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

Rick Perry is Right: Social Security IS a Ponzi Scheme

I am not the biggest Rick Perry fan, but on this issue he is 100% correct and Mitt Romney (and anyone who wants to keep Social Security going) is 100% wrong!
Think the phrase "Ponzi Scheme" is to harsh? Read this and see the simple explanation.

The fact that people like Mitt Romney insists on keeping generations of future employees tied into this LOSER program-knowing damn well that taxes would need to be drastically increased to support it and "benefits" cut equally, should automatically disqualify him from being a Presidential candidate--and he CERTAINLY cannot be called "Conservative" for such a position!

This program, like Medicare, is dragging us off the cliff. If Romney and others want to go with it, they can feel free to do so, but leave the rest of us who are sensible and responsible ALONE!
