Thought of the day.....

James Madison is one of my heroes. His thinking and capabilities are, in my opinion, one of the reasons that the nation was able to weather storms and perform so well over many many decades. The founding principles of the nation worked and it appears to me that socialism, no matter what one wants to call it, justice, altruism, blatant corporatism, etc. is doomed to fail. As George Will so wrote this week is both precise and beautiful....
When Ryan said in Norfolk, “We won’t replace our Founding principles, we will reapply them,” he effectively challenged Obama to say what Obama believes, which is: Madison was an extremist in enunciating the principles of limited government — the enumeration and separation of powers. And Jefferson was an extremist in asserting that government exists not to grant rights but to “secure” natural rights that pre-exist government.
But the line that I liked the most about about today's president...
underscores what the president has become — silly and small.
is both true and sad as we see a man, elected not due to his capabilities but due to his abilities to give a speech and probably due to the color of his skin, flail about helplessly. The current president of the United States is an embarrassment, never deserved to be President and I hope that the nation recognizes his shortcomings and failings and elects those that can actually lead the nation and restore it to not only its former greatness but restore what made it great.
