"The moment the idea is admitted into society, that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If "Thou shalt not covet," and "Thou shalt not steal," were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society, before it can be civilized or made free." -- John Adams (1735-1826), A Defense of the American Constitution, 1787

(speaks rather eloquently against the concept of property taxes doesn't it?)

In 2006 Medicare paid $2.8 billion in improper and fake claims.  Democrat Pete Stark says it was the fault of the Bush administration.  Excuse me, but the establishment of Medicare was a Democrat project and from the beginning it carried warnings of being a cash cow for fraud because it had almost no fiscal safeguards:  http://online.wsj.com/article/SB121944730222565137.html?mod=rss_opinion_main

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.

Contact your elected officials (enter your zip code in the upper right corner):  http://www.congress.org/congressorg/home/
