Scalia To Student: If Taxes Go Too High ‘Perhaps You Should Revolt’

Knoxville, Tenn. (CBS DC) – Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told a crowd of law school students that if taxes in the U.S. become too high then people “should revolt.”

Speaking at the University of Tennessee College of Law on Tuesday, the longest-serving justice currently on the bench was asked by a student about the constitutionality of the income tax, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports.

Scalia responded that the government has the right to implement the tax, “but if it reaches a certain point, perhaps you should revolt.”

Tennessee Wants to Ban the U.N. From Monitoring Its Elections

When you think of the type of countries the United Nations might want to keep an eye on, you probably think of, say, Libya, whose citizens voted for the first time in over 40 years in 2012.

But newly democratized countries aren't the only subjects of U.N. election oversight. In 2012, civil-rights groups voiced their concern to the U.N. that state voter-ID laws would lead to voter suppression. The U.N. sent 44 of its election monitors to states—including Tennessee—and drew much ire from conservative groups in the process.

For those in TN and the surrounding states

The CONSTITUTION PARTY is having a National meeting soon, check www.CONSTITUTIONPARTY.com for details.

A National meeting means people from all over the country, or whoever is able to make it. For those not on a bordering state, it may still be worthwhile to attend. Remember, Ron Paul endorsed Chuck Baldwin, the CP candidate and V. Goode was included in the Free and Equal debate. There is always the possibility that acceptable people will present themselves from the D/ R, but if what doesn't happen, CP is a back-up.

Vote Lamar Alexander out Joe Carr in!

Will Tennesseans unite and vote for Joe Carr? Or, are we a bunch of wimps because they say he has too much money backing him. So What!

We need feet on the ground. Tell every person you know about his horrible voting record. The best article I found was "Senator Lamar Alexander’s Fishy Voting Record" from the RedState website showing his terrible voting record which I will be passing around.

A question that I need answered

During the 2008 and 2012 election the media was in a foaming frenzy to label Dr. Paul a Libertarian, the talking heads could not use the word enough, the status quo right wing labeled him as such, as well as the redstater's and Breitbart's alternative neo-liberal sites (posing as conservative) wanted to put the label on Dr. Paul, yet he had not run on the Libertarian ticket and was voted in as a Republican from Texas.

My question is during the 2008 and 2012 election cycle, who identified themselves as a Republican versus Libertarian? Be honest and simply state Republican or Libertarian.
