Isn’t our choice really one of up or down? Down through statism, the welfare state, more and more government largesse, accompanied always by more government authority, less individual liberty and ultimately totalitarianism, always advanced as for our own good. The alternative is the dream conceived by our Founding Fathers, up to the ultimate in individual freedom, consistent with an orderly society. – Ronald Reagan

CNN hosted a Green Party Town Hall yesterday, featuring presidential candidate, Jill Stein, and her running mate, Ajamu Baraka.

 

Margaret Thatcher on Firing Line, 1977

It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have had new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning can not be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction can not lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers.  – President Calvin Coolidge, The Inspiration for the Declaration, 1926

Coolidge explains how our country is historically and practically based on principles, and demonstrates how “…Governments do not make ideals, but ideals make governments.”  You can read his entire speech here.
