Quote of the Day

"With respect to the two words 'general welfare,' I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators." --James Madison

There you have it, right from the horses mouth. The Progressives would have you believe that the Federal government is,and of a right, SHOULD be, the final "safety net" for those on the low side of the spectrum. As you can see from the quote above, that was as far from the Founders original intent as it's possible to get.

The Founders believed in the equality of OPPORTUNITY, not the equality of outcome. The Federal government has usurped powers unto itself that are far beyond what the Constitution granted it, and it's up to US to rein that out of control animal back in line.

The Founders knew that a strong Federal Government would ALWAYS lead to tyranny, and took great pains to limit that central government to prevent said tyranny; WE have been lax in guarding against the pernicious gathering of Federal authority since the days of Woodrow Wilson and all but ceded control to the Government under Franklin Roosevelt, with the natural result of ever increasing intrusions upon our personal liberties ever since.

The Federal government is like a locomotive barreling down a steep slope, gaining speed and momentum at a geometric rate, I pray that we can get the brakes to hold to bring the train to a stop, but I fear it has reached the point where only a bloody derailment will accomplish that goal.
