"We may not see ourselves as having an empire, but with some 800 military stations abroad and two unending trillion dollar wars, we do. Even a great and blessed country can become an empire when it extends itself, even with the best intentions, into the farthest corners of the world. These are perilous times. Our future, in the words of Senator Tom Coburn, 'is as uncertain and tenuous as at any point in our history.' The Tea Party represents probably the last hope for reform — for stopping ruinous government spending, reining in our out-of-control bureaucracy, and saving our constitutional freedoms." (02/21/11)
