Hmmm...

 

John, well, how about grief? Would this be an exception to the above?

John,

 

That's a great quote.

 

Paul, you're right about the government giving people grief.

 

Laura K

Government cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of it.

your turn Paul.....Laura

Good Quote Shea.......

brings up the fact that the founding fathers formed a republic

"I pledge ALLEGIANCE to the flag, and to the REPUBLIC for

which it stands........we have been coerced into thinking we

are a democracy.....I am not sure what we are but if one

wants to look into the difference between Republic and Democracy......

google will give you many sites to choose from.......

Wow! This is exactly the reason my husband and I are moving to Costa Rica! It is so nice to hear others saying it out loud! Those quotes are great!! We realize no country is perfect but what is going on in the US...we are sick. I wonder if we will ever see a true Republic in the world ever again?

Have a great weekend everyone...Costa Rica here we come!
