    Yikes! Looks like the guy that works the milkshake machine at the Little Rock Dairy Queen beat her out too! (though he is pretty popular…especially in the Summer)

    Andrews Blog Quote of the Day:

    “The trend should be obvious to anyone who looks for it. The state has slowly been taking away more and more of our autonomy, deciding we do not know how to handle our own affairs, that we need the benevolent control of the state to live “properly”. Which leads me to ask one question. If you support this trend, if you think the state is a tool for good, then answer one question: are you capable of making decisions for yourself? If so, then why do you assume no one else is?”

    Lots of safe Dem seats in 2012. I think our best chances are Reid, Bennet (CO), Lincoln, the Delaware seat, Dodd. Most Dems up for reelection are from solid blue states. It would be nice to see Bob Bennett (UT) lose out at the state convention or be “primaried.:

    Here is a film I would pay good money to see:

    “The documentary film I Want Your Money, due out next summer by RG Entertainment (co-written by yours truly), will expose the high cost in lost freedom and in lost opportunity to support a Leviathan-like bureaucratic state. The film will contrast the two paths the United States can take using the words and actions of Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan. It will also examine some of the major failed policies of the Far Left going back to the Great Depression and the Great Society and how Obama and the Congressional Democrats are simply trying to repackage and sell these stale, long discredited big government policies to the American people all over again. California will be offered as a case study of what can happen to the United States if we continue down our current path.

    Finally, I Want Your Money will be a call to action to anyone who cares about the future of the United States. Starting with the Congressional elections of 2010, the restoration of our country can and must begin. To borrow a sentiment expressed by Thomas Paine in American Crisis, let it be said of this generation, that people of good sense, alarmed at a common danger to the nation, came forth in time to save it. “

    Dems need to remember that free men will die for freedom.

    consider the american revolution. The founders were for the most part gentry, some landed, with large families, stable income, and everything to lose by rocking the boat.

    And keep in mind this was not modern times. They were ruled by a powerful monarch who could have them tortured and killed, and families dispersed and exiled penniless, without a second thought.

    And they put it all at risk, and fought for years through the most hopeless winters of despair against the most powerful and feared army in the world.

    For what?

    Abstract freedom.

    Not to be free of slavery. Not to be free of chains. not for money and wealth and power.

    But to be free of the many small impositions of an intrusive State.

    Freedom of the soul.

    Freedom to chart their own course in the world.

    Freedom to build, to destroy, to take chances, to make choices that might be wrong, to explore, to live as free men.

    They pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, for an abstract idea, and fought with all their might until they won.

    They put up as stakes their lives and their families lives, for abstract and conceptual freedom of the soul.

    Death was better than the loss of the freedom.

    That spirit still lives in America.

    It is America.

    Lots of safe Dem seats in 2012. — BC

    There might be a few seats like that. But since August the political dynamics have changed. Used to be everybody got mad, then slipped back into a coma. Why because there was nobody there to remind them when it came time to vote. The Teas could be reminding everybody before the election just why they should be against some SOB. They have those list of names and they will use them. I hazard those that walked down Pennsylvania Ave, all 1 million of them, will be willing to walk their own neighborhoods for the defeat of an incumbent.

    If you’re a CongressCritter in a purple district, bye, other careers beckon. If you live in Quincy an voted for the HC bill, plan a long vacation, you are getting it. Even some urban strongholds are going to go wobbly.

    aureliusx…EXCELLENT!!

    and when you juxtapose these two sections from your comment it just gets more amazing:

    consider the american revolution. The founders were for the most part gentry, some landed, with large families, stable income, and everything to lose by rocking the boat.

    -and-

    They pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, for an abstract idea, and fought with all their might until they won.
