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

Remembering 9/11 Ten Years Later

Let us take time on this day to pray for and remember the victims of these horrfic events.

Let us pray daily for the family and friends of the victims especially those of our brave first reponders that gave their lives to save others.

Let us remember the great signs of bravery, hope, and light on a day of such darkness.

Let us continue to be vigilant against evil and those that threaten the United States.

Let us protect our Republic with all our power while remembering our Founding Principles and the laws of our Constitution.

As we go forward from today and every day let us acclaim again that we will NEVER forget!

God Bless the victims, their families and friends and the United States of America!
