Where Have All The Statesmen Gone?

Apart from reading "The 5,000 Year Leap" and reading Mark Levin's new book, "Liberty & Tyranny", I have been reading on Wikipedia about our Presidents and other Founders. (Wikipedia is admittedly not necessarily a perfect research tool, but a start, nonetheless) We desparately need a John Adams or a Thomas Jefferson today. We don't have statesmen in this country anymore, all we have are just greedy, power-hungry politicians.

Is there really any real difference between the Democrat Party and the Republican Party with respect to huge government and respect for the Constitution?

I say, no. I personally, am about to abandon the Republican Party and register Independant.

I am convinced that as a Conservative/"Classical Liberal" that unless we return to our roots and the values and principles that our Founding Fathers expoused, we are headed toward doom and tyranny.

We aren't at a state of tyranny yet, but Obama and the progressive Democrat Party, with the help of the Republicans, are pushing us in that general direction.

I say "with the help of the Republicans" because what have they ever done to reverse the size of the Federal Government back to it's Constitutional limits? Moderate Republicans and Liberal Republicans are really no different than Democrats anyway.

Both parties want bloated Federal Government. Just for different aims. I say enough! The Constitution clearly set the limits for the size and scope of the Federal Government's power. Our Federal Government, thanks to both parties, is now unconstitutional in both it's size and scope.

If we don't get States Rights established again,(starting with the Civil War, this country plummeted down the slippery slope of the loss of States Rights and the encroachment of an ever growing, bloated Federal Government), and reduce the Federal Government back down to its proper size - the great experiment in the American Democratic-Republican form of government that our brilliant Founding Fathers gave us is over, and we will crumble under the weight of either socialism or communism, both tyrannies that have been proven by history to NOT work.
