And the progressive fucked that up in 1913 when they took the right to fill the two senate positions away for the State legislators and in doing so eroded the 10th amendment to virtually nothing.

No, I think he wakes up every day thinking, "how can I further restrict freedom today?" Every step he can take closer to the government of the former USSR is a step he likes to take...
