"But how is this legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime."
-- Frederic Bastiat

I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on the objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents."
-- James Madison
(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President

"The policy of American government is to leave its citizens free, neither restraining them nor aiding them in their pursuits."
-- Thomas Jefferson
(1743-1826), US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President - Source: Thomas Jefferson to M. L'Hommande, 1787.

Former Congressman Davy Crockett - "We have the right as individuals to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right to appropriate a dollar of the public money."

"I feel obliged to withhold my approval of the plan to indulge in
benevolent and charitable sentiment through the appropriation of public funds... I find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution." -- Grover Cleveland
(1837-1908) 22nd & 24th US President -Source: In 1887 when vetoing an appropriation to help drought-stricken counties in Texas

"We must not permit our respect for the dead or our sympathy for the living to lead us into an act of injustice to the balance of the living. I will not attempt to prove that Congress has no power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Every member upon this floor knows it. We have the right as individuals to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of congress we have no right to appropriate a dollar of the public money." -- Davy Crockett

This statement made by Joseph Pulitzer accurately defines the current Mainstream Media

This is the agenda of the very Foul Leftist Heretics.

 I will repeat what I formerly stated on 9/10/12:
Under the founding of this great Limited Republic we have the unalienable right to practice a religion or to practice none. We have the right to say or do as we wish as long as we cause no harm to another individual or their property. The government cannot establish a state religion and neither can it deny an individual a right to practice their beliefs.

Stalin, Socialism, and Communism All Freedom, Life-crushing Evil Entities that destroy Unalienable Individual Rights.

It is sadly obvious in this 2018 November General Election that "the capacity of ordinary people to judge carefully and well” greatly failed in the votes cast for the Federal House members.

What Whole-Out Democracy Will Destructively Reap!

I truly love this truth poem by F. R. Duplantier!  LOL!

John Adams was absolutely correct, but sadly the likes of ANTIFA (Anti-First Amendment) Mental Amoeba Terrorists do not uphold or support the non-molesting higher principles.

This quote truly applies to the present day Screaming Socialist-Leftist Democrats.

There is no conceit in Ruth Bader Ginsberg'sfamily, because she obviously and most definitely got it all. Whoa!

This truly is a very wise and excellent quote from the late Sir John Harrington.

"A lady asked Dr. Franklin Well Doctor what have we got a republic or a monarchy. A republic, replied the Doctor if you can keep it.”

I have always loved this statement from Pogo.

ANTIFA is today one of the despicable "self-appointed group of vigilantes imposing their views on others.”

Mary, MI

ANTIFA — Can you hear me now??

Mary, MI

LOL!  Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) was not considered a great American humorist for nothing.

Mary, MI

The idea of silencing people by force is how the pathetically sick and disgusting cowardly Mental Amoeba ANTIFA Mobs think.

Mary, MI

Today Lord Acton would add the wish to be free from the Fascist Mob known as ANTIFA!

Justice Louis Brandeis warning has sadly and fully come into fruition.

Excellent and wise quote from Hannah Arendt, who had escaped Hitler's Totalitarian Regime.

Whether Bill Clinton likes it or not, you can most definitely  Love Your Country, but full out hate and despise the Unscrupulous, parasitic government Despots violating everyone's Unalienable Rights and Constitutional protections. 

Mary, MI

Justice Clarence Thomas is absolutely correct.
It's just sickening that the government bureaucrats do not follow these very wise words.

Mary, MI

Frederic Bastiat, always stated astute and very wise thoughtful heartfelt wisdom.  Something that is far to extremely lacking in far too many who Serve Us Up in D.C., and in many of the various State legislators.
