    Regardless of the role of the military, there is a major difference between it and education, on the Constitutional front.....

    The US Military is (for the most part) directly and specifically provided for in Article I, Section 8 of the US Constitution. Nowhere in that section does the word "education", "school" or anything of the sort appear. In other words, the US Military has a Constitutional Mandate while the Department of Education DOES NOT.

    Well, there goes any miniscule chance he had at being a VP nominee.

    Seriously, his fellow Republicans had to have a face-palm moment when he said that.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.

    So a Constitutionally approved social program is fine?

    If there was such a thing (which thankfully there is not), YES.

    I would have much less trouble with MOST of the current budget if those items had been added to Article I, Section 8 via Constitutional Amendment rather than simply by legislative activism.

    The liberals are just upset that someone actually recognized their true color. The color for the Democrats should be Red, not blue, as Red is the color of socialism/communism. They are upset because they have worked hard creating the liberal label to hide their socialist agenda since socialism/communism has created such a negative view of the true left. However, any reasonable comparison of the Democrats recent agendas and Marxist goals under socialism will show that the two match up very well.

    Just, just facepalm. Ignoring the history of using those two colors, thinking that democrats=communists,

    Man, I wish there were any Socialists in the House... Of course, I also wish that the majority of Americans actually understood what Socialism is and what Socialists like myself actually want and support. But we all wish for things that probably won't come true.

    Perhaps we will see how "flexible" he can be after the next election.

    Don't be such a pessimist.

    Barrack Obama wasn't.
