Unbelievable Fuckwads (Part Two)  

Sunday, February 20, 2005

An interesting comment came up recently to my first rant as RWR ... This nitwit actually said that the President sounds like he uses "words he doesn't understand" in his speches and implied that there could be no way W's vision for America could possibly be consistent with that of the founders. Well, here's what I have to say about THAT:

We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it. ... Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! - Patrick Henry

How's that one for a start, Jeremy?

Oh, and you should take a little trip around the States and hear how most of America talks before you insult the typical midwestern American accent. Just about everyone in the central part of the country speaks with basically the same accent as the President, with some variation, of course.

While we're dealing in personal insults, Jeremy, how about the look on your face in that picture of yours? Nothing too personal, but you look like a complete asshole. And I read your post from November. Interesting how you managed to say absolutely NOTHING in the four paragraphs you so toiled over.

Anyway, there's plenty out there to show the founders' vision. Patrick Henry above ... and how about this blurb from Thomas Jefferson?

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Or perhaps you'd like to hear from Madison and Monroe?? Maybe John Jay??

I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations. - James Madison

The best form of government is that which is most likely to prevent the greatest sum of evil. - James Monroe

No power on earth has a right to take our property from us without our consent. - John Jay

Thanks to these founders, you may now offer the President Kudos because in working to dismantle what socialism he can while fighting the War on Terror, the president is SIMULTANEOUSLY preventing evil from infecting America in two vastly different, yet equally important ways (Socialism AND Terrorism). That, sir, is the mark of an excellent President. Electing the alternative would have resulted in MORE socialism and plenty of the same kind of appeasement of terrorists we had with both the Carter and Clinton administrations.

Do you like Benjamin Franklin?

All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.

All who think cannot but see there is a sanction like that of religion which binds us in partnership in the serious work of the world.

Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

How about a little Thomas Paine while we're at it?

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.

In case you hadn't noticed, Jeremy, socialism ALWAYS occurs at the EXPENSE of freedom, and the terrorists are trying to impose that and more on us. Maybe a little more Franklin to point you in the right direction ....

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.

Sounds like pretty good advice to me, Jeremy. Maybe you should consider it??
