In Re: “Attacks” on Liberty Party
Abraham Darius Dillon, Senior Policy Advisor/Liberty Party
Tuesday, October 1, 2013
At first, I was reluctant to respond to what seems transferred and unwarranted "attacks" by Mr. John S. Morlu and later followed by Mr. Aloysius Toe on the Liberty Party of which I am Senior Policy Advisor, but after reading their diatribes, I have concluded that it’s about time to call these folks in their tracks, since they are bent only on drumming empty noise to win public sentiments and attention. In especially Mr. Toe’s rant, he not only misread Liberty Party’s position regarding recent calls by some of our citizens for the resignation of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf from office, he also attacked my person and embarrassingly spewed falsehood to the public. I shall now deal with these incoherent and deliberate lies.

The national emblem of our dear country “the Flag” was adopted on July 26, 1847. Though adopted on the day of independence but the Flag was never hoisted until August 24, 1847. The Liberian Flag has three distinct colours, red white and blue. The blue square represents the African Continent and the white star in the blue square in the upper left corner represents the only independent country on the Continent by then. The eleven stripes on the Flag represent the eleven signatories of the Declaration of Independence. The colours, red and white symbolize the courage and moral excellence of the signatories.
