    Obviously.

    What accomplishments? He never got us out of the Depression and he got us into a war that killed hundreds of thousands.

    he also destroyed the proper limits on the federal government and raped the tenth amendment

    can anyone honestly claim that the commerce clause was intended to be a basis for federal gun control or to prevent people from smoking dope they grow on their own property?

    That was near the beginning of the horrible abuse of that clause. Now they use it for everything.

    Well what would you define as "just compensation"?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
