"That's a suspect claim, since the majority of industry, transportation, and population resided in the North. Agriculture isn't much of a "tax base." Especially when a good chunk of the population was human property, not tax…"

"Well, for one they had a few with the Manliest chin in Hollywood, Bruce Campbell, a few years back. Not to mention, Old Spice was one of "Dad's Colognes." The Old Spice Whistle is my message alert on my phone, everyone knows it."

"Maybe his game is to say what the other candidates can't, so that it's platform... but it's not? Kind of a red herring to get the base fired up. Which... is funny. The strategists always talk about "firing up the base." The…"

"You do know how loosely the courts have played interstate commerce before? For squashing Jim Crow, a business that purchased anything that came from out of state and resold it was classified as being involved in interstate commerce."
