From Mostly Cajun, read the whole thing, its worth it:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,…

I’m tired! Call a spade a spade. Show there’s a difference. Most of America is tired of one rule for all of us, another rule for them. do you think the IRS would have been as congenial with a tax error with ol’ Joe Schmucj as they were with Obama’s pick for TREASURY secretary, Tim Geitner?

Public health care? I’d think very well of “public health facilities” if the public health facility I used was the congressional wing of Walter Reid.
I am an American. I do not ASK for privilege. I was born to my OWN “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” And I do not do “classes”. I expect to work for me and mine, and I expect others to do the same for theirs. I will extend a hand to the unfortunate, but not the lazy.
And I am keeping close eye, as Claire Wolfe says, because “America is at that awkward stage. It’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.”
And it may be later than we think."
