“On the other hand, the duty imposed upon him to take care, that the laws be faithfully executed, follows out the strong injunctions of his oath of office, that he will "preserve, protect, and defend the constitution." The great object of the executive department is to accomplish this purpose; and without it, be the form of government whatever it may, it will be utterly worthless for offence, or defence; for the redress of grievances, or the protection of rights; for the happiness, or good order, or safety of the people." ~ Joseph Story (1779-1845), Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833
"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 - )
President Obama's Community Organizer Background Is Showing
G T Baker
Aug 15, 2009
The fact that President Obama has a background as a community organizer does not in itself tell us much. In fact, people who get together others to form a Neighborhood Watch are also community organizers. However, in Obama's case, his experience carries with it a special flavor or odor of the style of community organizing done in Chicago. That's where payoffs and special favors are not rare events they are close to being the normal routine.
That's exactly what we have seen at work in the stimulus program payoff to banks, investment firms, and other businesses.
The Administration has engaged in the arbitrary shutting down of certain auto dealerships, the large majority of which contributed to the McCain Presidential campaign, while closing almost none of those who contributed to the Obama campaign (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/blogs/beltway-confidential/Furor-grows-over-partisan-car-dealer-closings-46261447.html). "Play ball with us or there will be hell to pay." That's Chicago style politics and it is corruption pure and simple. Now we are beginning to see that same philosophy turned toward individual Americans who stand up to voice their opinions in opposition to the Administration's policies and plans. Worse still is citizens being beaten up for voicing their opposition opinions at townhall meetings.
It is understandable that not many Democrat politicians are saying anything about all this, BUT, unfortunately the Republicans also haven't been standing up in opposition.
Perhaps it is time to decide that in the 2010 and 2012 elections to not re-elect anyone..... to send them all home.

Government is almost never the best answer, and it is often the worst answer. Milton Friedman on freedom::
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.
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
