But Progressivism is about turning us all in to beggars.
Why make government larger on purpose? You keep saying you want less government.
Do you have any grasp of the vast size of the civil service? Probably you do not.
Anyway, you haven't read and understood my reply, and I'll save my time with the rest of yours, since you clearly don't grasp the point of the Ezra Klein comment.
If you're casual with that kind of fiddling while the country burns, whine not about the smokey air, sir.
The state grows under conservatives, and it grows under liberals.
How, practically, does he differentiate between a Progressive and a Progressive? The state grows, because the Federal Reserve borrows the money for the bribes, the 17th Amendment muzzles the States, the 16th Amendment gives DC eminent domain over your wallet, and the House has been frozen in size since 1910, so that it hasn't stayed representative of the people.

I'm afraid I thought your notion of "constitutional right to elect senators directly"=="getting people more involved in government" is so radically over-simplified that I'm not sure you're even aware of what is at issue. Votes are crucial, yes. However, we don't vote for SCOTUS justices either--why not? Wouldn't that be more swellness, by your lights?
Have you bought int Ezra Kleinism, the idea that, because the Constitution is more than 100 years old, it no worky-worky? There is a great deal of wisdom (and some foolishness, let's not kid ourselves) in that document. But the Progressives have Jacked. It. Up. We have 17 trillion reasons to point out that the line of hooey YOU support is done.
I suggest you put on your big boy pants, and give the matter some real thought, and quit quaffing Commie kool-aid.

"Bad Trip" is used to describe any situation where a person has an emotional experience that they are having trouble handling.
There's another definition- any situation where a person has such reduced cognitive ability that their actions preclude survival. The stereotype is the guy who thinks he is superman and tries to stop the locomotive, but other similar situations exist.
First *concentration* was 1938.
Morning glories did not evolve overnight in 1938, nor apricot seeds, nor any of the other plants this drug can be concentrated from.
