"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

This guy gets it.

A bureaucrat is a bureaucrat is a bureaucrat, Republican or Democrat. A statist comes in blue and red.

Government chips away at freedom. Freedoms our founders worked mightily to establish and that we piss away with each vote for another politician with a good idea how to get things done by micromanaging our lives.

Agree.  And how many of these known statists will be re-elected this fall?

Not a one if I have my way! I suspect that I won't!

Yes, this guy gets it.  We find ourselves in a heck of a mess, don't we?

While I recognize that  for my entire lifetime the federal bureaucracy has been continually expanding and compromising our freedoms, I also must acknowledge that the process did slow a bit under Ike and Reagan.  GWB was a disaster, as was Nixon.  GHWB was not as bad as his son, but worse than Ike & Reagan.

Mostly, what GOP presidents do is run interference for the establishment to keep conservatives contained, just as OPapaDoc keeps libs contained today.
