Rand Paul On Why People Don't Trust Congress
« on: July 14, 2014, 06:25:38 AM »
"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

I don't agree with Rand Paul on everything - but that were majestic.

Because government simply cannot be trusted, no matter what the form.

Madison warned people to never trust their freedom to another person.

They have too much money, and too much power.

That gives them reasons to be involved with all sorts of matters, never intended by the founders.

Interests from across the spectrum use government's money and power, to further their agendas.

Crony capitalists, and do-gooder social interests write most legislation.

Meanwhile the highways don't get maintenance, and the Keystone pipeline goes unbuilt, both of which involve jobs, for skilled people willing to work.

Attention along the border is for leftist social interests, where the jobs gained are for nanny-state do-gooders that work for govt. agencies.
