“I, however, place economy among the first and most important republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared.  Our country is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first, and then corruption, its necessary consequence.”
~ Thomas Jefferson

Looks like Jefferson had a crystal ball that allowed him to look into the future, doesn't it?.

"By gnawing through a dike, even a rat may drown a nation."  - Edmond Burke

"The free man will ask neither what his country can do for him nor what he can do for his country." – Milton Friedman

The people must also be self-assertive. They must have the spirit of the old Revolutionary War flag: "Don't tread on me!" They must be vigilant against those, at home or abroad, in or out of government, who might wish to trample on their rights. They must be courageous and manly, with a sense of honor, so that in hard times they will stand up and fight, and not slink away slavishly so as to avoid trouble and danger.

Thomas G. West and Douglas A. Jeffrey, The Rise & Decline of Constitutional Government in America

The most important moral of all is that excellence is where you find it. I would extend this generalization to cover not just higher education but all education from vocational high school to graduate school. We must learn to honor excellence, indeed to demand it in every socially accepted human activity, however humble that activity, and to scorn shoddiness, however exalted the activity. An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because philosophy is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water. --- John William Gardner (1912 - )

COMMENTARY:
Have you ever wondered why the current administration seems to be taking absolutely insane actions when it comes to our economy?  The TARP and Stimulus Programs all put money in at the top of the economy, but what would have happened if, instead,  they had taken that same amount of money and dedicated it to running the government for a year (about the same cost) while not collecting any personal or business taxes for a year?  The answer is clear.  There would have been fewer defaulted mortgages, fewer job losses, and fewer business failures. and we wouldn't be in the sorry economic situation we have now.  Did the President and his advisors really believe the actions they took would be the answer to our economic problems?  It could be that President Obama really believed it was the right thing to do because he has no real world private business experience.  But what about his advisors?  Go to and read the following link and you will begin to understand why the outlook for our immediate economic situation doesn't appear to be very rosy.  It is called incompetence folks:  http://blog.american.com/?p=7572

Seems like the Obama Administration doesn't agree with Lincoln.
Rather, they seem to have adopted the philosophy of:

OF THE GOVERNMENT
BY THE GOVERNMENT
FOR THE GOVERNMENT

RIGHT?



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.
