Things to ponder lest we forget where we came from

There is no week nor day nor hour when tyranny may
not enter upon this country—if the people lose their
confidence in themselves—and lose their roughness and
spirit of defiance.—Walt Whitman

The “Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service”
is in the tradition of the “Jeffrey Dahmer Medal for
Better Human Relations”. It reminds me of the 1973
Nobel Peace Prize won by Henry Kissinger.
Previous recipients include James Baker, Dick
Cheney and the much hated Brian Mulroney. At the
dinner, George W. Bush lauded Mr. Harper (via
video) for his “leadership” in the war on terror and
ended by saying “God bless Steve.”
Harper is following in the footsteps of Woodrow
Wilson who betrayed his country in 1913 by setting
up the Federal Reserve Bank, and again in 1917 by
entering World War One, which was about to end in
a draw. In both cases Wilson was blackmailed and
manipulated. In a famous statement for posterity,
Wilson confessed:
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly
ruined my country. A great industrial nation is
controlled by its system of credit. Our system of
credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation,
therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a
few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled,
one of the most completely controlled and dominated
Governments in the civilized world no longer a
Government by free opinion, no longer a Government
by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a
Government by the opinion and duress of a small
group of dominant men.”

“The individual is handicapped by coming face-toface
with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe
it exists.”—J. Edgar Hoover

“Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to
defend truth is to suppress it; and indeed to neglect
to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less
a sin than to encourage them.” –Pope St. Felix III

“If ever again our nation stumbles upon
unfunded paper, it shall surely be like death to our
body politic. This country will crash.”—George
Washington, first President of United States of
America (paraphrased from a letter to Jabez Bowen,
Rhode Island, Jan. 9, 1787)
