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

Uh-Oh! Maybe Scott Brown Will be the RINO Many of Us Feared!

As I mentioned in my posting after Scott Brown won in the special election to replace Ted Kennedy , I would wait to see if Brown was hype or a true Conservative as many Republicans were hailing him as.

Unfortunately, this may be an early sign that Brown is no more than another liberal, northeast RINO. Brown, along with the always-reliable fellow RINO’s Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine, sided with all Democrats to advance another so-called “jobs” bil in a move, according to Brown, to advance bipartisanship. Excuse me Senator, but what does voting “yes” on another big government expansion of our debt, increase in government power, and ultimately no positive impact on jobs have ANYTHING to do with bipartisanship??? Answer: It doesn’t and you have already proven early on that you may well be a reliable stooge for the liberals that will convince you that supporting big-government programs cloaked in populism is the way to true enlightenment and love by the main stream media. But unfortunately, the only thing this will do is to doom your brief Senate career and throw your seat back to Democrats next time around as the Tea Partiers that helped get you elected will stay home next time.

I hope and pray that you don't disappoint us further Senator Brown, but you are a northeatern Republican and this vote shows what many Conservatives have feared, so I won't hold my breath. Bipartisanship is not a badge of honor, Senator, it is simply a way for the offending party to gain political cover and when it fails they can suck you into blame because you went along with it. Don't get sucked in! Be the party of NO and HELL NO when it comes to violating the strict limits placed on you by the Constitution.
