    Beck is stark raving mad.

    Glenn Beck Slavery | Glenn Beck on ObamaCare | Audio | Mediaite

    "And it started small, and it started with seemingly innocent ideas. And then a little court order here, and a court order there and a little regulation here and a little more regulation there. And before we knew it, America had slavery.

    It didn’t come over in a ship to begin with, as an evil slave trade. The government began to regulate things because the people needed answers and needed solutions. It started in a court room then it went to the legislatures. That’s how slavery began. And it took a long time to enslave an entire race of people, and convince another race of people that they were somehow or another, less than them. But it can be done."

    Goes back to Blackstone. Slavery can only exist by positive law.

    Take it easy on the demagogic room-temperature-IQ little twirps.

    It's much easier for them to screech about Beck being a loon than consider the more esoteric points of the matter. ;)
