First Principles: Freedom Does Not Come For Free

“Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it.” — Thomas Paine (1777)

As Veteran’s Day approaches in this season of thankfulness and blessings, I think on the above… a lot.  I am thankful for my brothers and sisters who have served in the name of the freedoms and liberty that our nation lives under.  There is perhaps no nobler cause to have lived for.
