"The wealthy, not only by private fraud but also by common laws, do every day pluck and snatch away from the people some part of their daily living. Therefore, when I consider and weigh in my mind these commonwealths which nowadays do flourish, I perceive nothing but a certain conspiracy of rich men in procuring their own commodities under the name and authority of the commonwealth.

They invent and devise all means and crafts, first how to keep safely without fear of losing that which they have unjustly gathered together, and next how to hire and abuse the work and labor of the people for as little money and effort as possible."

Thanks Coldie!!

I have to say I was a bit impressed by this guy and he did not back down to the CNN anchor. I liked when the anchor said he was turning his back on the President and the guy set him straight. Like he said, the Commander-in-Chief will not be here in a few months and it will be someone else's problem. Along with our children and grandchildren. Thanks Mr. Bush!

If not for the ferocious negative response from constituents, Congress would have buckled a week ago. Having said all that Shelby still deserves a lot credit here.
