Journal of the Senate of the United States of America,
WEDNESDAY, May 11, 1842
"Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.[United States v.] Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons."

FDR was by far worst and implemented Leninism here in US after his Advisors came back from Moscow after meeting Stalin & Trotsky which helped set in Motion what became the New Deal.

By whose standard is FDR considered one the worst president of the United States? Certainly not any one with a knowledge of history, political science or just has an education past the 6th grade level.

The Worst President Ever

In the first half of the last century, no one did more to promote government growth than FDR. Longtime socialist leader Norman Thomas said FDR implemented more of his policies than he ever could. And let’s not forget the lies and deceit that got us into World War II; all of the things he did to buttress the Soviet Union during the war; or the horrible concessions afterwards that condemned millions of people to a lifetime of slavery under Communist rule. Need I say more?

"The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms shall NOT be infringed".

That is part of the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND. And ANYTHING to the contrary NOTWITHSTANDING. The court is NOT permitted to override the SUPREME WRITTEN FUNDAMENTAL LAW:

"Those then who controvert the principle that the Constitution is to be considered, in court as a paramount law, are reduced to the necessity of maintaining that courts must close their eyes on the Constitution, and see only law.

"This doctrine would subvert the very foundation of all written Constitutions ... It would be giving to the legislature a practical and real omnipotence, with the same breath, which professes to restrict their powers within narrow limits. It is prescribing limits, and declaring that those limits may be passed at pleasure.

"That it thus reduces to nothing what we have deemed the greatest improvement on political institutions--a written Constitution--would of itself be sufficient, in America, where written Constitutions have been viewed with so much reverence, for rejecting the Constitution."

"All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution, are null and void."--Chief Justice Marshall, U.S. Supreme Court, Marbury v. Madison, 5, U.S.(Cranch) 137, 174,176.]

"The primary principle; underlying an interpretation of constitutions is that the intent is the vital part and the essence of the law."--Rasmussen v. Barker, 7 Wyo. 117; 50 p 819.

Never say Obama can't be as bad as FDR. He still has nearly four years to work with. If Obama ends up with a filibuster proof Democrat Congress in 2014, who knows what evil will be enacted on the US? Remember, freeloaders are on the rise and taxpayers are on the decline. Will that come into play as early as 2014? Time will tell.

The Democrats have already secured their future just like they did in 1994 and repeated it again which everyone knows what happened in November 1994.

I hope you are right. But there were not as many freeloaders in 1994 as there are today. Freeloaders vote to secure freebies. The people working and paying taxes are declining in number.
Like I said, I hope you are right. If you are, it certainly will not be by a landslide.

I know what saying about people securing freebies and Ben Franklin was right

Hundreds of ALEC’s model bills and resolutions bear traces of Koch DNA: raw ideas that were once at the fringes but that have been carved into “mainstream” policy through the wealth and will of Charles and David Koch. Of all the Kochs’ investments in right-wing organizations, ALEC provides some of the best returns: it gives the Kochs a way to make their brand of free-market fundamentalism legally binding.

The Kochs have a penchant for paying their way out of serious violations and coming out ahead. Helped by Koch Industries’ lobbying efforts, one of the first measures George W. Bush signed into law as governor of Texas was an ALEC model bill giving corporations immunity from penalties if they tell regulators about their own violation of environmental rules. Dozens of other ALEC bills would limit environmental regulations or litigation in ways that would benefit Koch.

ALEC’s model legislation reflects parts of the Kochs’ agenda that have little to do with oil profits. Long before ALEC started pushing taxpayer-subsidized school vouchers, for example, the Koch fortune was already underwriting attacks on public education. David Koch helped inject the idea of privatizing public schools into the national debate as a candidate for vice president in 1980. A cornerstone of the Libertarian Party platform, which he bankrolled, was the call for “educational tax credits to encourage alternatives to public education,” a plan to the right of Ronald Reagan. Several pieces of ALEC’s model legislation echo this plan.

Democrats helped with the Humphrey–Hawkins Full Employment Act too which really made things worse.

There is more discontent in this country than almost ever before. And because of the economy, a LOT of the illegals and others are going back home. The independents are gaining large increases in both the state and federal governments. 2014-16 will probably be the end of the demonrat party. And the republicans will be losing out as well. That is unless they pull their heads out.

Humphrey–Hawkins Full Employment Act
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_Employment_...
Explicitly states that the federal government will rely primarily on private enterprise to achieve the four goals.
Instructs the government to take reasonable means to balance the budget.
Instructs the government to establish a balance of trade, i.e., to avoid trade surpluses or deficits.
Mandates the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve to establish a monetary policy that maintains long-run growth, minimizes inflation, and promotes price stability.
Instructs the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve to transmit an Monetary Policy Report to the Congress twice a year outlining its monetary policy.
Requires the President to set numerical goals for the economy of the next fiscal year in the Economic Report of the President and to suggest policies that will achieve these goals.
Requires the Chairman of the Federal Reserve to connect the monetary policy with the Presidential economic policy.

The Act set specific numerical goals for the President to attain. By 1983, unemployment rates should be not more than 3% for persons aged 20 or over and not more than 4% for persons aged 16 or over, and inflation rates should not be over 4%. By 1988, inflation rates should be 0%. The Act allows Congress to revise these goals over time.

That's exactly what the republicans did when Reagan became president because he used Paul Volker and the federal reserve exactly as the HHFE act intended.

As for the other provision none were even tried.

The only directive I would give the Federal Reserve is to close and disappear.
