The congressman explained that “one-third of the population sometimes just never understands the value of freedom,” reminding Larson that “during the American Revolution, one-third of the population were ardent Tories.” He continued in warning that the people enchanted by the “siren song of benign, all-powerful government” could jeopardize the country’s future.
