I forget now, what the tax increase was - that spurred the "Boston Tea Party." It was minor (pennies on the dollar) compared to what we have today.
My question is, what "tax freedom day" amounts to enslavement and tyranny?
Part of me thinks we are already there.
The US ARMY was formed in 1775.
The USMC was formed in 1775, as well.
Obviously, the U.S population (tax base) and the Military both have grown significantly.
If it is YOUR claim that the ratio SHOULD have changed to the extent that it has, since 1900, then feel free to explain WHY you think...
Let's begin the discussion with your thoughts on this;
"Tax Freedom Day is a concept developed and trademarked by American businessman Dallas Hostetler, which aims to calculate the first day of the year on which a nation as a whole has...
Monk-Eye that is (at least partially) blatantly incorrect.
The actual text of the 14th Amendment is:
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.
A person born...
Do you know (or care) how ridiculous it is, to DENY that a human being is a "human being" - regardless of the stage of development that the human being is in?
Human Beings do not MORPH out of one organism that is NOT a human being and into an organism that IS.
When does a woman's body begin?
Shouldn't a woman's right to her life, body, etc. begin when her life does? Instead of at some arbitrarily decided point where abortion proponents like you can't stomach or justify their (your) denials about them anymore?
I can not find a more fitting example of what a fascist is than are the left-tardz that declare a child is not a child - nor worthy of basic human rights and protections, unless and until the damn thing lives too long and develops past some arbitrarily decided point. . . where-after the...
Might have to agree to disagree.
For example, if the SCOTUS would have ruled in the Dredd Scott case that slaves were person's and entitled to the equal protection of our laws under the 5th Amendment to the Constitution and in favor of Dredd Scott. . . A big part of the Civil War might have...
The Supreme Court said in Roe (and I agree with them) that "once personhood is established" for children in the womb, they are automatically entitled to Constitutional protections under the 14th Amendment (see my sig.)
No new Constitutional amendment is necessary.
A human being is a human being.
A HUMAN "fertilized egg" is indeed a "HUMAN" being/ organism - once the fertilization is successful and it results in a "HUMAN" being conceived.
Are YOU a "HUMAN being?"
Were YOU not "conceived?"
I am and I was.
Now, as to whether a HUMAN BEING in the...
All the more reason to get the case for personhood before the SCOTUS.

I am having dinner with my wife and decided to check msgs and recent posts Surely some of the posts in this thread is out of bounds. Ths is beyond the worst I've ever seen on USMB. Way to ruin a nice dinner and night out.
The Constitution for the State of Indiana (Article 12 Section 1) sheds some light on the historical setting for how a militia is defined before it ever became so politically polarized.
Article 12. - Militia.
Section 1. A militia shall be provided and shall consist of all persons over the...
