A man of conviction. A man after God's heart.

"In the midst of these pleasing ideas we should be unfaithful to ourselves if we should ever lose sight of the danger to our liberties if anything partial or extraneous should infect the purity of our free, fair, virtuous, and independent elections. If an election is to be determined by a majority of a single vote, and that can be procured by a party through artifice or corruption, the Government may be the choice of a party for its own ends, not of the nation for the national good." --John Adams

A man after my own heart! Illegal aliens do not have a right to vote in our elections. Yet they do. Why? Because no one in power has the political will to stop it. It doesn't matter how many calls, letters, demonstrations, etc. they receive or see. I say throw the bums out! Then, maybe, they will listen to us.

"The constitution of the United States is to receive a reasonable interpretation of its language, and its powers, keeping in view the objects and purposes, for which those powers were conferred. By a reasonable interpretation, we mean, that in case the words are susceptible of two different senses, the one strict, the other more enlarged, that should be adopted, which is most consonant with the apparent objects and intent of the Constitution." --Joseph Story

Okay, huh?
