An Exception to the Rule

Update:  Some good thinking here regarding what truly works and doesn't in a society.


This blog deals with thinking - personal and collective - and is not usually a current events, political, or social commentary.
However, there were a host of "thoughts going bump in the night" November 2, 2010. 

"...The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."  Thomas Jefferson.
The Constitution has proven its worth. Indeed, the tree of Liberty has been refreshed, but with the votes of patriots rather than blood.

WE, the People, have used our Constitution to throw out the bums in Congress that do not listen. What has transpired across the United States is not an "anti-incumbent" rant, but a deep rejection of those elected officials who ignored us and forced legislation, by means of dubious process, down our throats. Bad medicine, bad. The newly elected will do well to remember this.

We, the People, are considered the New World for all the correct reasons. You want a blueprint for a "New World Order?" Here we are: E pluribus unum.

Now, are we serious? If so, the new Congress can begin the debate on Fair Tax as the means to fund the federal government. Begin in February, 2011 and keep at it until such time as that revolutionary measure is the properly debated, voted, and decided the law of the land or honestly rejected. If enacted, the Fair Tax will unleash unimaginable energy and prosperity for the new century.
