The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    I think Republican's in the house are going to have to man up now and actually refuse to fund it. I think they're all shaking in their boots, Dems and Rep alike at the notion that they will actually have to picka side on this one.

    You're going to re-write the constitution to where the government can't tax people at all? That's ridiculous.

    Black Americans benefit at the expense of the diminishing number of White Americans. White Americans with good health care will find their healthcare degraded in order to improve the health care of Black people. Black people love big govt. because it gives them things.

    How so? Pretty sure that there's Federal property in your state. Seceding doesn't change ownership..


    I want my state to secede from this nation, as it has completely abandoned the rule of law and its founding principles. The entity tasked with upholding the rule of law has been grossly negligent for nearly a century. The system is completely broken.
    What is it about Libertarians that you all think you're more of a Constitutional scholar than the Supreme Court? These people have studied this sort of thing their whole lives...

    Well to be fair he doesn't believe in freedom at all let alone taxes.

    He has stated on many occasions he would resort to mass killings and mass deportations to get his way.
