    I haven't misinterpreted anything and Madison's Federalist Paper #45 proves so. I suggest you give it a read. The purpose of the Constitution is to divide the power between the federal and the state to insure the protection of individuals and their rights, not the protection of tortoises, spotted owls, frogs or any other environmental whim of special interest groups or for political favors. What is going on with federal land grabs is the result of not adhering to our laws and allowing an Authoritarian federal government to exist and it needs to stop.

    Of coursw you do. Obama could call a press conference, admit to eveything and you would claim he's being intimidated by the Republicans, because they're all racist, sexists and homophobes.

    Should we be at all surprised that you're not convinced?

    Let me know when he's charged. Until then your whining is pointless.

    The Federalist is a sales brochure. It was written to convince the citizens of New York to ratify the Constitution. Like all sales brochures it's full of puffery and exaggerations. It no more proves the meaning of the Constitution than a Ford brochure proves anything about a Chevrolet.

    The Constitution says little or nothing about individual rights because that was not its purposes. It sets-up a government to, among other things, provide for the general welfare. If the general welfare is thought to include tortoises, owls and frogs they can be protected.
    Proud to be a tax and spend leftist.

    Proud supporter of the real Second Amendment.
