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

The Obama Youth Corp Begins October 19th!

If you have young kids, you might want to keep them away from TV as much as possible next week. Why? Haven't you heard that Obama has teamed up with Hollywood Socialists to promote "volunteerism"?

I really can't explain what this all about better than what Andrew Breitbart has done so here are the links to his site. This is very important so please take the time to read this!

Putting aside the clear left wing agenda of these programs for a moment, it is easy to make the leap that what is "voluntary" now will become mandatory later. Obama's website immediately after the election spoke of mandatory servitude by all citizens as a way to "give back" and Obama boasted of having a "citizens corp" "with as much authority and as well equipped (paraphrased)" as our military!! After they realized the criticism it was drawing, they scrubbed the site and removed the references. I have no doubt that this action next week is simply a way to send up a trial balloon and see how it is received and/or to lay the ground work for mandatory service down the road.
Nice, little brainwashed, brown shirted Obama-bot thugs walking around your neighborhood serving the Messiah.

2 problems with this:
1. If it is mandatory, how can it be volunteerism?
2 And most importantly, IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL as clearly stated in Section 1 of Amendment XIII.
Then again, Obama has never been constrained by anything in that old, antiquated document that he clearly reviles and would do away with it entirely if he had the chance.
