“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Pushing Small Vehicles in an SUV

The Politico reveals still more eco-hypocrisy from the Left. This time it’s John Edwards who tells average Americans they need to sacrifice their gas-hungry SUVs, then leaves to climb into his Cadillac SRX Crossover which gets 15 MPG.
