Hmmm could be…

    The Founders knew that government functions best at local and regional levels and vested the greatest power there; the ongoing seizure of that power by the federal government is both unconstitutional and malevolent. When all three branches are operating in direct opposition to the constitution, the people have the right and the duty to protect themselves and their country.

    • We are over over governed, over regulated, over taxed, and over every thinged.

      Small Government is a less fearsome beast than Big Government.

        Mark Levin’s book “The Liberty Amendments” proposes a solution to US federal government overreach using “Article Five” of their Constitution through which a majority of States can force a national constitution convention.

        Call it a velvet revolution. And yes, we have the same problem in Canada.

          Canada’s constitution was never set up to limit government the way the US one was, and it’s leading us to the same place the US is going.

            Dint make no nevermind nohow, didit?

          • Exile1981

            didn’t make a difference, no it didn’t.
            I heard a funny the other day about how the US founding fathers if they were here now would have already started shooting and the comments was how that was false, they would have already finished shooting and be rebuilding.

            3%. Amazing, isn’t it?

          Maybe we can come together and put all our leftists in one place and leave the rest of North American for the sane people…..

    The Founders knew that the Federal Gov’t should handle the big items, and purposely left everything else to the states, which is why we have states. Indiana too conservative? Go to New York.

    Said Jefferson, “A revolution is like a thunderstorm; it clears the air.” He also said, “When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

    In the past few years the notion that rights even exist has nearly died. We no longer have rights, we have privileges begrudgingly lent to us by the govt which reserves the authority to amend of revoke them at will.

      There is only one right currently recognized: the right for libtards to not be offended, and that covers everything.

      • Blacksmith

        I would slightly amend your statement to leftards instead of libtards but I do concur.

          Either way they are the two bastard sons of progressivism.

    • Clausewitz

      The problem is that the left now claims that everything is a right, and because of this the idea of actual rights has been watered down and rendered useless.

    I’m surprised it hasn’t happened already. They have a hell of a lot more grievances now than they ever did in 1776.

    • Clausewitz

      Indeed. The governance without representation of today makes King George look like a sweetheart. Came across a new one today. The Oregon government wants to tax internet streaming. So basically they want to tax your internet use a second time considering they already tax your cost of your IP provider. Bet that will be a hell of a lot more than the 2 cent stamp tax.

    Actually yes, it is actually past time.
