    Thoughts by our founder

    on the Supreme Court's voiding of the 'takings' clause:

    "The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence." --John Adams





    "Only an elitist who lives in a cocoon could survey the decline of morality over the past four decades (and the corresponding rise of social angst), and say the Great Divorce that the Supreme Court presided over -- the separation of faith from our public life -- has served us well." --Don Feder



    "One of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our Founding Fathers used in the great struggle for independence." --Charles Beard

    Yup.

    I have recently become a big fan of John Adams. The David McCullough biography is great, and since it was printed many of John Adams' works have been reprinted. I have several of his writings on my list of "to reads".

    I also think the last paragraph deserves some attention. As people who mess with guns we keep a low profile.

    Low profile it is FortyFive - as it does seem that anyone who talks about Founding Fathers, the BOR and Constitution to excess - get's ''labelled'' - sad to say.

    There are some great quotes out there - that have become extremely relevant these days.
