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.

Senate passes bailout; both candidates support it

Ron Paul... are you still running for president?

According to most reports, an overwhelming majority of Americans are staunchly against this bailout, and do not trust that it will be handled responsibly. Some reports have indicated that incoming calls to the congressional switchboard were 100-1 against.

And yet it passed the Senate. And both candidates voted for it. Amazing.

See what a third party option would do for this nation? We obviously need a party for the 95% of us that aren't wealthy. (Like our senators.)

He said, We said:

President Bush, following the Senate vote, said the bill was central to the "financial security" of the nation. "The American people expect - and our economy demands - that the House pass this good bill this week and send it to my desk."

Snapshot of tonight's CNN poll, and what the American people really expect:

Should the Senate pass the $700 billion bailout package for the U.S. financial system?

Yes 28% 100829
No 51% 183300
Don't have enough info to decide 21% 75910

Total Votes: 360039
