"IF THIS BE SEDITION, MAKE THE MOST OF IT!" (with apologies to Patrick Henry)

In this issue I bring to you a number of quotations about communism.  Purpose?  To get you to see that there isn't much difference between Communism and our current Administration
 ***********************************************************************
“Communism teaches and seeks two objectives: unrelenting class warfare and the complete eradication of private ownership” ~ Pope Pius XI
 
“Communism is the opiate of the intellectuals with no cure except as a guillotine might be called a cure for dandruff.”
~ Clare Boothe Luce
 
“Communism is not love. Communism is a hammer which we use to crush the enemy.”
~ Mao Tse-Tung
 
“Communism means barbarism”
~ James Russell Lowell
 
“That (separation of church and state) was never in the Constitution, however much the liberals laugh at me for saying it, they know good and well it was never in the Constitution! Such language has only appeared in the constitution of the communist Soviet Union”
~ Pat Robertson
 
“All that Communism needs to make it successful is someone to feed and clothe it”
~ The Columbia Record
 
“We Communists are men on leave”
~ Eugen Levine
 
Communists have become bureaucrats. If anything will destroy us, it is this.
~ Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin


"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 - )

Our Founding Fathers were greatly influenced by a rather lengthly treatise on the subject of freedom, The Spirit of Laws, by Charles Louis de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu, published in 1748.  You can read it for yourself at: http://oll.libertyfund.org/index.php?option=com_staticxt&staticfile=show.php%3Ftitle=837&Itemid=27

How much do you and every member of your family owe on the national debt?

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.
