    It wasn't something they did on accident. Just like it was no accident they said the welfare clause allowed welfare. The courts have been a very successful tool to grow government authority.

    Can't argue with that.

    Well, unless you loathe the interstate highway system, radio and television, clean air, clean water, social safety nets, regulations to protect you from predatory business practices, a boarder patrol, the preservation of our national parks, the ability to send a letter clean across the US for 50 cents, a national weather service to warn you of imminent danger, inspectors to ensure your food is safe, etc., etc., etc.. Then in that regard, I suspect you too are glad that our government hasn't remained the size that it was in 1803.

    In those ways, it is good. In other ways, it is not. There are some things that need reform in this country, but otherwise the things you mentioned are not bad. Although stamp prices have gone up a little high, but then again everyone and his brother has email now.

    Yes they were but you choose not to believe. Par for the course though.

    Although I agree that some things the federal government does are not good, I'm curious as to what things you think those are. Most of the other stuff is handled by the states. And the feds step in generally when a citizen of that state feels their rights have been oppressed by a state.

    The pony express would carry your letter across the country for ten dollars in the mid 1850's, and it would take a couple of weeks!! What's that in today's money, $300.00? The price of stamps haven't gone up.

    Denial of the facts is par for the course for the anti South crowd. That much we know.
