  • Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

    Ronald Reagan

    When the government's boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence.

    The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money

    Alexis de Tocqueville

    Those of us who manage the public dollars will be held to account to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and our government.

    Barack Hussein Obama, 1/20/09

    My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it.

    Barack Hussein Obama

Election Laws Be Damned!

Despite that US election laws forbid foreign campaign donations, as well as the fact that the Obama campaign is currently under investigation for accepting such donations, the pleas to foreigners outside of the US continue.

Here is one such plea:

“Howard — The next 6 days are going to be the toughest we’ve seen, and I need your support to reach as many voters as possible. Donate $5 or more today to strengthen this movement for the final push. This campaign is in your hands. Thank you for everything you’re doing – Barack”

If Obama is incapable of running a clean campaign, how much confidence should the electorate have for him to run a clean administration? I know, rhetorical question, and one that I hope we won’t have to ask.
