Freedoms just another word ...

for having nothin' left to lose.
TL writes a stirring post Let Us Begin.
As he calls for a Liberty Summit, TL enumerates the rationale

... great numbers of us who will gladly make a stance at every opportunity if it did not mean giving up everything we have, tossing our families into the maelstrom ...
(emphasis mine)

That's the crux of the biscuit though, ain't it?
That's what happens.
Ya got nothing left to lose.

TL ends with a nod to Valley Forge. Which sent me surfin'.

Naked and starving as they are
We cannot enough admire
The incomparable Patience and Fidelity
of the Soldiery
