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

As a follow up to my previous post, King Barry is feeling the heat for unconstitutional war making and violation of the War Powers Act by continuing the Libyan operation without permission of Congress and has now started operations against Yemen, again, illegal and unconstitutional.

Members from both parties are rightfully upset, except those of course that prefer never ending wars like the old hack John McCain and the predictable RINO, Lindsey Graham among others.

What do I think should be done to all of them?? IMPEACH!! ALL funding should be IMMEDIATELY halted and operations CEASE and DESIST unless Congress gives EXPLICIT permission to do so, PERIOD! The United States is BEYOND broke and we should not, under any circumstances, be running around the world trying to find "monsters to slay" to keep the war machine running for arm chair generals...
