Work harder? Or is it futile?

Posted December 21st, 2009 by Jim Ettwein

So, the socialization of American is nearly complete. Bribes. Midnight sessions. Closed doors. Is this the change that was promised us?

The question of the day, then, fellow conservatives, is: Do we redouble our efforts? Or do we just go along?

Perhaps these thoughts will offer some direction…
“You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.” — Margaret Thatcher
I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue. — Barry Goldwater
“Never, never, never give up.” –Winston Churchill
“Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” — Winston Churchill
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. — Edmund Burke
“The America Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.” — Alexis de Tocqueville
I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer. — Ben Franklin
I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man. — Thomas Jefferson
Compassion is defined not by how many people are on the government dole but by how many people no longer need government assistance. — Rush Limbaugh
If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace. — Tom Paine

    “I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command I will never surrender my men while they still have the means to resist!” I adopted this code as my own in 1961. I’m not backing down now!

    Surrender of my principles will never be an issue. The following says it all:

    “The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.”
    Samuel Adams
