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

Obama Kicks in the teeth of another piece of liberty!

Obama’s proposed bailout of the schools is plain and simple another pay back and buy off of the teachers’ unions that have been 100% behind the Marxist King Barry Hussein Obama. Like the billions of dollars spent on Stimulus/Porkulus bill, this money is simply a bribe and a band-aid that only grows government and in debts us more. What will happen when that money runs out?? More bailouts?? Where does it end? (well we all know the answer to that–bankruptcy, massive taxes, and learning Chinese). This is a failure of the system and only shows the inefficiency and corruption of the Feds to manage everything from Washington. Bailouts are equivalent to giving a drug addict his fix ‘just this one last time’ in hopes he/she will get clean after that. Of course they don’t, they only get even further in and require an even higher dose next time. Rather than cutting them off and/or reforming them we only make it worse.The best start would be do dismantle the Dept of Education (and any other agency that begins with ‘Dept of…’) and return the responsibility to where it belongs–the states and municipalities and of course the parents!State soverignty is at the heart of all federal government failure.
