“The madness of liberalism is that it always shifts the blame away from the perpetrators [of evil] to America.  We are the only nation that has this developed sense of self-hatred, an irrational self-loathing that borders on the mentally insane.”  ~ Ellis Washington, DePauw University (BM, 1983); University of Michigan (MM, 1986); John Marshall Law School (JD, 1994). Editor, University of Michigan Law Review (1989). Law clerk for the Rutherford Institute (1991). Professor of Political Science, Savannah State University, Law and political commentator


"By gnawing through a dike, even a rat may drown a nation."  - Edmond Burke

"The free man will ask neither what his country can do for him nor what he can do for his country." – Milton Friedman

The people must also be self-assertive. They must have the spirit of the old Revolutionary War flag: "Don't tread on me!" They must be vigilant against those, at home or abroad, in or out of government, who might wish to trample on their rights. They must be courageous and manly, with a sense of honor, so that in hard times they will stand up and fight, and not slink away slavishly so as to avoid trouble and danger.

Thomas G. West and Douglas A. Jeffrey, The Rise & Decline of Constitutional Government in America

The most important moral of all is that excellence is where you find it. I would extend this generalization to cover not just higher education but all education from vocational high school to graduate school. We must learn to honor excellence, indeed to demand it in every socially accepted human activity, however humble that activity, and to scorn shoddiness, however exalted the activity. An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because philosophy is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water. --- John William Gardner (1912 - )

The Democrats are saying their healthcare plan doesn't discount the interests of young people.  Oh?  The Democrats have such a nice history of concern for children don't they?  Let's have a look back at a Democrat Administration who, solely for political purposes, took an 11 year old boy named Elian Gonzalez from freedom and relatives in Florida and sent him back to live under a communist regime in Cuba.  The liberals sent in an armed force to seize Elian from his relatives because his uncles and aunts and cousins had been refusing to give him up.  They found Elian and an uncle hiding from them in a closet.  Note the expression on Elian's face.  Says everything about what Elian thought of the idea, doesn't it?:  http://www.nocaptionneeded.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/elian2.gif

COMMENT - If the Constitution can be said to be "a living breathing document" and can be interpreted to say anything we want it to say then it is useless and valueless as a foundation document.  Only if it is immutable and unchanging (except by the specified method) is it a rock solid foundation for our nation.

Seems like the Obama Administration doesn't agree with Lincoln.
Rather, they seem to have adopted the philosophy of:

OF THE GOVERNMENT
BY THE GOVERNMENT
FOR THE GOVERNMENT

RIGHT?



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.
