"Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it." -John Adams

Welcome to Patriot's Lament. We strive here to educate ourselves on Liberty. We will not worry ourselves so much with the daily antics of American politics, and drown ourselves in the murky waters of the political right or left.
Instead, we will look to the Intellectuals and Champions of Liberty, and draw on their wisdom of what it is to be a truly free people. We will learn from where our Providential Liberties are derived, and put the proper perspective of a Free Individual and the State.
Please join us!

Earl Scruggs

Bluegrass legend Earl Scruggs, the father of the 3-finger picking style on the banjo, died yesterday. He will be greatly missed. I love bluegrass, and have always been in awe of Earl Scruggs. He was the main influence in me getting my own banjo.
He was one of those guys that was just a good man, from what I know of him.  I know he was very anti-war.

RIP Earl, God bless you for what you gave us!
