The Four Boxes of Freedom

While driving to work one morning last week, a bright yellow pick up truck passed me. Painted on the back of his truck in elegant lettering was this phrase:

We have four boxes in which to defend our freedom:
the ballot box, the soap box, the jury box and the cartridge box

What a clever way to state our rights:
freedom to vote
freedom to speak our views
freedom to a trial of our peers or "innocent until proven guilty"
freedom to defend ourselves

It brought tears to my eyes in light of the drastic changes that have happened to our country during the last 8 months.
