Reader comments about this quote:
Our Congress, is totally corrupt and is busy making more rules and regulations every day. To quote Mark Twain, "No mans life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session".

    Just like some of the new gun laws being proposed -- if law-abiding Americans do not register the weapons they already possess, they are now criminals and fit into new categories of 'terrorists' and thus subject to indefinite detention. The war on the rights of man seems ceaseless in 21st century Amerika.
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    This was uttered, before constitutional law issued, which didn't affect the validity, of the comment, since we haven't perfected constitutional law, but hey, do we have CORRUPTION? Yep.

    We hold this truth to be self evident - history has proven it over and over again.

    Bob, you have bitten into the legal positivism's lie. There is no Constitutional law, there is only law. The Constitution is a structuring instrument that limits what law may be addressed and by what body. The law existed before the Constitution and will exist long after we are gone. The current occupying statist theocracy infesting this land further corrupts through its canons and otherwise unconstitutional activities. The answer is to return to the Constitution and become a government of law instead of an unconstitutional government of men.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    And congress exempts themselves from all these laws Jim.
