It's not ridiculous to name the truth. Slavery is involuntary servitude. I expect that you and most of the men who fought in WWII would have volunteered (I doubt if that's true for Vietnam) -- but the fact is, they had no choice.
James Madison has my vote too. And if he'll eliminate ALL entitlements, he'll save this country.
I agree wholeheartedly. The stress on democracy is causing untold havoc. We are a Constitutional Republic, meaning it's not a question of majority preference, but of the limits placed on government by the Constitution.
He's been my choice for a long time. Walker has the experience, the tenacity, the smarts, and the ideas. He also can really appeal to people as I saw when present at a speech he made. He can rally the Independents which is very important. Most of the current names being talked of cannot.

A Real Term Limit

There's only one way to keep politicians from constantly seeking office. Remove their power. Limit the power of government to the duties expressed in our Constitution: securing the rights of citizens. If they have nothing to do with the economy - as they shouldn't - they would not have much power or interest in retaining it. The only proper function of the government is the Courts, and the military. State governments may have more powers but are still limited if securing rights is the goal.

We are entitled to secede since the federal government is violating our rights in so many fundamental ways. When the South seceded, they were rebelling because they wished to continue violating the rights of human beings. Whether practical or desirable, the US had the right to stop them.

How about taking away their power by separating the economy from government, the way it essentially was at our Founding and until the Sherman Anti-Trust laws were passed at the end of the 19th century? We don't need geniuses to do the proper job of government: secure our rights, protect us from foreign enemies, just reasonably intelligent, honest people.
His goal is to "transform" America to turn it into a socialist marxist system and to level it to equal all the downtrodden nations of the world. It is true he has no interest in the presidency as we have always understood it. But at his actual goal he is brilliant and at that, he is succeeding.

It matters a great deal who has the balance of power in the Senate. It's much better to have a Rino and Mitch McConnell than more years of Harry Reid.

So you think we're all sacrificial animals, a tribal society, each tied to the lowest common denominator forever? From each according to his ability to each according to his need? Somehow, I don't think our Founders had that in mind when they pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to the creation of a free country.
