The Federalist: Founders' Daily Quote 6/18/2005

Monday, June 6, 2005
"Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition." --Thomas Jefferson

If only I could explain all the programs which make people dependent! Oh, what a better country we would have. Getting rid of the social programs is NOT mean. It is necessary to regain the family unit and virtue.

How? If you have no one to pay your way, you will rely on your family. In the converse, you will feel a duty to care for your family.

"Each State, in ratifying the Constitution, is considered as a sovereign body, independent of all others, and only to be bound by its own voluntary act. In this relation, then, the new Constitution will, if established, be a FEDERAL, and not a NATIONAL constitution." --James Madison, Federalist No. 39

What a different concept! I never quite looked at the difference between national and federal before. Maybe someone should write an article on this.

"A feeble Executive implies a feeble execution of the government. A feeble execution is but another phrase for a bad execution; and a government ill executed, whatever it may be in theory, must be, in practice, a bad government." --Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 70

How well we know this. Well, at least some of us recognize that communism, no matter how many times it is tried, enslaves, corrupts, corrodes, and destroys itself. Oh, you thought I was talking about President Bush? You are at the wrong site. The Hate America First blog is over at Bye.
