    That ignores the reality that democrats actually push for LESS and LESS government in many areas of our nations life. As to dependency, I have repeatedly said, and others have joined in also, that we do NOT want one person dependent on the government and strongly favor a nation where there is not one person who is on welfare or other such programs.

    uh pushing for states to recognize gay marriage is hardly less government and the fact is its the dems who need people to be dependent on government.

    Are you telling me that the first three words of America's most important document is psychobabble??

    Tell me what other lines of the Constitution are psychobabble?

    What other parts of the constitution needs to be changed because it cannot be interpreted as "fairness". fairness to who?

    Maybe after the Constitution gets uhh replaced with "fairness , we could work on the bill of rights or those amendments huh?lol

    Are you sure you are an American, because I gotta tell you a lot of American blood has helped pay for what you call PSYCHOBABBLE.

    OMG??? What was I thinking of course I pity the rich , those poor rich who ride in limos run companies anyway they want and if they start to lose profits go to the government for bailout money.
    Of course my heart bleeds for the poor rich who get taxed for being rich and get a tax refund for paying taxes.
    Of course I feel sorry for the rich , out here you steal a hundred dollars it's 1 to 5.
    The rich steal millions and if caught go to Camp MED, out here it's some rathole.
    Of courese I'm almost in tears at the thought of the rich having to hire another accountant to count their money and the lawyers they keep on retainer plus bodyguards well I gotta stop now I,I,, I'M GETTING ALL CHOKED UP. LOL,LOL,LOL

    some people would look at getting government out of our lives as less government.

    No what is psychobabble is your idiotic attempts to use those words to justify the government-through force-seizing the property of the productive to give it to the unproductive, the lazy and the untalented
