    Haymarket wants everyone to be his tax slave and if you refuse you are a traitor and unamerican or unpatriotic, or whatever other old ass guilt trip from the beginning of the century he wants to throw up.

    It boggles my mind why someone in one state would feel as if he has any legitimate claim on the sovereign people of another state. Some people just want to be the boss of the world.

    You make the fundamental error of attributing to those folks a quality they do not possess.

    That is just nonsense. I want no slaves.

    People who would destroy the USA label themselves as unamerican and unpatriotic by their views and their actions.

    The problem with some on the far right is that they refuse to accept that they live in a society with 311 million other people and they are not the law unto themselves.

    It is difficult to tell from your usual enigmatic flippant shorthand drive-by response what exactly you mean...... I imagine you are confusing the PERFECT with SAFE. Sorry, but that just does not fly.

    So please enlighten us as the the libertarian plan to both abolish the FDA and provide safe medicines and drugs for 311 million people.

    311 million? Don't you mean more like 6 billion? Or do you think the 311 million are a law unto themselves?

    The 'union' or the USA, is not patriotic in and of itself. 'Union' alone is not synonomous with good.

    To be part of a union just to be part of a union is not good or patriotic.

    The 'union' must be established on principles agreed on and to live by. A Constitution. One can remain part of the 'union' and be against the Constitution and be traitor. Just as the North did. One can leave the union but be patriotic toward the union because they are supporting the Constitution.

    Just because one secedes doensn't make them the traitor. Union for the sake of union is stupid. It must be based on law. And when that law is ignored by a major section then they have destroyed the union because they cease to proved others their rights under the agreed law. That is not union. That is treason.
