    The very term is communist in origin.

    We must go back to first causes.

    Example: Stop abusing legitimate words like gay, or normalizing ersatz terms like homosexual.

    They are seldom gay in the true sense, and there is no such thing as homosexuality.

    It is homoeroticism: the narcissistic fetishization of another human being.

    By accepting and employing their terminology, you have already ceded precious ground on the idological battlefield.

    I hope DJT recommends a mandatory immediate death sentence for those found guilty of killing a police officer.


    A Murderer should get the death penalty but it should not matter if it is a police officer or not.

    You really do not know what you are talking about.

    Why the ad hominem?

    Of course the pretext of the Convention was to rework the A of C, as your link makes
    clear. But in the mind of Madison going in was a brand new creation. The average
    colonist would not have been in agreement with Madison.

    The mis-named Anti-Federalist Papers make the case that rings as true today as then.

    I concur with everything you say, except:

    the Articles of Confederation were flat unworkable. The nation could never have
    remained unified


    That Philadelphia Convention never allowed for that possibility, so we do not know how
    we might have moved forward. But to simply say, as conventional wisdom dictates, that
    doom was inevitable, is making an ill-founded assumption.

    The North had not the right to make aggressive war on the South, but the South had the
    right to defend itself. (Just War theory). We had no right to take Cuba & the Philippines,
    nor Hawaii. We had no right to be in Vietnam nor the Middle East wars.

    Were the unanimous vote of all the states necessary to go to war, perhaps only against
    Hitler might we have joined the fight.

    I work from 2 premises:
    1) all gov't (as you said) is eventually corrupted
    2) only competition brings the possibility of liberty

    As much as I hate the modern federal power grab — which is less a power grab than a power gift by the idiot voters who keep insisting on giving the FedGov more power — the Articles of Confederation were flat unworkable. The nation could never have remained unified.

    I will concede however that we over-corrected.

    Even then, the Constitution worked as designed for as long as we were moral and informed. Yes, Lincoln shredded the constitution, but it really took the modern Communist infiltration of American institutions at every level before the Constitution really became neglected. It worked superbly for the first 100 years of our nation’s history.

    That’s not a bad start. Almost all Democratic forms of government start to collapse after about 200 years, because it takes that long for a generation to come along that has absolutely no clue about or interest in the reasons for creating the Democracy in the first place. It takes that long to collectively forget the original sacrifices, sufferings, and mindset of the people who created the Democracy, which is a Republic in our case.

    James Madison was the architect of the Constitution, and in his determination to see us a
    single nation, he abandoned the Articles of Confederation, against the wishes of the
    common man in the Colonies. But he was an 18th century utopian, and as such, could see
    only benefits & blessings from a powerful, singular, United States.

    Our last great hope for freedom: states as independent entities joined in a loose federal
    government that oversaw treaties, trade, and protection, was lost forever through the
    utopian dreams of Madison, Hamilton, Jay and others.

  • Libertarian Party’s Gary Johnson thinks there’s a good case for banning cigarettes

    My husband knows that smoking for 40 yrs brought him MISERY, in form of COPD, CROHNS, RHEUMETOID ARTHRITIS, among other issues. He finally quit in 2014/ too late for his body to restore itself, but DR warned him for a decade before it happened. He has been on OXYGEN, since 2012.

    So we hang in there, live one day at a time, and make the best of our lives. We are both Christians, and I have close prayer relationship with God... Thank you, and God Bless!

    Good point but it is said that people are living longer in this age than ever before, and it is just a coincidence that
    the people who are living so long today are the ones who grew up and lived much of their life in a town with smoke stacks and most of the ones i know also spent much of their time by wood or coal stoves or camp fires, not to mention smoke filled bar rooms.

    I have smoked for about 67 years and i have problems but i know many people who has never smoked a cigarette in their life has more problems than i do.

    All of my young day friends are gone, smokers and non smokers so i don`t think i will quit doing what i like to do
    just to satisfy this new age thinking.

    you wrote: My point is this, there is NOTHING GOOD about smoking, it is worse than a drug addiction........

    Yes that is the new age way of thinking and that is why they are so screwed up that boys don`t know the difference between boys and girls and don`t know if they are supposed to be boys or girls.

    Like the guy said:
    I cut out drinking, i cut out smoking, i cut out women and now i am cutting out paper dolls.

    So true! I would never eant anything to have that kind of control over me,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    I do not care about drinking much so it is easy for me to say that about drinking, boy talk about will power...

    True, most people would not let any thing have control over them if it was something they did not want to do in the first place.

    Every one wants to go to heaven but no one wants to die, if there is nothing wrong with you what are you going to die of?

    However worse is the cost of drugs with terrible side effects, and the example it sets is children/grandchildren are learning a bad habit...................................

    You call it a bad habit, when Jesus drink with the sinners the gooood people no doubt called that a bad habit, but if they had cigars i would bet a dollar to a hole in a doughnut that Jesus would have a cigar or a cigarette also.

    I know you and your husband must have it rough and i really feel depressed on your behalf, but all you can do is hang in there and keep in touch with God because he is where this is all leading.

    God bless you.

    Knowing how biased this Leftist sinkhole is, no caring parent would send their child there to be abused by its instructors. A diploma from the University of Missouri should be a liability when hiring prospective employees.

    OR COPD! My husband was a smoker for 40 yrs, and is 24/7 on Oxygen, and other cigarette illnesses include RA, Crohns, and Prostate issues....all of which he also has. His last 10 years have been miserable, and he is confined to home 95% of the time, except for doctor appointments. I, too, have been confined to home at times, and I did NOT smoke!

    I have no resentment to taking care of my husband as he is good man, caring, kind, and grateful. It does however show that ‘choices have consequences’. I am reminded of that COMMERCIAL AD on TV about guy whose addiction drug him across the floor, outside, to smoke! So true! I would never eant anything to have that kind of control over me, or my behavior. I wish you well, and it is never to late to quit!

    My point is this, there is NOTHING GOOD about smoking, it is worse than a drug addiction. However worse is the cost of drugs with terrible side effects, and the example it sets is children/grandchildren are learning a bad habit.

    Do I want cigarettes banned? Fine, but, I do not believe government can control morality/religion or other habits like drugs/alcohol/perversions...people will do whatever they can to damage themselves! It is a spiritual issue!

    All those things are Sad, but that is my take on it!
