Jay at Stop the ACLU points us to an important post by Michelle Malkin exposing the radical Left's hijacking of Benjamin Franklin's famous, and always mangled, quote:
Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
In this photo, you see one of the most popular variations of Ben's words.
The missing word, "essential" is, well, essential to understanding Franklin's quote.
