OCTOBER 8, 2008


"All governments, even the most despotic, depend, in a great degree, on opinion. In free republics, it is most peculiarly the case: In these, the will of the people makes the essential principle of the government; and the laws which control the community, receive their tone and spirit from the public wishes. It is the fortunate situation of our country, that the minds of the people are exceedingly enlightened and refined: Here then we may expect the laws to be proportionably agreeable to the standard of perfect policy; and the wisdom of public measures to consist with the most intimate conformity between the views of the representative and his constituent." -- Alexander Hamilton (1757-1804), Speech in the New York Assembly, June 17, 1788

(Another example of our founders understanding how important it is, in a republic, for citizens to routinely communicate with their representatives .)

COMMENT!  Have you ever noticed that the aim of Obama, and in fact all the Democrats, is to divide us?  In fact, despite all their grandstanding about "equality," almost everything they say and do has as its purpose to divide us.  Take Obama's current campaign promise for a tax cut for 95% of all Americans.  What about the remaining 5%?  If a tax cut would be good for 95% of us would in not be even better for all of us.  Think about it!  Whether it be on the basis of minorities, or gender, or income level, etc, everything the Democrats do involves giving favor to one group at the expense of those not in the favored group(s).  Someone please tell me where the "equality" is in that kind of philosophy.

AND IF THAT WEREN'T ENOUGH!  "The Obama tax plans would increase marginal income tax rates on high earners and raise taxes on capital gains and dividends, with the likely effect of contracting labor supply, reducing rewards for saving, and increasing incentives to avoid taxes. All but the very lowest income Americans would face higher marginal tax rates under the Obama plan than the McCain proposal." - Neal Boortz

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.
