    an interesting comment given the group most likely to vote for liberal politicians have the lowest average scores on standardized IQ tests

    Do you believe Santorum's comment (assuming you got it right) causes a Constitutional crisis? Is there nothing the one term flexible Marxist president Barack Hussein Obama can do to disgust you?

    I wonder where that wrong thought comes from. There is a book called Makers (that would be those on my side of the issue) and Takers (that would be people on your side of the issue) that shows this is clearly wrong. No skin off my nose. But is is a very weak retort on your part.

    What's astounding is that the people who keep smugly insisting that Congress has unlimited to power to regulate commerce, because they want this law to stand really, really badly, have no idea what they're actually arguing for.

    If this stands, and Congress has unlimited power to force you to engage in commerce, then there's nothing -- nothing -- it can't require you to do.

    I proposed a hypothetical before -- by this notion, Congress could require you to keep your house painted in neutral colors, decluttered and depersonalized. Why? Because the experts say that's what it takes to sell a house. Oh, wait; you don't want to sell your house? Congress can require that you do. Or buy one even if you don't want to. Why? Haven't you noticed the housing market crisis out there?

    There's no end to it, but hey, that's just fine as long as Obama's #1 "accomplishment" is upheld. That's the most important thing, after all.

    The elite of the dem party are well educated and they think that entitles them to rule everyone else. The dem party has several components. You have the masses who are like children-they want parents to take care of them and make tough decisions for them. The people who pretend to be the parents because they want that power are the leaders. Then you have a third group-the rebellious teenagers. They whine about authority because they pretend they know all there is to know. They are the ones who often bash the rich and think those who are successful cheated to get there.

    This board has only a few of the children and almost none of the would be parents. But we have lots of the teenagers or college kids who pretend to be independent but are not

    I have yet to hear a rational argument supporting the utter excrement of wickard v. filburn. Its one of the most harmful and disgusting decisions in supreme court history. Its long term impact was far worse than the dred scott decision

    No arguments.

    Are you calling Barack Obama a liar?

    He said that affirmative action helped him.

    He is quoted here.

    They've pretty much acknowledged that by confirming that their supporters don't know how to apply for voter ID.
