And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer. . . .--Benjamin Franklin, On the Price of Corn and Management of the Poor, November 1766
    Nice. Multiple likes for Ben.

    This was bullying by the federal government. The offenders were in a subcontracted janitorial service. But the subcontractors don't have deep pockets so the Feds, a crime syndicate, went after Walmart.

    This would have been clear to you if you were interested enough to seek the truth.

    I know this is hard for you to understand but the main role of the Federal Govt. is PROVIDING for the Common Defense but I don't see an answer to the Question as to what dependence on the Federal Govt have the Republicans initiated?

The founders anticipated this. That is why Article V was written to give the state legislatures to call for a convention of states to propose amendments independent of the federal government.

    I am in my 60s. It would probably take 20 distinguished years to get there. It will be too late. This nation will end long before I get to a position to help.

    Interestingly I just looked. Your post was to no one in particular. The quote mechanism, poor as it is, can help maintain context if context is intended.

    There's defense, and then there is excessive government force against the rights and liberties of the people. I know it's hard for you to understand. From the War on Drugs to the War on Terror, Republicans have used fear mongering to expand their power and act against the People. It's a way to make people dependent upon the government for every little thing. Before you know it, 1 person gets ebola and people are trained to freak out and run to the government.

    The main role of the Federal Government is to uphold and proliferate our rights and liberties. Common defense is but a piece of that bigger picture. I know that's hard for you to understand.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
