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

King Barry continues to flip his middle finger at the rule of law and Constitution as he continues to violates the War Powers Act which requires that he seek Congressional approval for any military action he ordered without the approval of Congress after 60 days.

This of course has to do with Libya, and King Barry says because we have such a "limited role" that he does not need Congresses' approval. And of course he is getting cover from the left and pro-war Republicans like John McCain.

Obama is clearly splitting hairs in this situation and as usual will find whatever way he can to circumvent the law and do whatever the hell he wants!

I hope someone in his own party, like Dennis Kucinich, actually grows a set and initiates impeachment for this clear violation. But don't hold your breath, it seems no one with any means to do so will stand up to this Chicago thug and criminal...
