Quote For Today

Samuel Johnson stated:
“It is the quality of patriotism to be jealous and watchful, to observe all secret machinations, and to see publick dangers at a distance. The true lover of his country is ready to communicate his fears, and to sound the alarm, whenever he perceives the approach of mischief. But he sounds no alarm, when there is no enemy; he never terrifies his countrymen till he is terrified himself. The patriotism, therefore, may be justly doubted of him, who professes to be disturbed by incredibilities…”

The tenth amendment was ratified in 1791. Has anyone in the administration read it? Michell Malkin provides evidence that the new administration is on the road to hell to limit individual freedom by squashing state and local rights.
