    Really? Perhaps you will join me then in calling for the elimination of every department and agency that is not explicitly called for in the US Constitution?

    I wish you protesters and down-with-gov types would quit screwing up my gravy train.


    Seriously, trying to cit-arrest Rumsfield? Ten points for style... minus several hundred for stupidity. Try to cit-arrest cops? Um yeah, rots of ruck with that.


    I've got a decent job and a decent home and a decent life and don't really feel too oppressed mostly, so just leave me the frack alone and quit trying to bring the whole edifice down around our ears. Anarchy isn't the answer.

    You hold the government accountable with your vote.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    This could be a sign of the people getting sick enough of the government to make some drastic changes - hopefully at the ballot box instead of in-the-streets. If you don't think in-the-streets can happen in the US you'd better do some research on the civil rights movement and what ended the Vietnam war. It was intense and bloody. Any of the new crooners and rappers singing about injustice and revolutions these days?

    Then all of the U.S. government is criminal in your view, is that right?

    There's much and more I'd eliminate, including TSA and HLS. Along with things such as War Power Act. Extremely limited Fed, no subsidies to Wall Street, no tax incentives to large corporations, no tax breaks for people having kids, etc. All the crap that gets subsidized on the tax payer dime.

    Not always, sometimes you do so with a gun. Not saying that's the place we're quite in just yet. But the right to replace broken government with one better able to serve the rights and liberties of the individual does belong to the People.

    Much of how the government currently operates would be beyond the power granted to it by the People. Not all, because there is necessity for government and power which is properly granted to the government.

    BTW, your attitude is one the founders worried about in bringing about the end of the Republic. When people are more concerned about the comforts than the never ending battle for liberty.
