The United States Constitution guarantees us numerous rights and liberties, but the ones most essential and inalienable are those of life, liberty, and property. As I am writing this entry, there are scores of constitution maggots in DC working to erode those very rights which we hold dear. The finest examples of this are the two pieces of legislation currently awaiting a vote; cap-and-trade and health care.
These two pieces of legislation are heinous by design. Health care, simply put, gives the government command of every aspect of an individuals life, effectively turning citizens into subjects. Once the government owns an individuals health, the government owns the individual and every right guaranteed under the first 8 amendments of the US Constitution can be circumnavigated on the bases of public health and cost to the government. In fact, cap-and-trade can be implemented under the health-care bill as a means to provide a healthier, and thereby more cost effective, environment for the population. The health care bill decimates the constitution and our personal freedoms denying us of liberty and, in some cases, life.
Cap-and-Trade threatens to deny many of us property. Woven in the fabric of the bill is an energy policy defunct of logic. It allocates billions of dollars for, and prioritizes alternative energy sources whose technologies do not work, and which take enormous amounts of land in order to be even remotely viable.

You can never predict the outcome of things like this.
On that statement I agree.
“The People” did not vote for secession from England either. It was a small group of men who actually made the decision.
The Democrats are the Loyalists. The Republican Party represents no one. In fact our faction could be called “Nationalist”. (Taking a page from Spanish History textbook)
It was a small group of men who actually made the decision.
Whatever......... but I doubt it would happen that way today. When Texas left the union in 1861 it was done with a Secession Convention in which the Ordinance of Secession was adopted 166-8. In other words the people were represented.
South Carolina would be next.
That would be awesome.
The wingnuts never define themselves as such. They're literally the last to know.
