"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

Do We Stand A Chance?


All the world's great civilizations have followed the same path. From bondage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy back to bondage. If we are to be the exception to history, then we must break the cycle. For those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. - MOLLY JOHNSON, Swing Vote (2008)

We're in the apathy stage, and whether you believe it or not we're rapidly approaching the bondage stage again. Read your history folks. Read about serfdom in the 1500's in Europe. When you do, ask yourself it that's something you want your children to live through. If the answer is no, stay connected and engaged. Continue to contact your Senators and Reps. Again today a sitting Congressman has announced his retirement. This time it's Patrick Kennedy from Rhode Island. These people are afraid of 'we the people', folks- perhaps for the first time in their lives. Certainly for the first time in mine. And only the arrogant and extremely corrupt, or the principled and honorable will be left come election day. Your mission is to determine which is which...

Stay Engaged, America! We Have Work To Do...


  1. Not making excuses for PK or other retiring polititions, but why and the h_ll would any of them want to stick around. The damage has been done. Any path Reid and Polosi takes them down because they personally are too weak to fight against is moot and only hastens the end result.(apathy) They see the writing on the wall of collapse and they just don't want to be a part of it!

  2. They're already complicit in the destruction, Roots. But like the weasels they are, they're going to slink out of town so they don't have to share the blame... The history books will show these slimeballs (from both parties) for who and what they are, provided our side wins this ideological battle.

  3. Very interesting and of great concern
    I enjoyed visiting your blog
