“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

Congresswoman Herseth Sandlin: Congress Should Stay at Work (Are You Listening, Senator Obama?)

According to KOTA, even Democrat Congresswoman Stephanie Herseth Sandlin believes congress should stay at work during the current financial crisis.

Morality…When it Suits Me

Voices Carry points out the interesting and rather funny change in tune from the “can’t legislate morality” Leftists in the face of the financial meltdown the United States is staring in the face.

Al Gore Calls for Civil Disobedience to Promote Environmental Worship

You know, for civil disobedience to be warranted, there usually needs to be some compelling moral priority or injustice that’s being ignored.
