Give Me Liberty

Been thinking about the differences between the political parties and their messaging.  In my study of the beginnings of the Republican Party, one word stood out LIBERTY.  Not a new word in the battle for freedom, but an interesting one.

Probably the most famous quote featuring liberty is Patrick Henry's.

Generally speaking, Liberty is considered a personal goal, gift or right, 
freedom seems to be more of a collective term.

Here's a few more quotes concerning Liberty.

The candle on the cake of Liberty comes from the Declaration of Independence,
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
