And the Immigration column is appropriate all across the country; particularly in Arizona and Texas right now…

 July 4 Done Proper


Eleven score and twelve years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that politicians must be kept on a constitutional leash.

Yet now we’re engaged in that ancient battle of politicians against their own citizens.  It’s been exactly a year since our property tax protest made national news.  Now sales taxes are up, property taxes are up, spending is up, debts are out of control…what have we accomplished with the protests last year?  What did our founders accomplish with their blood, sweat and tears?  Certainly, King George never taxed Americans a fraction of today’s load.

It is time to turn up the wick and make this July 4 something even more memorable than the last.

We are not interested in just tax policy any more – even eliminating property tax isn’t enough.  We are not going to merely remove a few entrenched politicians. 

No, we intend nothing less than to govern our government by proven, written standards.  It is time to demand that all of our politicians obey the laws that protect us from them.  It is time for the full restoration of the contracts and freedoms that made this nation great.

We will demand that our politicians obey constitutions as written.  No “interpretations,” no ifs, ands or buts.

In other words, we resolve that our heroic, patriotic dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.
