  1. a declaration for a new century.

    government definitely has to be downsized; it has its hands in too many pies; the potential for corruption is just everywhere.

    I would like to make a list for my our country (Australia). i think it would closely parallel your wishes and hopes though.

    blessings, and love,

    By far, my favorite post of yours. I may have to borrow it, if that’s okay.

  4. AMEN. Unfortunately, we have a growing rift between what was the United States OF America, and what has become the United States OR America. They seem to be two distinct nations these days, and I’m hoping that we’ll see the good one (America) emerge because I’m sick of seeing Obama and his cronies acting like old King George III and the British Parliament. If it does, you’ll see a nation with all of those qualities and more. With that, Lincoln will be right in having said that “A nation of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish from this Earth.” Hope your days are better than mine, and visit my blog at Inquietude76 if you get the chance.
