Quote Of The Day — November 21, 2015

. “Another not unimportant consideration is, that the powers of the general government will be, and indeed must be, principally employed upon external objects, such as war, peace, negotiations with foreign powers, and foreign commerce. In its internal operations it can touch but few objects, except to introduce regulations beneficial to the commerce, intercourse, and other relations, between the states, and to lay taxes for the common good. The powers of the states, on the other hand, extend to all objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, and liberties, and property of the people, and the … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — October 29, 2015

. “Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of.” James Madison,  Federalist No. 46, 1788   ~ ~   Grouchy   ~ ~

All of a Sudden SCOTUS Concerned About States’ Rights

Well, until recently we’ve all felt pretty helpless. Then, it seems something happened – as if a light came on or a voice from above exclaimed, “You know… you don’t have to take it.

Wild Bill: State Courage

  Kansas is showing no fear and leading the way in standing against the Washington DC bullies who threaten freedom! MOLON LABE – “Come and Take them” The phrase was reportedly the defiant response of King Leonidas I of Sparta to Xerxes I of Persia when Xerxes demanded that the Greeks lay down their arms and surrender. This was at the onset of the Battle of Thermopylae (480 BC). Instead, the Spartans held Thermopylae for three days.

Most importantly, this delayed the Persians’ progress to Athens, providing sufficient time for the city’s evacuation to the … Continue reading
