Samuel Adams Confronts Hillary, Barack

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams, speech at the Philadelphia State House, August 1, 1776.

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, please "go home from us in peace." We're tired of you and your vision of the a once-free people's dependence on government.

You can't have a free society when government moves in to pick you up every time you fall. No how, no way. When individuals make bad choices, such as buying a house they can't afford, they must endure the consequences of poor decisions. In contrast, people who make good decisions should be rewarded -- as they are now.

Those views are something Hillary and Barack seem not to understand. Good economic decisions create wealth -- and jobs. Bad economic decisions do the opposite.
