"IF THIS BE SEDITION, MAKE THE MOST OF IT!" (with apologies to Patrick Henry)
========================================================================
Because the liberal Democrats so often cannot find logical arguements to conservative concerns they routinely revert to making false assertions about Conservatives and the TEA Partys.  That's slander pure and simple.  Well, let's just see a few comments about slander from throughout history.........

"If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking." ~ George S. Patton

"When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser." ~ Socrates

"Information becomes a distraction, a diversion." ~ President Barack Obama

“Our ignorance of history causes us to slander our own times.” ~ Gustave Flaubert      
  
“He who knows how to flatter also knows how to slander.”
~ Napoleon Bonaparte 
  
“Truth is generally the best vindication against slander” ~ Abraham Lincoln      
  
“Slander is the revenge of a coward, and dissimulation his defense” ~ Proverb
 
“Slander cannot destroy an honest man - when the flood recedes the rock is there”
~ Chinese Proverb
 
“Setting too good an example is a kind of slander seldom forgiven”
~ Benjamin Franklin      
 
 “Slander slays three persons: the speaker, the spoken to, and the spoken of”
~ Hebrew Proverb
 
“If we accept and acquiesce in the face of discrimination, we accept the responsibility”
~ Proverb

“We are so presumptuous that we think we can separate our personal interest from that of humanity, and slander mankind without compromising ourselves” ~ Marquis de Vauvenargues
  
“Slander-mongers and those who listen to slander, if I had my way, would all be strung up, the talkers by the tongue, the listeners by the ears.”
~ Titus Maccius Plautus
 
“Slander is a poison which kills charity, both in the slanderer and the one who listens.”
~ St. Bernard
 
“Self-praise is half slander”
~ Proverb

AND NOW FROM 84 YEARS AGO A PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION:

The Montreal Gazette
June 10, 1926

"There are a sort of highbrow type of self-centered educated persons who form a sort of exclusive aristocracy here, there, and almost everywhere.  What their education has done is to show them how little others know.  They constitute an uppish class that sometimes mistakes itself for an upper class, and is proud to be known as highbrow, and as a highbrow is a degeneraic intellectual aristocrat who is the product of an education that should have made him a liberal. 

But it has not done so.  Rather it shows that much learning can be accompanied by bad training, and illustrates and old conclusion that the most learned are not necessarily the best learned.

Sir Robert Falconer
President
University of Toronto
========================================================================
“A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague.” ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero, 106-43 BC

Could there be any more accurate description of today's Liberal Progressive Democrats?

"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 - )

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.
