Well, that didn't last long in two, twenty, twenty, the platform raised its rates to sixty five dollars monthly.

How should the media cover the presidential race in the Trump era?

"Rid of the ballots. Locker up has now morphed into get rid of the ballots. And that's become an effect. The trump campaign slogan and the trump campaign strategy. It became the strategy yesterday when Donald Trump said that. And get rid of the ballots are the first words of a New York Daily News op Ed piece today with the headline. The president is psychopath the new. York daily. News is one hundred and one years old, which makes it New York City's youngest circulating daily newspaper. And it carries a headline in twenty twenty. That was unthinkable. When the daily news was founded in one thousand, nine hundred nineteen. President is a psychopath. The article is written by two psychologists and it says get rid of the ballots and there won't be a transfers said Donald Trump on Wednesday. This comment is a direct dangerous expression of his anti-democratic intention. If unstopped trump may well destroy our two, hundred, forty, four year, old democracy, it is time to stop pulling punches. It is time to stop relying on political pundits to weigh in on trump's behavior, which they often softened and even normalized. We are psychologists and we are convinced Donald trump is a psychopath his malignant behavior over the past four years is growing escalating right before our eyes trump's psychopathy will change us forever if he is not stopped. And today the New York. Times. Published up ed piece by the newspapers distinguished columnist Michelle Goldberg which says the President Quote Daily defiles his office with. Corruption disloyalty and Sater's. The president of the United. States is aspiring fascist who would burn democracy to the ground to solve his diseased he go. Michelle Goldberg. In New York Times print. Refers to. The rotten and squalid party that is enabling him. These are all words that could not in did not appear in the New York Times about American presidents and now fit. Well within the bounds, the contours of mainstream comment about this president. The New York Times. Is One hundred, sixty, nine years old. And it's had to find new language to deal with Donald. Trump because donald trump has brought new language to the presidency like get rid of the ballots. The. New York Post. Is Two hundred nineteen years old the oldest New York City newspaper was founded by Alexander Hamilton but it is now owned and operated by an Australian born billionaire who liked donald trump got his start in life from his rich father. And history will show Rupert Murdoch's most significant contribution. To his adopted country. Has Been. The perversion.

"Person, woman, man, camera, TV": Trump describes cognitive test

"Person, woman, man, camera, TV": Trump describes cognitive test

"Trump was interviewed last night on Fox, by Dr Mark Siegel trump was not taking his chances with any old fox host. Who might hold him to say account Oh. No, this was Dr Mark Siegel who said this about trump's leadership on the corona virus early on. Are you impressed by that? The number of Americans who've got that much confidence in the trump administration absolutely do I think that the task force that the president put together, and his leadership on this has been tremendous. That assessment was offered ten days after trump said these words now the virus that we're talking about having to do a lot of people think that goes away in April with the. As the heat comes in, typically, that will go away and April see goes, applauded trump every step of the way, and was there for the right man to conduct this interview about a very vital medical subject, gripping the country's attention, which is the president's lack of dementia or should I say? The president's repeatedly stated lack of dementia? Yes, at issue is the president's terrific brain. Because the President keeps returning to that issue, we must think it's a big electoral winner for him I. Mean Imagine a president who doesn't have early onset dementia in the dream of Alexander Hamilton it. It is why he authored all those federalist papers and didn't give away his shot to one day found the country led by a man who's not insane or model, brained King George. The second wasn't saying by the way and so here we are today. Forty three presidents later led by such a good man with such a good brain that he needs us all to know how good a brain it is keeps bringing up an interview after interview last night. He did so with an actual doctor with credentials that I just cited impeccable ones meaning he loves trump, but also. To remind you a little bit more about Marciel. He thought the Corona virus was great big ball of hype here. He was on March sixth. I'll test the flu. I'll test the coronavirus virus to calm. Fears and people are GONNA start to get the idea that it's not that widespread Siegel was privy to a different test yesterday as the president detailed the difficulty. Difficulty of the cognitive test that was administered a while ago. I gave you this test version of this task. What trump called the hardest parts of this test on the show? A couple of days ago I read some actual words that are actually read by Dr to a patient who might have say Alzheimer's and those words are face. Velvet Church Daisy Green. Now. The point of it is that they're random words. Not Obscure words but words unrelated to each other. In fact, I WanNa let you know that I am so dedicated to this idea that the words beyond related that I saw the official test. The last word was red, not green and I changed it for the just version of the memory test. I changed it to green because I thought that read was to associated with red velvet cake. Thus perhaps skewing the results such as my dedication to the process and adjudication of you, the listener as non demented. That is why I. Ask you to recall those words, can you? Can you do it those words? They were faced velvet. Church, Daisy Green. The president by the way tweaked the test in the discussion that he had with Dr. Siegel like a memory question it's. Like you'll go person. Woman Man. Camera. TV. So that say. Could you repeat that? So I said Yeah. Person Woman. Man Camera TV okay. So in his case, it wasn't unrelated words. It was notably things in trump's direct line of sight. So twenty seconds after the clip I just played when trump busts out the same sequence, you go person. Warming, man. Camera TV. It's not quite as impressive as the actual test. Because recalling the words, he said we're just going down the line. There's a person as a man. There's a woman camera TV that that black I, don't know if I got him in the right order. I wouldn't have got his high marks as trump by the way all of this this impressive world-beating. Demonstration of non dementia. I think it sets trump up pretty well after the presidency. Now there is a downside which is that he won't be able to put forward a diminished capacity defense, if the Manhattan District Attorney or Sdn y brings charges. Out there and Gangster Heaven Vincent the Chin Gigante saying no, you gotta start muttering and shuffled around in a bathrobe early on can't do it at the last minute of Fun Ghoul. But should trump be stripped of his assets and forced to raise money. He will now have the option of touring the country as Donald Trump and his feats of intellect and Memory Prowess Marvel as Donald. Trump remembers five words in order as he repeats the same story about having a friend who doesn't go to Paris anymore as he can flakes, the notion that windmills kill eagles. Also causes cancer as he invents on the spot, different things that a dog can do like get fired there trump you and trump steaks, trump casino, and now the trump, traveling show of medical marvels and mental feats, in which the former president we'll prove himself to be the greatest conjurer that history chronicles the amazing trump gin at a fairground or read it channel near you.

The Constitution doesn't address this. Did she do a constitutional argument that you do a practical argument? She really did a combination of classical texts and history Texas during practice. I mean, the text doesn't really address the attacks, basically direction of states to select the electorate. It doesn't say anything about any right of the electorate might have. And then she traces the history which has not really from maybe from 17 96 on, it was expected that electors would vote for the person they were chosen to vote for, so I think she basically said that this was something that the states we're free to do. There were no counter president. There is one Supreme Court president in 19 fifties. Which upheld the authority of state to require the electorate take pledges that they were both the way they were talking about. But there is no punishment. In that case. I think she basically had text process or history and maybe a sense of And in fact, we have reached the stage now where the electors are really a part of the process. Ah, popular election, and in her opinion, she referenced the HBO show veep as well as the Broadway musical Hamilton. Correct, so she seemed to have a little bit of fun with it right. She is a very lightly writer she often puts in colloquial saying popular thing. She is lively and readable writer to find myself laughing out loud. When I read something of her, she had an opinion. Does not the rinse and repeat claws, and she asked a lot of fairway Lo Creo casual funny. Thanks. There are more faithless electors in the 2016 presidential election than ever before in history, but How much impact will this decision really have going forward? I would point out I mean, collectors are very rare. You could go back for the preceding century. We're looking at this between 1916 on 2012 There were exactly nine faithless electors and that within 25 elections, and there were 500 electorate form or and every one of those elections, so it's a very rare thing. They were a sizable number 2016 and I think it reflected a lot of the discontent in the country with the choice of the people had. It's highly unlikely we were gonna have a constitutional crisis due to faithless electors. But I think there's a value in were symbolic. Anything else. But those kind of concern the idea that this is a popular election. In Italy. It's a popular election by state, which is why we can still get a gap between the national popular vote in the national electoral votes. The president populated upon a state by state basis, But it is that kind of a confirmation that whatever the intentions of the framers were in 17 87 we have moved in a more small D democratic direction. Advocates for allowing faithless electors to so called go Rogue, said it would be a backdoor way for states to add qualifications for presidential candidates. Such as voting on Ly for those who released taxes did that come up in the opinions, Justice Kagan take the position that they have the power to write the rules for the selection of the electorate. They can also impose conditions. But then she got the footnote says What the state can't do is impose conditions that would violate another constitutional norm.

And then she traces the history which has not really from maybe from 17 96 on, it was expected that electors would vote for the person they were chosen to vote for, so I think she basically said that this was something that the states we're free to do. There were no counter precedent. There is long Supreme Court president in 19 fifties. Which upheld the authority of state to require the electorate take pledges that they were both the way they were choosing the boat. But there was no punishment in 19 So I think she basically had text process or history and maybe a sense of And in fact, we have reached the stage now where the electors are really a part of the process. Ah, popular election, and in her opinion, she referenced the HBO show veep as well as the Broadway musical Hamilton. Correct, so she seemed to have a little bit of fun with it right. He has a very lively writer she often puts in colloquial saying popular things. She is lively and readable writer from trying to find myself laughing out loud. When I read something of her. She had an opinion recently dealing with our Congress to limit the president just called removal, which the court struck down in that case. And one of the arguments in the majority of that case was that it had never been done before or was very rarely done before, and she said that really shouldn't matter. The necessary and proper clause is not the reason Ricky claws and she had a lot of fairly low Creo casual funny. Thanks. There are more faithless electors in the 2016 presidential election than ever before in history, but How much impact will this decision really have going forward? I would point out I mean, collectors are very rare. You could go back for the preceding century. We're looking at this between 1916 on 2012 There were exactly nine faithless electors and that within 25 elections, and there were 500 electorate form or and every one of those elections, so it's a very rare thing. They were a sizable number 2016 and I think it reflected a lot of discontent in the country with the choice of the people had. It's highly unlikely we were gonna have a constitutional crisis due to faithless electors. But I think there's a value in were symbolic. Anything else but those kind of concern on the idea that this is a popular election. In Italy. It's a popular action by state, which is why we can still get a gap between the national popular vote in the national electoral votes. The president populated with despondent state by state basis, But it is that kind of a confirmation that whatever the intentions of the framers were in 17 87 we have moved in a more small D democratic direction. Advocates for allowing faithless electors to so called go Rogue, said it would be a backdoor way for states to add qualifications for presidential candidates. Such as voting on Ly for those who released taxes did that come up in the opinions, justice cake and take the position that they have the power to write the rules for the selection of the electorate. They can also impose conditions. But then she drops the footnotes and says What the state can't do is impose conditions that would violate another constitutional norm. You are adding a new qualifications to be president..

Andy Plankton Beulah. WanNa Tony for his work on it so when you're watching Hamilton. Pay Close attention to the movements of both Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Every gesture is designed to highlight the personalities or foreshadow the story Hamilton was a free thinker while Burr was rigid. That's why Andy explains to playbill quote. Every movement Aaron makes is linear while everything with Hamilton is circular. If either characters falling into his cycle of fate, they turn to the left, and if they're resisting fate, they turn to the right fascinating

Difference between Direct and Indirect Taxes

"Okay so we've been hearing a lot about wealth tax and I don't even think most people even know what a wealth tax is and they stop listening because it's only going to affect they say only gonna affect those people making it or have a billion dollars or more but it's going to be a tax on everything they own so there are the the money they gave to their kids you know all of it all of it and so it doesn't seem to be constitutional at all but everybody is loving it because it doesn't affect them and it's gonna raise all this money but it's unconstitutional Kyle salmon is a senior contributor for the federalist he has podcast is co host of conservative minds welcome to the program Kyle how are you good thing for a mail client you bet so you wrote a very good article in the federalist about why Elizabeth Warren's well taxes completely unconstitutional but can you can you can you explain it in simple layman's terms WHYY and what a direct tax is you know just kind of break this down for us sure when the distinction I mean between DirectX an indirect tax is one that doesn't come up very much but it was something discussed at the constitutional convention because the founding fathers the the government they were living under the articles of confederation did not have the power to tax the other just ask the states for money and hope I got it so a lot of times you can get it because the states didn't want to pay it so when they wrote the constitution they thought well okay we need to be able to tax directly so Congress to levy a tax and we can pay for the army and the navy and everything else we need to pay for but they want to give in to much power to tax didn't want them to overwhelm the states and take away all of the people's money and and and put himself in a worse situation so they they split the difference and said that Congress could tax but they couldn't do any direct tax and less it would be apportioned by population so what does that mean at the constitutional convention Rufus king of Massachusetts asked what is the precise meaning of DirectX and according to Madison's notes nobody answered and they moved on okay good so even in the beginning it was sort of a compromise language but as a then we moved on it kind of took on the idea that a tax on people or property is a direct tax a tax on sales or imports is an indirect tax so Congress always is taxed imports or had the heavy buildings action ports of them and that's that's terrible and we've had that since the beginning the you know Alexander Hamilton came up with the whiskey tax which caused a little star in the west but it was definitely constitutional because it was a tax on on the sales of whiskey thanks but they could not taxed property directly was the idea unless they a portion that tax among the states so that each state paid its share according to population according to property affected was made property taxes impossible because it would make any sense why why if you had to state that the same population so but one of them was Rachel one of them was poor they both have to sit pay the same amount of property tax to the government among actively mean is that each poor person and the poor state had to pay the same amount as the rich people in the rich state okay sort of the opposite about taxes even in those days were meant to go so it had to be apportioned by the state meaning California and South Dakota would pay the exact same rate and as a state yes but it but if if one was California that had all the rich people there and south go head now the rich people they're they're screwed yeah that's why Congress never really impose a tax like that because it would have made no sense in the room with an angry so weak that work for about a hundred years now we get down to the first permanent income tax getting imposed in the eighteen nineties and people said Hey isn't this the same thing you know you're taxing income that's a direct tax and the Supreme Court agreed and they say you have to apportion this which basically meant they're gonna repeal it because the same problems then we passed the the sixteenth amendment few decades later the says you can do direct taxes on income but all the other direct taxes are still not permitted unless their portion what is the difference between my income and my stuff well that that's what the court said in in in politics that struck down the the on apportioned income tax in the eighteen nineties because they said look if you have property and we can't eccentric like they get income from the property and we can doesn't make sense it's the same thing right right we can't tax a person directly beacon taxes income that doesn't make sense so that's what that was struck down it's only legal now because of the sixteenth amendment which carved out this one part of direct taxation and left everything else close so it's only about income tax they had to change the constitution to make it that direct tax could only be income right and it's it's pretty broad I think come on you know any kind of income you get they can tax and they do but it's got to be incoming can't be just property and that's why there is no federal

How Moonshine Works

How Moonshine Works

"First use of Moonshine the English word goes back to the fifteenth century literally meaning shine of the Moon and figuratively figuratively quote appearance without substance pretense or fiction and the first time it was used to refer to liquor that didn't occur until the eighteenth century England and it's specifically referred to illegal or smuggled alcohol. That's why the name because smugglers use the cover of night to smuggle their goods which didn't necessarily have to be moonshine yes but but <hes> smuggling alcohol was common in Europe at the time and smugglers had only the shine of the moon to guide their pass moonlight was sometimes used in the same sense <hes> as moonshine was until the nineteenth century a yeah and for a while there any job or activity that was done late at night might be called moon shining or moonlighting but eventually moonshine nine came to really basically mean booze and booze related activities and moonlighting came to mean that other thing that moonlighting means. I totally forgot about moonlighting yeah. That's true I I remember because it was a company any stipulation that you couldn't moonlight and I had to get a thing that I could that movie anyway. There's actually a folk tale from the time about a group of smugglers caught in the act of raking the pond pond Abe bond aunt for barrels of smuggled French Brandy <hes> than they were caught by some tax collectors in the middle of the Act yes and thinking on their feet. The smugglers pretended to be a group of confused drunk people trying trying to rake in the moon's reflection or in their drunken parlance cheese yeah yeah there were like nod dude. We're not there's no certainly barrels of brandy in there. We're just trying to get the sweet cheese out of this pond rea- so drug rug this bulletproof ploy obviously worked and the clippers labeled the smugglers as moon rakers win about their merry way. I'm sure laughing about all those silly drunk. People and Moonshine was often typically. We made night in hopes. No one would see smoke from the stools yeah <hes> it got its start in America in green producing states like Pennsylvania yeah immigrants from England and Scotland and Ireland who settled in Appalachia brought there whiskey recipes with them and adopted them for whatever grains were they were growing around here right and instead of letting excess green go to waste producers distilled it not only could you drink or maybe sell this stuff but in some places it was an accepted currency it could be the difference difference between surviving and not a big economic <hes> <hes> may not staple but but site game it was so in seventeen ninety one when the U._S. government you know seeing all of this implemented the whiskey tax in an effort to pay off the cost of the revolutionary war. <hes> people were happy about it. No no also thinks to this for letting me once again. Look up the Alexander Hamilton sound job because they say in their. Air Jefferson there's a cabinet and he says when Britain tax our T. we got frisky. Imagine what's going to happen. If you GONNA tax on Whiskey and it was true I mean this was right after the revolutionary war in some people's you you know like like mentality about it was like we just we just went to war about taxation without representation. Why why why are you going to taxes for this now yeah and it was a big shifts from it was basically states? Rice versus versus a federal bank and so we are still figuring out a lot of stuff you renew country <hes> and yeah we talked about this in our Bourbon whiskey episode so yeah people didn't like it. distillers resorted to all <unk> sorts of things to evade tax the point the U._S. Marshal descended upon Pennsylvania coming to collect and his presence was not welcomed five hundred men attacked the home of the local tax inspector general and during the skirmish the group's leader was killed which escalated into a protest made up of over six thousand people President George Washington sent thirteen thousand troops to deal with the situation who yes US yeah. All of this was part of the Whiskey rebellion in eighteen o one the U._S. government repealed the whiskey tax <hes> and this was one of our new countries. I test yeah the whisky rebellion whisky rebellion. We're serious about it yard in before and after this though moon shining really took off in the south tales were told about gunfights between collectors trying to get excise taxes for moon shiners in the eighteen sixties these skirmishes increased as revenuers came around trying to collect excise taxes for the civil war a yeah during an after the civil war times were particularly hard for a lot of Americans and there was again a lot of resentment from people who were scraping scraping to make a living off of things like moonshine towards these taxes <hes> and moon shiners came together with the Ku Klux Klan as this conflict against the tax collectors and crew and several battles ensued as desperation went up Moon shiners became more ruthless and violent in their tactics attacking Iraq members and their families and anyone who they believed may give away the location of a still and this did not India moonshine owners to their communities and the public opinion started to shift towards the negative end when it came to moon shiners at the same time temperance is getting more and more public support yeah in the Georgia Mountains in eighteen seventy six four fifths of the court cases and federal law enforcement focus was on illegal alcohol well yeah <hes> wanted to mention too wasn't just a man's world now no take Nancy and see the moon shiner. She was <hes> in New Jersey in eighteen eighties. Her neighbors largely regarded her as eccentric and I can see why because under the cover of night she would steal <music> apples and use those apples to make what she called Jersey a lightning or applejack okay yes that is a my little pony by the way a detective on her case snuck onto her property but nancy knocked him out and go Nancy. We can't help but root for them. <hes> then there was moonshine Mary a Polish emigrant out of Illinois who made moonshine insult shots of it out of her home for fifteen cents but but she went on to become the first woman in that state to be convicted for selling poisoned liquor and as we've discussed before women were also involved in the transporting of illegal alcohol <hes> there's Willie Carter sharp who gave testimony to the nineteen thirty five moonshine conspiracy trial with diamond studded teeth diamond studied that you know I nothing but respect aspect. I couldn't pull it off. That is about as America as you get. I think you're at a moonshine. You've been arrested well firearms which she was and he was show time Tate Yup yeah you do. You're right. You're right but here we come to the Nineteen Twenty s and prohibition right for Moonshine. This was the best thing that could have happened now that you couldn't buy alcohol Oh by legal means more people were seeking out illegal sources for their booze and Moonshine had been rocking that for for a while yeah already demand was so great moonshine resorted to water down alcohol and sugar-based moonshine as opposed to crane based species with passwords and secret ways to escape in case the authorities ever showed up and organized crime around the smuggling and sale of alcohol flourish yeah <hes> in hot spots like in one <hes> Franklin County Virginia Virginia. It's been estimated that ninety nine percent of the residents were involved in the moonshine trade during this time and so that's a lot of kids as well you know okay okay <hes> during the one thousand nine hundred thirty s moonshine roots from Dawson County which is the big city from where I grew up and our high school rival- they gallons of Moonshine to Atlanta and my very own home county of Lumpkin okay was big and the Moonshine seen thirties and forties as well and also distillers sometimes use the bone from raccoons Venus. Yes they do have bones they do in the distilling process of the man in Dawson. Bill gave me a history lesson and like I said he had one in his hat <hes> and yes like. I said he had previously worked for NASA PRETTY COOL Yeah Yeah. I think that I think the the penis bone is is used to help control the flow of the spirit from the condensing hose into the collection vessel like at the end of the process process. I think that's yeah that's he showed us how to use what it was used for sure. I don't know but yeah I think that was that was it was the right size without right yeah yeah and it's Kinda got this little like s curve IRV shape so so and and sort of a little groove in it where the urethra goes so I I read a surprising amount about raccoon penises during research for this episode never know go well there. You are your life profession. I sometimes I sometimes hope that like some government. Official has to look at my search. My searches someday to just go like Oh dear what oh I don't even know me too. I like to imagine there's one person assigned to you and you're just making their life. Super Interesting disturbed well. You're welcome so back to moonshine right anyway. Business was booming until prohibition was repealed in nineteen thirty three then sales flattened that didn't mean it went away much of the federal government <hes> who tried to wrangle this moonshine situation into the seventies share without these laws prohibiting alcohol although there are still dry counties and they're obviously we're back then going to the trouble of seeking out moonshine for the average person just. This wasn't worth it yeah. In order to transport as much moonshine as possible mechanics would find tune their cars upgrading the engine adding in secret compartments for the product <hes> shocks and springs were installed to protect the booze and accounts of oil slicks smoke springs these are called tanker cars and were frequently unassuming nineteen forties fords. I think I read this whole thing about Henry Ford being like a teetotaler rain like being so offended about the yes that's fine and drivers who were also called runners are trippers had to have some real driving know how some sweet news as they say to evade the authorities they also had to know all the mountain backroads well enough to drive them in the dark without headlights. One of their moves was called the bootleg turn a quick turnaround into controls kid eh in their spare time these drivers would work on their skills by racing against each other sometimes at fairgrounds sometimes for pay sometimes with thousands of spectators so okay once prohibition went away and in World War Two ended there was this group of skilled drivers who have souped up cars and enjoyed recent each other who saw that people would pay to watch them race and they were in the market for a new job a Ha so in nineteen she forty-seven this gave birth to ask supposedly the winner of the very first race used the same car to make a run like a week previous. Oh my goodness I love it. I do too. I I had no idea about this when we rolled up that distillery and there's all the NASCAR memorabilia this is interesting but for real moonshine in Nascar are and were tight Raymond Parks Moonshine was the first is to bring together a formal official racing team.

"Alexander Hamilton said nation, which can prefer disgraced a danger is prepared for a master and deserves one. Now, let's set the record straight. There's no argument over the choice between peace and war. But there's only one guaranteed way. You can have peace, and you can have it in the next second surrender. Admittedly. There's a risk in. Any course we follow other than this. But every lesson of history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement. And this is the specter are well, meaning liberal friends refuse to face that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war only between fight or surrender. If we continue to accommodate continued to back and retreat. Eventually we have to face the final demand the ultimate them. And what they? When Nikita Khrushchev has told his people he knows what our answer will be. He has told them that. We're retreating under the pressure of the Cold War and some day when the time comes to deliver the final ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary. Because by that time, we will have been weakened from within spiritually morally and economically. He believes this. Because from our side he's heard voices pleading for peace at any price or better red than dead or as one commentator put it he'd rather live on his knees than die in his speed. And therein lies the road to war caused those voices. Don't speak for the rest of us you and I note and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains. And slavery. Give nothing in life is worth dying for when did this begin just in the face of this enemy or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs should Christ refused. Cross should the patriots. At concord bridge thrown down their guns and refused to fire. The shot heard round the world the martyrs of history. We're not fools and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop. The advance of the Nazis didn't die in vain. The road to peace. The simple answer after all. You and I have the courage to say to our enemies. There is a price. We will not pay. There is a point beyond which they must not advance. This.

"Welcome back this is the ben shapiro show so every week here on the bench approach show we talk about a federalist paper because it's good for all of us to be a little bit more literate about the founding today we're going to go through federalist twentyeight alexander hamilton writes this one the vast majority of them he continued with his arguments about the strength of the national government with an army under the control of the legislature so there's a lot of debate over who should actually control the national army should there be a standing army a lot of people very afraid of this because they thought that it would suck power away from the states and he makes one very interesting argument says if the representatives of the people betray their constituents the argument here is that we can't have the legislature control the national standing army because if we do then this will allow legislation run roughshod over the states so how hamilton writes if the representatives of the people betray their constituents there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of selfdefense which is paramount to all positive forms of government and which against the user patients of the national rulers may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual state he's talking about the right to resist his for all the people out there on the left you say that there was no inherits resist there's no right to bear arms keeping bear arms for use against the government alexander hamilton is explicitly talking about that he's talking about if the legislature were to surp the powers of the people the people would stand up and the reason you want a national standing army as opposed to state scanning armies is because it is actually harder to fight against a state standing army than it is to have the states act as the gobetween for a battle against the national government in reality that's exactly what happened during the civil wars lot bloodier zoos national national government versus the states but the argument here is even deeper than that and that is that you do have a natural right to resist a government that usurps your fundamental rights and if the government does usurp your fundamental rights that's the reason that you need to keep and bear arms as a root as a root cause.
