The Future

"The image of the future of this country is in the books, in the great prophecies of the twentieth century, that did not come from our pseudo-Christian leaders but came from the pen of Orwell and Huxley, and came from the filmic talent of Ridley Scott in "Bladerunner," that is the future. It is the totalitarian future, it is a future that works, it is a future that is efficient, it is a future in finally which our welfare, health and education problems will be solved, not by persuasion but by that gentle tyranny that is provided today to the one-child policy in China which Planned Parenthood supports, in which women are forced to abort the unwanted, the unwanted children which they themselves wish to bear. That is the future.

The future, the future of this country, is a geneticists, is a geneticists plaything, and is a nightmare to those who have any conception however vague or remote, however vague and distant, of ideas which once rang in our republic, of freedom, and dignity, and equal rights before the law; due process, and representation before the court system." -Frank Schaeffer, 1992

Today in History

"On this day in 1777 the Continental Congress approved the Articles of Confederation after 16 months of debate. Although much maligned by modern historians, the Articles were in many ways
superior to the constitution that succeeded them. They certainly did a better job of preserving the rights and sovereignty of the states, but the economic stagnation spawned by the states' issuing paper monies, and the tariffs they wanted to impose on intrastate commerce, stalled American development & prosperity." -Franklin Sanders

The Elections of 2006

I am delighted that the Republicans have finally lost power. I am however, very saddened that the Democrats have won control of Congress.

The Republicans have been an embarrassment to this nation and the world. They have spent this country deeply into debt. They have not been a check on President Bush who is a dictator and a scofflaw. Republicans have greatly increased the size, power, and scope of the federal government.

They were elected in 1994 to reduce the size of government. They have not done so. Shame on the Republicans.

The Democrats will be no better. They will continue to promote envy and coveteousness. They will steal from one class of people and redistribute it, first to themselves and finally to their constituencies.

Both political parties in this country are corrupt. Unfortunately they merely reflect the values of the people of this country who are just as corrupt and immoral.
