Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

There is One Simple Word That Would Solve All of Our Issues...

You ready for it??: RESPONSIBILTY

Whether we are talking about the decline of our moral culture, healthcare, taxes, National Security, education, business bailouts, or anything else--stand up and take personal responsibilty for your own life and stop expecting others to bail you out and supply things to you at their expense.

If you want to TRULY live in freedom and liberty, then start acting like it! If you want a nanny state, move to Cuba, Venezuela, or most anywhere else in the world--just not here!

What a novel idea?? I fear it is one that is lost on many Americans now who have been raised to believe that big-brotha gov'nment will take care of them with that magical money they get from "taxin' them rich people". Get over yourself, please!!!
