OK, there is one moral outcry. Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin would not only disagree with the quote he would probably say something to the effect (-; in private of course ;-) I would rather be a lying Keynesian socialist, holding the office of president, so that I might bring about maximum destruction upon a once land of the free and home of the brave rather than being free at law.

    No one gets elected to high office without having to put on a big act for the masses. How else would a black (actually a mullato), gay, muslim, marxist be elected President of the USA? It just goes to show how little power the People really have. Chances are that if you are right, you are not a politician and have no chance of ever being one. ;-)

    Humility before honor, honor before fraud. Fail with honor rather than succeed through fraud.
