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~

WTF??! Re: BENGHAZI, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty..

"Who made the decision? The gun battle apparently was being followed in real time in the White House Situation Room and elsewhere. How in the world–I’m suppressing stronger language here–could anyone watch this handful of heroic men battling terrorists without sending reinforcements?"

  1. These brave Americans fought for their lives against America's most bitter enemies, called for help and were left to perish.. meanwhile the P.O.S. in Chief sat on his hands and then tried to cover up what happened.
