You're such a transparent fraud - you can't even memorize the verbiage you're trying to regurgitate; check with wherever you get your party line - they probably speak of a monolith
, not a "megalith" (sic) and they can't be talking about "adding levels" to inertia unless they're as ignorant of the second law as you are. In the circumstances I would actually worry if you had anything good to say about Mrs Palin - fortunately you don't.
Sorry to offend you, but the big stones of government, meant to send a message of permanence and immobility hasn't the value of a flim flam man in tinny shoes.... This government does not forbit parties, but neither does it provide for them... It established the Senate to provide resistence to democracy, in the words of Washington, to cool it... The house was meant to grow with the population, but the parties found that unmanageable, so they limited the growth of government... Where our founding fathers and the generation after had a ration of one representative for every 30K, we now have one representative for every 600+ K of population... And these are elected from districts deliberately divided by the parties to deny a majority to the opposing party... Some districts are drawn to give an overwhelming majority to the minority part to make many districts safe for the reigning party... The fact is, we are denied representation, and the fact is that parties manipulate districts to deny the opposing view any vote, and I don't care who is in charge, because if a district is divided it should send twice the representatives, one from each point of view, minimum... If our primitive fathers could afford a more numerous house than ourselves, we could afford more ourselves, and instead we have less, which makes a sellers market for them but does not help us a bit...The parties are an extra constitutional change to our government, and they changed the government to suit their purpose, which has not helped the people a bit... Palins blaming of the victims does not help anyone except her...We are all victims of government by party, and that is the game she plays...
