November 15, 1777...

After 16 MONTHS of debate, the Continental Congress approved the Articles of Confederation for ratification by the states. This would lay the groundwork for the Constitution. Among the guarantees in the Articles:

"Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated."

Now, think about Nancy Pelosi and this present Congress ramming through 2,000 pages of jibberish that not one single Congress critter has read in its final form - in the middle of the night and on a weekend.

Our Founding Fathers understood that it took time and debate before decisons could be made and laws passed. They rightly feared an all-powerful centralized government and took this responsibility seriously.

We should all be aware that if/when Obamacare passes, the Federal government will have the power to regulate EVERY aspect of your life. Why? Because EVERYTHING you eat, drink, breathe and do may have an impact on your health care needs today, or tomorrow. The government will regulate your life to control and minimize how much this monstrosity will cost. Do you really want some czar or bureaucrat telling you how to live your life?

This is not poltics. It is YOUR FREEDOM that is at stake.

There is a reason I have this Thomas Jefferson quote at the top of my blog. It is still 100% true 200 years later.

"I am for a government rigorously frugal and simple. Were we directed from Washington when to sow, when to reap, we should soon want bread."
