The Declaration of Independence

The Continental Congress approves the Declaration of Independence, brilliant scene from John Adams mini-series. It is easy to forget these days that the signers of The Declaration were literally putting their lives and fortunes on the line with this vote.

Their example stands in stark contrast to today's timid political "leaders" who are unwilling to put their necks on the line for much of anything, even tackling the #1 threat to the country's well-being: deficit spending.
