"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

Sorry, but I'm pretty cynical with this being an election year.  She could have stood up & said these things over the last few years.  She would have really made news, in fact.  Suddenly, she's a responsible legislator who's worried about debt and thinks it's bad for politicians to say "yes" to everyone?  She sounds exactly like a lot of Republicans and conservatives when she talks about how the Constitution was designed, federal government overreach, debt, & deficits.  Politicians (especially Dems) do this every election cycle--sell themselves as more conservative than they really are, then govern as liberals who can't seem to constrain the government to its proper role.  I'm not buying it.
