"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds" ~ Samuel Adams

Instructions to Conservatives!


"There are people who really believe in their talent to govern simply because they are governing." ~ Napoleon Bonaparte

Fits our current Administration perfectly, doesn't it?


"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 - )

COMMENTARY

QUESTION:  What can the electorate do to send an unmistakeable message to the politicians that corruption and malfeasance in government is unacceptable, and the fact that they have been involved in it, contributing to it, or have been silent about it is also unacceptable?

The strongest message the electorate can send is to to throw them ALL out of office.  Don't re-elect anybody.  Yes, that would mean throwing out a few good Congressmen along with the trash.  BUT, in a situation like the one we have today the message that we, the electorate, are the masters, is much, much more important to convey to the political community than is the retention of a few good Congressmen.!  THEY MUST GO!  THEY MUST ALL GO!!!

This should be nothing more than a joke.  Unfortunately, it isn't.  And now, for all to see, is a suspicion confirmed.  The Nobel Peace Prize is no longer about peace.  It is about the worldwide lberal progressive agenda:  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/10/09/president-barack-obama-wins-nobel-peace-prize/
===========================================
Obama got a peace prize. He is now among the ranks of:
--- Global Scale Scam Artist, Al Gore
--- Global Scale Jew Hater, Jimmy Carter
--- Global Scale Jihadii Terrorist, Yasser Arafat
--- Global Scale Embezzler, Kofi Annan
.......... fits right in.

General McChrystal publicly criticized the Obama Administration's actions in Afghanistan.  That violated the military protocol that officers do not speak out publicly against the Commander-in-Chief.  On the other hand what McChrystal said was 100% on target:

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.
