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 Grand Wizard of the Klan and Senate-Robert Byrd

I am celebrating the death of the racist, bigot, and chief pork winner, Robert "KKK" Byrd (D-WV). Not because of his death in of itself, but because I am glad he is FINALLY out of the Senate!

If there was ever a need for term limits (besides Ted Kennedy) Robert Byrd embodies that. I don't want to hear that he carried around a Constitution and new the Senate rules well.

At the very least, we should remember he was a long term member of the KKK and even though he renounced his membership, do you really ever take those opinions out?? I have my doubts...

And while he touted being a defender of the Constitution, he has bilked nearly a billion dollars out of the pockets of Americans in other states besides West Virginia through pork projects and brought home this laundered money to his state in order to secure his power and votes. Not to mention every left wing UNCONSTITUTIONAL program and idea he supported in the last 50+ years! So Robert Byrd is NO friend of the Constitution and Federalism unless it benefited his reelection campaign.

Byrd's endless appetite for pork money is obviously not limited to him and is a disease that strikes almost every Congress person or Senator once they get there--Byrd simply had mastered it and became Exhibit A on what is wrong with Washington and how much of a money laundering outfit it has become.

Have a drink tonite and celebrate another liberal lion and liar out of the Senate!
