Quote of the day–Breda

We’re Americans. We bow to no one.

The Bow
[I’m sure others have said this before but this occasion to elaborate on it struck me as particularly appropriate. It’s part of the public servant/ruler thing. The United States does not have “rulers”. It has public servants. Public officials are delegated their powers by the consent of the people. The constitution does not grant rights, it guarantees them. It grants limited, enumerated, powers to the government. The people are the highest authority in the land. We do not bow to authority figures anymore than you would bow to your next door neighbor.–Joe]

  1. “The United States does not have “rulers”. It has public servants.”

    This may have been true at one time. Unfortunately, a very large number of modern Americans have a propensity for celebrity worship and would be quite comfortable with a monarchy.

  2. “We do not bow to authority figures anymore than you would bow to your next door neighbor.”
    Hell, I’d be more likely to bow to my neighbor than a politician; I respect her more.

  3. Of course the commie-in-chief ain’t anAmerican so he’ll bow to anyone that he thinks is his better – except real Americans.

  4. “Of course the commie-in-chief ain’t anAmerican so he’ll bow to anyone that he thinks is his better – except real Americans.”

    You beat me to it. This guy (BO) is a total embarassment. He has NO CLUE to what an American is. He just believes what his commie mother and her parents shoved into his head. Oh, don’t forget the crap William Ayers and the Chicago muslim crowd fed the drone.
