Tree of liberty

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants."

Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States, 1787.

Interesting thought but I hope Congolese can find liberty without further bloodshed.

  1. I agree with your final sentiment, Theodore. Although I prefer Mark Twain's observation: "Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it."
