What would our Founding Fathers think?

“I place economy among the first and most important of republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared. We must make our choice between frugality and liberty, or excessive spending and servitude. If the debt should be swelled to a formidable size, its entire discharge will be despaired of and … Continue reading

101st Airborne in Congress.

“They’ve got us surrounded — the poor bastards!” Those words are attributed to a member of the 101st Airborne during World War II when they were surrounded by the Germans at Bastogne.  For months, when resistance seemed futile and surrender something many would understand, they held out against unspeakable odds.  But, the tenacity in which … Continue reading
