Real Liberty

Liberty Bell

Freedom to roam wherever you choose,
Access to places of perfect Solitude.

No government to dictate Values you hold.
No clergy to tell you what God to behold.

No Book of Rules compelling surrender.
No one but you to set your agenda.

William's Whimsical Words:

Live free or die.
