Found these great facts on Democracy Is Not Freedom – Look at what some of current day politicians say compared to what our Founding Fathers said:
WHAT POLITICIANS SAY Now . . .
â€œDemocracy is … the only path to national success and dignity.â€ â€”George W. Bush
â€œWe must revitalize our democracy.â€ â€”Bill Clinton
â€œThe world must be made safe for democracy.â€
WHAT THE FOUNDERS SAID Then . . .
â€œDemocracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.Â Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.â€ â€”Ben Franklin
â€œThe democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.â€
â€œDemocracy … wastes, exhausts, and murders itself.Â There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.â€
â€œDemocracy is the most vile form of government… democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention… incompatible with personal security or the rights of property.â€
â€œThe majority, oppressing an individual, is guilty of a crime, abuses its strength, and … breaks up the foundations of society.â€

Sitting here watching the news and it looks like everyone is lining up for a bailout with taxpayer money.
We have school boards that misappropriate millions of dollars in school budgets, auto makers who cannot forecast properly the types of vehicles Americans would purchase, and now we have states who cannot balance their budgets and looking for tax payer money.
America is going bankrupt under the leadership of overpaid fat cats who don’t seem to have any wisdom or common sense. The bottom line for most financial issues that plague national, state, and local economies is to cut spending. Nearly every small business owner understands this. You can’t spend more money than you take in.
What are your thoughts? Are overpaid fat cats killing America? What do you think the future of America is with our inability to reduce national debt, state debt, and local debt?

Fact: China holds more than $502 billion in U.S. treasuries. – How scary is that?
Where has sound leadership gone? What would our founding fathers think or say if they could see the state of our national economy?
