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~

The American Social Compact Is Broken!

Only awareness about the truth of this situation will lead us out of this mess and undo much grave damage and roll back and finally defeat the dangerous and immensly destructive project of the bankrupt unsupportable socialist command-economy model which put the people of China, North Korea, Cuba and the former Soviet Republics under totalitarian bondage and civil, scientific, and economic, mediocrity. 

This awareness is necessary today so that history does not repeat itself and the greatest, most innovative, prosperous and truly progressive nation on earth perishes.

This is the wish of an American patriot in action and  friend to all who love liberty.
