Nice Republic You Got There

It would be a shame if anything happened to it.

How could this happen, you may ask?

Simple. Slavery is easy. Freedom is hard.

Years from now our children and grandchildren living in a 3rd world America will ask what were you doing on March 21st 2010 and why didn't you stop it?

To quote Ben Franklin...

Outside Independence Hall when the Constitutional Convention of 1787 ended, Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it."

I'm afraid you might be right Moose.

This is not the end. This is not even the beginning of the end. It can be said with some degree of accuracy that the beginning of the end was in the 1860's or thereabouts.

It's just another step on the road to the end.

Thanks for dropping by.

I know we're all crying in our beer right now, self included, but we can't afford fatalism right now.
If ever there was a time to get mad, now is it. While we can still make a difference from somewhere other than the rooftops.
