  •  it's the right's attempt to replace the (0+ / 0-)

    constitution with the articles of confederation. conservatives LOVE the articles of confederation b/c it has, at its core, a weak decentralized govt & delegates almost all power to the states. it was the same govt the confederacy adopted when the southern states seceded, & was used throughout the civil war until it proved unworkable (jeff davis couldn't raise taxes for the war effort, etc.) & morphed into a dictatorship.

    that's what conservatives are really up to: they want a dictatorship.

      want to create conditions that would lead to an eventual dictatorship -- like happened in the csa. jeff sharlet's book, the family, details the unholy (pun intended) alliance between big money & the fundies in their pusuit of an oligarchial theocracy. that's what this is all about -- it's laying the foundation for that eventuality.
