"The distinction between a government with limited and unlimited powers is abolished if those limits do not confine the persons on whom they are imposed, and if acts prohibited and acts allowed are of equal obligation. It is a proposition too plain to be contested, that the constitution controls any legislative act repugnant to it; or, that the legislature may alter the constitution by an ordinary act." -- John Marshall (1755-1835) -- Marbury vs Madison, 1803

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin.  But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." -- Theodore Roosevelt 1907

WORTH READING AGAIN.  Here's the document that has begun to make to rounds in the states and has already been adopted by Arizona, New Hampshire, Washington, and Missouri.  Isn't it time we all forward this link to our friends in other states so they can urge its adoption by their state:  http://www.nhliberty.org/bills/view?bill=HCR6&year=2009

Politicians never learn.  The stimulus programs tried during the Great Depression didn't work then either, and only worsened the situation:  http://www.ff.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=458&Itemid=1

A THOUGHT IN PASSING:  Why should politicians be allowed to raise their own salaries?  Why not automatically set their salaries at a level equal to that of the average citizen.  If they want higher wages let them do what is necessary to improve the economic well being of all Americans.

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.
