    for 4th time: if true you would be so afraid to present an example of "irrational" to make your point. What does your fear teach you?

    PS: off your meds insults are the oldest most common insults of all on internet. Congrats that you find them meaningful as an adultl!

    Repeating a demand for proof that you would simply deny or explain away would be an exercise in frustration and futility on my part as I learned long ago not to argue with demagogues....... :thup:

    My apologies. You are correct on the early state of that party. Senility is creeping in.

    We might do better using the terms liberal and conservative. We should also recognize that we in America were building a nation in a period of vast changes taking place in America and Europe. Those changes would be centered about new perspectives on people, governments and science.

    yes the fear of liberal central govt was so great that a Bill of Rights was passed to severely limit central govt power, but it was not enough to confine govt to the enumerated powers and thus today we have an ever growing govt no matter how much it has already grown.

    and more importantly please keep in mind that Jefferson's Republican Party was based on limited govt just like the modern Republican Party. The Democratic idea of big govt is in no way connected to our founding principles

    You are absolutely correct. the new American government was not created for limited government.
    George's monarchy was created for the king and noble class and not the serfs. The framers were done with that type of government so they created a limited government to avoid the monarch types of governments. Later, as liberals grew secure with their government they increased the aid to the serfs through laws and aid. Today the serfs still vote liberal, and the noble class vote Republican. One only has to read the Declaration of Independence to get an idea of what the liberals had in mind for their government.
