"That's the argument of flexibility and it goes something like this:
The Constitution is over 200 years old and societies change.
It has to change with society, like a living organism,
or it will become brittle and break.
But you would have to be an idiot to believe that.
The Constitution is not a living organism, it is a legal document.
It says something and doesn't say other things."

—Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia
"The basis of our political systems is the right of the
people to make and to alter their Constitutions of Government.
But the Constitution which at any time exists,
'till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole People
is sacredly obligatory upon all."
—George Washington

New Jersey Gov't Shutdown by Liberal Governor Seeking Tax Hikes

This is what happens when a
big tax and spend liberal meets
corrupt liberal democrats!

This is the epitome of inneptitude!

"New Jersey's pride and joy of a governor, Jon Corzine, told Jerseyites on Saturday that he decided to shutdown all but the most critical agencies of state government. He also laid-off about 46,000 workers after failing to get the legislature to approve a sales tax hike before a budget deadline expired on June 30. About 30,000 state employees will continue working, but without pay.

That's right, one of the richest politicians in the US is sending people to the unemployment line because he wasn't being allowed to raise taxes on a state that's running neck and neck with Louisiana when it comes to systemic corruption."

"The day of our nation's birth in that little hall in Philadelphia, [was] a day on which debate had raged for hours. The men gathered there were honorable men hard-pressed by a king who had flouted the very laws they were willing to obey. Even so, to sign the Declaration of Independence was such an irretrievable act that the walls resounded with the words 'treason, the gallows, the headsman's axe,' and the issue remained in doubt. [On that day] 56 men, a little band so unique we have never seen their like since, had pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. Some gave their lives in the war that followed, most gave their fortunes, and all preserved their sacred honor... In recent years, however, I've come to think of that day as more than just the birthday of a nation. It also commemorates the only true philosophical revolution in all history. Oh, there have been revolutions before and since ours. But those revolutions simply exchanged one set of rules for another. Ours was a revolution that changed the very concept of government. Let the Fourth of July always be a reminder that here in this land, for the first time, it was decided that man is born with certain God-given rights; that government is only a convenience created and managed by the people, with no powers of its own except those voluntarily granted to it by the people. We sometimes forget that great truth, and we never should." —Ronald Reagan

All the Treason that’s Fit to Print
With great power comes great irresponsibility.

"The most puzzling thing about the New York Times’s exposure of America’s counterterrorism secrets is that this Manhattan-based newspaper has no apparent sense of self-preservation. If the Times were headquartered in, say, Bismarck, North Dakota, its spectacular disregard for human safety might be explained by the low probability that terrorists ever would hit its community directly."
