Excerpts from the Declaration of Independence:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
That summarizes what I think is worth defending about America, and thereupon can be found the foundation of my resistance against khawarij militants like Osama bin Laden and his allies in certain parts of the Islamic world.
and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
And there is the explanation as to why we have been so patient regarding this onslaught we are facing, when so many people are calling for more serious and more determined resistance.
Bin Laden & Co. won't stop until they have so angered America that we finally send them on their way to Allah.
The devil always overplays his hand.
