"The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending against all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks."
--Samuel Adams, 1722-1803, United States of America
Apparently in the 21st century, this duty to defend the constitution is no longer permitted to small Latin American countries.
Even more perverse, this small democratic Latin American country, Honduras, has to defend its sovereignty and constitution against the intromission, interference, and economic sanctions by the greatest democracy of all − the United States of America.
"Today we stand firm before this flag to renew our commitment to work fighting for the values of peace and justice. We are present to reaffirm our determination to defend our sovereignty and the values and traditions we have celebrated from our ancestors and that later we will give to our children and grandchildren."
--Roberto Micheletti, Constitutional President of Honduras, September 1, 2009
