"Liberty is never unalienable; it must be redeemed regularly with the blood of patriots or it always vanishes. Of all the so-called natural human rights that have ever been invented, liberty is the least to be cheap and is never free of cost."

-Robert A. Heinlein

I love the Heinlein quote. Col. Dubois from Starship Troopers if I recall correctly. A nitpick, but I think the last sentence should read "liberty is the least likely to be cheap".

I found your blog via your comments at rightwingsparkle. Very nice.
