"It is not my intention to do away with government. It is rather to make it work -- work with us, not over us; stand by our side, not ride on our back. Government can and must provide opportunity, not smother it; foster productivity, not stifle it."
Ronald Reagan

"Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberty.
Abraham Lincoln

“Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.”
John F. Kennedy

“When you have got an elephant by the hind leg, and he is trying to run away, it's best to let him run.”
Abraham Lincoln

“The best minds are not in government. If any were, business would hire them away.”
Ronald Reagan

“Don't expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong.”
Calvin Coolidge

Every once in a while it stings with such certainty, the feeling that everything is flipped upside down and turned inside out in America. I find it difficult to explain and hard to prove because there is so much arguable information in our hands to debate about with no conclusive end except for what one can only speculate. But there is an indisputably general feeling in this country that something is missing or that something good has gone away. I don’t believe Barack Obama is bringing us any closer to the elusive good that we seek and I don’t know if that “good” we seek will come any time soon. But getting him out of office brings America that much closer to its optimum potential. We need to bring ourselves back to our roots and remember how this country was conceived. We are the product of a revolutionary war against a global super power of the eighteenth century, which we had absolutely no chance of winning and, yet, we did. People of many different minds united for something they believed in and died for what we have today. Now, the American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights all seem to be fading away and evaporating out of our grasps.

People make this country great. Not Governments or their Administrations. Where problems surface there will always be useful solutions and where useful solutions thrive there will always be burdensome problems. Among all this turmoil is the American voice directing and redirecting the balance, not the Government.

2,020.3 miles to go.
