    The Depression was caused by Woodrow Wilson and the Federal Reserve.

    When you learn enough history to admit this fact, come back.

    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.
    Are you kidding? More people are going to college now than before, one reason is because of government subsidy.

    And....yes, ohmigod, didn't I say people can't afford to go to college unless they have Big Brother Government helping them?

    Explain why I should pay for someone to go to school to learn "political science" or "photography". It simply does not put money in my pocket.

    You are aware, aren't you (probably not) that because of the government subsidies college tuitions have grown steadily at a rate three to four times that of inflation annually over the last twenty-five years, right?

    But the students graduating are dumber and dumber every year. Clearly wasted money.

    I'd like to address this if I could. The Constitution does mention "General Welfare" but where I think that liberals, or I should say "Progressives" confuse the issue is that that clause was never meant to be a catch all for anything, and everything that the people wanted to vote themselves from the Treasury. When that happens then the society, and the nation dies.

    Instead the enumerated powers specifically laid out by Article 1, Section 8 are what Congress can vote to spend on. What we have now with all this subjective interpretation of the founding document, that is written out in plain English, and understandable is the fundamental changing of the country.

    What if half the people don't want the country fundamentally changed in this manner? That is the message I believe was sent in the MA special election BTW. Do they count? Or, is it now a tyranny of the simple majority?

    So that is all it is about for you? Money in your pocket? But everyone else is greedy though, right?

    We need a sarcasm button on the menu.
