Evidently, I am a Moral Relativist

Tacitus: I believe your position is correct. Your arguments are solid. But, I detect one error in your 11:08 PM post: The federal government has no interests, it has only delegated powers. General welfare is only concerned with the welfare of the people. The federal government may only expend revenues the benefit, directly or indirectly, of every American. That is of course the ideal. In practice it is a very difficult goal to achieve. But if we were to eliminate all the feds do that benefits some at the direct and/or implied expense of many others, most everything the feds do these days does not meet the general welfare standard, and would be summarily curtailed.

Conservatism is not enough. Conservatism is right or wrong, good or bad depending on what the conservative wants to conserve. Taking a completely amorphous word conservative and applying it to oneself reveals next to nothing about the correctness of your positions, the quality of your arguments. or your motivating principles. The same goes for many other labels in common use today.

Right. That's why I did not mention progressives, or conservatives, or republicans, or democrats; they are all more interested in control over others, the environment, be damned!

Practical, efficient environmentalism is almost exclusively the domain of Libertarians.
At some point it is necessary to inform government employees that deeds done in the service of tyranny will not be overlooked or forgotten.
Public support from Santorum would likely harm a good candidate. Be careful what you ask for.
ObamaCare, the biggest scam? What about the FED? What about the government's theft of the electromagnetic spectrum? What about SS? I doubt it ObamaCare could ever match any of those frauds.

Obama Impeachment Almost Complete

Agreed. Neither is Impeachment. The U.S. Congress, as currently constituted, does not have the moral will to impeach. And in the Senate there is no moral will at all.

If, as many believe, Obama is not qualified to be President, impeachment is not necessary. If a court of competent jurisdiction rules him unqualified, he is not the President; therefore he need not be impeached. It is a simple case of, "...here's your hat Mr. Obama, there's the door."

If you want politicians to voluntarily rotate out of office: take the power and privilege out of the office, make public service the un-glamorous, thankless task envisioned by the framers. Watch how fast the rats run away!
