"If in the opinion of the People, the distribution or modification of the Constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed." -- George Washington (1732-1799), Farewell Address, March 29, 1792

Are you unhappy with the way many things are going in the USA?  If you are then let your elected representatives hear from you.  Our nation is a "representative republic."  In other words a nation where our legislators are supposed to represent your wishes, but, if you don't let them hear from you how are they supposed to know what things concern you?  Generally liberals are more group oriented than are conservatives, and tend to be more activist in nature.  That's why things in our country have been becoming more and more liberal in nature, even though conservatives outnumber the liberals.  Remember, our nation only works as our founders designed it to work if the citizens participate in its operation.

McCain and Obama both have children's books.  McCain's was written by his oldest daughter.  Obama's by long time Democrat Party workers Grimes and Collier.  A quote from Obama's book says, ""Even God himself talks to Barry while he's in church on Sunday."  I don't know about you but that phrasing makes me feel very uneasy.
