    Reminds me of a poem by an unknown author I read a while ago: He is true to God who‘se true to man; Whatever wrong is done To the humblest and the weakest ‘Neath the all-beholding sun, That wrong is also done to us. And they are slaves most base Whose love of right is for themselves And not for all the race.

    Glad that I am not the only one seeing the writing on the wall.....the 2000 election Al Gore - George W. Bush put things in motion....because I experienced this hostility from those who claim to be morally superior and tolerant aka liberal progressive I am in a position to say that America is at the cross-road from defender of liberty to supporter of tyranny......

    Ginsberg, Hagel and Sotomeyor are partisans and constructionists.

    That should read: "The verdict on freedom is out. Half of the world is looking at us", he said. "They are watching. They‘re waiting. And what do they see? They see a civil discourse that‘s hostile, fractious. Not based on neutral principle, tolerant discussion." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What they see is a Nation that desires to render onto Caesar, what our Founding Fathers recognized belongs to God, a Nation, that denies the Sanctity of human life, and the Sanctity of marriage and the family as God intended. It is no mystery that the mystery passage is unconstitutional because it denies both the spirit of our Constitution, and The Spirit of The Law. Our Founding Fathers, recognized that it Is God, not Caesar, or King John, Who Has Endowed us with our unalienable Rights from the moment of our creation, when we are brought into being, at our conception; that moment when we were created in The Image and Likeness of God, equal in Dignity, while being complementary as a beloved son or daughter. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Which is why The Treaty of Paris, serves in the Name of The Most Holy And Undivided Blessed Trinity, not in the name of Caesar or King John.
