"For what is Evil but Good-tortured by its own hunger and thirst?"
- Khalil Gibran
Just so you know, if you're going to try to defend Sarah's version of this historical event, here are the words that have to be somehow shown to be accurate:
So, we have to picture Paul Revere riding through town while ringing bells and firing warning shots, intent on warning the British that they weren't going to take the rebels' guns away. He wasn't shouting "the Redcoats are coming,' or "The Regulars are coming", but "We're going to be free, secure, and armed!"He who warned the, the British that they weren't gonna be taking away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells and, um, by making sure that as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that, uh, we were gonna be secure and we were gonna be free, and we were gonna be armed,"
OK, so post that in "Conservapedia."
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
I have a thick volume called "The American Revolution". The first paper in it is written by Paul Revere. It is his memorandum on the events of April 18th, 1775. He rode first to Lexington to warn Hancock and Adams that the Brits (British Light Troops and Grenadiers) were coming to arrest them or to to to Concord to destroy the Colony Stores (that would be the powder and shot). When he was captured on the road to Concord, by the Brits, he warned them, "that I had alarmed the country all the way up, that their boats were catch'd aground, and I should have 500 men there soon..."
So Palin was right. Revere warned the British. His memo mentions gunfire and the Brits asking him what it meant. P. Revere wrote,"I told him to alarm the country."

“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
