    Napolitano's Delusions

    Lew Rockwell? :cuckoo:

    Giants and budding giants? :lol:

    Andy starts off quoting Sir Thomas Moore. (read a premise of 'natural law') okay.

    1) Nappy states in colonial America "you had to go to a foreign post office" to buy a stamp with image of king/queen.
    .:eusa_shhh: the colonies were part of Great Britain. :eusa_shhh:

    2) Nappy says "we fought a revolution, we won the revolution, we wrote a constitution"
    .:eusa_shhh:sort of. we wrote the articles of confederation first. leaving that fact out skips over some very important history. :eusa_shhh:

    ---

    Judge Nappy uses 'democracy and freedom' interchangeably.

    3) Quoting Hamilton and others he says "There can be no freedom without government" "As long as the majority rules democracy will be safe"

    4) Says Jefferson argued through Madison(?) and Madison himself argue "Our freedom comes from our humanity"

    note: 7 minutes into the video

    ---

    5) Nap says if you read Madison's notes and other sources about what went on in the room at Philadelphia "we didn't win all those debates" We?

    The Constitution was a compromise document that Madison himself went on to defend against all sides in oder to get it ratified. Nap, is leaving out much and being deceptive in his arguments. Some of his basic premises are flawed right from the start.

    WE? We the people of the USA agreed to respect all that was won in all the debates. People like the former Judge(?), try to argue that only some of the Constitutional arguments need be followed and faithfully upheld while others are somehow invalid -- even though 'we' agreed to them all.

    --

    6) "Regrettably there are far too few Ron Paul's in the government." -yep, a Nappy quote :eusa_whistle:

    note: approaching the 10 minute mark

    Dante you have just been out classed, Napolitano would run circles around your ass and make you look foolish.

    Obama mixed up visits to states with how many states there are. He did so during a grueling and exhaustive campaign.

    Nappy, was fresh and on his feet and using deception to make a point.

    My point? All the so called 'budding greats' sat there and never did one question the veracity of such a bold faced misstatement of fact.

    :lol:

    --

    poor attempt at deflection, bringing in Obama's error as a defense of Nappy. :lol:
