Pertinent Quote

"It’s time we asked ourselves if we still know the freedoms intended for us by the Founding Fathers. James Madison said, ‘We base all our experiments on the capacity of mankind for self-government.’ This idea that government was beholden to the people, that it had no other source of power, is still the newest, most unique idea in all the long history of man’s relation to man. This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.”

—Ronald Reagan

  1. Yeah, very pertinent. Unfortunately, I think we are increasingly looking to others to plan our lives...or at least our neighbor's lives.

  2. A fellow blogger that I read constantly posted a full video of the interview with Yuri Bezmenov

    For your convenience if you have not had time or luck in searching this video out. The post in question also covers conservative issues in relation to Yuri Bezmenov as well.
