and with the constitutional provisions designed to secure that end."

    The New Deal was one of the more noticeable steps towards the socialist police state we are witnessing today. Restore the Republic.

    ... and many want to go back to a world of child labor & slave ownership too... just because it didn't exist in the 1700's does not mean it is right for a civilized society to do it...

    Reston, what on earth are you talking about. Your response is pure nonsense and is stupid even for a far left liberal.

    The New Deal had nothing to do with child-labor or slavery. It had to do with bankrupting the nation, putting it in receivership to the private Federal Reserve, and the confiscation of all money and property in return for a permanent and unpayable interest-bearing debt. Ignorance of economic principles has allowed the uber-wealthy to take over the country and indenture us forever to their will. Socialist liberals are so quick to condemn the rich while never following the money which actually ends up in the hands of the wealthy as planned. Socialism is monopoly, and FDR set up a government that protects the banker's monopoly of creating 'money' out of nothing to 'loan' at interest to the nation. This trick allows the government to spend without limit and without approval from the people. This debt has grown exponentially, and fellow socialists on both sides of the aisle keep on laying upon us more and more debt until our economy can barely function. The goal is perpetual debt for all under a fascist police state under which we have no control. That is the 'New' Deal.

    The Supreme Court has ruled somewhere in the past 10 years that 'takings' are very legal. To the dismay of an entire town on the east coast.

    Trying to educate Reston is like attempting to seal Reston's mind is absolutely perforated!

    The "A" from Reston, can you give a few examples of your referenced individuals that want to go back to a world of child labor & slave ownership ? Or is your reference just another nonexistent boogy-man to advance your religious dogma
