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.

Palin: Brutal

Warning: If you love wildlife, and especially wolves, this is very hard to watch.

I really hate to post such horrifying images. Truthfully: this breaks my heart.

But it must come out.

This woman... this potential president... endorses savagery towards defenseless wildlife. Lincoln once said, "I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being." Sarah Palin has a long way to go before achieving the level of 'whole human being;' are we to risk the chance that she might become the president of the United States?

Had McCain simply wanted to appease the religious right, he could have chosen Mike Huckabee. His choice of Palin was much more cynical; a direct, and sexist (assuming we don't care about issues) ploy to capture the female vote.

On behalf of Hailey - who cannot type - I am posting this upsetting video so that the word gets out. This is not an attack ad; this is truth. Horrible, brutal, subhuman truth.

I can't even imagine what McCain was thinking when he picked this woman to be his running mate. I can only assume that he wasn't thinking at all, or assumed that any 'woman' would suffice. This one is an abomination.

If I had planned on voting for McCain based on his past record (which he has recanted anyway,) I would shun him because of Palin.
