The Federalist: Founders' Daily Quote(s)

Monday, February 28, 2005
"Public opinion sets bounds to every government, and is the real sovereign in every free one." --James Madison

Oh really? Would you please tell that to the Supremes...!

"The regular distribution of power into distinct departments; the introduction of legislative balances and checks; the institution of courts composed of judges holding their offices during good behavior; the representation of the people in the legislature by deputies of their own election.... They are means, and powerful means, by which the excellences of republican government may be retained and its imperfections lessened or avoided." --Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 9

Is it good behavior to look at another country's laws to make your case for your decision? Hmm? What is our recourse when we have an inept legistature? How did we become a "safe" district for so many losers of both parties? Is party affiliation really all it's cracked up to be? Just a few thoughts. I'm tired of every year voting, and I know that no matter what-the majority of the same people will be returning. So why, do tell, do they spend their career raising money if they know they won't be defeated? Hmm. Disgusting.

"Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence, (I conjure you to believe me fellow citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake; since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of Republican Government." --George Washington

Wake up, Supremes! Beware!

"But as the plan of the convention aims only at a partial union or consolidation, the State governments would clearly retain all the rights of sovereignty which they before had, and which were not, by that act, EXCLUSIVELY delegated to the United States." --Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 32

Try telling that to the Supremes. I guess I'm rather upset with the decisions, or lack thereof, this morning in particular. I have been holding off on writing this, because I have been upset. They can take Lawrence v. Texas, Supremes v. God, but they won't take business owners v. employees?

The 9th Circus said that employers cannot ask employees any discovery questions as to where a person was born, legality in this country, etc., because it would be discriminatory? Huh?

"They accomplished a revolution which has no parallel in the annals of human society. They reared the fabrics of governments which have no model on the face of the globe. They formed the design of a great Confederacy, which it is incumbent on their successors to improve and perpetuate." --James Madison, Federalist No. 14

Yes. Yes they did. I thank God for them not as often as I should, but I do. Thank you for bestowing upon us this great nation, even with the flakes that come with it. Hehehe. Have a great day everyone.
