Only Zombie George Mason Can Save Us Now

Obama’s final health-care rally is being held at George Mason University.

What would its namesake say at a moment like this?

Perhaps: “Attend with diligence and strict integrity to the interest of your correspondents and enter into no engagements which you have not the almost certain means of performing.”

(So that’s a “no” to we’ll-pay-for-it-with-a-tax-hike-in-2018, huh?)

“There never was a government over a very extensive country without destroying the liberties of the people.”

“In all our associations; in all our agreements let us never lose sight of this fundamental maxim – that all power was originally lodged in, and consequently is derived from, the people.” (Sounds like a Tea Partier.)

Also, it looks like he met a young Robert Byrd: “I wish I knew where to get a good one myself; for I find cold Sheets extremely disagreeable.”
