If you misrepresent what’s in the plan, we will call you out.–BHO
Now, contrast this with the Fourth President, James Madison, who had written in Federalist #62 (Federalism, Mr. Obama: do you speak it?), emphasis mine:
It will be of little avail to the people,
that the laws are made by men of their own choice,
if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read,
or so incoherent that they cannot be understood;
if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated,
or undergo such incessant changes that no man,
who knows what the law is to-day,
can guess what it will be to-morrow.
Law is defined to be a rule of action;
but how can that be a rule,
which is little known,
and less fixed?
Quite a difference isn’t there. And not just between Obama and Madison, but between MOST of our “representatives” and the Founding Fathers.
The founders had brilliance and wisdom, but they also had common sense, and a respect for the PEOPLE. Those qualities are tough to find in our current leaders. More later, off to work right now.
