What a difference 235 years makes:
On 23 March 1775, Patrick Henry said, "Give Me Liberty, or give me death!"
On 23 March 2010, Barack Obama said, in effect, fuck liberty; here's a new government handout.
UPDATE: A friend who visited Cuba back in the Clinton years remembered a big sign in Havana what said "¡Socialismo o Muerte!" ("Socialism or Death!") Underneath it someone had scrawled in Spanish, "What's the difference?"
UPDATE: Rewritten because it better reflected by sentiments.
