I could write a book on this but will refrain except to say that everything has worked out pretty much as LBJ intended!

Of course, much of what LBJ did, he could not have done without the help of Earl Warren and his lackeys on the Supreme Court, who did more to undermine the United States of America in a decade than pretty much anyone else in the history of the country. And yes, that includes the Confederates and, believe it or not, Obama.
"A deficit is what you've got when you haven't got as much as if you just had nothing. If we tried any of this, we'd end up in jail, but the government gets rid of its debts by nationalizing them. That's like the alcoholic who solved his problem by pouring the booze in all of his bottles into one big container. Himself." (Charlie Farquharson, edited for spelling)

Excellent point, and another topic worthy of a frickin' book.  Take a look back at SCOTUS in the thirties and especially the battles with FDR....

Actually the foundations were laid long before any of us were born.

Yup. That is a sad truth, but truth nonetheless.

In my case about 100 years before in fact!  1848

The laying began when many participants of the failed socialist revolutions which took place all over Europe that year began to arrive here having escaped the hangman in their home countries by a hair!

What a great point!  I never thought about it in that light, but yes, I suppose that many of them flocked here!  Thanks for pointing that out!

Thanks Katz! In at least one case that I know of a life long correspondence with Mr Karl Marx himself ensued.

Mine came from Ireland in the late 1840s on several of the famine ships.  But most struck out on their own and wound up in the Midwest as farmers.
It's the Supreme Court nominations!

Funny about Marx.  A lot of people didn't know he was the European correspondent for the New York Tribune, Horace Greeley's paper.  Greeley was an early Republican supporter after the Party began in 1854.

Absolutely right!

Perhaps they don't know by design Mac.

You can read a little about the fellow I spoke of earlier at the link below.

There are many more.
