    This all puts the middle class into a position of weakness, of dependency, and you all support cutting the cord and sending them into the abyss as a solution.
    So, in your view, it's everyone's fault except for the individual. That's an interesting concept...

    Hiding behind the constitution is for those that have no true argument to stand up on its own. Its our country now, we don't need long dead men to tell us how to run it, what are we incompetent?

    If you want to revolt against our form of government... Oh wait, you're already doing that...

    Apparently you are incompetent. Otherwise you'd be able to live within your means and there'd be fewer people dependent on government.

    So you suggest we go around telling people "be better than you are now" and it will fix everything? The people are who they are, they're not going to spontaneously morph into something more powerful to fix increasingly burdening circumstances. Most people are sheep, those of us that are able bodied are supposed to tend to the flock and see it to better times, not exploit them and call ourselves superior.

    Don't worry about me I'm doing just fine. If I were in the business of taking advantage of people I'd be working on that right now.

    Is it impossible for you to imagine a country with strong government that functions well? If you can't, take a look at the Nordic countries and some of their neighbors. They've created a wealthy, progressive utopia.

    No, humans are not inherently shepherds, we are individuals with an instinct for survival and seeking self interest until that is removed by another, more powerful force...

    So you want to exploit your fellow man for your personal gain? That's fine but stop pretending you care about the country, you care about yourself and you will destroy your fellow American for it.
