    as yurt has said, having this discussion again, all one needs to do is read the federalist and anti federalist papers. the constitutional convention debate minutes. all the works of the commentators during that time. it should be self explanatory after that.
    The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them. - Patrick Henry
    "You seem ... to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy... The Contitution has erected no such single tribunal." --Thomas Jefferson, 1820

    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."


    - C.S. Lewis

    Words to live by:

    "have a good day all my friends and people who love to hate me.
    shit some read bricks for me to add to my collection.
    it will keep your system clean
    later we can use them to build the great wall of Arkansas
    so you can wall the world off
    the fact that they are imaginary should not trouble you fact adverse people one bit.
    turkey spliff my friends"
