He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from opposition; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach himself. ~Thomas Paine
I think that this quote is right on the money. Looking away as transgressions against the American Ideal are committed means your giving away your freedom. Freedom for all, not just the people you like or those that look like you.
Let freedom ring, it's independence day. Happy 4th of July!
