Where Have You Gone, Mr. Jefferson?

You’ve likely seen this video elsewhere, but given the focus of this blog on the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, I could hardly ignore it. Even has the obligatory “Gipper” segment for those of you wishing RWR was still in charge.


Watch this video now. Given the political leanings of Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel, I wonder how long we’ll have it around.

Which Group Would You Prefer?

I’ve asked this question before, but it’s worth posting, I think.


  • Political parties want to increase their power
  • The Republicans are the “party of the rich” (that’s what the media keep telling us)
  • The Democrats are the “defenders of the poor and downtrodden”

Ok, now call me crazy, but it seems like to me that if the Republicans want to gain power, the best way to do it would be to make more rich people.

And if the Democrats want to gain power, the best way to to do it would be to make more poor people.

Look at their policies of the last 50 years through that lens and see what you think of them.

Now, would you rather be in a group that wants to make you poor? Or one that wants to make you rich?

Seems like a no-brainer to me.
