“Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion…reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” -- George Washington, Farewell Address, Sept 17, 1796

(Kinda hard to argue with that, isn't it?.)

"When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion.  When you see that in order to produce you need permission from men who produce nothing.  When you see money flowing to those who deal not in goods but in favors.  When you see men get richer by graft and pull more than work, and your laws don't protect you against them but protect them against you.  And when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice you may know that your society is doomed."  -  John Galt

COMMENT:  Congress moving to reclaim the AIG bonuses is outright unconstitutional.  The Constitution of the United States, Article I, Section 9, paragraph 3, provides that: "No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law will be passed."  A Bill of Attainder is "a legislative act that singles out an individual or group for punishment without a trial."

The Administration's proposal to make wounded soldiers pay for their own health care, recuperation, and physical therapy has died.  The important thing, however, is to never forget what kind of people it takes to even dream up such an idea.  It speaks volumes to what those currently in power think about our troops:  http://www.cfif.org/htdocs/freedomline/current/in_our_opinion/Veterans-Beat-the-Crap-Out-of-Shameless-Commander-in-Chief-Rightly-So.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.
