The argument isn't which President is stealing more rights or doing more harm to America.

Wow, I think I might be a libertarian. I just checked out their philosophy and platforms and their general philosophy is exactly what I stand for. I am really into their whole self-responsibility attitude. I will need to do some more research on them, but they have an awesome attitude towards things.


Yes they are interesting , and I think they prefer government from the bottom up as opposed to being autonomous .

Look up the Free State Project to see what they are up to . It won't work , but it is an interesting idea just the same . www.freestateproject.org...

"Lol Yeah but if those Slaves didnt like the Law they could just move states LOL!!!"

Slaves were not Citizens, everyone today is a Citizen, are you telling me some Citizens are going to willingly allow a vote to just make them "slaves"?

Get real.



Hence The LOL's. That was the joke for christs sake. get a sense of humor

ok... i feel like an idiot. my previous post i said 'if not for federal power we would still have slavery in some states'.... what i meant was segregation. slavery im sure involves more complex issues than states rights vs federal power. apologies for the mistake. i'm tired.

Azza you are in a thread, that discusses the core of what will one day kill tens of millions of Americans.

I leave the "jokes" to anything that has nothing to do with this particular matter.

Segregation was the fault of the Federal Government by abolishing the Constitutionally elected State Governments that emancipated the slaves, and establishing the Military governments instead.

The Southerners took their frustration out on the Blacks.

Had the Southerners simply been left to re-integrate into the Union and the Federal Government not destroyed States' Rights, more than likely the South would never have turned to racism as a political establishment.

The Southern Governments saw blacks as a threat after the 2nd reconstruction because they realized now that the Feds would use blacks in the governments down there to force Southern Politics and this indeed happend.

Besides, the Civil Rights movement was almost entirely without federal involvement until things were so shaken up that change was bound to happen.

Furthermore, since we are no longer a segregated society, the chances of us reinstituting that policy as a result of returning to States' Rights is a foolish fear.

I often out-weigh the cost of States' Rights at the humanitarian benefit, but now that we have freed the slaves and ended the segregation, it is time to return to our Union of States, or our blind faith that the Feds can protect the rights of the people will lead to our ruin.

Well, taking it from another angle, even with the LoLs it can be misleading.

There are people who still honestly believe that if the States had more power, you'd have slaves. It's so frustrating to talk to people like that, local prejudices are not solved by States or Federal governments, so neither can protect you in that sense.

but how far should states rights be extended? should we allow mainly rural states to permit sales of guns if their citizens wish, even though this may increase the crime rate in states with urban centers where the citizens prefer to ban guns? should we allow states to tax each other's exports? where do you draw the line?
