    So there it is. The leftist view, supported by many is the states are mere appendages of the Federal government, subservient. The Constitution may be ignored and is ignored. The Welfare clause no longer means the non-defense articles. It means the government can do as it pleases.

    This is why we live in a soft tyranny.

    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Preseidents who take on the federal reserve don't tend to fair well. I think this is a little like the "Who's the best Quarterback of all time" It's fun to discuss but there really is no answer. Times, rules, expectations, technology and team mates all change and all are intricate parts of who is "the best"
    Fiscally, I can tell you rather objectively that the last two have been the worst. They also made war of 13 of their sixteen years. Cliton was a clown, but under his admin. we at least balanced 1 budget.
    But I guess I'll do with washington because he was the first and got to guide us as an actual Constitutional Republic before that all started to change.

    How Many people have died? Cream puff nation.
    It is amazing to me the Dems haven't and can't seem to figure out why Trump was elected. Why they lost the middle Blue Voters. Here is one big reason. The BIG TENT PARTY isn't so big anymore. Middle Blue Collar dems are not accepted because they don't agree with the left wing. They are attacked and ridiculed in today's Dem party. One is not allowed to disagree. The whole selling point of the Dem Party was the ability to differ. Not anymore.

    It's not just the left , both "sides" see the BOR's as a pick and choose menu. One "side" intrudes upon gun rights, the other upon due process and both upon free speech and states rights for example.
    However the further we stray from the Constitution the worse things get and that dosn't even meet the donkephants self serving definition of "general welfare".
