    Under the subterfuge of helping the economy, Barack Obama's Stimulus legislates vast new spending programs to finance liberal policy goals that are unnecessary and undesirable. The flow of taxpayers' money will be so gargantuan as to make Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society expansion of the welfare state look puny.

    Barack Obama revealed his long-term goals in a radio interview on Chicago's WBEZ-FM in 2001. Asked about the Earl Warren court decisions that started long lines of activist decisions in many areas, Obama argued that the Warren court didn't go far enough: the Warren court changed the laws, but failed to address the economic issues to bring about "redistributive change."

    Obama complained that "the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth" or "economic justice" and failed to "break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution." The Stimulus is designed to break through those constitutional restraints on government action.

    How many years has it been since either party followed the Constitution? What gives the government the power to spend 850 billion Bush bailout dollars or 789 Obama bailout dollars?

    I think the demise started with Lincoln, and was given a real shot in the arm by FDR. Now it's getting another booster shot.

    Been going downhill ever since.:mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Perhaps the congress should work on a "spread the wealth" amendment to the constitution??? That would make it all legal...
