Most Important Post of the Day

by Smitty

The Jacksonian Party has a crucial graph on incumbency that I've wanted to do the work to produce for some time now. Director Blue has some additional thoughts.

The gist is that the 17th Amendment is correlated with a sudden decrease in the turnover rate in Congress, aiding the creation of the Congress That Shall Live in Infamy.

That may be a strong contributor. But what about the 16th Amendment and the Federal Reserve Act? I think it's high time "We the People", in this Information Age, realize that Progressivism was really a soft coup, and set about breaking the back of the beast.

It ain't over until Americans cower in fear like the poor blokes in lesser countries. Federalism!

  1. I think the 16th amendment is what changed things for the congress. It gave them the cash flow so they could bribe fools with their own money, as well as develop those same fool constituencies to garner votes. It's much easier with other people's money.
