"Yesterday the greatest question was decided, which ever was debated in America, and a greater perhaps, never was or will be decided among men. A resolution was passed without one dissenting Colony, that these United Colonies, are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States." -- John Adams (1735-1826), Letter to Abigail Adams, July 3, 1776

(Note that the vision of Adams was in states being superior to federal government and in no way subservient to it.)

Interesting!  Persons and groups are filing legal briefs related to Obama having multiple social security numbers (maybe as many as 8 of them); questioning his Hawaiian birth certificate because Hawaii allows a birth certificate to be issued after the fact (no time limit) if the request is attested to by a relative; questioning his citizenship because he may have gotten student loans while in college under a program reserved for loans to foreign students:

Instead of spending around $15-20 to produce his birth certificate the Obama organization has so far spent about a million dollars in legal fees to block legally filed requests to produce Obama's birth documents, AND, has started requesting legal sanctions against anyone filing such requests:  http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.2705/pub_detail.asp

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.
