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

Chris Christie 2012? : Might Want to Keep Looking!

Don't get me wrong, I love what Chris Christie is doing to the budget and the sledgehammer he is taking to the public unions in New Jersey. Other governors could learn something about fiscal fitness in their own states! But I think I would prefer if Christie stays in New Jersey and doesn't attempt to make a national splash.

Why? My eyebrow was first raised when Christie supported the ultimate leftist RINO, Mike Castle in the Delaware Senate race over Christine O'Donnell. Then consider these potentially worrisome facts:

1. Christie, as a REPUBLICAN governor, has refused to participate in the class action multi state suit against Obamacare or to go it alone like Virginia.
2. Christie has expressed support for illegal immigration and lax immigration enforcement.
3. Christie is no fan of the Second Amendment, or at least would not go out of his way to support it.
4. Christie has supported Cap and Trade schemes which will kill our economy and skyrocket energy prices.
5. Christie may have some ties in radical Islam
6. Christie was the ONLY high profile Republican to dine with and praise the Communist dictator and butcher last evening--Chinese President Hu JinTao! Why?? When even liberals like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi wouldn't even give this animal a stage! Disturbing...

Again, I praise Christie for his fiscal axe in New Jersey, but I hope he keeps his promise and stays in New Jersey. Unless all these issues can be debunked, this is one Republican we don't need on the national scene in 2012!
