    LOL.
    No. Fad art has never been an area of interest when choosing a book to read.

    Ah. Lacking erudition and proud of it. Keep up the good work, knowledge be damned.

    Since your negative reply concerned reading Bastiat, then I suspect Fred was intended.

    I hate to assume. Perhaps the poster was speaking of The Law, but it's not clear that that was what he/she was referring to in his/her cheesy dodge. So if whining about everything as "plunder " is where the retard was going with that, why not just say that?

    "Retard" is a pejorative term not used in polite society.

    A pity. It would help you to avoid such obvious mistakes.

If you continue to fail to understand the difference, you will loose this debate. First, the federal gov't is charged with creating and regulating our monetary supply... is that not economic? Second, the federal gov't is charged with regulating interstate commerce. Is that not economic? Outside of that, those things enumerated in the constitution, all other facets fall under the direction of local and state. Your view is myopic opinion and nothing more. Preserving this construct IS conservative. Trying to alter it is PROGRESSIVE. I would say you are ignorant your own thin veil.

    Government is the cause of that. We are over taxed, over regulated and ruled without our consent. Your beliefs are not classical conservatism. They are thinly veiled progressivism.
    Right, because over regulation caused every financial meltdown in our history... oh wait... reverse that. Modern conservatives have been sold a false bill of goods in thinking ANY regulation is bad. It's not.

    The foundations of the republican party were conservative (keeping the lessons and wisdom of the past) progressive (using that wisdom to advance social, financial and gov't).

    Are we feeling pedantic today? Okay. Promoting the general welfare by establishing general rules for us all to live by is acceptable. One-hundred thousand pages of regulations covering every aspect of our existence is tyranny. The key word to consider is interference.

    Wrong. First, you are again blurring the line between federal charter and local/state. If you continue to fail to understand the difference, you will loose this debate.
    Nonsense. Other than broad, general rules to promote business no part of government has the right or the obligation to impose itself on businesses. It is clear that that with all of your School-Ma'arm charm that no general sweeping statements will do. We have gone well beyond any reasonable level of interference at every level from local through the states and especially at the federal level.

    First, the federal gov't is charged with creating and regulating our monetary supply... is that not economic?
    If it is promoting the general welfare it fits. When it goes beyond to propping up regimes to influence the outcome of elections it has moved toward tyranny.

    Second, the federal gov't is charged with regulating interstate commerce. Is that not economic?
    Again, when done for promoting the general welfare and to prevent the states from predatory behavior toward one another the federal government is within its rights. When it uses this power to regulate every facet of our lives then the federal government has gone way too far and the federal government needs to butt out.

    Outside of that, those things enumerated in the constitution, all other facets fall under the direction of local and state.
    This is why every level of government must be constrained by written and adhered to constitutions or charters. Governments do not have free reign to do whatever they want to to us. When they come to believe they do they must be corrected. When that is no longer possible the tyrants must be overthrown.

    Your view is myopic opinion and nothing more. Preserving this construct IS conservative. Trying to alter it is PROGRESSIVE. I would say you are ignorant your own thin veil.
    You are quite simply wrong. Preserving a tyrannical status quoe is not conservative. It is tyrannical. It is statist. Returning to limited government is conservative. Perhaps you are a wolf in sheeps clothing. Tyranny, statism, liberalism, progressivism all fit your intent.

    Right, because over regulation caused every financial meltdown in our history... oh wait... reverse that. Modern conservatives have been sold a false bill of goods in thinking ANY regulation is bad. It's not.
    Why do you feel the need to make so many false statements? Are you insecure? Our government first causes the problem and then rides in to fix it setting the stage for even worse conditions in the future.

    The foundations of the republican party were conservative (keeping the lessons and wisdom of the past) progressive (using that wisdom to advance social, financial and gov't).
    Mush.
