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."
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)

Jan's & March's Guest Speaker
Matthew Besheer was a detective with the port authority of New York and New Jersey assigned to their intelligence unit. On February 26, 1993 a bomb went off in the basement of the world trade center which was part of the port authority's jurisdiction. Det. Besheer was sent to the F.B.I. as a member of their joint terrorist task force to assist in the investigation...... The rest of the story is here.
Dr. Mordecai Kedar an Israeli born scholar of Arabic literature spoke at our meeting in Feb. It was co-sponsored with ZOA Sarasota. Ours being a being a Patriot group, I was impressed was the amount ZOA Jewish folks in attendance. I could have been in Brooklyn. I say this because I generally associate Jews with the more progressive / liberal elements of politics and the media. -S.E.
Dr. Mordecai Kedar explained the perspective of the Arabs towards Christians and Jews to 125 people last night at the Firestation. He was magnificent.
I learned Egyptians were Christians until the Muslims took over in 639.
The Coptic Christians were required to pay a Jizya (tax) to the Muslims for protection since they couldn't serve in the Muslim military. The Christians were persecuted by an Islamic Caliphate and then by the Crusades. Today very few Christians remain in Egypt. Arabic was accepted as the liturgical language in 1131.
When America is wrong and insists they're right it's extremely dangerous
since most countries follow our lead and many have no idea that many Americans
do not trust or believe our president. The biased media is killing America...
we need truth now.
I would like to see no more Visas or Passports issued to Muslims. I would like to
see universities and colleges where muslim students are rallying support for their
antisemetic beliefs remove these students from their campus and return them
to their homeland. Wherever the muslims are requesting Sharia Law we must ask
them to leave. It is unconstitutional to contribute to their welfare....it is treasonous. -B.C.
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

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 account. Finally, we are not a tea party group. We are truly a grass roots organization of Patriots. We beat our own drums. Where we direct you to a You Tube video, we have a copy on our own server should it disappear one day. In recent times, spired on by the atrocities of those calling themselves Muslim, we have take a more aggressive position towards Islam before their populations in this country reach the boiling point. We cant afford to be complacent and apathetic in this regard as were the Germans during the rise of Third Reich.

OReilly & Krauthammer Size up the president with blistering commentary.
…since losing the House, Obama knows the “rest of his agenda will never advance,” and implies that the president is disengaged and “enjoying the presidency. He golfs a lot and he uses that airplane a lot......." (8:45)
Do you suppose the press will interview Mr. Guillory anytime soon?
NOVEMBER 4, 2014 THE PEOPLE SPOKE. It was more than one small step, instead, one giant leap forward for America. Republicans took control of the Senate and increased their numbers in house to historic levels. State Governorships and state house
numbers also gained in a near sweep of the midterm elections casting doubt on Hillary's undeclared plans and doing away with Harry
Reid come January. The ball is in the GOP's court barring Obama's vetoShortly theirafter we took a poll of our members and friends asking what they would like to see the Republicians give priority for the next term. The results are at the right. ------>
