The Thomas Jefferson Memorial is a presidential memorial in Washington, D.C. that is dedicated to Thomas Jefferson, an American Founding Father and the principal author of the Declaration of Independence (1776). Jefferson was one of the most influential Founding Fathers, known for his promotion of the ideals of republicanism in the United States. Jefferson envisioned America as the force behind a great “Empire of Liberty” that would promote republicanism and counter the imperialism of the British Empire. Republicanism stresses liberty and inalienable rights as central values, makes the people as a whole sovereign, rejects inherited political power, expects citizens to be independent in their performance of civic duties, and vilifies corruption. Republicanism asserts that the people’s unalienable rights cannot be voted away by a majority of voters. Jefferson and Madison both denounced the Federalists for creating a national bank as tending to corruption and monarchism. Jefferson never relented but by 1815 Madison switched and announced in favor of a national bank, which he set up in 1816.

The Founding Fathers wanted republicanism because its principles guaranteed liberty, with opposing, limited powers offsetting one another. They thought change should occur slowly, as many were afraid that a “democracy”- by which they meant a direct democracy- would allow a majority of voters at any time to trample rights and liberties in the “heat of a moment” ~ exemplified by George W Bush post September 11, 2001 .

They thought democracy could take the form of mob rule that could be shaped on the spot by a demagogue - a leader who makes use of popular prejudices and false claims and promises in order to gain power - e.g. Barack Hussein Obama. Therefore they devised a written Constitution which could only be amended by a super majority, preserved competing sovereignties in the constituent states, gave the control of the upper house (Senate) to the states, and created an Electoral College to select the president. They set up a House of Representative to represent the people.

According to Intrade there is now a 70% chance the Democrats will lose the House to the Republicans in the upcoming elections. Odds of a Republican victory in the House of Representatives has surged over the last 18 months. Why? Voters are madder than ever at Congress, with the majority of the nation wanting a clean slate.

A growing number of Americans feel their country is broken. The people are upset and angry. There’s so much stress in America. It’s keeping their trust from being rebuilt.

Although conventional wisdom has long held that people dislike Congress but like their district representatives, campaigners and campaign-watchers alike say this is not the year to take anything for granted.

Richard Brigle, 57, a Vietnam War veteran and former Teamster, came from Paw Paw, Mich. He said health care needs to be reformed — but not according to President Barack Obama’s plan.

“My grandkids are going to be paying for this. It’s going to cost too much money that we don’t have,”

“I can’t figure out to save me what Mr. Obama and the Democrats are trying to accomplish, unless they want socialism,” 73-year-old Joseph Wright, a retired paper-mill worker, told The Wall Street Journal.

Terri Hall, 45, of Starke, Fla., said she felt compelled to become political for the first time because she was upset by government spending. “Our government has lost sight of the powers they were granted,” she said. She added that the deficit spending was out of control, and said she thought it was putting the country at risk.

Do you realize that the US economic crisis all began with the Democrats in full control of both the House and the Senate? It was the Democrats who bankrupted the nation with their money laundering of federal tax dollars to the crooked bankers of the Federal Reserve Banks. It was the Democrats who are responsible for the millions of job loses and mortgage foreclosures. It is the Democrats who are responsible for the millions of Americans who now rely solely on food stamps to survive. It was the Democrats who imposed a health care extortion scheme onto the people of the United States of America. They didn’t solve the health care system problem of price gouging by the corporate administrators of hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry. They forced everyone who couldn’t afford health care in the first place to pay for the health care of the filthy rich with money that is for the basic essentials - food and shelter. Anyone who doesn’t pay their share to the upper class will be imprisoned until they pay. The Democrats took away even more guaranteed rights and freedoms of the American people. It is the Democrats who allows Obama to unlawfully assassinate any American who apposes him and his Socialist agenda and to commit war crimes by attacking civilians in Pakistan and Afghanistan with CIA unmanned drones. Yes Mr Obama, CHANGE is coming and on November 2, 2010 the House and the Senate will turn colors - from blue to red.
