If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude
greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace.
We seek not your consul, nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hand that
feeds you.  May your chains set lightly upon you;  and may posterity forget
ye were our countrymen. -- Samuel Adams (American Patriot)
