Fairness leads to liberty;

Fearfulness leads to tyranny.

There are two types of voters:

Those who choose fairness over fearfulness

And those who choose fearfulness over fairness.

The fair citizen votes for

Freedom over fear,

Civil rights over civil wrongs,

Civil liberties over civil tyrannies.

The fearful citizen votes for

Fear over freedom,

Civil wrongs over civil rights,

Civil tyrannies over civil liberties.

The fair and courageous citizen believes

Give him liberty or

Give him death.

The fearful and cowardly citizen believes

Take away his liberty or

He might receive death.

More fair voters

Than fearful voters

When the Democratic Party

For civil libertarians

Defeats the Republican Party

For authoritarians.

More fearful voters

Than fair voters

When the Republican Party

For authoritarians

Defeats the Democratic Party

For civil libertarians.

Republicans incite people's fearfulness;

Democrats appeal to people's fairness;

Don't cower in fearfulness;

Stand up for fairness.

America was meant to be

The land of the free

And the home of the brave,

Not the land of the oppressed

And the home of the cowards,

So the fearful

Better grow a spine.

Giving away liberty

Does not buy security;

Liberty is most of security;

Without decreasing liberty,

Let's start increasing security.

The seed of liberty

Grows peace and prosperity,

So our only fear

Should be of fear.

Then the future won't be owned by fear;

The future will be owned by freedom.
