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 Goodwin Liu- Nomination DEAD in the Senate!!

Thank you GOP Senators! Finally on a rare occasion your have not disappointed America and more importantly have voted FOR the Constitution in defeating the nomination of the radical leftist judge, Goodwin Liu.

This Marxist radical has openly stated that the Constitution is 100% subject to interpretation as he sees fit and that the United States should be subject to world law, amongst other radical positions.

He would have been a scourge on our court and a black eye to the rule of law and the Constitution for decades to come and we should rejoice at this small but important victory for getting this Marxist out and sent packing back to Berkeley where he belongs.

And NOTHING makes me happier than to hear Patrick Leahy (D-VT), the chief judicial Marxist in the Senate, whine and cry about the audacity of Republicans to DO WHAT THE CONSTITUTION REQUIRES and that is hold judicial nominees up to a high test of Constitutional integrity. Unfortunately, they have failed at this test to many times recently but at least in this case I will give them credit for doing the right thing. Leahy lamented that he could not further his social engineering of the court stating, "There are no Asian-Pacific Americans on the bench." Leahy has been attempting this engineering through other unqualified appointments such as Kagan and Sotomayor- picks that were clearly designed to make the court a social petri dish rather than to protect and uphold the Constitution as written.

Thank you, GOP. At least for today you found your spine!
