“The principle of the Constitution is that of a separation of legislative, Executive and Judiciary functions, except in cases specified. If this principle be not expressed in direct terms, it is clearly the spirit of the Constitution, and it ought to be so commented and acted on by every friend of free government.” –Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, 1797
Did you VOTE on Tuesday? Thank you.
A key phrase in the quote from Thomas Jefferson is “every friend of free government.” I submit that we do not have many friends of free government in the current administration, and Obama(THHO) is certainly included.
I get quotes like the one above from a wonderful little email newsletter (free, but with a lot of advertising) called The Patriot Post. Go here if you would like to subscribe; it’s very good reading. The newsletter usually expounds on the topics of the day, and include several quotes from contemporary sources also.
I am not compensated for the previous paragraph, I’m just letting you know where to go if you wonder where I stand on something.
Remember that one time when “Elections have consequences” was spoken by the then-president elect, and the conservatives of this country were beaten with it for a while? Remember when the newly minted Speaker of the House changed the rules so his party with a simple majority could ram things through without the “other side” – for example, the Affordable Healthcare Act? Remember when it was called a “Mandate of the People” when the current administration was voted in? Yeah, good times.
The left doesn’t remember any of that. In fact, they’ve done nothing but whine, cry, and deflect blame ever since it became clear that “their side” pretty much lost the election BECAUSE of Obama(THHO). Oh, and carry on like they can force every thing through in the next two months …
One leftist “representative” even called for civil war, with the illegal immigrants taking on the law-abiding citizens of this country. Yeah, declare war against a group that is pro-gun, while you are patently anti-gun. Good call. Let me know how that works out for you.
Chat ya later…
Thanks for stopping by, In GOD We Trust, and Wear Red on Fridays!
