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

Good Riddance to the Last Kennedy

Happy Days are here again! Patrick Kennedy, D-RI has announced that he is not seeking reelction to his Congressional seat in Rhode Island. With this announcement, it will end an over 60 year old prescence ofKennedy's in public office--thankfully. Camelot is over--well actually it's been over since the death of the only Kennedy worthy of public office, that being JFK.

Patrick will step down from his seat in the midst of a country turning on liberal Democrat policies such as his and King Barry's. He says he is doing it because his life is "going in a new direction." Yeah right. The fact is most of the Kennedy's legacy has been spent building dependent class citizens and spending other people's money--of course not their own since they have inherited wealth that isn't subject to the confiscatory confiscations of wealth that Kennedy's since JFK have advocated and voted for in or out of office.

In his farewell speech seen here, Kennedy talks about his fight for "social justice" while he and others in his family served in public office. Don't you just love how liberals want to use the power of elected office to mandate and force their views of "social justice" on the rest of us?? Funny, I thought our Founder's envisioned that public office be used to strictly uphold the Constitution and represent the interest of their constituents in their distrcts ONLY. Not for use of social experimentation treating everyone like lab rats to be tinkered and toyed with (and believe me there is plenty of blame to go around on both sides of the aisle in this respect!)

Kennedy simply sees the writing on the wall that even in a blue state like Rhode Island, people are growing scared and tired of failed liberalism and is simply following the cowardice path of many Dems that know the writing is on the wall for them and their views.

I believe the last straw for him was seeing his father Ted Kennedy's seat fall to Republican Scott Brown last month in Massachusetts. Kennedy lashed out last week saying it was a joke when asked about the significance of the election.

Well Pat, I am sorry to have to tell you, but the only joke here is you and your failed ideology. Good riddance and don't let the door hit you on the way out...


  1. No family in American history - not the Roosevelt, not the Adams, and certainly not the Bush families - have paid a higher price in the service of the people than the Kennedys. And to be perfectly honest with you, I'm sick and tired of listening to them get kicked around by the clueless right wing.

    It was announced yesterday that Ben Quayle, son of the former vice-president, will be running for congress. We here, at this glorious moment in the history of our great nation, are proud and privileged to bear witness to the birth of the Quayle family political dynasty.

    I need a drink.

  2. Cry me a river frankly. While some of their "tradegies" are sad, some were brought on by thier own actions. For instance,how do you think the Kopeckni family has felt all these years since good 'ol Teddy left Mary to die in a sunken car? Their tradegies do not in any way excuse them from the damage their policies and ideologies have caused to this country.

    And of course "clueless" liberals cannot address the logic of my main arguement, that being that the Kennedy (and all libs) social justice experimentations and wealth robbing of us and future generations has created years and generations of dependence and mediocrity and squashes the human spirit to achieve and be the best. They are the antithesis of freedom and liberty.
