Mr. Hunter you do not have a firm grasp of reality. The truth is the economy WILL crash and burn in our lifetimes. It will not be akin to a government shutdown. It will be your savings, your investments, your paycheck, your college funds and the value of your dollar. You personally will be severely impacted as I doubt you have the skill sets necessary to survive in a 19th century economy where barter and precious metals serve as currency. Good luck. There isn't enough money in the universe to solve the woes of the imperial Federal government. No strategy of Republicans or democrats will do anything to prevent the coming crash. Remember it will happen in our lifetimes.
John, Tbmbuzz is 100% correct. The restrictions of the Constitution apply to the government, not to private businesses or individuals. "Congress shall make no law..." are the first 5 words of the 1st Amendment and that applies equally to every other Amendment. Barring certain legal restrictions on hiring practices (race and sex mainly) private employers are under no obligation to respect your right to free speech (as an example) or most any other right. You can be fired by a conservative because you are a liberal and you have no recourse and the reverse is also true. As long as the business or individual adheres to local laws they are not bound to respect your rights. You may be fired for what you believe but you may not be imprisoned for it, fined or killed by a business. Only the government has the power to use deadly force legally.

I am sorry to have to point this out Mark but the states are NOT free to bypass the Constitution with this foolish NPV bill. It is a clear violation of the Compact Clause of the Constitution and would be ruled unconstitutional so fast it would make your head spin.
With all due respect Mr. Sterman, your statement "The government has pumped more money into the economy than it has extracted..." is an impossibility. As any beginning economics student knows, government has no money of its own. It only has that which it extracts from the private sector either though borrowing or taxes or inflating the money supply. Government merely substitutes its judgement on the allocation of that money for the judgement of the free market which leads to a massive mis-allocation of that money.

With all due respect Katie I am unaware of any Constitutional right to vote. Would you please cite the portion of the Constitution that mentions this purported right? Thank you.
