Laboratories of Repression

• Wall Steet Journal
In 1932, progressive Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis penned one of the most famous passages in American jurisprudence. "It is one of the happy incidents of the federal system," Brandeis wrote in his dissent in New State Ice Co. v. Liebmann, "that a single courageous State may, if its citizens choose, serve as a laboratory, and try novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country."

What do you expect? Like the 2nd Amendment says our right "shall not be infringed", they infringe whenever they like, however they like. They lie, cheat, steal, and kill as it suits the elitists in power. As G.W. Bush said, the U.S. Constitution "is just a g-d-m-d piece of paper!" I recall Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas asked a U.S. Prosecuting Attorney during a trial if the federal government recognized any limits on it's powers. The U.S. attorney refused to answer the question. The Declaration of Independence trumps the federal tyranny in  a violated constitution where the people have no rights and the government has all rights. We have neither a republic nor a democracy, we have a fascist oligarchy posing as a democratic republic in which socialism is decreed to place loss and liability for all costs upon the public, and privatize all profits for ultra-rich "capitalists" who deny opportunities for working people in promising  a Marxist "workers paradise" where healthcare and everything else is controlled by government...treating us like cattle! LIVE FREE OR DIE!
