Happy Fourth of July

Here is reminder from Captain America on what we stand for.

I wasn't the biggest Cap fan, but I love this panel.  Especially since he is giving this advice to a doubting Peter Parker.  That's your Paladin class right there.

Happy Fourth everyone.

Most people don’t understand the extreme COURAGE of the founding fathers … Treason in the 18th century was not life imprisonment – the founders literally pledged their “lives, fortunes and sacred honor.”
. . .
Had the revolution failed the signers of the declaration would be guilty of treason and have had all their property and all their family’s property seized.

The founder’s parents, wives and children would be homeless and without protection by the law. Their families’ would probably be forced into indentured servitude to atone for the cost of military operations.
.. ..
The signers would be tortured in a grisly manner that would make waterboarding appear pleasant. Their bodies would then be desecrated and displayed as a warning to those who dare to incur a king’s wrath.

Whatever happens to the current NSA leaker, I am confident that he will not be disemboweled, his father and mother will not be destitute, and his girlfriend and sister(s) will not be gang- raped by soldiers.

I like that panel. Reminds me of so many other classic Cap panels where he says something to remind me just why I love him so indescribably much. Sometimes while fighting a guy. Whatever "America" really means to you or meant to me, Captain America represented a high ideal that I especially appreciate in the face of all the dark hero stuff these days. Not so sure what he's been up to lately though
