"Nothing is more certain than that a general profligacy and corruption of manners make a people ripe for destruction. A good form of government may hold the rotten materials together for some time, but beyond a certain pitch, even the best constitution will be ineffectual, and slavery must ensue." -- John Witherspoon (1733-1794), The Dominion of Providence Over the Passions of Men, 1776

(sometimes you just have to wonder if some of our forefathers were visionaries)

Observations on a few government programs: http://www.commuteroutrage.com/2008/11/25/still-crumbling/

A tought in passing - government stimulus programs: Well, let's see now. The government collects $100 from each of us and deducts $25 for the operations of the government agencies involved in revenue collection. Next it deducts another $25 for the operations of the government agencies involved in revenue disbursement. Then it send us back the remaining $50 as an economic stimulus package. Lastly, while mentioning their part in the program in glowing terms, the politicians try to convince us how much they are concerned about our welfare.

Are you unhappy with the way many things are going in the USA?  If you are then let your elected representatives hear from you.  Our nation is a "representative republic."  In other words a nation where our legislators are supposed to represent your wishes, but, if you don't let them hear from you how are they supposed to know what things concern you?  Generally liberals are more group oriented than are conservatives, and tend to be more activist in nature. 

That's why things in our country have been becoming more and more liberal in nature, even though conservatives outnumber the liberals.  Remember, our nation only works as our founders designed it to work if the citizens participate in its operation.
