Individual Thoughts

#1. We are governed by the Rule of Law (The US #Constitution) so we as a nation can be consistent in our laws without violating the Rights of the AMERICAN CITIZEN. Without Rule of Law, there are no consequences for illegal activity. Our Rule of Law dictates that #DACA is unconstitutional and therefore can not be Law and is in fact Non Enforceable because it was an Executive Order. Article 1 Section 1 clause 1 of our Constitution clearly states “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States” Rule of Law has absolutely nothing to do with the Race of an individual.

#2. Being such a short Article in our Constitution, and having re-read it probably 1000 times, there is no line in Artlcle 3 that declares the SCOTUS to be the interpreter of the Constitution. Article 3 Section 1 Clause 1 states “power shall extend to all cases, in law and equity, arising under this Constitution.” leaves absolutely no room for interpretation.

#3 As stated by Jefferson, “That the several states who formed [the Constitution], being sovereign and independent, have the unquestionable right to judge of its infraction; and that a nullification, by those sovereignties, of all unauthorized acts done under colour of that instrument, is the rightful remedy”.

#4 “When a strict interpretation of the Constitution is abandoned, and the theoretical opinions of individuals are allowed to control its meaning, we no longer have a Constitution; we are under the government of individual men, who have power to declare what the Constitution is according to their own views of what it ought to mean” – Justice Curtis, dissenting from the majority opinion in Dred Scott v. Sandford (1857)

#5 When you think about it, you understand that it is the Federal Government, through excessive regulations, that creates Black Markets.

#6 “The constitution, on which our Union rests, shall be administered by me according to the safe and honest meaning contemplated by the plain understanding of the people of the United states at the time of it’s adoption: a meaning to be found in the explanations of those who advocated, not of those who opposed it, and who opposed it merely lest the constructions should be applied which they denounced as possible. these explanations are preserved in the publications of the time, and are too recent in the memories of most men to admit of question.” – Thomas Jefferson, 27 March 1801
“the safe and honest meaning”, as opposed to the unsafe and dishonest meaning that comes from opposing sources.

#7 What is wrong with our Federal Government. Here is a simplified explanation …..
Let us start with the Legislative Branch:
Our Country is 20 trillion dollars in Debt. 80% of budget spent is on unconstitutional programs and agencies and because majority of both chambers of Congress are bought by lobbyist (regardless of party affiliation) this wont change on its own. Can not force the citizens of the USA to purchase products under penalty of law. Can only pass laws in pursuance of the Constitution.
Executive Branch:
supposed to VETO unconstitutional bills, has no power to create laws or regulations that bind a citizen. Can not mandate to citizens of the USA.
Judicial Branch:
Cannot Legislate or create laws by ruling or opinion.
All members of all 3 branches are required to repeat an Oath of Office “I, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same” which has a very specific meaning when talking about Rule of Law and not Rule of Man.

#8 ” it is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debt as it goes. I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them……. most bad government results from too much government” Thomas Jefferson

#9 Did you know that our Founders never intended for the unrestrained and often unconscionable freedom of the press practiced today and that all our Inalienable Rights carry with them the responsibility to not abuse them?
“On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” Thomas Jefferson to Supreme Court Justice William Johnson
Thomas Jefferson had declared “while we deny that the federal Congress have a right to control the freedom of the press, we have ever asserted the right of the states, and their exclusive right, to do so”
“Every citizen might freely speak, write, and print, on any subject, but is responsible for the abuse of that Liberty. Without such a check the press in the hands of evil and designing men, would become a most formidable engine, instrument, as mighty for mischief as for good.” James Kent a father of American jurisprudence
Another note regarding freedom of speech and of the press, “”Congress [Federal] shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.” That this amendment was intended to secure to every citizen and absolute right to speak, or right, or print, whatever he might please without any responsibility, public or private, therefore is a supposition too wild to be indulged by an rational man. This would allow every citizen a right to destroy at his pleasure the reputation, the peace, the property, and even the personal safety of every other citizen.” Joseph story US Supreme Court Justice and a father of American jurisprudence.
Our founders believed that any control by the states, regarding free speech and the press, must be rooted within the concept of responsibility, in fact, responsibility and the duty of stewardship is key to the preservation of Liberty.
Practicing the Principle of a Responsible Press, and not just being a political propagandist site, needs to become a mainstay in our country and it should start with the Gainesville Sun.

#10 Separation of Church and State
“On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” Thomas Jefferson to Supreme Court Justice William Johnson
The Progressive straying from the founders original meaning for the first amendment has been greatly facilitated by an overused, misused, and even regularly abused historical phrase “the separation of church and state”. Progressives and Atheist, to back their attack on Christianity, selectively take a phrase from President Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists, and have misrepresented its context for so long, that most people believe what is simply a lie.
Jefferson, an Anti Federalist, was replying to the Danbury Baptist congratulatory letter and concerns regarding the Federal Governments Constitutional prohibition of creating a “National“ Church. The final letter is as follows and contains the draft language as well as final language.
Jefferson’s Letter to the Danbury Baptists
(The Draft and Recently Discovered Text)
To messers Nehemiah Dodge, Ephraim Robbins, & Stephen S. Nelson, a committee of the Danbury Baptist association in the state of Connecticut.
Gentlemen
The affectionate sentiments of esteem & approbation which you are so good as to express towards me, on behalf of the Danbury Baptist association, give me the highest satisfaction. my duties dictate a faithful & zealous pursuit of the interests of my constituents, and, in proportion as they are persuaded of my fidelity to those duties, the discharge of them becomes more & more pleasing.
Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man & his god, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” thus building a wall of eternal separation between Church & State. Congress thus inhibited from acts respecting religion, and the Executive authorised only to execute their acts, I have refrained from prescribing even those occasional performances of devotion, practiced indeed by the Executive of another nation as the legal head of its church, but subject here, as religious exercises only to the voluntary regulations and discipline of each respective sect,
[Jefferson first wrote: “confining myself therefore to the duties of my station, which are merely temporal, be assured that your religious rights shall never be infringed by any act of mine and that.” These lines he crossed out and then wrote: “concurring with”; having crossed out these two words, he wrote: “Adhering to this great act of national legislation in behalf of the rights of conscience”; next he crossed out these words and wrote: “Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience I shall see with friendly dispositions the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced that he has no natural rights in opposition to his social duties.”]
I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection & blessing of the common father and creator of man, and tender you for yourselves & the Danbury Baptist [your religious] association assurances of my high respect & esteem.
Th Jefferson
Jan. 1. 1802.

” the general principles on which the father’s achieved Independence were the general principles of Christianity. Now I will avow that I then believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as Eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God. I could therefore safely say, consistently with all my then and present information, that I believed they would never make discoveries in contradiction to these general principles” John Adams in a letter to Thomas Jefferson.
In Updegraph v. the Commonwealth Supreme Court of Pennsylvania (1824), it was decided that ” Christianity, General Christianity, is, and always has been, a part of the common law. Not Christianity with an established church, but Christianity with liberty of conscience to all men.”
Since our citizens have allowed themselves to be uneducated in our Constitution and its guiding principles, they have left it to their civil leaders to interpret the Constitution as they see fit to cover for their agenda

#11 Having experienced the corruption of a monarchy in Great Britain for generations, the founders of America, after declaring and defending their right to freedom from that corruption during the Revolutionary War, wrote the constitution within the legal framework of empowering inalienable rights and protection of the American people, not empowering the government.

#12 “It is difficult for men in high office to avoid the malady of self-delusion,They are always surrounded by worshipers. They are constantly, and for the most part sincerely, assured of their greatness. They live in an artificial atmosphere of adulation and exaltation which sooner or later impairs their judgment. They are in grave danger of becoming careless and arrogant.” President Calvin Coolidge

#13 “Since our citizens have allowed themselves to be uneducated in our Constitution and its guiding principles, they have left it to their civil leaders to interpret the Constitution as they see fit to cover for their agenda” – Walt Boyer 2018 while pondering mans ineffective ability to practice self responsibility.

#14 “Every citizen might freely speak, write, and print, on any subject, but is responsible for the abuse of that Liberty.

#16 In The People v Ruggles, 1811
Supreme court of New York
“…. though the Constitution has discarded religious establishments, it does not forbid judicial cognizance of those offenses against religion and morality which have no reference to any such establishment. This constitutional declaration, noble and magnanimous as it is, when duly understood, never meant to withdraw religion in general and with it the best sanctions of moral and social obligations from all consideration and notice of the law. To construe the Constitution as breaking down the common law barriers against licentious wanton and impious attacks upon Christianity itself would be an enormous perversion of its meaning”……

#17 The Supreme court in 1885 declared that “no purpose of action against religion can be imputed to any legislation, state or national, because this is a religious people, this is a Christian Nation.”
In Updegraph v. the Commonwealth Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, it was decided that ” Christianity, General Christianity, is, and always has been, a part of the common law. Not Christianity with an established church, but Christianity with liberty of conscience to all men.”

#18 The Progressive straying from the founders original meaning for the first amendment has been greatly facilitated by an overused, misused, and even regularly abused historical phrase “the separation of church and state”. Progressives and Athiest, to back their attack on Christianity, selectively take a phrase from President Thomas Jeffersons letter to the Danbury Baptists, and have misrepresented its context for so long, that most people believe what is simply a lie.

#19 “Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of Education shall forever be encouraged.” Article 3 of the Northwest Ordinance which was signed into law by President George Washington on August 7th 1789

#20 the Founders, and even legal authorities for generations afterwards, viewed a belief in God as an inherent part of taking an oath. When you take an oath, you are making an appeal or declaration to God for the truth of what you are saying.
The US Constitution requires an oath of office which is a declaration to God that you will uphold those principles enshrined in our Constitution.

#21 Under glorious socialism, unpermitted commerce is forbidden. And licensed commerce has no rights except that which the state extends. And this is a goal of Liberalism.

#22 Let me start this by saying i am a Constitutionalist, a Conservative, and am proud to wrap that under the Republican brand. My vision of government is one that starts from the bottom up and empowers the individual, and not one that would control the people from the top down. We should not be ruled through regulations by unelected bureaucrats at any level. I believe in States Rights and State Sovereignty, as well as municipal home rule and Private Property Rights. Laws/Regulations (since they carry the weight of law) should only be passed by our elected legislative bodies as authorized in our Fed and State Constitutions as well as County and municipal charters. This assures elected officials are more accountable for the policies they support.
On the Federal level, our US Constitution plainly limits and defines the central governments role and responsibilities. By adhering to those limited and defined responsibilities, it removes the temptation of big money Lobbies/Corporations from influencing or dictating unconstitutional overreach that we are subjected to from DC. This also restores power back to the States so that the individual concerns of the States can be more appropriately addressed.
Because I am a constitutionalist I recognize that land defined and contained within a states border is a State resource and should never be controlled or regulated from the federal level.
We all acknowledge the importance that education and our environment has in our society. But the way we address these issues puts government in control and bestows upon it a power over the citizens while wasting trillions of taxpayer dollars. I feel this is a backwards approach to dealing with issues that impact our lives so directly.
To empower and protect our citizens from unelected bureaucrats, our unconstitutional federal agenda driven agencies should stop receiving federal taxpayer dollars. I would propose that, using EPA as an example, County EPAs should only advise county legislative body on important/sensitive local environmental issues and County legislative body would determine needed action/regulation while respecting the rights of the citizens it represents. State EPA would be comprised of appointed members from within each of the County EPAs, would be funded by the county EPAs and would advise State legislatures on intercounty environmental issues such as water. The “Federal” EPA would consist of appointed members from within each State EPA and governors of each state , would work together as a states sponsored body to address interstate enviromental issues and would be funded by the State EPAs. The Governors of each state would then work with their elected legislative bodies to address those interstate environmental issues.
I would recommend education be handled in the same manner starting at our county school boards.

#23 ” the general principles on which the father’s achieved Independence were the general principles of Christianity. Now I will avow that I then believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as Eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God. I could therefore safely say, consistently with all my then and present information, that I believed they would never make discoveries in contradiction to these general principles” John Adams in a letter to Thomas Jefferson

#24 ” what is an establishment of religion? It must have a Creed defining what a man must believe; it must have rites and ordinances which Believers must observe; it must have Ministers of defined qualifications to teach the doctrines and administer the rites; it must have test for the submissive and penalties for the nonconformist. There never was any established religion without all these. Had the people, during the revolution, had a suspicion of any attempt to war against Christianity, that Revolution would have been strangled in its cradle. At the time of the adoption of the Constitution and the Amendments, universal sentiment was that Christianity should be encouraged, not any one sect or denomination. Any attempt to level and discard all religion would have been viewed with universal indignation. It, religion, must be considered as a foundation on which the whole structure rest. In this age there can be no substitute for Christianity; that in its general principles, is the great conservative element on which we must rely for the Purity and permanence of free institutions. That was the religion of the founders of the Republic, and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants.” House Judiciary Committee 1853-1854

#25 ” as morality and piety rightly grounded on Evangelical principles will give the best and greatest security to government and will lay in the hearts of men the strongest obligations to due subjection and as the knowledge of these is most likely to be propagated through a society by the institution of the public worship of the Deity and of Public Instruction in Morality and religion, therefore, promote these important purposes, the people of the state have a right to empower and do hereby fully empower the legislature to authorize, from time to time the several towns parishes bodies corporate, or religious societies within the state to make adequate Provisions at their own expense for the support and maintenance of public Protestant teachers of piety, religion, and morality” New Hampshire state constitution

#26 “On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” Thomas Jefferson to Supreme Court Justice William Johnson

#27 When it comes to our Constitution. People want to change our constitution to conform to whatever issue they are pushing or supporting instead of actually researching and understanding the actual meaning, principles and limitations put forth by the framers.

#28 You can not substitute sameness for equality.

#29 A successful person will take limited resources and do an incredible job… an unsuccessful person will complain about having limited resources. Who do you want to be

#30 If Liberals were at all concerned with the wealthy getting wealthier, they would help to abolish the Federal Reserve, to break the grip of the Money Trust.

#31 Government’s Paternalism has not lifted one person out of poverty.
Government’s Paternalism has not slowed drug use.
Government’s Paternalism has not improved the family unit, has not increased the morality of a nation, has not allowed citizens the right to the fruits of their labor.
Government’s Paternalism creates dependence under the guise of security.
Government’s Paternalism is about elevating the power of the State above those of the individual.
Government’s Paternalism is the antithesis of our founding principles.

#32 Saw this on a blog site and wanted to share……”If we are self sufficient, then we don’t depend on the government, and if we don’t depend on the government, they cannot dominate and control the people. Their whole “spread the wealth” game is to make us dependent upon them, so they can therefore control the population.”

#33 “… when vain & aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our
country will … need … experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”
— Samuel Adams, 1780

#34 It is thru amendments that the original intent of our Constitution changes. Perfect example is the 17th Amendment which removed direct State control over the federal government and reduced our ability to to hold Senators accountable. Every principle of our Constitution can be legally changed if an Art 5 Convention is called.

#35 Always remember this fact… Politicians create the budget (or dont after 4 years), politicians do the spending, Politicians created the debt and constantly are adding to it, Politicians create the policies that control your lives, Politicians are unjust, immoral, and self serving… but they keep getting voted back into office. We need to get rid of the Politicians and find Representatives to replace them.

#36 It is not the federal governments job to be involved with, much less regulate many of the things they do… and then even excessively regulate to top it off. And as far as State governments go, they should only regulate business’s for consumer protections but not to the point where it interferes with individual liberty. Over regulation opens the door for fascism as well as monopolistic corporations.

#37  Nowhere do our founders,upon signing the Constitution, endorse a principle that the Constitution’s meaning changes; or that the understanding of the Constitution “evolves”; or that its meaning is determined or refashioned anew by successive generations. Do “We the People”, to whom the Constitution belongs, desire a restoration to the original meaning of the text of the Constitution, and do we have the will and effective power to achieve it? The first step towards restoring the original meaning and limitations the document placed on our government is understanding. Since “We the People” are the final arbiters of our Constitution, it is imperative for “We the People” to understand the Constitution.

#38 If there is a person of historical value that I would favor more than others, it would be James Madison. While reading his writings, I have just taught myself that to use the phrase “original intent” when discussing the meaning of our constitution, implies a subjectivity in its interpretation. Our Constitution’s meaning is an objective and static meaning flowing from its original sense, not from individual views.

#39  The judiciary is supposed to be the “least dangerous” branch and actually possesses the least power, and remained subject to the stronger checks held by the other branches. Unfortunately Progressive ideology, which ushered in Big Government beliefs, has taught the supremacy of the judicial and that the Supreme Court is in fact the last word on the meaning of the Constitution.

#40  The very point of the separation of powers is to divide and diffuse governmental authority in order to avoid concentrations of power dangerous to liberty. “The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny,” Madison wrote in Federalist 47. Maintaining the necessary degree of separation—and thus thwarting accumulations of power—required that the several branches “be so far connected and blended, as to give to each a constitutional control over the others,” he wrote in Federalist 48. Each branch must possess checks on the encroachments and aggression’s of the others. But, crucially, none must be permitted to exercise, “directly or indirectly, an overruling influence over the others in the administration of their respective powers.”

#41  The Constitution’s meaning consists of the objective, public meaning of its words and phrases at the time it was written. It is not a subjective document. Our Founders never intended that the Federal Courts, including the Supreme Court, be the arbiter of the Constitution’s meaning. Since it would control its own limitations thru Judicial “interpretation”, that allows the federal government control and permission to do what it chooses,.The Federal Government will never self limit its power. Once that power is granted to the federal and accepted by the people, that power will never be surrendered back to the people.

#42  I will state this again for those that don’t quite understand. Our Constitution established a Republic and not a Democracy. Any law created by Congress was supposed to be in accordance with the constitutional limitations imposed on the government through the Constitution. In a Democracy, there is no middle man protecting the rights of the minority from the majority. In a Democracy there is no need for checks and balances because it leads to Tyranny as leaders are elected to do the will of the Majority. Our Republic and our constitution, when followed as written, prevents this from happening. There is a HUGE difference between the two words, but Progressives are hell bent on government control and insist that Democracy and our Republic are the same. A Republic safe guards rights and a Democracy leads to tyranny of the majority.. it is really a simple concept to understand.

#43  Our country was Constitutionally designed as a Republic and not a “Democracy” for the explicit reason of keeping the Federal government under control. (There is real difference in the terms as applied) Progressivism, however, has been changing us from a Republic into a Democracy because Progressives believe that the Federal Government is more capable of “caring” for our citizens. Since 1913 and the passing of the 17th amendment, the States are no longer represented thru appointed Senators that could be easily recalled and have no control over the Federal Government overreach. The only part of government that was designed to be democratically elected was the peoples house known as the House of Representatives. So in reality we have not had a Senate since 1913. We have 2 Houses of Representatives… one with 2 year terms and the other with 6 year terms. Without a proper understanding of the whys regarding our Constitution, people have accepted the slow change into mob rule, which is what a Democracy is. Please share what I have wrote. Constitutional education thru exponential multiplication.

#44 “For what purpose could the enumeration of particular powers be inserted, if these and all others were meant to be included in the preceding general power? Nothing is more natural nor common than first to use a general phrase, and then to explain and qualify it by a recital of particulars. But the idea of an enumeration of particulars which neither explain nor qualify the general meaning, and can have no other effect than to confound and mislead, is an absurdity, which, as we are reduced to the dilemma of charging either on the authors of the objection or on the authors of the Constitution, we must take the liberty of supposing, had not its origin with the latter.” – James Madison Federalist 41

#45 Free men do not live their life in fear of the hypothetical – Walt Boyer 2020

#46 The problems we are facing with our government are due to our officials ignoring the limitations placed on the government by the Constitution. We need to make a stand against the Washington cartel. An important part of “fixing” America and making “America Great Again” is to return to constitutionalism and limitation of government. When voting for Congress, please look into which candidate can best return us to our constitutionally limited government.

#47 GOVERNMENT is not reason, it is not eloquence—it is force! Like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.”……. our founders understood the need of establishing government. They also recognized that a government left unchecked does become coercive and tyrannical. They also realized that when man is left to govern himself (no government structure) then that anarchy leads to a Mad Max world. Anarchy pits people and groups against other people and groups. This is evident thru history since man’s evolution/creation. Our founders found a balance that secures maximum liberties for our citizens while at the same time protecting the weaker minority voice from the majority. Our Republic form of government is not like any other. It was not coercive in its nature. Man, in his continual pursuit of power, has turned our Republic into this coercive force that we all now complain about which in no way resembles what our founders left us. Whose fault is this? It is ours for allowing progressivism to take us to what more closely resembles west European socialist governments. For anyone’s fyi…. Anarchy begets socialism and socialism begets communism…. so socialist will always support anarchy.

#48 The wording and placement of the Second Amendment highlights the brilliance of the Founders. Being that it was second shows how high in regard the founders placed in private gun ownership. They also knew that those who have the guns have the power. In our country the people are supposed to have the power, not the government. Sadly many Americans are content to relinquish this right and responsibility. The 2nd Amendment also clearly states that that right “shall not be infringed upon”, meaning the government has no right to restrict that right by any means. Today’s democrat party has no regard for your constitutional rights

#49 While there are many ideological differences between the “Right” and the “Left”, there are also several area’s in which most of us agree. The influence of money in politics is surely a hot button issue for many of us. How we fix the problem of bought and paid for politicians by the Corporate Fascists (Corporations combining power with Government to influence our laws) is so different that it should be pointed out. The left wants to focus on campaign finance reform. While those on the left had absolutely no problem with campaign finance laws when they held the monetary advantage because of the Workers Unions (collectively one of the largest lobbying groups buying our politicians) and corporate donations that came their way, as soon as Citizens United was established and it evened the financial playing field, the left had a collective meltdown. “We need to overturn Citizens United” is the lefts solution to campaign finance reform regardless that they are benefiting from it. This would effectively return the financial advantage back to the Democrats, and this is the outcome those on the left desire. They do not care that Democrat politicians will be bought and paid for as long as Republicans are weakened.

To many of us on the “Right” the answer to removing the influence of money in our politics is a true remedy. Our remedy can be found in the enumerated powers of our US Constitution. We can alleviate the money influence of lobbiest by adhering to those enumerated powers, because the government would no longer be funding the unconstitutional programs lobbiest represent. The results would be amazing. No one would want to stay in elected office for more than a couple terms, our taxes would be lower because the size of government would shrink by 85% (percentage of taxes currently spent on unconstitutional policy and agencies), small business would prosper because of the removal of corporatist influence over our government, real unemployment would be reduced with the increase of small business’s(there will always be unemployed), there would be more incentive to achieve individual wealth and success, and with the removal of corporations influence over our government we would see the return of our free market system that puts consumers in charge, our markets would be competitive again and would be reflected in our cost of goods.
Another corporate entity that adhering to our US Constitution eliminates, would be the Federal Reserve. If those on the “left” and “right” truly have a problem with Corporate Fascism and the influence of money in our politics, the Federal Reserve should be their primary target. It is owned by “too big to fail” banking institutions and partners with our government in its control over our monetary system. The Federal Reserve is the creature that feeds our national debt. For more information on our Federal Reserve System, I encourage reading “The Creature from Jekyll Island” by G. Edward Griffin
#50 “This is not a suggestion that the Government should, or could, assume for the people the inevitable burdens of existence. There is no method by which we can either be relieved of the results of our own folly or be guaranteed a successful life. There is an inescapable personal responsibility for the development of character, of industry, of thrift, and of self-control. These do not come from the Government, but from the people themselves.” Calvin Coolidge

#51 Here is a thought, what if the government was more fiscally responsible, and less intrusive in our lives (lived within the confines of our Constitution), and you were able to keep more of your money you made the effort to earn, because taxes were lower and employers were able to pay more to employee’s because their business taxes were lower and more people were working because more people had money to spend because of the lower taxes and the higher wages that caused the businesses to employ more people… hmmm it all seems to relate.

#52 The government has intervened in every aspect of our lives in the attempt to control us. They regulate small businesses and farms out of existence and that allows the big monopolistic corporations to take over. Of course the big corporations are controlled by the government….i.e.. GE and Monsanto. Now when everyone is saying how bad Big Corporations are, just remember that it is the fault of BIG GOVERNMENT that they exist.

#53 We should not have to work to support our government, our government should be working to support us in the most cost effective and least intrusive way possible.

#54 Compassion should not out weigh common sense.

#55 History teaches us that power gained ultimately leads to power exercised. The time to fight for our freedom is before those freedoms are totally lost. Once our freedoms are gone, it is definitely harder to get them back
