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

The So-Called Tucson Memorial...

Last night in Tucson we memorialized and remembered the victims of the madman Jared Loughner. Or did we?

Don’t get me wrong, I think the comments made by the President were appropriate and civil. Although I will say the proof will be in the pudding AFTER the dust settles and Obama goes back to Washington. Because believe me, I do not for a second trust or believe anything he says about civility and “Coming together” as this is the most divisive administration in US history. Don’t forget, Eric Holder was there and we know how friendly HE is to patriotic and traditional American values! But I will give him the benefit of the doubt—for the moment.

The organizers of the meeting decided it was appropriate to make up blue T-shirts with the latest version of Hope and Change, that being “Together We Thrive”, and programs-like tickets to a show!! In addition, blue chair covers were also added to the backs of the chairs with the same logo! How could have these been made up so quick without the administration knowing? And who paid for them?? You and I, I suspect.

These screaming, WOOTS, and hollering and calls of “ I love you” to wet behind the ears liberal college students was an atrocity and affront to what should have been a solemn moment. Let’s compare that to George Bush’s speech at the Virginia Tech memorial in 2007. Or that of Ronald Reagan after the Challenger explosion in 1986. If I was the family of any of those victims, I would be appalled and angry and probably would have walked out!

No, instead we have the University of Tucson President introduce Obama by exalting his wonderful accomplishments and how lucky we are as a nation to have this guy as President at such a “perilous time” in our nation. Someone so full of energy and so smart… Excuse me, but what the hell does that have to do with a memorial service or a murderous madman killing a bunch of people?? Or how about the Mexican/Indian "healer"immigrant that got up and spoke and opened his comments, not with a memorial of the victims and what gave him the credentials to be on stage, but rather he felt it necessary to tell of his illegal Mexican heritage and his family. Again, totally unrelated and not appropriate at a memorial service. But clearly a political ploy to appeal to the illegal alien crowd. While at the same time, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was booed--no doubt in support of the Mexican immigrant--again, a pure political stunt!

Or the obviously gay guy who got up and said NOW we were all Americans after what happened. Right, because we were not Americans before this tragedy correct?? Comments clearly unnecessary and of course meant to demonize and vilify while being a nod to the extreme left gay lobby. Again, disgusting. But I wouldn’t be surprised if you see these 2 giving speeches at some future Democrat rally in 2012!!

Where were the solemn moments of silence? Where were the group prayers?
Where was the mention of GOD??
(unless of course you are referring to Obama's Great Messiah moment when he said Congresswoman Giffords miraculously opened her eyes after He went to visit in the hospital. Yes We Can! Oh, scratch that, Together We Thrive)

I mourn for these victims and families, but the left just cannot help themselves to turn everything into a political event and stunt—as they did with the disastrous Senator Paul Wellstone memorial in 2002.

God Bless them and ignore the opportunists amongst us…
