Just think of it, the west was being expanded into, the S and N were brewing for war then explode, trains being built and departing from St.Louis.. the bustle of it all... opportunity and change, life and death, chance and bravery all clashing and converging at once and simultaneously changing lives and history together...

<sigh>time machine.. gotta get to work on that..

"Public officers are the servants and agents of the people, to execute the laws which the people have made."

"He mocks the people who proposes that the government shall protect the rich and that they in turn will care for the laboring poor."
