The Founders Warned Us About Some One Some Time...Could Be Right About Now.

"The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.
It serves always to distract the public councils and feeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions.
It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration to confine themselves with in their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism.
If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."

FLAHR in, the name of a gold coin first made in Florence in the 1200's. The name comes from the Latin word for flower. The florin bore the imprint of a lily on one side, and the figure of Saint John the Baptist on the other side. The first English florin was issued as a six-shilling gold coin in the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). A Silver English florin worth two shillings was first coined in 1849.
[The World Book Encyclopedia]
A USA Silver ten cent coin, bore the imprint of a lily on one side, and the figure of Franklin D. Roosevelt (USA Pres. 1933-1945) on the other side (Dime).

The New York Times Said On July 4th There Is A Down Side To Liberty. 40 Years Ago They Said GOD Was Dead Too.

In the 1970's The NYT told us that GOD was dead.
Elton John said they said it in a song.
On July 4th the day remembered for the Independence Day set by the Founders of A Country that was bled for by People who were not to keen on having a Dictator, a King, taking what they worked for with blood sweat and tears - at the point of a GUN; fought for their LIBERTY. On they road for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, so the next generation could establish a map for excellence, always given the next generation the unselfish inheritance of LIBERTY.
This protected Press by Liberty has on this 4th of July - Independence Day, has said that there is in the opinion of the writer - A DOWN SIDE TO LIBERTY!
Socialism is a mechanism used by Tyrants and Dictators to take what good mankind has accomplished from the Idea that if it is worthwhile to do for a reward then it will inspire some to buy and use for the well being of their fellow man.  The Tyrants/Dictators Tax the workers and spread that around to their fellow man - all the while the Tyrants/Dictators have Offshore Bank Accounts and Shell Companies in other Countries friendly to Capitalism, that fatten their own Bank Accounts, with not any self conscious guilt for the inhumane conditions they impose on the people, they Rule Over.
This is what is to be expected from a Tyrannical Government inhabited by those who don't believe, that the Founders Idea of a Government of The People, By The People, For The People, who have it in a contract with Government that the People are to be Governed by the consent of the People,  complain that the Constitution is a limitation on the Government.  Dahhhhh - Hello!

If the MFM wasn't subsidized by the democrats they'd already be gone. They can't pay the bills.
Just like Air America.
