Mises and Madison

"With respect to the two words 'general welfare,' I have always regarded them as qualified by the DETAIL of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a METAMORPHOSIS of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators." -April 20, 1831 Letter from James Madison (dubbed Father of the U.S. Constitution for his role in drafting of the text; see also The Federalist Papers, published on behalf of the American system as one of limited government of by and for the people of A Free Republic)~

"MODERN CRYPTODESPOTISM, which arrogates to itself the name of liberalism, finds fault with the negativity of the concept of freedom. The censure is spurious as it refers merely to the grammatical form of the idea and does not comprehend that all civil rights can be as well defined in affirmative as in negative terms. THEY ARE NEGATIVE AS THEY ARE DESIGNED TO OBVIATE AN EVIL, NAMELY THE OMNIPOTENCE OF THE POLICE POWER [OF GOVERNMENT], AND TO PREVENT THE STATE FROM BECOMING TOTALITARIAN." -Ludwig von Mises in chapter 21, The Theory of Money and Credit~

Prosperity and Freedom: The Peril of Economic Strangulation through Over-regulation

I would like to produce the proper citations and sources in support f the argument that I want to make here, but I am at a car wash at this tme, using a tablet device by which copy-pasting even links is a bit impractical as I would like to point pretty concequencial concepts and what are realities in my opinion in a timely way, to share them with a friend I just met before I lose the opportunity to share this with him as events continue to move and the world continues to turn.

My friend said that the unemployment numbers are inaccurate and unreliable and I agree with that statement. I share his view of the economy as immortal and unkillable.

The view of an economy which parallels man's own unlimitd possibilities and
 creative productive potential so to speak. so why the concern?

  1. Okay I just completed a comment extending my post and t didn't post this sucks! I'll be back to finish up on this!

  2. I'm going to try this again!

    ... Why the concern if man and economy are so full of potential and unlimited possibility so to speak? If they are in a sense, indestructable and unkillable?

    Because they may be diminished and made to suffer unnecessarily and avoidably by directly inflicted harms and misguided

  3. ...misguided measures. These measures, pile one upon another, and also upon pre-existing difficulties, adding new burdens to man and economy which may include greater misery poverty and tyrrany than these measures were "supposed" to improve.

    One of these measures can be classified as over regulation(see also Middle of the Road Policy Leads To Socialism: Zwangswirtschaft Type of Socialism by Ludwig Von Mises) . I willbring specific examples of how this is happening and where it is happening in the American economy and show how this is part of a deliberate and calculated effort. I will get into the key participants in this movement/philosophy and critique and highlight the relevant arguments. America is in the advanced stages of a socialist/Marxist takeover and revolution. There are two key sayings here.. one is that all the laws and regulations in the world can't make a man good, the other was by Marx who or Lenin who said that the capitalists will sell the leninists the very rope by which to hang the capitalists. I believe that this concept applies to something which is happening to Herman cain today: it is the very principles of virtue and faithfulness and truth which Hermancain is alleged to have violated which are considered bourgeoise and useless 'reactionary'
