has not benefited EVERYONE'S liberty -- only a few.
The Upper 6% of Whites owned the Slaves in the South.
The Upper 8% of Whites set policy in 1790.
The Upper 8% (mostly whites but no longer exclusive) set policy 2013.
The Dollar (the valuation mechanism of all assets) *according to Ron Paul* has fallen every year since 1912 and more so since 2000 -- even faster since 2007.
Either that is a true statement or it is not -- that our freedoms are less.
That means that all efforts to today have failed -- in "real" terms.
Why would you identify with wasted effort and become emotional?
My efforts have failed to get people (on the DP) to see that NOT EVERYONE was free in 1790 -- thus STOP HARKING BACK to that era as an era of freedom.
My efforts have failed to show that every Founding Father (President and Congress) have CIRCUMVENTED the Constitution -- all the way up till today -- People still hero-worship the Founders.
I don't identify with my failures -- I just acknowledge them and look for new approaches.
I had NO IDEA this thread would strike such a sensitive chord -- otherwise I would have written it in 2008.
*&^ Constitution --- Constitutional Rationality
