President Bush yesterday urged House lawmakers to “get this bill passed,” warning that the financial crisis “has gone way beyond New York and Wall Street.”

“This is an issue that’s affecting hardworking people. They’re worried about their savings, they’re worried about their jobs, they’re worried about their houses, they’re worried about their small businesses,” Bush said.

No, Bush. They’re worried about the national debt, they’re worried about the value of the dollar, they’re worried about central government control, and they’re worried about losing their freedom. Well … at least some of them are.

So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannize will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent, and will devote themselves in the name of any number of gods, religious and otherwise, to put shackles upon sleeping men. -Voltaire
