Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

Painstaking care vs. rushing it through

Conservatives, Constitution, Government / Bureaucracy, President Obama

 If you have ever studied early American history, you know the painstaking care our founding fathers took in crafting every document. The Declaration, The Constitution, and The Bill of Rights were not just something a few guys threw together without thought.

It is a travesty that our present government is tossing aside the work these men did with so little regard for the consequences of their actions.

Read about the summer of sweating it out over the Constitution. Ben Franklin feared our nationa would never come to be. He suggested the committee appeal to God every morning because he could see no other way those differing points of view would ever agree.

Today we have a president who would toss aside the 1st and 2nd amendment if he could tomorrow. Conservatives fear he will craft a workaround, that will in effect render those rights null and void.

Remember the flag with the snake? Don't tread on me? I am beginning to see a little of that spunk finally come alive again. Will Chicago Tea Party catch on?
