    Introductions and "hellos".

    How about we wait and beat on him out in the main forums...??
    I came in with a bang. However, I have thick skin, this isn't my first boat ride. I also have some political connections, but that's top secret! :laughing:

    Do yourself a favor and don't try to get away with unsourced copy and paste quotes here. Looks like your already testing the waters at the top of the page.

    Anyway, welcome aboard. I suspect there are two or three "constitutionalists" types here that you'll get right along with. Most of this board though is the type of left of center posters you so like to argue with. So, have fun.

    I can give you sources I get my info from and you can believe them or not, but what I don't have to do is prove my sources are right. Same as the place! :thumbsup

    Why not? The Articles of Confederation have been gone for about 200 years now.
    I live in Tennessee, why should I pay taxes to support an agency that warns people in Florida or the gulf coast about hurricanes? No hurricanes in Tennessee.

    The coastal waters are of national interest. Not just Florida. I agree though, Florida should handle there own emergencies, as it pertains to Florida. I'd also like to say, the feds need not take all the money from the states and they could afford to handle their own states business.

    I would like to add, The only warning or money spent by the feds on a hurricane is for ships and boats in US waters. If The feds were out of the emergency business, the states would have to sink or swim. Pun intended.

    The feds need to get out of the supplying people's needs, so they can afford their wants, business. It's not their place.

    If the feds only took money to fulfill their constitutional duties, the states would be in better shape. The money could be riened in by the people of each state.

    It would've been nice to have "Constitutionalist" as a choice when signing up.

    Own slaves, blacks aren't people, women can't own property or vote and are LEGAL CHATTEL of their husbands!! Sure why not? Just think how simple it would all be.

    Oh yes, I think we would have some problems there. How many Americans can take to the streets at one time?? I feel quite sure we wouldn't ALL fit!

    And the overall health of this nation, the quality of health care, is NOT in the national interests?

    Like I said previously, the Articles of Confederation are kaput and have been for 200 years.

    A lot of things in the Constitution have went kaput that doesn't make it legal, imo. And I never said it's not in the national interest, I said the states need to take care of anything the Constitution doesn't explicitly give the feds the authority to do so. Healthcare isn't one of them. Neither is feeding people. Helping individuals isn't something the feds should ever do. Unless it's protecting their civil liberties.

    Adjust, no, unless done through legal methods. The problem is interpretation. And yes, the left and the right, both interpret it to fit their particular platform.
    The perfect government is one that stays out of your business. Hell, you shouldn't even know it's there.
