Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.

- Thomas Jefferson


One of the factors that has made America great was economic opportunity. Economic opportunity is derived from freedom, which in turn makes society and its citizens as a whole prosperous. This opportunity should be cherished and guarded at all, but you must understand that you cannot have great opportunity presented by freedom when you strive to achieve equality in outcome.

You cannot have success without failure, and failure requires the freedom to take risks.
