    Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it.

    -Benjamin Franklin, Pennsylvania Journal,1775

    I heard she eats small Mexican babies, pees standing up and may even be an officer of Satan's army. And her soldiers? Millions of clueless Americans who believe her and her healthcare bill benefits America.
