I have a great amount of respect for Neal, but I have to disagree with his 'unlimited ability to tax' arguement. It a The Federal Government has been doing this for years, only they've been doing in a reverse way. Here's what I mean. Today, we pay an income tax. Then government says that if you perform a certain activity (pay a mortgage, install energy efficient appliances or windows, etc), then you can deduct that from your income for tax purposes and recieve a refund. It's the same thing, it is just applied in the opposite way... Health Insurance... pay $x income tax No Health Insurance... pay $x income tax + $2500 Income, with no mortgage.... pay $y Income, with mortgage... pay $y - (marginal rate x interest expense)

the fact - THE FACT - that illegal migrants are NOT LIABLE for even assault, burglary, rape, SHOULD WARN YOU THAT YOU ARE SUBJECT TO EXTREME ENFORCEMENT OF THE MOST TRIVIAL RULES TO SET AN EXAMPLE.

Do Americans – do you -- really understand the gravity of what happened in the Supreme Court yesterday? Do you have any idea at all how the power of the Imperial Federal Government of the United States has been exponentially increased?

Answer? No, you probably don’t. You really can’t be faulted for that, I guess. After all, our wonderful government school system was designed to educate you, but only to the point that you don’t become a threat to your political rulers. The American people are a product of those schools, and the American people are, by and large,...
