Governor Palin Hits 3 Million on Facebook

Ian: In case you missed it, the Governor crossed the three million mark on Facebook last night. If you haven't done so already and if you are able to do so, please consider donating a symbolic $20.12 (or more) to her PAC to celebrate the milestone. Click on the banner that you see above to make the contribution to her PAC. In any event, here's the morning thread.

"As parents, we can have no joy, knowing that this government is not sufficiently lasting to ensure any thing which we may bequeath to posterity: And by a plain method of argument, as we are running the next generation into debt, we ought to do the work of it, otherwise we use them meanly and pitifully."

Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1776

"He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself."

Thomas Paine, Dissertation on First Principles of Government, December 23, 1791

"I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death."

Thomas Paine, The American Crisis, No. 1, December 19, 1776

"It is the madness of folly, to expect mercy from those who have refused to do justice; and even mercy, where conquest is the object, is only a trick of war; the cunning of the fox is as murderous as the violence of the wolf."

Thomas Paine, The American Crisis, No. 1, December 19, 1776

"Now is the seedtime of continental union, faith and honor. The least fracture now, will be like a name engraved with the point of a pin on the tender rind of a young oak; the wound would enlarge with the tree, and posterity read in it full grown characters."

Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1776
