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

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

I don't agree with Rand Paul on everything - but that were majestic.
Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.

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.
