    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Benjamin Franklin

    There is also another very similar version used as the motto on the title page in a book published by Franklin.

    As far as Taylor's comments:

    Fine for him, he can give up any freedoms he wants as long as he keeps his dumb *** comments to himself. Who gives a damn what a lefty singer thinks! I sure don't.

    Start with the basics. Giving up freedoms won't save the children.

    Making "Two Lane Blacktop" didn't save his career!!! Giving up our 2A rights would jeopardize our children!

    James Taylor shouldn't even talk, he can barely sing at this point.

    If James Taylor feels so strongly about giving up constitutional rights perhaps he should go on hunger strike until we all agree...

    Reinforces my feeling that James Taylor was nothing but Carole King's tool.

    I think all the heroin and methadone along with his psychological excuse/pass not to go to Vietnam give enough pause to not listen to anything he thinks.

    James Taylor is comfy and secure in the financial cushion he enjoys as a successful entertainer. I don't begrudge him that for a moment. Wish I'd done as well with my own guitar...

    But compare his persepctive with the rest of us, doing our best to experience birth, school, work and death with some dignity, service to others, and joy along the way. There is no correlation between Taylor's rare fantasy existence and the common mainstream reality that his blithe opinions completely fail to acknowledge.
