Let Freedom Ring!

Watching Egypt's new Independence Day! Live on Al Jazeera, CNN, MSNBC, Fox, Telegraph in UK, you name it, everybody is playing it.

Arab voices on Egypt

Well, President Bush, you broke it, now the Egyptians own it!

Maybe I should have said, Let Freedom Reign!

Freedom is a Fire in the Minds of Men - George W. Bush, 2005 Inauguration Address

“Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and, under the rule of a just God, cannot long retain it.” - Abraham Lincoln

Everywhere that freedom stirs, let tyrants fear. - George W. Bush

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have. - Ronald Reagan

Democracy is worth dying for, because it's the most deeply honorable form of government ever devised by man. - Ronald Reagan

And, Ironically, Ronald Reagan once said that the way to protect Israel is through new Egypts. I'm not sure this is what he meant, but it is, possibly, the most prescient statement.
