Missouri's 7th District, U.S. House of Representatives




Congressional Issues 2010

    America is the land of liberty.
    At least it was the land of liberty.
    Most of the liberties our Founding Fathers fought and died for have been lost. Outside of Independence Hall in 1787, Ben Franklin was reportedly asked about the results of the Constitutional Convention: "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it."

We have not kept it.

Nor have we kept the liberties symbolized by the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia.

In large measure we have not kept our liberties because we have abandoned personal responsibility.
