Reader comments about this quote:
That would explain the smear campaigns of the left and the right against all things Constitutional. Thing is, patriots know the difference and adhere more strongly to their convictions. Time to clean house and Restore the Republic.

    The house cleaning mentioned by J Carlton is long over due. As to Obama, I think he needs another term, 20 years to life sounds about right.

    That is why Ron Paul is simply ignored -- if the press challenge any of his ideas, those ideas will gain more traction.

    The undercurrent, battling over economic modules, Ron Paul, Cato, FEE, JHU, Misses vs Harvard, Oxford, Stanford, and the like are in the room. Not much chatter on the wire, But a mention from time to time builds momentum. Clean house and Drain the Swamp. Don't forget the ring around the tub ! Very good point E Archer, NYC.

    Attacks on the laws of nature and of nature's God, individual sovereign's inalienable rights, prosperity, the nobility of man, freedom, liberty, justice for all - along with the credibility of all such absolutes (and the opinions of administration there related) is most accurately a distinguishing trait, quality, and property of despots, malefactors and traitors - inclusive of their stringent censorship.

    In this day, a contention the verity of which is being starkly exemplified by the arrant intolerance of perspectives that differ from their own of the State idolizing latter day Pharisees of the Left and their fellow travelers.
