GLENN: Yeah, let's go back to Nancy Pelosi because she was waxing poetic
PAT: About the founding fathers and the DREAM Act.
PELOSI: They designed a great seal of our country and it said novus ordo
seclorum, a new order for the ages. How confident they were.
PELOSI: How optimistic they were.
PELOSI: No country in the history of the world had ever had founders founding on
a new principle of equality of people and freedom.
GLENN: You are so right.
PELOSI: Separating themselves from a great military power by winning
independence and saying this was about a new order for the future.
GLENN: He is right, may I -- stop. May I just say, may I just say that the
president, Washington, praised this revolutionary beginning. He did. And he
loved the new order for the -- for the ages. He loved this concept. And in March
of 1790, in fact, George Washington said as mankind becomes more liberal. So we
know he was a progressive if you're going to, going to universities now in
school, just leave it at that. As mankind becomes more liberal, George

Wait a minute. Those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community
are equally entitled to the protection of the civil government. That is weird.
So the new order for the ages is that people will become more self-reliant, they
will become less apt to rely on government and more apt to rely on themselves
and God? And they will become a better society, a better member of society and
they will help civil society become much more structured so you can have less
government because they're doing the right thing themselves. You don't need to
have a police-state because as people become more independent, more liberal in
the 1790 version of the word "Liberal," you won't have to have people be police
because people will police themselves. They won't break laws. They will do
what's right for a civil society. Huh. And they will be worthy members of the
Nancy, I don't know where you were going with this whole thing on the DREAM Act,
but I have a feeling once again that George Washington is spinning in his grave,
like a lathe. He's spinning in his grave, as are -- for your distortions -- I'm
going to go off on her again. I'm going to stop or I'm going to have an
