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.

Democrats have already caved

President Bush and congressional leaders began negotiating a second war funding bill yesterday, with Democrats offering the first major concession: an agreement to drop their demand for a timeline to bring troops home from Iraq.

Democrats backed off after the House failed, on a vote of 222 to 203, to override the president's veto of a $124 billion measure that would have required U.S. forces to begin withdrawing as early as July. But party leaders made it clear that the next bill will have to include language that influences war policy. Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (Nev.) outlined a second measure that would step up Iraqi accountability, "transition" the U.S. military role and show "a reasonable way to end this war."

Excuse me... a reasonable way to end this war? BS. Lies. How on earth does any of this END THE WAR? This is all about prolonging the war, as long as possible, so as much money as possible can be made by those making the money. While we keep pouring lives and tax dollars into it and Iraqi civilians keep dying.

Blood money, that's what you are wagering. All wagers now are blood money. Thank God I am no longer a Democrat. I could never be part of any of this horrific process.

The Democrats are already caving on the timeline for withdrawal that was already weak - at best. So impressive, this showing of strength from the political majority. For some reason, I can't seem to get Neville Chamberlain out of my mind. For those of you who don't know who Neville Chamberlain is... look it up.

"We made our position clear. He made his position clear. Now it is time for us to try to work together," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) said after a White House meeting. "But make no mistake: Democrats are committed to ending this war."

Yeah, right. In whose lifetime? Doesn't really matter - the bees are dying - we're toast anyway.

So who shall we vote for next?

Obviously not Republicans... not that there aren't a lot of great and noble Republicans out there, but their party has been commandeered by looters, sociopath corporations and wackos. Obviously not Democrats... they are political panderers and cowards.

Any ideas? New party, anyone?
