When giving his centennial address to Congress in 1876, then U.S.
Representative James Garfield issued the following warning:
Now, more than
ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If
that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate
ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure,
it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the
national legislature. If the next centennial does not find us a great nation, it
will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the
morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.
Now some members of the U.S. Supreme Court have repeatedly
stated that they feel it necessary to redefine the U.S.
Constitution and Bill of Rights! By redefining,
they mean that they can openly disregard any of the principles and intent of
the original documents that established our nation. Once they can get away
with a flagrant disregard for the U.S. Constitution on any one item, it's
just a matter of time before they completely toss the entire document in the
garbage and fully establish the National Socialist States of America
with a new document that will be subject to their changes and interpretation
as they see fit.

"Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand
by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the
degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to
support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is
unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency
or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country."
