    that is why communism doesn't work

    especially people in positions of power
    what was Kennedys punishment from smashing his car near the capital building ?
    said sorry ran off to rehab, you or I jail baby
    need to eliminate the two sets of standards


    something is not "popular" when it is enforced by the barrel of a gun

    the founders wanted to limit the size and power of the Federal govt
    they gave the Federal govtvery specific powers with an instrument to amend as necessary
    written as a scholar/farmer document so all that could read it could understand it
    the states were to be the incubaters of great ideas and the isolators of bad ideas
    if you want it added, amend the constitution

    I've said that many times..... And with that being the case, why would anyone think that either one is going to suddenly be for the "little guy"?.......

    I get your point, and I agree to certain point, however, local Governments are almost as corrupt as the State and Federal Governments are....... They say "you can't fight City Hall" for a reason.....

    Communism doesn't work for many of the same reasons Capitalism doesn't work....or Democracy doesn't work in the long term...... They all are run by men that eventually succumb to the influence of corrupting forces and greed.....greed for power...and money.... Humans ruling over other Humans has always ended in inequities that have been disastrous overall.....

    I hardly think most people think that Social Security is being forced on them at gunpoint .... Most people are happy with it, and look forward to it when the time comes....as I'm sure you will be too.... I stand by my view that if it was voluntary, the vast majority would still opt in.... If you doubt that.....just see how many are in favor of getting rid of it?
