You may be *born* free and equal, but those rights are taken away by brutal dictators, abusive family members and employers, etc. Just because one is born free doesn't mean they have the choice to stay free.

If people don't have the choice to stay free then your entire argument collapses. Furthermore, fighting for the maintainment of freedom if a philosophically distinct concept from the idea that we owe are freedom to our soldiers. We owe our freedom to god. Finally, if freedom is so fragile that blood must be spilled in order to maintain it, then you are arguing that if all democracies were to be replaced by brutal fascist dictators overnight, then freedom will die and never be heard from again. If you seriously think that then you need to rethink your principles.

perhaps you should go live in a country run by fascists and then report back :), oh wait you probably wouldn't have the freedom to blog about the fact that their government sucks under their rule :-/ bummer...

and the whole 'we owe our freedom to god' -- why bring someone(thing) into this that may or may not exist? Isn't faith in god a bit less tangible than faith in democracy?

So you've failed US History Until 1877, US Government, and now more advanced courses like Philosophy for not realizing what the Philosopher's God is. LOL!

i've studied philosophy and theology and many history courses --- Just because I didn't automatically assume you were a student of philosophy does not mean i've FAILED courses...

I don't really have to have an intellectual penis-measuring contest, i'm above that... sounds like you might be a bit insecure and use your intellect to feel more important and significant. It's ok, everyone has their angle I guess.
