    Liberalism is all about spending in the name of compassion yet I have yet to have a liberal explain to me what is compassionate about govt. dependence and a 17 trillion dollar debt?
    And they have absolutely nothing to show for all this compassion and in fact there seems to be less of it around then there was just a couple of decades ago. Only recently has it been claimed that raising taxes was a sign of compassion.

    Previous governments would never have gotten away with a silly excuse like that.

    I think a public hanging is appropriate. If not then the rest of their lives in a windowless 8x10 cell.

    I am beginning to understand the French Revolution now.

    I will settle for winning the Article V fight and getting rid of them.

    The Article V fight is one last push to get the state legislatures to bypass the national government to restore the nation to its Constitutional heritage.

    Thank you. Yes, I am aware what Article V is. I was not aware of any real effort to employ it at this time. Could you link or describe any of these ongoing efforts?

    There is a Mount Vernon meeting on December 7th. All over the nation people are calling upon their state legislatures to petition the Congress to appoint a date. Some people believe this fight could take decades. I am not so sure. It could happen very quickly.

    Here is one coordinating web site.
