    Believe it or not but they were well aware of doctors and teachers. Are you asserting that they were not or simply forgot to address them? I am asserting that they were fully aware of many private professions and services but purposefully did not give the federal government any special powers over them.

    And... get away with what? Benghazigate? Who gives a ****?

    Well considering medicine was in its infancy at that point, I am not sure what the hell you are talking about. Please, tell me what the founding fathers had to say about HMOs? Preexisting conditions? Birth control?

    Are you being serious right now? Am I talking to an actual human being?

    3) He killed Osama bin Laden
    4) He's been insanely aggressive against terrorism
    5) He hasn't raised taxes

    Yes, you didn't get everything you want out of the executive branch for the past 6 years, but to freak out like he's Stalin, that's insane. Most things he would have wanted to do, he couldn't do because of the obstructionist Congress. So relax and grow up, buddy.
    I'm still waiting for him to declare himself dictator-for-life, which they were saying he would do. Taking him long enough, you would have thought that before the whole "re-election thing" would have been the time. Would have saved himself some money at least.

    Yep, until it no longer did then they were forced to accept the will of the rest - leaving (seceding?) was never an option.

    You think the Clinton impeachment was about sex and not committing perjury to a Grand Jury? Jonathan Gruber had you lot pegged!

    Whether you care or not is irrelevant... I simply asked you if Obama gets away with rewriting federal law without being held legally responsible, does that mean in your estimation he did nothing wrong?

    Or put another way, do you assess right & wrong, and judge the morality of a persons actions from a legal perspective?

    Yep and poverty was in its infancy at that point as well so "welfare" got left out.
