Barry Soetoro, is like "turd in the punch bowl"
Putin is at least a true political "strongman" in the traditional Chicago sense of the word. Obama is a gym basement "down-low man" in the modern Chicago sense of the words.
If Jefferson had his way, we would have been four nations.
An excellent & relevant article.
I neglected to mention that these two amendments were ratified early in 1913; just in time for WWI, and the first US involvement in a European war.
The ratification of the 16th and 17th Amendments to the US Constitution ushered tyranny into the Republic.The Bankers ascended, and The States were disenfranchised. We were warned by Dr. Franklin: "If you do not exclude them from these United States, in this Constitution, in less than 200 years our descendants will be working in the fields to furnish them substance, while they will be in the counting houses, rubbing their hands. I warn you, gentlemen, if you do not exclude them for all time, your children will curse you in you graves." God's will, or the powers of evil men? Who can say, but free will allowed money changer, always evil men, to cripple the American Republic, and only repeal of both articles will right this ship of state. And what of our political parties? “There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”– John Adams Finally, this observation: "The American people, North and South, went into the war [Between the States] as citizens of their respective states, they came out as subjects... And what they thus lost they have never got back." -- H. L. Mencken Amen.

Mr Sowell has reminded us of the obvious; to what end I, I can only wonder. Aside from this, I am left with a question inferred much too often: why is the noun "democracy" ever used as a synonym for a Constitutional Republic? The framework of our Republic is so succinctly described sans the use of that noun which, in practice, foists upon sovereign individuals the rule of the mob. Surely it may be inferred by any discriminating reader that we are not to be ruled by "most of the people", but are rather to be governed by the words of a document. If we are a democracy, why is that never stated? Why give readers the wrong idea, if edification and accuracy are desired, prescribed, and required? Mr. Sowell knows better.

Having been present at the Virginia 7th District Convention, and having attended a local RPV townhall, at both of which Dave Brat spoke, I am certain that he was successful because he is an inveterate liar and a rabble rouser. His entourage includes punks and thugs, who shout-down opponents. Intimidating behavior to be sure, and generally unknown at, and never witnessed previously at, GOP functions. Stock and trade historically for fascist thugs
