    “The fact of the matter is that you raise those taxes, and see what you’re going to get. You let them go up, like the Democrats [want to] let them go up, and we’ll more quickly become a second-rate nation.” Sen. Orin Hatch

    I saw this quote the other day and it really struck me, in that this nation still has dreamers, and doer's as can be seen in the two video's. We are still reaching out in science, space, technology, and many other area's where many dare not go. However, in my humble opinion so many have been caught up in the spirit of what we CAN'T DO, I thougt it time just to stop for a moment and think that we still CAN DO. and perhaps in so doing, remember that this nation did not get where it is after over 200 year's by giving up, we solved the big problems that needed solving and continued.
