"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 - )

A THOUGHT IN PASSING:

Does your religion command or require you to oppose corruption and evil?  Does it command you to stand up and be counted.... to make your voice heard in opposition.....  to take action(s) to stop such things?  And the real question is..... have you?

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) says that if you disagree with anything the Obama Administration is attempting to do then YOU should be investigated:

The Democrats should never, ever, accuse anyone of racism.  Here's why:  http://hiphoprepublican.com/2006/08/top-racist-democrat-quotes_30.html

Logic in Congress?  Hardly!  Insanity is closer to the truth. 
Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) has submitted a bill that would require insurance companies to insure applicants even AFTER they had an illness.  That is exactly like requiring automobile insurance companies to issue collision coverage AFTER an accident has occured:  http://online.wsj.com/article/SB125310546537515699.html?mod=rss_Today%27s_Most_Popular

Well, maybe it's a start:  http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0909/27214.html

It will cost per American household of $1,761 a year.  That is the equivalent of raising personal income taxes by 15% (for the producers who actually pay income taxes).   What will???:  http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/09/15/taking_liberties/entry5314040.shtml

So far the Obama Administration has spent $410 billion on the budget, and $767 billion on the stimulus programs.  There are 3.2 persons in the average american family.  That means the Obama Administration has commited every American family to $151,680,000 in debt.  HAVE A NICE DAY!

The Administration says the stimulus program is working.  The data says otherwise:  http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204731804574385233867030644.html

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.
