"If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this in one instance may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit which the use can at any time yield."
--George Washington, Farewell Address, 1796
In other words, Presidents like Bush and Obama CAN NOT and SHOULD NOT be creating law via "Executive Order" or else we end up not being represented by our government, as we are all slowly seeing.
The following quote is one I have been using for many years now, I cannot attribute it to anyone because I'm not aware of the source, it's a quote I like a lot & is something I truly believe, it is short but succinct.
'Never walk around the world with blinkers on, you never know what great people & experiences you may be missing out on'
My favorite quote is from John Witherspoon who played as Willie Jones from Friday. The quote also foreshadows Craig's one-on-one fight with the antagonistic neighborhood bully Deebo near the end of the movie.
Willie: "You win some, you lose some, but you live... you live to fight another day. You think you're a man with that gun in your hand?"
Craig: "I'm a man without it."
Willie: "C'mon, put up your dukes."
[Both put up their fighting stances]
Willie: "Now you're a man."

"[I]t is of the greatest consequence that the debt should ... be remoulded into such a shape as will bring the expenditure of the nation to a level with its income. Till this shall be accomplished, the finances of the United States will never wear proper countenance."
