Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither, and lose both.
-- Benjamin Franklin

A 140 year old term, still current

After the Civil War,vast numbers of politicians, almost entirely republicans, moved from the North to the South, seeking to take advantage of the reconstruction period to grab their slice of political power. They were termed “Carpetbaggers” after the cheap suitcases they carried their belongings in as they hurried south.

It makes you wonder what kind of luggage Alan Keyes uses, as he hurriedly moves from Maryland to Illinois, hoping to establish residence so he can run for the senate.
