    My beef with Ms Hall is that she seems to be totally myopic and uninformed as to what is really going on in this country.

    She exhibits a fanatical reverence for the US constitution, and fails to see that perhaps the Constitutions centralization of power, created the problem in the first place.

      I really don’t know all that much about her, but have read good things. You know, the Constitution was a pretty darn good attempt at constraining centralized power. Granted, it has been steadily turned on it’s head and it was never perfect. I intend to go, so I’ll let you know what I think afterwards.

        I agree with Spooners 1860’ish take on the Constitution:

        “But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist.” ~ Lysander Spooner

        IMHO it failed miserably at protecting people rights, from day one, and we really need to rethink it, rather than to continue to prop it up. It has allowed the war on drugs, The war on guns. The war on my property. The war on my health….on and on.

        FWIW I have a few of her books lying around that I would be glad to mail you if you want them.

    This book came to mind as some of the rare material that I have read that questions some aspect of the US Constitution:

    “……We had two sets of Founding Fathers: the 1770s set who kicked off the Revolutionary War, and the 1780s set who agitated for a constitutional convention in 1787. Except for a few persons, they were different men — and with different agenda.

    Jefferson did not write the Constitution, but most Americans seem to believe that it was a Jeffersonian product as his Declaration of Independence.

    If you’ve ever wondered how we came to have a leviathan federal government that was supposed to remain small and defined — Hologram of Liberty will explain what happened.

    The 1997 edition is sold out and out of print, and was replaced by this 2012 second edition which has 100 new pages, and thoroughly covers the 10th Amendment, Firearms Freedom Acts, Obamacare, and comparisons between other constitutions……”

      Hey IW, I haven’t read Hologram of Liberty yet, but will try to get it as soon as possible. The timeless battle of mankind is that there are (pretty much) two kinds of people. Those that want to be left alone and those that won’t leave them alone. Or those who think they should be in charge of what everyone does and those who just want people to act civilized to some extent.
      I enjoyed Kris Anne’s talk, but I didn’t really learn anything myself. I think others did though, and that is a good thing.

      I think the Constitution was a pretty good stab at allowing smaller areas to govern themselves. Unlike many, I don’t think it was perfect, but I’m old enough now that I don’t expect perfection any more. Unfortunately, even in it’s imperfection, it is completely void at the present time. The crux of the issue is that we could right things if we had governors that had testicular fortitude. Also, if we had actual money, and not this debt instrument we’ve been under for more than one hundred years.

      It looks to me like the strangle hold is always our capability to produce, create, buy and sell outside of a tyrannical control paradigm. Saying that on “tax day” is kind of funny.
