America's ills go back a long way

I'm replying because I want you to know that your words are heard, not because I want to argue with you.
What has been the response of the Federal government to the demand for transparency? Well, in 1798, the response was the Aliens & Sedition Act. That was when the press was muzzled, and dissent against what Criminals in government are doing was outlawed. So you can pretty much say, the Federal government has been against us all along, no matter what the founders had to say about it. Which leads me to say to everyone reading this...We have a lot of work to do. And the very serious question I want to ask each of you- Can we really afford to wait until Nov, 2012?

"What if the American people learn the truth: ...We have allowed our nation to be over taxed, and over regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats- The founders would be ashamed of us for what we're putting up with!" ~Dr. Ron Paul, for President 2012.
