England 's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview.
When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America , he said:
"A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in ... And how many want out."
Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.
One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
"We all talk about the 'Greatest Generation' - our Fathers, Brothers, Cousins - who saved the World from tyranny. What will our Children have to say about us, we that gave up Western Civilization to the International Socialists and Islamists?"
I now realize that we are infested with parasites; as destructive as termites, dangerous as rabid dogs, and invisible like bed-bug mites. No, I dont mean the welfare grifters or robbers in our society indeed I wish they were all we had to worry about.
The real parasites are the lawyers, especially those in any legislative position or the bureaucracies that support them. We have allowed (?) them to create our laws AND interpret our laws. Meanwhile they blithely steal our time, treasure, and heritage for the common good which they consider to be their wallet!
"Never argue with a fool,
onlookers may not be able to tell the difference."
-- Mark Twain
Sad to say, but it seems a lot of 21st Century FReepers are inherently ignorant, which is why I have not changed my Tag-Line since I added it prior to 9-11. It's been said that Politics is the art of the possible; in order to do that you need knowledge, and in this wild-and-wooly Internet there is no reason for anyone to be as ignorant of words or history as a lot of us seem to be. Another sad point is that even some of those who should know better have bought into the politically-correct diversity-driven pablum that has infected DC, which is why a lot of the more senior FReepers have been banned or gone into lurker mode.
Wake up and pay attention, or your children will be slaves!
Britain and America won the battles of WWII.
The National Socialists are winning the War.
Thanks to the Labour and Democratic Parties.
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banners openly.
But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.
-- Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC-43 BC)
"I believe in mom, apple pie and baseball. I believe in defending our nation when threatened or attacked. I believe in the United States Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. I believe that our rights come from God and that we're all to be treated equally before the law. I'm pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, and pro-gun. I'm for less government, less taxes and less corruption. I'm for equal rights for all, but not special rights for special interests. I'm for the traditional family and against the feminist/homosexualist agenda. I'm for allowing God back into our schools and getting government the hell out. I'm for getting the US out of the UN and kicking the UN out of the US. I'm opposed to liberalism and opposed to judicial activism. I'm opposed to socialism and I'm for freedom. Have no idea if that makes me a conservative in your eyes or not and could care less one way or the other."

When you see that trading is done,
not by consent, but by compulsion
When you see that in order to produce,
you need permission from men who produce nothing
When you see that money is flowing to those who deal,
not in goods, but in favors
When you see that men get richer by graft and pull than by hard work,
and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you
When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming self-sacrifice
You may know your society is doomed.
If you do not use the First Amendment to ensure the Second Amendment is not infringed,
you will rue the day you need to use the Second Amendment to regain the First Amendment.
- I know of a Widowed Mother who lived in Greece, NY, with three kids, that had her house seized because her 19yo son sold drugs there while she was at work.
- I believe that 11 men have been cut free in Illinois, because while they were placed on Death Row by the State Justice Department, they were determined to be innocent.
- The Media and the Public didn't raise a stink about the Branch Davidian Massacre by the Federal Government, because the Government said they were abusing children, manufacturing meth., and dealing in fully-automatic weapons.
- Several News Reporters have been banned from the White House Press Conferences because they bylined stories critical of the Administration.
When they took the fifth amendment,
I was quiet because I didn't own real estate.
When they took the fourth amendment,
I was quiet because I didn't deal drugs.
When they took the sixth amendment,
I was quiet because I was innocent.
When they took the second amendment,
I was quiet because I didn't own a gun.
Now they've taken the first amendment,
and I can say nothing about it.
It is dangerous to be right
when your Government is wrong !!
"The right to be left alone ...
... the right most valued by civilized man."
-- Louis D. Brandeis, Associate Justice, U.S. Supreme Court
"All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void."
--- Marbury ~vs~ Madison, 5 US (2 Cranch) 137, 174, 176, (1803)
"When rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them."
--- Miranda ~vs~ Arizona, 384 US 436 p. 491.
"An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed."
--- Norton ~vs~ Shelby County, 118 US 425 p. 442.
"The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of it's enactment, not merely from the date of the decision branding it. "No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it."
--- 16 Am Jur 2d, Sec 177, late 2d, Sec 256.
