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

Brief Update on Kagan Nomination

The RINOs are lining up to hand this wholly unqualified leftist and Obama puppet Elena Kagan to a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court by pledging to not filibuster her nomination.

Gutless, spineless Senators like Jon Kyl (R-AZ) are a perfect example. Kyl has said he will not filibuster her. He probably will vote against her but that will not make a difference because a Democrat controlled Senate all but guarantees her victory and only gives Kyl political cover. I have been untrusting of Jon Kyl for a long time. He is a John McCain/Susan Collins/Olympia Snowe type insider more concerned about his power and Washington boys club than he is about the future of our country.

I wonder if people like Kyl remember what the late (yeah!) Ted Kennedy did to a more than qualified strong Conservative Judge Robert Bork ?? Ahh, only if we had Republicans who were as strong in their convictions as Ted Kennedy was!
