Forgotten Federalism

Most Americans are aware of very few of their Constitutional rights, or more accurately, Constitutional protections. As kids we try unsuccessfully to "plead the fifth" when mom questions us about the broken lamp and as teenagers, we love to remind our parents of our right to free speech. But aside from these few, there's an unfortunate ignorance about our other protections, in particular the tenth amendment.

50 > 1: Changing Washington from the Outside

Ask your neighbors and co-workers a simple question: "What are the wealthiest counties in America?" Here are the answers I got:“Is Manhattan a county? That has to be one of the richest.”“Which county has Beverly Hills?”“San Francisco County has to be up there. Silicon Valley too.”

Obama: Clueless and Wrong

President Obama granted an interview with CBS News in which he not only mischaracterized basic economic principles, but did so using his usual logical fallacies. After making these basic errors, he went on to question his opponent's ability even to think about the issues Mr. Obama had just shown himself unable to comprehend.

SennholzSeeking a favorable image, the politician talks in generalities, exaggerates and obfuscates.
