LOL, Dan. I am not young. And using slang on occasion, especially when being a smart ass., isn't a disqualifier. And, nothing I have said equals poor communication skills, so yes you are a snob. You talk down to everyone. And WIllie has not made a more compelling argument than I have.
And Amendment 10 says any powers (over rights), not given to the Federal Government by the US Constitution belongs to the People and the States. The Constitution says the Feds can ONLY do a few things, and the laws can't go beyond those limits.
William, the Constitution is not rag, IF obeyed it keeps the Federal Government in check. And, you can't have it both ways, calling it a rag when you don't like what I say, BUT then using it when you think it supports your view.
And you are full of it. All the unjust wars, slavery and the death of indigenous people by the US did NOT amount to more than the Soviets killed, and definitely not when you add the other communist nations and those they killed. That is BS.
If the US government obeyed the US Constitution, then we would not have all these wars for power, wealth and resources like Vietnam and the Philippines in the Spanish American War. The Founders were against being an Empire.
Wrong, remember? You said I am anti-government. Can't make up your mind? I have NEVER praised the US government. I have praised the system that the Founders set up (minus not banning slavery to get every State on board).
