About responsible2all

I am a working stiff who finds it hard to get all the bills paid sometimes. I am basically happy with my far-from-boring, crazy, albeit fulfilled life. But I have watched the earth and the people upon it for a very long time now. And I know that the Freedoms of the Upper Man, whose last stronghold on earth is the United States of America, are under constant attack by the Scarlet Babylonian Antichrist, and by the Beast upon who She rides. So now, after all of these years of obscurity behind the Green Hedge, beneath the Veil of the Chuppah, above the Smoky Glass Ceiling, it is time to speak of the things which I have always Known, and have seen and heard, and have been taught on that Fateful Day, by John Daniel.

    From the. Gunny:

    “Herbert Hoover said at the start of an uphill reelection campaign: “We are opposed by six million unemployed, 10,000 bonus marchers, and 10 cent corn. Is it any wonder that the prospects are dark?””

    No problemo for King HeHimself. The worst prez of all time…and he got re-elected. Guess it’s all that “charisma.”

  2. Eisenhower was another strong federal government type. It has been alleged that he wanted to divide the U.S. into federal districts, thus eliminating the states geogaphically. I saw that once, and am still looking for it. His administration was a mixed bag of good and bad for the Constitution.

    • Carlos Helms says:

      That remains a possibility. El Presidente has proposed a “Council of Governors” – 10 in number – who would “govern” 10 regions and usurp the constitutional 10th Amendment power of states, essentially making states “districts” within the regions…and giving BigGov centralized power over the entire population.

  3. Gary Harper says:

    Essentially that says there are no States. Eisenhower’s plan was nine districts. I assume DC was the tenth. DC still chafes at the idea that the States consider it to be a lesser entity not deserving of representation in Congress. That was done so there could be no deals made between any State and DC to screw over any other State. And also because DC philosophically works for the States, to smooth things between them, not the other way around.
