American Empire

(Part One)

I stopped trusting the United States a long time ago. I find it very hard to believe anything that comes from the federal government. I am convinced that both major political parties have the same agenda; world domination. I also believe that Congress has lost most of the power reserved for it by the United States Constitution. The Bush administration greatly expanded Executive Branch power, especially in the area of military operations. The Authorization for the Use of Force passed in 2002 had a stipulation that the Executive Branch must report to Congress every 60 days on how the AUOF was being used.  (Public Law 107-243, Oct 16, 2002).

The Road to Health-Care Serfdom

I sensed a bit of frustration during President Obama’s state of the union address when he said, “The longer it [the health-care overhaul] was debated, the more skeptical people became.” I’m not totally sure what point he thought he was making. After all, it wouldn’t speak well for a proposal if prolonged discussion of its particulars created doubt about its value. But surely he didn’t want to convey that message.
