Patrick Henry didn’t say “Give me Democracy or give me death” in that Virginia church in 1775. In 1776 Thomas Jefferson did not write that “All men are created equal and are endowed with certain inalienable rights, among these the Pursuit of Life, Democracy and Happiness.”

And in 1841 Verdi did not write his Hebrew’s Slave Chorus to praise “Democracy”.

He wrote these lyrics instead, as sung by Nana Mouskouri.

These lyrics are as poignant as you will find to define this 2022 and 2024 election

(If you don’t know Nana Mouskouri, she is Greek, 87 now, and sings in several languages, and I first heard her over 50 years ago. The English lyrics here are as timely, and timeless as they are poignant.

A keeper.

  1. Our Lord not only gave us life and salvation but liberty (life) . We lose our liberty when men (even those in a so called democracy ) start forgetting that our basic liberties are endowed to mankind by God and not men nor government . When humanists claim the authority to confer liberty and , thereby , supplant or usurp God ‘s divine authority they blaspheme our Heavenly Father . We need to take notice that this is a sin that many liberal members of humanity now make commit more and more frequently .
