    Dude, work for his campaign. It'd probably be a great experience.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    So the bottom line is the Fair tax sucks for the middle class, and your man Cain is promoting this further attack on working people! Good luck Sister, you are going to need it to get Cain as the GOP choice for the contender!

    Politicians from that time and this time are vastly different. Politicians then, no matter the party, protected the constitution the way it was written. Politicians now try to rewrite it to fit their agenda.

    You have an imbalanced view of History. In all actuality, arguments regarding the Constitution and its correct interpretation stretch back to as far as it was written. It was easy to see it being interpreted to fit their agenda, just as it is easy enough to see so now. Lincoln, of all people, felt justified and criticized for his interpretation.

    I actually agree to a point. I just think that the politicians of today are much worse about it. The attack on the constitution didn't really start untill the 1900's in my opinion. And of course Lincoln was attacked...he was president in a civil war. He implemented martial law. He did all these things that would cost anyone now their political career.

    Yes, but...the Bank of the United States, Marshall's Marbury v. Madison decision, the Louisiana Purchase, and so on. Each represents something dramatic, but now forgotten. The point is, we are just a tad too harsh on ourselves.
