SEPTEMBER 4, 2008


"For one person alone to have the Government of a people in his hands, would be too great a temptation. It tends to excite and draw forth the Pride of man, to make him unsufferably haughty; it gives him too much liberty to exert his corruptions, and it encourages him to become a Tyrant and an oppressor, to dispense with laws and break the most solemn oaths."  -- John Barnard (1681-1770), The Presence of Great God in the Assembly of Political Rulers, 1746

(Therefore, 'tis wise to view all who seek high office with a suspicious eye.)

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.
