Coup Coup Kachoo

"If you destroy a free market, you create a black market."
- Sir Winston Churchill

It is done.

Sentiments we shared, to no avail…

“No, we’re talking far more than curing a potential recession; we’re talking about preserving America as the greatest and most successful experiment in freedom that humankind has ever experienced. We are bogged down trying to understand derivatives, swaps, and other arcane minutia of modern capitalism while overlooking what is really happening. This is the final takeover of America.” (whole column)

- David H. Padden - founder and chairman emeritus of The Heartland Institute

“God grant those few responsible yet remaining in Washington, DC the strength to prevent this massive fraud from occurring. God grant them the courage to stand up in the face of this Marxist tidal wave.” (whole brilliant/terrifying article).

- Jim Simpson is a former White House staff economist and budget analyst.

“The risks of rushing this reckless bill through are immense because setting off down the wrong path now could turn a big problem into a disaster. The House should not be scared by cries of “Fire! Fire!” into gambling away $700 billion of taxpayer money. The House owes it to the American people to take whatever time and effort are necessary to determine the real nature of the current liquidity problems and then to devise more effective solutions that do not threaten to bankrupt the federal government and impoverish the next generation.” (whole statement)

- Fred L. Smith, Jr., President of the Competitive Enterprise Institute

What now to tell the children?

"Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy that did not commit suicide."

- John Adams, Letter, April 15, 1814
