Founders' Daily Quote(s): 1/25-29/10

Monday, January 25, 2010.
"It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what it will be to-morrow." --Federalist No. 62

Here, here! READ THE BILL. After that, KILL THE BILL!

Tue. 1/26.
"There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations." --James Madison, speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 1788

This is so true. Americans, wake up! We must get rid of those in Congress, the whole lot of them. Except for Congressman Tom McClintock and others who have a record of not going along with all of this spending garbage. THAT IS OUR MONEY. Not theirs. They wouldn't spend a dime of their own, and don't fool yourselves into believing they would.

For those of you who think you are entitled to my money, why don't come over to my house and try to take it? Is it because you are afraid because I also believe in the 2nd Amendment? Do you need a government so bloated that they can do it for you? YOU, dear coward, are wrong. You are not entitled to my money, neither am I to yours. NO MATTER HOW MUCH I HAVE!

Wed. 1/27.
"If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to Thomas Cooper, 1802

Thu. 1/28.
"In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate - look to his character...." --Noah Webster, Letters to a Young Gentleman Commencing His Education, 1789

A special treat! State of the Union: Obama v. Constitution, by Alexander of Patriot Post.us.

Fri. 1/29.
"[A] good moral character is the first essential in a man, and that the habits contracted at your age are generally indelible, and your conduct here may stamp your character through life. It is therefore highly important that you should endeavor not only to be learned but virtuous." --George Washington, letter to Steptoe Washington, 1790

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
