Good Patrick Henry

A friend of mine introduced me to the Mike Church show. Church is a conservative republican with a radio show on Sirrus and XM radio. He produces excellent parody and original pieces of work set to contemporary music. Below is a video he create called Good Patrick Henry.

The video is based on the speech Henry gave in 1775 at Saint John’s Church in Richmond Virginia.

“You are not to inquire how your trade may be increased. Nor how you will become a great and powerful people. But how your liberties can be secured. For liberty ought to be the direct end of your government. Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.” -Patrick Henry

Patrick Henry was a staunch advocate of the American Revolution and considered at the time a radical.  He was the first governor of Virginia and a leader of the anti-federalists.  The anti-federalists were opposed to replacing the Articles of Confederation with the Constitution.

The video is about 3 minutes long.  I found it to be fabulous.  I hope you enjoy it as well and I hope you check out the Mike Church show.

Mike Church can be heard from 9:00 am to noon on Sirrius Satellite Radio channel 144.  A replay of the show can be heard on XM Channel 166 from midnight to 3:00 am.  Click here to check out his website.

God help us!
