    As the Constitution says it should. The Constitution does not give the federal government power. It limits it.



    It can be good if done right. Unfortunately, it goes far beyond trade, to where we have global government advocates, pushing and succeeding in us losing more and more sovernity.


    I do like this form of government our founding fathers gave us. I like the monarchy system as well, but I understand why the Founding Fathers did what they did. Both require vigilance and we have fallen asleep at the wheel.
    Thanks doc. You know I need to go back and re-read the U.S. Constitution. It's been a while. I'll have some more questions for you soon...

    I'll be waiting on em.
    The state — whatever its particular forms — always expresses itself as a collective form of property ownership. All political systems are socialistic, in that they are premised upon the subservience of individual interests to collective authority. Communism, fascism, lesser forms of state socialism, and welfarism, are all premised upon the state’s usurpation of privately-owned property. Whether one chooses to be aligned with the political "Left," "Right," or "Middle," comes down to nothing more than a preference for a particular franchise of state socialism.

    Hey Doc,

    I have another question for you. In several posts you've said that America today is no longer what the founding fathers had intended. So exactly what kind of country did they intend for America to be?

    Well, where do I start.

    They intended for us to have liberty, to be a free people. The Federal Government was to be small. The states were to be thier own countries. Only centralized in the sense the Federal government can do its own just functions, which is protect the people and provide infrastruture. The Federal Government wasnt to have a National Education Association, an IRS, among other alphabet depts.

    The states were to raise armies to lend to the federal government in case a state was attacked. For you attack one, you attack us all. The reason for the declaration of war. To be unified.

    To worship God or not to worship God. Even God grants people that right. Some to glory, some to eternal damnation.

    Among other things if I get time to get into it tomorrow. But thats a good start.

    How much of the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers have you read?

    It's not a 'type,' it's, as DR said, 'this nation period.' There's only one, so it's not a 'type.'
