Be careful what you wish for, voters

I hear people saying all the time that this is a democracy. Where do you get this information? This country was founded under a republic. Look in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution or any state constitution, and you will find nothing about a democracy.

I would like to say I don't care if you are a Democrat or a Republican -- you better look real closely at all the presidential candidates. We are losing our rights day by day.

Someone said more than 100 years ago that a government that is powerful enough to give you everything you want is a government powerful enough to take everything you have.
