    I suspect more evil has been done throughout time in the name of "the common good" than any other excuse.

    I'm just thankful he knows what's best for all of us...:eusa_eh:

    so you are against the common good? Are you against the idea of having a say in something?

    Or do you want this to be another thread where you guys base his words with your speculation into creating your own evil narrative?

    We have someone who does this. Political Chic....

    No, it didn't. The Department of Defense gave us the interstate highway, which was the only way to fund it as there is no mention of 'roads' among the enumerated powers. Ask all the folks that lost their jobs and their businesses along Route 66 if it was for the 'common good'.

    What's wrong with anything he said?

    Republicans remind everybody all the time that we don't have a straight Democracy. "We have a Republic, not a Democracy".

    A Republic is a democracy with a small d.

    Seriously... I can't find a single fucking thing wrong with what he said. You people are idiots.
