Founders' Daily Quote(s): 4/20-4/24/09

"[T]he hour is fast approaching, on which the Honor and Success of this army, and the safety of our bleeding Country depend. Remember officers and Soldiers, that you are Freemen, fighting for the blessings of Liberty - that slavery will be your portion, and that of your posterity, if you do not acquit yourselves like men."

--George Washington, General Orders, 23 August 1776

As is the same situation we face in these days of a government hostile to half of its citizens. They all have forgotten from whence comes their authority, and I assure you it is not from an unknown source. Let they wake up their dead bones and be alive once more, before the mighty fall as does with every arrogant tyrannical form of government, be it from within or without.

"But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations... This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution."

--John Adams, letter to H. Niles, 13 February 1818

Amen! And may it flow through every red-blooded American forevermore.

"To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it."

--Thomas Jefferson, letter to Joseph Milligan, 6 April 1816

Thu. 4/23/09.
"The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite."

--James Madison, Federalist No. 45

We are guarantteed a republican form of government. Without this form of government, there can be no liberty. My dear friends, we have lost our republican form of government through the decades of misuse and abuse of the Constitution. Whenever we challenge this fact, we are told to shut up, go away, we don't what we're talking about. I beg to differ. It is our government and an uneducated graduates who are wrong and who have stolen our Liberty, and it is we who have allowed this perversion to occur. What say you now?

"Besides, to lay and collect internal taxes in this extensive country must require a great number of congressional ordinances, immediately operation upon the body of the people; these must continually interfere with the state laws and thereby produce disorder and general dissatisfaction till the one system of laws or the other, operating upon the same subjects, shall be abolished."

--Federal Farmer, Antifederalist Letter, 10 October 1787

See? I'm not the only one that can see this. It was foreseen and foretold! Let's abolish the IRS now! ;)
