John Boehner final words…

House Minority Leader, John Boehner, delivers final opposition just prior to the disastrous health care bill vote in the House of Representatives on 03/21/2010.  I am so proud of him.  Among TRUE PATRIOTS, it may be remembered in the tradition of Patrick Henry’s “Give Me Liberty, or Give Me Death” speech.

—————————————–

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, “Peace! Peace!” — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

Patrick Henry – March 23, 1775
