Quote Of The Day — July 14, 2015

.
While our country remains untainted with the principles and manners which are now producing desolation in so many parts of the world; while she continues sincere, and incapable of insidious and impious policy, we shall have the strongest reason to rejoice our local destination. But should the people of America once become capable of that deep simulation towards one another, and towards foreign nations, which assumes the language of justice and moderation, while it is practising iniquity and extravagance, and displays in the most captivating manner the charming pictures of candour, frankness, and sincerity, while it is rioting in rapine and insolence, this country will be the most miserable habitation in the world.”

John Adams, Thoughts On Government Applicable To The Present State Of The American Colonies.: Philadelphia, Printed By John Dunlap, M,Dcc,Lxxxvi

    >>>”We’ve got a lot of work to do economically in this country to bring about a more just and fair economy.”

    ~Said Barack Obama before leaving Martha’s Vineyard and hopping back on his extravagant jet to get back to the work of transferring wealth from those who earned it to those who didn’t.

    The Founders knew what our dangers were all along, and they tried their best to warn us. That’s why the Left has made sure we don’t study them in school.
