    Maybe being labeled a "progressive" isn't as good as they initially thought.

    My favorite is Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me pancakes."

    They have to choose something. 'Liberal' is a bad word. 'Progressive' will eventually be thrown into the garbage pile in place of something else.

    "If you like your doctor, you can keep him." -B.Hussein Obama.

    I realize Obama wasn't a Founding Father. He is the Founding Father of the Socialist States of America though.

    "Re-eligibility makes [the president] an officer for life, and the disastors inseparable from an elective monarchy, render it preferable, if we cannot tread back that step, that we should go forward & take refuge in an hereditary one. Of the correction of this Article however I entertain no present hope, because I find it has scarcely excited an objection in America. And if it does not take place ere long, it assuredly never will. The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, & government to gain ground. As yet our spirits are free. Our jealousy is only put to sleep by the unlimited confidence we all repose in the person to whom we all look as our president. After him inferior characters may perhaps succeed and awaken us to the danger which his merit has led us into."

    Online Library of Liberty - TO EDWARD CARRINGTON - The Works, vol. 5 (Correspondence 1786-1789)

    interesting analysis of the constitution...

    You, of course, can prove that Obama was wrong.

    Actually that isn't a fake quote. That is a real quote. The statement is a lie, however.
