    You should call the cops on them. Since it's the law, the cops should be able to arrest them.

    All FDR managed to do was smash the recovery and create a recession inside a government created depression, and his failures lasted a full decade.
    How would you explain the fact that when FDR caved into the idea to reduce the defecit, by reducing government spending, the economy went deeper into a recession?

    BTW, if FDR obeyed the constitution in 1941, we might be speaking german right now.

    The Constitution does mention General Welfare which would include healthcare..

    The Constitution doesn't cover Rebuilding Nations, ergo the government should tell Iraq to rebuild themselves.

    The Constitution doesn't cover welfare to other Nations thus the Govt should tell Israel to piss off.

    The nation was going to go into further depression anyway, since FDR was stealing gold and destroying farm produce (while people in cities were going hungry) to maintain prices.

    Explain how destroying wealth creates wealth.

    Since "healthcare" isn't a problem for the federal government only retards and greedy fools want to give the government the power to interfere in health care.
    Subsidizing health care is interfering? We probably would not have the level of care we have today if the government did not heavily subsidize health care. Of course that also is what contributes to the rising cost, more people using it and more people living longer.

    People who aren't ignorant spend the time to learn that the words "general welfare" are not a blank check.

    So you're wrong on the most important issue, right on two others.

    Work on it, and someday you might become an American, if you can get rid of those silly socialist ideas of yours.

    We got into the Depression because of Repubs and their under regulations. Hoover had a hands off approach that caused more damage. Off you and those like you want a similar hands off approach after its been proven to fail.

    Why don't you ever answer my questions?

    Edit:

    FDR was taking gold because people were hoarding it. Now we have a federal program to help guard against problems like this, called FDIC.

    What's the answer I'm looking for....?

    YES!

    The government subsidized college tuition, so now no one can afford to go to college without their Big Brother in government "helping" them. Wasn't that nice of the government, to do that to us...er for us?

    You used the word "probably".

    We'd have better care today if people weren't addicted to making someone else pay for their care.

    It's amazing what people will do for themselves that they won't do if they're resting in a hammock. I mean, if people had to support their own lives, they'd probably stop voting for socialists like the Messiah and His empty promises.

    Since the Constitution does not authorize the federal government to interfere in health care, your arguments are moot. The federal government is currently in violation of the law.

    I'm sure I do.

    I do point out the failures and moral faults of socialism when I respond to you, don't I?
