Quote of the day!

The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled,
public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be
tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be
curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work,
instead of living on "public assistance."

Cicero - 55 BC

Even then, what have we learned?

just from reading "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" [Gibbon}.

If anyone is interested in a similar, more modern-day essay, you should read Dick Lamm's short, 2004 speech on How to Destroy [the United States of] America. It's happening NOW.

Although Dick [former Governor of Colorado] was officially a Democrat, he was IMO the most conservative I have ever observed.

I like this one

"And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the Press, or the rights of Conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms;…" Samuel Adams
