Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." --Frederick Douglass from www.SearchQuotes.com

The other day I was driving and saw a well-known picture of an American Flag on the back of the spare-tire cover on the SUV in front of me with the words "There is only one."  This makes one think: is there only one US flag or nation or SUV such as the one sporting this nifty slogan?

The Internet can help here as well.  On a recent video of the "Big Picture" with Thom Hartmann on www.RT.com, Thom mentioned that President George Washington's horse was shot out from under him three times during the Revolutionary War.  That is tenacity.  Thom Hartmann is also tenacious.  A historian, New York Times best-selling author, radio/TV host and actor with 24 books to his name, Thom is the classic workaholic.   I interviewed with him once, briefly on his radio show when I was working in Brooklyn.  Please see www.ThomHartmann.com for more details on this prolific US historian.

With Election Day occurring this month, one may wish to review the history of the US and why the country is worth voting for, even though about half of us do not bother to vote and exercise a hard fought right.  Visit www.Biography.com and www.History.com for numerous video documentaries on a variety of famous Americans, such as the father of our country, George Washington, who married into wealth, became our first US President in 1789 and led the nation from the capitol in NYC after winning the Revolutionary War as a General.  In 1799 when Washington died, being a slave owner, he freed all of his slaves.  Even in death, President Washington was a rare humanitarian.
