Editorials

John Locke

"I believe that the rulers can not take away our natural rights of life, liberty, and property. We should be free and equal as a person and as a nation. These government powers can not stop us, they don't have that much power over us. I feel that most people do no know this and need to be informed."

George Washington

"I want for are country to be free and not under strict rule of a place across the ocean. I want to keep all my soldiers as safe as I can. If I know we can not win a battle, I will surrender, but I will not surrender the war."
