Robert Bork, from his book “Slouching Towards Gomorrah”
“The judicial adoption of the tenets of modern liberalism has produced a crisis of legitimacy. Contrary to the plan of the American government, the Supreme Court has usurped the powers of the people and their elected representatives. We are no longer free to make our own fundamental moral and cultural decisions because the Court overseas all such matters, when as as it chooses. The crisis of legitimacy occurs because the political nation has no way of responding.
The founders built into our government a system of checks and balances, carefully giving to the national legislature and the executive powers to check each other so as to avoid either executive or legislative tyranny.The Founders had no idea that a Court armed with a written Constitution and the power of judicial review could become not only the supreme legislature of the land but a legislature beyond the reach of the ballot box. Thinking of the Court as a minor institution, they provided no safeguards against its assumption of powers not legitimately its own and its consistent abuse of those powers. Congress and the President check and balance one another, but neither of them can stop the Courts adventures in making and enforcing left-wing policy."

George W. Bush had no idea at the time how prophetic his words would be.
“I know some in Washington would like us to start leaving Iraq now. To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we’re ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States. It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al-Qaeda. It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. It would mean we’d allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan. It would mean we’d be increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.” The story; Washington Post, Kelly file Video
A couple Jefferson Quotes
I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. (28 May 1816 to John Taylor).
I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. (29 November 1802 to Thomas Cooper)
The Sarasota Patriots are a group of like-minded thinkers in Southwest Florida. We agree on many of social and fiscal issues facing us today. We demand government accountability & preservation of our Constitutional rights and freedoms and support only candidates that do. We abhor the recent decline in morality and increased special interests and corruption in Washington. This website expresses those views as submitted by its members. Furthermore, the Sarasota Patriots practices what we preach: small government, no red tape and no ties that bind. We have no board of directors, and no advisory board. We don’t live under the umbrella of another organization. We have no treasurer and no bank acct. Finally, we are not a tea party group. We are truly a grass roots organization of Patriots. We beat our own drums. Oh, and where we direct you to a You Tube video, we have a copy on our own server should it disappear one day.
