Upper Left Coast

Thoughts on politics, faith, sports and other random topics from a red state sympathizer in indigo-blue Portland, Oregon.

Every man dies. Not every man really lives.

That's one of Steve Duin's Top 10 Lines from the movie Braveheart. I particularly liked No. 8, spoken by William Wallace:
You're so concerned with squabbling for the scraps from Longshanks' table that you've missed your God-given right to something better. There's a difference between us: You think the people of this country exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide these people with freedom. And I go to make sure that they have it.
I also laughed at No. 4 just because it's not often you see the F-word (be it ever so misspelled to emulate the Scottish dialect) in a family newspaper's website.
