"Quote of the Day"

"Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage on them." --Thomas Jefferson

Don't Believe All You Hear

Obama said this week, "We've done more than ever, faster than ever, more responsibly than ever, to get the gears of the economy moving again. ... We're in a position to really accelerate."

OK, "more than ever" may be accurate, because I never would have dreamed we could move towards socialism this fast. But "more responsibly than ever"??? PLEASE!!! Is anybody really this stupid? Remember, not ONE person read the text of the $787 billion "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act" before voting on it. Where is the media when he is allowed to make such preposterous claims!

Obama also said, "I have studied the Constitution as a student; I have taught it as a teacher; I have been bound by it as a lawyer and legislator. I took an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution as commander in chief, and as a citizen, I know that we must never -- ever -- turn our back on its enduring principles for expedience sake."

Once again, how is he allowed to get by with such statements. Why can't the Left simply be intellectually honest. They are ignoring the Constitution and the principles upon which this country was founded.

The Founding Fathers knew that the growth of our Federal Government would be the biggest impediment to the lasting prosperity of the country that they had shaped. As our American Militia was fighting to free us from the oppresive British Monarch, they understood that liberty for each individual can only be accompanied by a Capitalist System that allows each citizen the Equality of Rights to control their own financial circumstances.

The brand of economy that Obama is fashioning is Equality through Socialism. And you need only consider the salary limits he wishes to place on CEO's to understand how it works. His plan is to pull the financially successful back to the pack, instead of allowing the pack to pursue that same level of success.
