    Most of the forefathers didn't like the idea of political parties.

    I'm not sure exactly what that second sentence was intended to mean, however, I voted "other", and stated I can see some merit in the idea.

    Now you're just arguing against voting altogether.

    You accused me of fascism and created hyperbolic strawmen. If you do that in the context of reacting emotionally to an imagined position rather than rationally to an actually presented one, I'm going to point that out to you.
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    I don't recall ever suggesting anything like that.

    senators received their appointment to the senate by the state legislature.......just like you vote for your congressman he is supposed to be someone who represents you.

    the senator was picked by the state legislature, and represents them....

    he votes on how his state directs him to vote, if not he would be asked to resign, and will not be reappointed to that position....i know of no senator appointed more then twice in the 18 century.

    the senator was picked from among his own legislature, who knows the people of that legislature and the problems of the state....that is what under "mixed government" why the senate is referred to as aristocracy.

    the duty of the states is to preserve their state powers , place a check on federal power expansion by knowing and understanding the bills coming before the senate.....and to block the collective captivity of the people in the house.

    ....and that is when we had Robber Barons. A much cheaper way for them to control the system.

    Not really. I'm arguing for a government of limited scope that doesn't heed the peoples call for government action when it reaches beyond the governments set scope. If liberals and conservatives for that matter respected the borders of their control we wouldn't have the situation rabbit described in the first place.

    Bad assumption. I would have a problem with them voting no matter what.

    That is a irrelevant question. No one would give their pin number to anyone regardless of how trust worthy that person is or isn't.
    It's totally relevant. If you don't trust them with your pin number, then why do you trust them with deciding how much of your income is taken, or to decide your rights, or whether you are guilty of a crime.

    Using that logic those who support outsourcing shouldn't be allowed to vote seeing how outsourcing takes jobs away from Americans and has a negative impact on their pocket book. Those who support Israel shouldn't be allowed to vote seeing how we give some our tax dollars to that country.Those who think we should help those in the middle east against ISIS should not be allowed to vote seeing how that will cost us money.Those who want border security should not be allowed to vote seeing how that costs us money.Those who want amnesty should not be allowed to vote seeing how they will effect the wages of Americans who work those jobs. People who want police, fire departments and other infrastructure shouldn't be allowed to vote seeing how those things cost us money.People who want public roads should not be allowed to vote seeing how those things cost us money to build and maintain. I could go on and on about things that cost tax payers money.
    Now you're getting it. This is why the Founding Fathers so vehemently opposed democracy.

    Oh, and this quote by him describes minarchism. I don't know if that is what he supported, but that is what it describes none the less.






    So true. It's sad, but states only ever get more powerful and more oppressive as they age.
    Until the next revolution at least partly cleanses them. If history has taught us anything, it is that there will always be a next revolution.
    Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
