wtf should I join in on the down with America chorus?
No, I am not "letting" the elite rule.
No, I don't always agree with the majority's opinion, but I respect this country's rule of law.
I thought this country was a Republic!
We disagree on what conditions anarchy would cause.
You may have a point w/ a permanent "state of emergency", I have read some of your other postings on that issue. We are in a state of emergency right now if you ask me.
Alaska might as well learn to speak Russian, Hawaii can embrace Japan, and Texas already speaks Spanish quite well.
"United we stand, divided we fall."
Take a look at the rest of the world and know when you have it good. We can change things for the better without tearing this country apart or down.
Ron Paul isn't asking people to take up arms and secede from the Union, he is asking people to VOTE for the revolution.
Rule "of" law?
That's part of the problem. It should be rule BY law not OF law. Rule by law dictates judgement by what the law says not what the judge says the law is.
People scream for justice in this nation. It's hard to get when you have activist judges and an ignorant jury pool! Just another topic NOT taught in our government indoctrination centers, other wise known as public schools.
You're absolutely right this country was a Republic at one time.
Remember Franklin's warning?
When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.
Or, this one.
Outside Independence Hall when the Constitutional Convention of 1787 ended, Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it."
Or, my favorite.
Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
Sound like the Patriot Act, and HR1955???
Until we unite around the Constitution and the Bill of Rights again and not some bozo the Parties pick for us, we will remain a divided people. President Washington, for goodness sake, warned in his farewell address to Congress the dangers of political parties and factions. His address used to be read into the record of every session of Congress until around 1946 or 47.
Maybe they should start that tradition again?
