Waxman vs. Jefferson
For this reason, the right to keep and bear arms has remained uninfringed. Congressman Henry Waxman differs with an enlightened and armed citizenry.
Can we expect anything less from Congressman Waxman?
This man loves to legislate.
This man loves to investigate -- matters which make the opposition look bad, even though the man did absolutely nothing during his decade and a half tenure as the Chairman of the Oversight Committee when the Democratic Congress was engaged in Check-kiting and postage fraud in the early 1990s. Did the man even have enough sense to consider that looking into ethical violations among members of his own party would have permitted the Democrats to stay in power after the 1994 election?
The government that fears the people is too small to threaten anyone. The government that is big enough to give you everything that you want is big enough to take it away.
Waxman wants a government that is big enough to give you everything that you think that you want, or rather need.
From food stamps to welfare handouts to health insurance subsidies, which are actually hurting the industry as opposed to increasing access for all, Congressman Waxman has never met a handout or subsidy that he did not like.
Now there is no more money for the "Great in Name Only" Society. Unlike Waxman, Jefferson predicted a society in which the federal government played at best a limited role. During his first term in office, Jefferson cut back on the outrageous overlays of the Federalist administration, including the midnight appointments which expanded the ranks of the federal judiciary.
Waxman is afraid of anyone who would take up arms against the federal government.
This Congressman cherishes a vision of the state contrary to the intention of the Founders and the essence of the Constitution.
This lawyer turned legislator has no respect for the rule of law, and he has been a Congressman for the past 38 years?
Enough is enough. For the sake of domestic tranquility and the general welfare, to ourselves and our posterity, Waxman has got to go.
