"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and pursuit of Happiness: that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." Declaration of Independence, 4 July 1776, Reference: Jefferson: Writings, Peterson ed., Library of America (19)

May we return to these rights upon the next nomination by President Bush. My hope is for Janice Rogers Brown!

"The reformation was preceded by the discovery of America, as if the Almighty graciously meant to open a sanctuary to the persecuted in future years, when home should afford neither friendship nor safety." --Thomas Paine (Common Sense, 1776), Reference: Paine Writings, Foner, ed., 25.

"The apportionment of taxes on the various descriptions of property is an act which seems to require the most exact impartiality; yet there is, perhaps, no legislative act in which greater opportunity and temptation are given to a predominant party to trample on the rules of justice. Every shilling which they overburden the inferior number is a shilling saved to their own pockets." --James Madison (Federalist No. 10, 23 November 1787), Reference: Madison, Federalist No. 10

Ah, yes. The old, "Steal from Peter to pay Paul." Must be careful to never let this happen. What is that? It's too late? NEVER! Never quit if you believe in the truth. The truth is we can win this fight against communism. Call it what you will, it is still the same.

"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffusd and Virtue is preservd. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauchd in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders." --Samuel Adams (letter to James Warren, 4 November 1775), Reference: Our Sacred Honor, Bennett (261)

Dear Left, this is why we fight you.
