So, boys, where in the constitution does it say we should build you roads to get to work over? Where does it say you should collect that unemployment check you are getting? Where in the constitution does it say we should provide fire trucks to put out the fire that starts in your back in the middle of the night? Where in the constitution does it say we should provide you with clean water to drink? Or educate your children?

I don't expect a response because that would require acknowledging the hypocrisy of those who foolishly run around shouting nonsense they are clueless about.

I love the constitution, fought for our country with not questions asked. But if you start picking & choosing what you want to abide by & what you want to ignore it gets cloudy real fast. We didn`t even have all the states, way less so called representation, no highways to speak of except in the highly populated areas, no organized postal service, schooling, parks,fire or for that matter police. If you start to go purest your gonna have an army for protection made up of common men with little to no training. It still amazes me that we still have brave men & women that are willing to serve, some have been for over 8 years of combat, 8 years. It gets old real quick, the Gov. doesn`t have to finance higher ed., medical research, food & drug safety & on & on. If you or a member of your family need aggressive medical care are they supposed to wait until proof of payment, your not going to care one bit, you want care & now. If you didn`t get care there would be no one to sue, no one has to provide care. There is the ability to add amendment's without that we would still be in colonial times.

Some of those things are on a state basis and thus not covered on a constitutional basis.

The rest like the Department of Education are utter failures and I'm ready to stop paying for them, how about you?

Sam,thank you for your Service. You could have gone to Canada,you didn't. You and everyone else who served,took care of my then kid butt so I could be here now. Nobody asked you if you were a Lib,Conservative or just Drifting Politically when you took the Oath and put the Uniform on. Again,thank you. I'm greatful that we can have this discussion about Constitutional Interpretations and Values. Some Countries this just wouldn't be happening. Our rights never came free,and God help us the day apathy rules supreme where we don't discuss it.

I'm on my phone right now so I don't have the ability to pick this apart but there is so much wrong here I can't even get my head around it...

How do you thing this country made it to the 20th century without all the strong Federal government to do everything for us?

What do you mean "no one has to provide care"? No one HAS to provide care NOW. Unless I missed the part where people were forced to become doctors.

People do what they do because they generally get paid to do it. They are FORCED to provide care now because the government guarantees at least some payment. In exchange, they aren't allowed to turn people away.

But if you as a doctor don't take Medicare, then you are free to treat who you want. The duty to give care in that instance is guided by ones morals. Many doctors provide free or low cost service and the government has nothing to do with it.

I'm not easily shocked but your post has me stunned.

I don't qualify for unemployment since I'm self-employed. I haven't collected it since 1984. I go out and get work. If I was eligible for it, I would be tempted to accept it, rather than seek employment. Millions of other hard-working, self-reliant Americans concur.

You assumed.
