"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

What Do You Think About This?

Do you think we're a nation of just laws? Are you comfortable with the laws we have? Are you comfortable with the number of laws that we have?

An interesting comment on the radio today...

If we read 700 pages of laws a week, how long would it take to read them all? Are you ready? Twenty-five THOUSAND years! What if that's an exaggeration? Would 1000 years be acceptable? 100? And so then the question begs to be asked, how do we know there aren't laws that contradict other laws? Who's keeping track of them all? Why are they all necessary? Do you think we're a little over the top? And if you do the research, you'll find that the number of laws passed yearly grows exponentially. Do you think enough is enough? Or maybe too much? Time to take the country back from the lawyers? They have absolutely damaged our liberty, so maybe it is...

If You Aren't Outraged, You Aren't Paying Attention!
