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

Ben Nelson, (D-NB). Just the Latest American Sellout

In the tradition of his colleague, Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Senator Ben Nelson has sold his country, his principles (if he had any to begin with--he is a liberal after all!) , and all the future generations of Americans that would have to pay for the monstrous government takeover of health care that the bill he is supporting would ultimately create. How did he come to support it??

Well first of all, he was going to support it all along. The showmanship of resisting it as the "rebel" from Nebraska, the so-called "moderate" Democrat is all just that--showmanship and theatre. Nelson supposedly was holding out for a change in the bill to "guarantee" that the bill would allow states to make their own rules regarding paying for abortions or not under this plan. So his ass buddy Harry Reid inserted this provision to gain his support as the all powerful 60th vote to shut off a Republican filibuster and he says he will vote for it now. He of course is saying that if the conference bill that the House and Senate must work out after passage in the Senate again contains abortion funding mandated by the Feds, that he "reserves the right" to vote against the final bill.

And to add the cherry on the sundae, the true reason Nelson is supporting the bill from Fox "But Nelson also won several other concessions, most notably a commitment from the federal government to fully fund his state's expanded Medicaid population. All states get full federal assistance for the first three years of the bill -- but Nebraska would be the only state getting full assistance afterward. One Democratic official put the cost to the federal government at $45 million over a decade. "
What an absolute joke and disgrace this guy is!!

Does anyone have any confidence that he would vote against it?? How 'bout NO!! Of course he will because he is just another Marxist/Socialist out to secure the power and control for himself and the rest of the Marxists in Washington over you and I. That includes the so-called independent Joe Lieberman from my state of Connecticut who voted for this mess after the "public option" was taken off the table. Like the abortion language, do you have doubt that the public option will be back sometime down the road?? Put money on it!

And don't think for a minute that the abortion mandate won't be put back in down the road after the final bill is passed by future legislation. The radical baby killing left wouldn't ever tolerate it any other way...And the abortion restrictions he did get concessions on are weak at best and do very little to support a true pro-life position. If you want to tell Nelson what you think about his sell out position, here is his contact form posted on his Senate website:

Again, Nelson is a phony and could care less about integrity and morals. He is simply another pro-government leftist hell bent on converting the greatest nation in the world into just another Socialist, European style pathetic, weak country made frozen and impotent by its own crushing regulations and debt that their policies have created. God help us all...
