A House divided against itself will soon fall Don't let them divide us with Hate. United we stand, divided we fall. A small group of power seekers can only rule by dividing us into factions, stay united, they are our public servants. You must know BOTH sides of the story to combat half-truths. The other half of half-truths are lies by omission. It is up to you to dig up the omitted part of the story. The price of Liberty is eternal vigilance.
