SEPTEMBER 11, 2008


"A European, when he first arrives, seems limited in his intentions as well as in his views; but he very suddenly alters his scale; 200 miles formerly appeared a very great distance, it is now but a trifle. There the plenitude of society confines many useful ideas, and often extinguishes the most laudable schemes which here ripen into maturity.  He no sooner breathes our air than he forms new schemes, and embarks on designs be never would have thought of in his own country.  Thus do Europeans become Americans." -- Michel Guillaume Jean de Crevecoeur (1735-1813), Letters From An American Farmer, 1782

(This is still so very, very true. The liberals keep saying we should follow Europe's lead, BUT, a person's status in Europe is still based very much on heritage, while here it is largely based on merit and achievement.  I say "Nay!," not here!

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.
