What's the point of fighting it. You won't win. The courts are part of the "system." Murray Rothbard pointed out that the primary purpose of the Supreme Court isn't to determine the constitutionality of laws, but has evolved to be one of legitimizing the actions of the state.

Not to mention that the students in the economics class couldn't care less either. They're only in it because they have to fill the day before football, baseball, basketball, cheerleading, track, and wrestling practice, and sexual escapades. Now that I think about it, that sounds a lot like the rest of the American public.

Some of the most socialist-minded people I've ever met were high school economics and government teachers. They themselves have no idea how the economy works, took at most one introductory economics course in college and ended up teaching economics because they have to do something to fill the day between coaching football, baseball, basketball, cheerleading, track, and wrestling practices.

A strong economy doesn't matter! A growing economy doesn't matter! Availability of capital doesn't matter! Taxes on corporations don't matter! Corporate profits don't matter! Unemployment doesn't matter! The deficit doesn't matter! The only things that matter in Washington is getting reelected, padding their campaign slush funds, and increasing their power to get more of the other two. And the only way to do that is to demagog to the ignorant masses of voters.
What real constitutional right of yours is being suppressed by allowing gays to marry?
Corporations are nothing more than groups of people with a common goal. Together they own property and resources, invest, work together, and speak out. They elect leaders among themselves, and those leaders often speak for the group and make decisions. If the group doesn't like what the leaders are doing or saying, they elect someone else. But in the end, corporations are nothing more than groups of people acting together.
What troubles me is why we as a nation continue to elect idiots like Carter. The Jews in the US reliably vote for antisemitic Democrats.
The problem isn't that these protestors have so little that they have to protest. The problem is that they have TOO MUCH! If they were starving without constant handouts, food stamps, welfare, ADC, and unemployment compensation, perhaps they'd spend more time working and less time protesting.
Boehner wouldn't know conservative if he tripped over one. He's a crony capitalist to his core, pocketing campaign donations from everyone who will donate to buy his vote.

Does anyone else see the parallelism between radical Muslims, the thugs that inhabit our inner cities (e.g. Ferguson), and the Nazis of WWII? The parallelism of the preaching of Muslim imams, Al Sharpton and Rev. Wright, and Hitler's speeches? Not all Muslims are death-loving radicals. Not all blacks are thugs, drug dealers, thieves, muggers,or murderers. Not all Germans were Nazis. But the only way to defeat the Nazis was to totally destroy Germany and much of their cities, communities, industry, and culture, and then occupy their homeland for 50 years. Many innocent Germans were killed in the process, and that is unfortunate, but it was the only way to end the Nazi aggression and atrocities. Draw your own conclusions about how to end Muslim atrocities.
