The power to vote does not constitute "representation", where there is no assurance that representatives will abide by their oaths of office, and use the treasury as an instrument to perpetuate their reelection by special interest constituencies, whose allegiance is secured with confiscated and redistributed wealth. Sound familiar?

If we could make this into a law today ...there'd likely be somewhere in the vicinity of 495 empty seats in Congress tomorrow.

And what would be wrong with that? I think we could devise a system that could take care of the Constitutional requirements - and while we're at it, perhaps we can replace the Men In Black with a computer program that can interpret the constitution better.

History may give Obama a few different monikers, but according to a well-known report by the Heritage Foundation, he may be best known as the Red Tape President. Facing an increasingly disenchanted electorate, the president who campaigned on hope seems to be fashioning a political noose created by his own red tape.     

Last year Obama chief of staff Bill Daley faced an angry crowd of manufacturers who complained that the red tape imposed by Obama’s regulatory policies was killing business and jobs, especially in manufacturing. Daley called the regulatory policies “indefensible,” and implied that relief was on the way.
