Liberalism has become a philosophy of Western suicide

A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.
Thomas Jefferson

The nicest thing I can say about liberals is that they never grew up. They live in never-never land and see the government as a fairy godmother that provides for all.

Whatever else distinguishes JFK's “New Frontier” or LBJ's “Great Society” from Barack Obama's "New Foundation," this too is an era of soaring rhetoric, big plans and boundless self-regard, from an administration convinced it can apply technocratic, top-down solutions to huge and unpredictable systems -- the banking, auto and health-care industries, for instance, or the climate. These are people deeply impressed by their own smarts, the ones for whom the phrase "the best and the brightest" has been scrubbed of its intended irony.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, undertaken by liberals, has ever advanced civilization or improved the lot of those to whom the largesse was intended.

If I were cynical, I would believe the goal of the current administration is to “bankrupt” the Treasury, to make us into a second-rate country like other socialistic countries - a weak country that would never embarrass the progressives sense of equality.

One of the prices of freedom is the toleration of imperfections. If everything that is wrong with the world becomes a reason to turn more power over to government, then freedom is going to erode away, while we are mindlessly repeating the catchwords of the hour, whether "change," "universal health care" or "social justice."

What we believe:

We believe in free markets and free men.

We believe that the only legitimate purposes of a federal government are to:
- Protect us from threats within and outside of our borders.
- Maintain a stable currency.

- We believe there is good and evil.
- We believe that free people do not war with free people.
- We believe that the promotion of democracy in other countries protects us from external threats.
