All the while the corporatist simply buys congress and gets 80% of what he wants. He sits down and shrugs about the last 20% realizing it is not worth killing people over. He makes a call to his board authorizing offshoring another factory. 400 people unemployed is definitely an okay price to go from a net worth 1.01 billion to 1.03 billion.

The Constitution is an enslavement edict...PERIOD.

If you defend it you defend Marxism (before Marx!).

No it's not.

You need some semblance of order to have a reasonable existence. The Constitution provides that.

LOL!


Life, Liberty & Property, are the exact opposite of Marxism, the Progressive Era has modeled itself after.

Problem is the Constitution is bastardized beyond all use now. Other ideologies have the teeth to defend what's important.

No man is good enough to govern another, without the other's consent.
The alternative is, being property.

And yet that is exactly what the Constitution has served as - an edict of enslavement - for the State rule over man without consent.

Low intelligence and laziness are not an excuse for enslavement.

So which one are you?


[] One of the sovereign people who directly exercise sovereignty over their person, liberty and property, whose endowed rights are secured by government?
[] Or one of the subject citizens who indirectly exercise sovereignty via delegation to representatives, and have surrendered endowed rights in exchange for civil and political liberties (i.e."rights") by consent to be governed?
