"Nip the shoots of arbitrary power in the bud, is the only maxim which can ever preserve the liberties of any people. When the people give way, their deceivers, betrayers, and destroyers press upon them so fast, that there is no resisting afterwards. The nature of the encroachment upon the American constitution is such, as to grow every day more and more encroaching. Like a cancer, it eats faster and faster every hour. The revenue creates pensioners, and the pensioners urge for more revenue. The people grow less steady, spirited, and virtuous, the seekers more numerous and more corrupt, and every day increases the circles of their dependents and expectants, until virtue, integrity, public spirit, simplicity, and frugality, become the objects of ridicule and scorn, and vanity, luxury, foppery, selfishness, meanness, and downright venality swallow up the whole society." ~ John Adams
I Surrender All, a Neo-Conservative Hymn
A Neo-Conservative Hymn
All to Dubya, I surrender; All to Him I freely give; I will ever love and trust Him, In His presence daily live.
I surrender all, I surrender all, All to Thee, my blessed State, I surrender all.
All to Ashcroft I surrender; Humbly at His feet I bow, Worldly pleasures all forsaken; Take me, P'lice State, take me now.
All to Rumsfeld, I surrender; Chickenhawk Warrior, wholly Thine; Let me feel the Blood Cult Spirit, Truly know Conquest is mine.
All to Faux News, I surrender; Lord, I give myself to TV; Fill me with Thy love and power; Let PsyOp's blessing fall on me.
All to DeeCee I surrender; Now I recite the sacred pledge. O the joy of full SLAVation! Glory, glory, to Thy Name!
