"Freedom of SPEECH" is now "freedom of EXPRESSION", is now any way you want it to be, etc.

How many fed agencies do we have now that are NOT defined as a fed responsibility in the Constitution?

Dept of Education for one. Where does it say ANYWHERE the fed is responsible for public education?
Freedom of speech except for anything the left disagrees with.

As for the right's love affair with the second amendment, I'm cool with that as long as you guys use your semi-automatics on one another instead of this on-going slaughter of the innocent.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go polish my horns and tuck in my forked tail.
"Oh, wait! That would be your guy who never saw a constitution he couldn't circumvent and can't wait for the courts to overthrow"

We are NOT talking about OBAMA! he was OVERTURNED MORE then any other president.

Always funny to watch how libs NEVER take responsibility their OWN actions!

I know it is hard to stay on topic but we ARE talking about the FED, NOT states.

All you cite are STATE responsibility and NOT the fed. Or maybe you don't know the difference!
Most highway funding comes from the federal gas tax, not from state sources. Public libraries are not state responsibilities, they are (mostly) funded and managed by county or city governments.

I know the health care issue was attacked full on and I do believe the sense of urgency to push it through explains some of the problems with it.

And I don't remember any talk of abolishing the Constitution.
"Did the 2nd Amendment even come up?" Do you think a so-called "assault" weapon ban follows the 2nd amendment?


Sen Diane Feinstiein WOULD HAVE if she had the votes. And ISN'T the ONLY dem to want to do it.

Personal tax returns are private. The tax returns of publicly held companies traded on the stock market are public information.

This is pretty basic. You may wish to learn some stuff before spouting off ill-informed opinions on politics.

Ya'll are all so funny.
"Ya'll are all so funny" Better to be FUNNY then ignorant!


"Please do tell what freedoms you have lost" I LOST my FREEDOM to NOT drive my car WITHOUT wearing a seat belt or I will be fined.

I LOST my freedom to NOT "participate" in a FORCED retirement plan I do NOT like, Social Security.

I LOST my freedom of serving in MY business whom I CHOOSE.

I lost my FREEDOM to NOT wear a helmet if I CHOOSE.

I lost my FREEDOM to buy a gun WITHOUT jumping through a lot of hoops.

I LOST my freedom to "BEAR" arms without a permit and PAYING for that right.

I LOST my FREEDOM to build on my property what I want WITHOUT getting a "permit", and ONLY what they say I can and "meets" their requirements.

Etc., etc., etc., The list is VERY LONG.
