Foundation Of Government

“Fear is the foundation of most governments; but it is so sordid and brutal a passion, and renders men in whose breasts it predominates so stupid and miserable, that Americans will not be likely to approve of any political institution which is founded on it.” – John Adams

Newt Gingrich knows the difference between a theocracy and a secular republic and, hence, exactly what he is doing when he says, “I find it very offensive to get lectured about religious liberty at a time when there are no churches and no synagogues in Saudi Arabia and when no Christian and no Jew can walk into Mecca.”

Gingrich and I are thus united in our perception of the Fox News audience. It may be time for a career change.

    You are welcome on my TV anytime – but I’m not sure about the connection with Rushbo.

    I could swear I did not take the name of Rushbo in vain above. Anyway, D and I have been wondering for a long time if we’re taking the wrong approach to this whole career/jobs thing. There’s a lot of money to be made in underestimating the American public.
