Patrick Henry or Gideon?

Patrick Henry's famous quote:

"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"

Gideon's famous quote:

"For it is better that we should be in bondage than that we should lose our lives; therefore, let us put a stop to the shedding of so much blood."

Where do you come down?

Patrick Henry.

However, we already are in terrible bondage. $17 trillion in debt and growing.

So you're saying you'd rather be dead than live in a country with high debt? I don't like the debt either, but . . .
