    You do realize there's been legislation by Obama to put anyone on welfare. Nor has there been objective to suggest more people want to Ben on welfare. I challenge anyone show any such thing.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    ...again you refuse to tackle the issue in hand

    And everybody in this Forum has witnessed first hand WHY you cannot mount a sensible argument to support your greed based fascist ideologies

    I suppose that is why you value firearms so much

    How else could you implement the slave based fascist corpocracy upon the good people of the USA?

    This issue at hand is your ooinion of what "should" be, an opinion that you recognize you cannot back up w/ any objective argument.

    As such your opinion is no more persuasive to a thinking person than your opinion that mustard is good on strawberry ice cream.
    Thus, there's no need to mount a sensibe argument to counter your opinion becasue you have not presented a sensible argument in support of your opinion.

    I'm sorry that yo do not like the fact that you cannot present an objective argument in support of your opinion, and that, absent that objective argument, thinking people will reject your opinion out of hand - but those are the facts, and there's nothing -I- can do to change them.

    Provide for the common defense.
    Promote the general welfare.
    Provide and promote do not mean the same thing.

    FRAUD ALERT.

    Art 1. Section 8
    The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and
    Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general
    Welfare of the United States
    ; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be
    uniform throughout the United States;


    Have you ever bothered to read this thing?

    Translated: you've been shown to be totally ignorant of the Constitution and thought that the general welfare clause was only in the preamble, not Article 1's enumerated powers. But I bet you keep posting this nonsense.

    So tell us, can you see the word "promote" in this clause? I do. Look closely at the bolded text.


    Art 1. Section 8
    The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and
    Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general
    Welfare of the United States
    ; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be
