SEPTEMBER 17, 2008


"The great object of my fear is the Federal Judiciary. That body, like gravity, ever acting with noiseless foot and unalarming advance, gaining ground step by step and holding what it gains, is engulfing insidiously the special governments into the jaws of that which feeds them." -- Thomas Jefferson (1779-1845), Address Before the Suffolk Bar, September 4, 1821

A MUST READ - And here's the proof of my statement immediately above.  The Community Redevelopment Act was enacted by the Carter Administration and expanded by the Clinton Administration and it is the singular cause of the sub-prime mortgage crises and the follow-on problems in the financial business.  Note that this review and warning of what was going to happen was totally accurate AND it was written 8 years agohttp://www.city-journal.org/html/10_1_the_trillion_dollar.html

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.
