i am less concerned with the spending, bad as it is. taking over companies, limiting salaries, punitive taxation, expanded social programs, bailouts of mortgages, etc. are far more dangerous i think. these are the things that will destroy our country long term.
our founders did not think that support of a duly elected presidents was our duty. it was our duty to protect the constitution FROM those elected officials that would destroy it.
in our history, we have never seen our government trash the constitution as this one is. even FDR and Lincoln, who came the closest to ignoring it, did not do what this government is proposing to do.
if they continue on this path we are looking at unprecedented expansion of federal powers, destruction of states rights, destruction of the private sector, and a welfare class that will make all future decisions on taxes and welfare expansion.
