Best Read of the Day

by Smitty

The Dead Hand has a link to Mark Steyn’s “Live Free or Die” essay.
TDH says:

Steyn has hit the nail squarely on the thumb: Citizenship is what we DO, not a stamp on our birth certificates. And the larger Government grows, the fewer Citizens there are in any meaningful sense, as those who remain are transformed into wrinkly, post-adolescent wards of the State.
This is not 1789 or 1917. There is no La Fayette or Lenin storming the gates of our civil society. Rather, the destruction of our liberty and national character is proceeding one tiny step at a time, and it MUST be opposed as such. Otherwise, the BIG steps–like the nationalizations of giant swathes of the automotive and banking industries (in the past three months) or the health care industry (later this year) will have far too much momentum to stop.

Steyn has a immigrant’s passion for his adopted land. Avail yourself of a motivational read.
