If even a wino like Paine knew this, why not a sober government we are supposed to have today-or are they just too drunk with power now.

Drunk with power is right and the stench of arrogance is plain to the olfactory sense as well. It is the coal these power drunken egoists wish they could snuff out but it can never be as the urge to be free strengthens when the ignorant slave realizes that's exactly what he is, a slave.

Our Czarist government is doing it's utmost to put a fire hose to the flames of Liberty. If we sit and do nothing about it, there will be no where left on the planet to be free in any way. The American Patriot is the last hope for our world.

Obama and the Pelosi gang are doing there damndest to douse the fires of liberty and they have to be stopped now.

Don't stop writing and calling to put a stop to these freedom robbing ideas that these thieves are proposing, please! If we allow this government to steal from us, do you think life will have any value? Be heard. Make a loud noise! Those who would steal your liberty are manning banks of telephones as I write. Gotta go, the FAX has stopped. Call, email, FAX...and vote them gone!
