Time to Wave Old Glory on Live Leak

I invite all American Live Leakers -- regardless of your race, religion, ethnicity or political affilation -- to proudly display the American flag as your avatar here on Live Leak through July 4th. Show the haters that we stand together proud and untarnished as we celebrate the birth of our nation.

1. “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty.” ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy in his 1961 Inaugural Address

2. “Under the law of nature, all men are born free, every one comes into the world with a right to his own person, which includes the liberty of moving and using it at his own will. This is what is called personal liberty, and is given him by the Author” ~ Thomas Jefferson

3. “I am certain that, however great the hardships and the trials which loom ahead, our America will endure and the cause of human freedom will triumph” ~ Cordell Hull, U.S. Secretary of State, at Harvard, 1940

4.“For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail?” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

5. “My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!” ~ Thomas Jefferson

6. “My country, ’tis of Thee, / Sweet Land of Liberty
/ Of thee I sing; / Land where my fathers died, / Land of the pilgrims’ pride, / From every mountain side
/ Let Freedom ring.” ~ Rev. Samuel F. Smith “America”
7. “Posterity: you will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it.” ~ John Quincy Adams

8. “This nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” ~ Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg Address: November 19, 1863

9. “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, Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death: March 23, 1775

10. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” ~ Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence: July 4, 1776
