdly to property;together with the right to support and defend themin the best manner they can."
Samuel Adams

"He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man...The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy this gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people." Samuel Adams
