SEPTEMBER 29, 2008


"The basis of our political system is the right of the people to make and alter their constitutions of government. But the constitution which at any time exists, until changed by the explicit and authentic act of the whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon all." --  George Washington, Farewell Address, September 17, 1796

Quote:   I am a liberal.  I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means -- except by getting off his back.

Author:   LEO TOLSTOY, 1828-1910, Russian Novelist, Philosopher

Quote:   The essence of the Liberal outlook lies not in what opinions are held, but in how they are held: instead of being held dogmatically, they are held tentatively, and with a consciousness that new evidence may at any moment lead to their abandonment.

Author:   BERTRAND RUSSELL, 1872-1970, British Philosopher, Mathematician, Essayist

The Democrats drive to register homeless people because they have a "right to vote."  There's only one problem with that.  NO ONE HAS A RIGHT TO VOTE IN NATIONAL ELECTIONS!  No, I am not kidding.  It isn't in the Constitution and it isn't in the Bill of Rights:  http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/politics/2008/09/20/natpkg.homeless.voters.cnn

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/
