Letter: No longer silent about loss of liberty

To the Editor:

When Dick Morris wrote that Congress has "an evolved form of slavery in mind" it hit me like a ton of bricks.

This is because I had just read this quote from Lincoln:


"We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men's labor..."

-- Abraham Lincoln, April 18, 1864, Baltimore, MD (Address at a Sanitary Fair)

Is there any doubt which of these two meanings of liberty is adhered to by Soros and the Left? It is up to us to maintain our liberties in our good old USA.

It wasn't long ago that Bill Clinton said, "The days of big government are over."

Sorry, Bill, but they are back! Plus, it is projected that because of the immense debt we now have, in a few short years the U.S. Treasury notes will be in junk bond status.

No matter what your political leanings, please write your representatives and tell them how you feel about what they are doing to our country. As for me, I'm done being a silent about our loss of liberty.

How about you?
