Founders' Daily Quote(s): 3/30-4/3/09

Monday, March 30, 2009.
"Wise politicians will be cautious about fettering the government with restrictions that cannot be observed, because they know that every break of the fundamental laws, though dictated by necessity, impairs that sacred reverence which ought to be maintained in the breast of rulers towards the constitution of a country."

--Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 25, 21 December 1787

Quick! Someone tell Congress! Oh? They already know this? Yup. You betcha they do, and they just don't care. Is this when our forefathers revolted? Hmm...

"I am commonly opposed to those who modestly assume the rank of champions of liberty, and make a very patriotic noise about the people. It is the stale artifice which has duped the world a thousand times, and yet, though detected, it is still successful."

--Fisher Ames, letter to George Richard Minot, 23 June 1789

Yes indeed. I cannot hear you because your deeds are speaking much louder than your words.

"Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time, who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing."

--Thomas Jefferson, letter to Martha Jefferson, 5 May 1787

"It is necessary for every American, with becoming energy to endeavor to stop the dissemination of principles evidently destructive of the cause for which they have bled. It must be the combined virtue of the rulers and of the people to do this, and to rescue and save their civil and religious rights from the outstretched arm of tyranny, which may appear under any mode or form of government."

--Mercy Warren, History of the Rise, Progress, and Termination of the American Revolution, 1805

"The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position."

--George Washington, Farewell Address, 1796

They must have known that we would have an Iowa Supreme Court telling us that they can make public policy with just the flick of their magic wand! Yes, no legislation necessary. No votes required. Just give us the power which we do NOT have to make such a law as homosexuals have the right to marry each other. Excuse me, they've always had the right marry...someone of the OPPOSITE sex. You are fooling with Mother Nature, and you know how she feels about that.
