    No. Is it supposed to be 'alot?'

    It probably wouldnt be called 'minimum' wage if it was.

    Nobody short of a Kennedy-type is "financially ready" to start a family. That's a simple-minded statement --- at best.

    Yes, because everyone can just immediately uproot their lives and move somewhere else! And on top of that moving is 100% free!

    I see you're still quoting one-sided opinions on what the contract says instead of the letter of the contract itself.

    Then you obviously need to read the Constitution itself instead of those one-sided opinions you keep basing your arguments on. Sorry, the CONTRACT is the law, not some dead guy's opinion of what it was "supposed" to mean. There were 55 signers of 13 states (well, technically, colonies at the time) and you base your arguments on the opinion of less than a tenth of them. Wake up and smell the law.

    show me where in the federal constitution.... where government is given power to limit /restrict the people..

    it is government restricted by the constitution not the people.

    i need to read?, your saying.....i guess that means you have read it then.

    again, show me where government is given authority over the people......

    it silly to say the founders threw off the king, to put a federal government on their backs.

    A completely free market is nothing more than a system of slavery. Shackles and bars can be forged just as much of money as they can of iron or steel. The only way capitalism becomes workable is to fetter it. Even Adam Smith had no illusions about that.

    We've been through this argument at least three times already and you've hit a wall each and every time. I'm not going down that useless road again. Dig yourself out of the first three, then get back to me.



    The Federalist papers are not now and never have been the law. Citing them as the law is disingenuous at best.
