    Fortunately, most Conservatives reject overt Racism.

    Racial Discrimination is one of the areas where Classical Liberals will never agree with Conservatives.

    A black man once told me that the most racist people were in the North where they hid it behind niceties.
    Liberals don’t care what you do, as long as it’s compulsory.

    That black man was probably right.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    I am not African American -- I do not know who is more racist.

    I have studied American Slavery primarily in comparison with Russian Serfdom. On one hand American Slaves had much much higher work obligations. On the other hand Russian Serfs were much more numerous.

    I do not know how central was Slavery to American Economy and History.

    In Russia, Poland, Hungary, and the rest of East Europe, Serfdom was very central. In Russia, about 50% of peasants were serfs. About 40% of serfs were only under extra tax obligations -- they were closer to being free then serfs with work obligations.

    About 50% of serfs had labor obligation. During most of XVIIIth Century, this obligation was equal to 35-40% of their work time. By 1850, obligation grew to about 50% of work time. American slaves had about 2-3 times greater obligation in terms of work hours. Nevertheless, the lives of serfs were miserable.


    Nobility was a small class of serf-owners. They lived in luxury. They liked fine arts. Many of them were poets, writers, musicians.

    It was for a time central to England's economy even after they banned it because they profited greatly from the Triangular Trade route.

    A person in our community had a house fire recently. Members of the community we're much more helpful than the government.

    Give people a little credit.

    That is because those places are centrally located.

    Free public schools are not free. I pay a huge amount for schools I do not use.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.
