"The things that will destroy America are
prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price,
safety-first instead of duty-first,
the love of soft living,
and the get-rich-quick theory of life."
by:
Theodore Roosevelt
(1858-1919) 26th US President

    He was dead on target, with this being an election year, 2008, just look at all that's been said about "free health care", etc. in politicains speeches, yet the borders are unsecure, and gambling debt is sky high among other things.

    I wonder if any of our politicains, especialy our current Commander in Chief (2010), ever crack open a book and brush up on their political history. This would be a good place to start. At least that's the way I see it.
