Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well wisher to his posterity, swear by the blood of the Revolution, never to violate in the least particular, the laws of the country; and never to tolerate their violation by others.

As the patriots of seventy-six did to the support of the Declaration of Independence, so to the support of the Constitution and Laws, let every American pledge his life, his property, and his sacred honor; let every man remember that to violate the law, is to trample on the blood of his father, and to tear the charter of his own, and his children's liberty.

Let reverence for the laws, be breathed by every American mother, to the lisping babe, that prattles on her lap; let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in Primers, spelling books, and in Almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation; and Let the old and the young, the rich and the poor, the grave and the gay, of all sexes and tongues, and colors and conditions, sacrifice unceasingly upon its altars.

While ever a state of feeling, such as this, shall universally, or even, very generally prevail throughout the nation, vain will be every effort, and fruitless every attempt, to subvert our national freedom.

All Hail to the all-electric Tesla Roadster!

As I mentioned in my last post, its time for American consumers to set ourselves free from oil industry gouging once and for all.

Here is the story of Tesla Motors - as it appeared in the 2007 'Green Issue' of Vanity Fair.

The new, high end Tesla Roadster sells for $92,000 (this year's model is already sold out, but you can get on the waiting list for 2008;) can surge from 0 to 60 in four seconds, and may well prove the death knell for the internal-combustion engine.

Tired of emptying your wallet to buy gas? If the Tesla takes off - and it already is drawing huge interest - the next step will be "to ride the technology curve down to a more affordable, $49,000 four-door sedan, then a $30,000 mass-market model."
