in larger numbers, I will agree with each and every one of you. Until that time I am reminded of a particular quote "Conviction is a luxury for those on the sidelines..." In other words... It's easy to maintain a strong belief or opinion if you are not affected by the end result of it.
Where is this ardent belief in charity if you, or anyone like you is unwilling or unable to provide it...
So it's every person for themselves, with the mantra being "I've got mine, the hell with you!" And this ideology is different than any other HOW!?! You are no different than Romney preaching austerity for those in need and bailouts and welfare for the elite. Same difference.
Crony capitalist have unlimited rights, the government has unlimited rights, multinational corporations have unlimited rights, and the people have NO rights?
The flaw in your argument is that an unenforced Constitution has the same effect as NO constitution at all! And if the government exists to provide protection for the elite of society against the people, then what is the point of having any government at all...
If the government does not exist to protect the people and their unalienable rights, then it is illegitimate and should be abolished. If not directly than indirectly with non violent non compliance and dissent.
If the founders believed in working within the corrupt system to overthrow it, they never would have written the Declaration of Independence, nor fought the Crown to make it stick! They would have taken "the long view" and become a part of the aristocracy to "influence it from within", which is just as ludicrous now as it would have been then. And nothing would have changed.
Of course that doesn't matter because the Crown Corporation has run this country since the Revolution and our representatives are merely administrators of the Crown corporation, carrying out the Bankers agenda. Just like our representatives are trustees of the Bankruptcy since 1933. They do not take orders from us, and they never did. That is why no matter who you elect... nothing changes.
