"There are certain social principles in human nature, from which we may draw the most solid conclusions with respect to the conduct of individuals and of communities. We love our families more than our neighbors; we love our neighbors more than our countrymen in general. The human affections, like solar heat, lose their intensity as they depart from the centre... On these principles, the attachment of the individual will be first and for ever secured by the State governments." -- Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804) -- Speech to the New York Constitutional Convention, 1787

(A warning that the primacy of 'states rights' must be maintained)

JUST SO YOU'LL KNOW -  How much is a trillion dollars?

A trillion dollars here, a trillion dollars there, pretty soon were talking about real money.  How much is a trillion dollars?  Here's an example.

If I were to give you 1 dollar per second you would be getting:

.... $60/minute
.... $3600/hour
.... $86,400/day
.... $31,536,000/year

.... and at that rate it would take 31,709 years to reach a trillion

Worse still is that if we add together all government spending plans, all existing federal debt, and all existing unfunded obligations, the total is about $10,000,000,000,000 (ten trillion).  That's $32,695 for every man, woman, child and baby in the USA.  Maybe each of us can pay our share by putting it on our credit cards and then move to Houston and apply to the city to pay our credit card bill so we can quality for a home mortgage (see reference below).

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.
