Sickening and depressing as all get out.
Socialism/Communism is very expensive. Throw in the costs of running a police state and the cost of “government” can soar out of sight! The cost of building an army of IRS taxmen is insane.

Not only did the FFs believe, as you so correctly point out that:
“...it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it,...”
BUT there were opinions of that day (paraphrased) which took it a step further, (but unfortunately did not see fit to include in our founding docs):
“...that it is their duty to do so ...”
