    IIRC, when Reagan took office the national debt was 900 billion and 8 years later it was 2.3 trillion. Has the country had any meaningful gains in economic metrics not fueled by government spending. 20 trillion and counting makes us dead beat losers, IMO. Anyone still clinging to trickle down voodoo because some of our politicians are still enamored by the idea.

    Well you still have to work, you can’t just sit on your hind end and collect tax cuts if you aren’t making money to begin with. Thats the whole problem with libs, something for nothing mentality

    Yogi,

    The 14th Amendment gives the central government unlimited power. That unlimited power comes from section 1 of the 14th Amendment, in the name of making access equal the government can trump any and all pre existing laws or precedent.

    What you are raising hell about is the slow evolution of the republic from one “of liberty” to one “of equality”. That is the Jacobin spirit of the French, not American, Revolution.

    The initial effort to blunt this evolution took place with the legal secession of the lower southern states in 1861. The upper south followed only after Lincoln indicated he would violate the sovereign states by applying powers never granted him by the states or the constitution.

    Yes, that pesky 14th amendment…

    Amendment XIV

    Section 1.

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    And those good natured southern states just fighting for what makes America great…

    Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery– the greatest material interest of the world. Its labor supplies the product which constitutes by far the largest and most important portions of commerce of the earth. These products are peculiar to the climate verging on the tropical regions, and by an imperious law of nature, none but the black race can bear exposure to the tropical sun. These products have become necessities of the world, and a blow at slavery is a blow at commerce and civilization.

    Off the top of my head I can’t guess which Fireeater you cited, I could frankly care less but maybe you’d do well to see if the 14th Amendment was actually adopted on the “up and up”.

    But beyond that you are saying, so girls that think they are boys should use the boys rest rooms in BFE because a bunch of yankee traders sold blacks captured in tribal warfare to groups of capital investors in the large alluvial soil areas of the southeast 200 plus years ago?

    Or sodomy is protected and men can marry men and women, women because of slavery?

    Far fetched for sure, insane without a doubt.

    Now if we can only indoctrinate the newborn, we can make America great again.

    America never was great.

    In fact if someone came into a room telling you how great they were you’d announce them to be the biggest asshole in the world.

    Just leave other folks alone and mind your own business cause you know sodomy is legal because of the sins of slavery.

    Maybe sodomy is legal because it’s nobody’s business what consenting adults do in the privacy of their own home.

    It’s legal because of the 14th Amendment, nice try there Buck Rogers.

    The Supreme Court wiped out the laws of sovereign states based on, as evidenced by your citation of slavery, section 1 of the 14th Amendment.

    Sodomy and usury, hand in hand.

    Roll back sodomy laws, roll back financial regulation = a terrible screwing*
