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.

Gingrich calls the War on Terror 'phony'

Gingrich is up to something. Oh yes, he is definitely up to something.

Newt Gingrich is now publicly claiming that the War on Terra is 'phony.'

Come again?

Yes, Gingrich says its all a sham. "We’re about to enter the seventh year of this phony war...and we’re losing."

Yes - not only is the War on Terra phony... but we're losing.

Gingrich added, "None of you should believe we are winning this war. There is no evidence that we are winning this war."

What the hell has gotten into him?

In a speech to a group of 'young conservatives' in Washington, D.C. on Thursday:

Instead of the current strategy to fight terrorism, Gingrich said we should focus on energy independence. "We have to have a national energy strategy, which basically says to the Saudis, 'We’re not going to rely on you.'"

Gingrich also attacked the current administration and former Republican Congressional leadership in saying "We were in charge for six years...I don’t think you can look and say that was a great success."

Yes, his lips were moving. I don't have tape or a YouTube, but it does appear that there were witnesses.

What's with the sudden truthfulness? A desperate attempt to save a sinking GOP Titanic?
