Letter to the Editor: Fighting for liberty

By JAMES FRANKLIN RINEHART

Editor:

We, too live in times that try men's souls. Like the founding fathers, we find the right to life and liberty threatened in our own country.

We are burdened by an oppressive government that has "erected a multitude of new offices and sent hither swarms of offices to harass our people and eat out their substance." A government that has left us exposed and vulnerable to a foreign enemy bent upon our destruction.

And we have our own "summer soldiers and sunshine patriots" who shrink from the service of our country.

But we also have many more courageous and dedicated men and women�some in Congress, others in the state legislatures, still more in the cities and towns among people of all walks of life�who will not submit to tyranny, who are now vigorously defending our rights and fighting for less government, more individual responsibility, and, with God's help, a better world.

This too is a time for patriots. And it is a time to remember that "the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."
