Favorite Movie Quote

"You want free speech? Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who's standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours." You want to claim this land as the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country cannot just be a flag. The symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Now show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms. "

- Movie speech from the American President - President Shepherd's Press Conference on Bob Rumson and the Crime Bill.


  • Don't forget the first part...
    America isn't easy. America is advanced citizenship. You've gotta want it bad, 'cause it's gonna put up a fight.

  • How about MacInerney's quote, "Oh you only fight the fights you can win? You fight the fights that need fighting!"
