Uhm, "interesting" pick...
Did you know that pre-Civil war is was all about States rights vs. Federal Governments rights? You are correct in that it is The United States of America. It is not the Governed States of America. Slavery as bad as it was to have it in our country was simply not the issue. The issue was that the southern states felt like the federal government had no business telling them what we could and couldn't do in our own states. Hence, the whole argument of states rights vs. federal rights began. I did not vote the Constitutional Party for other reasons. I'm a libertarian! Less government is better government. Durango then Colorado then the US knows what and how much government interference I need to live my life.
Rosevelt foreign policy was right on.... Walk softly and carry a big stick! Since, WW2 our country has been in a downward spiral b/c of our increasingly stupid view of ourselves as word police. That is why I vote libertarian. Less government is better government.
Around the time when the Constitution was written I believe it was Jefferson that said, "Let us have no entangling alliances." On that note.... Fuck Israel! Fuck the middle east! And fuck Europe! If it wasn't for my Grandad's generation those ungrateful assholes would be speaking German. Anyway....
Also, did you all know that the Boston Tea Party happened over a 14% tax? Crazy! Now we don't mind when they take over 50% and want more!!!! Socialism here we go....
Less government is and always will be a better government.
The family unit (which is a basic foundation for our country, whether you want to view it as patriarchal or matriarchal or whatever) would be a lot better off if the government kept its increasingly larger and larger nose out of our personal business and kept its hand out of our wallets. I for one could afford health insurance if I didn't have half of my paycheck ripped off by Uncle Sam. Which would then enable me to give money to those who are truly in need and need help vs. the fat lazy slacker who holds out his hand and expects.
Anyway.... Enough rambling. I've got to go buy some guns before we lose more of our Constitutional Rights!!!!
