"Yeah, tell that to the Confederacy. Seems they got whomped for that."


Well, tell THAT to the Founding Fathers. They were the ultimate seapartists...good thing for us they were.

In fact one of the Founding Fathers (I cannot recall which one - no coffee yet), said that on occasion revolution is needed.

We were established as a Representative Republic. Those that wished to transfer power from the public to the government, via the mob, manipulated the citizens into accepting the falsehood that America is a Democracy.

We are so far from a Constitutionally Functioning government that it would be impossible to return. I'm just trying to figure out the best position to be in when it all washes out.
