” The attached article seeks to provide cover for those who would happily do away with the rule of law in this country. That the idea that trashing the Constitution, probably the greatest document of human liberation there has ever been, is given prime ink in the Times is no joke. We should be paying very close attention.
(From The New York Times)
AS the nation teeters at the edge of fiscal chaos, observers are reaching the conclusion that the American system of government is broken. But almost no one blames the culprit: our insistence on obedience to the Constitution, with all its archaic, idiosyncratic and downright evil provisions.
Consider, for example, the assertion by the Senate minority leader last week that the House could not take up a plan by Senate Democrats to extend tax cuts on households making $250,000 or less because the Constitution requires that revenue measures originate in the lower chamber. Why should anyone care?
We should care because the Constitution was written to make things difficult to get done. That’s the point. It seeks to restrict government fundamentally and that is why people like professor Seidman are for throwing it into the dustbin of history. They want the shackles (such as they remain at all) off. They want the state to be able to do whatever the state wants to do, whenever it wants to do it. “
What Would Thomas Jefferson Think?
” James Madison, in his letter of October 24,
1787 to Thomas Jefferson voiced concerns:
“a majority… united by a common interest
or a passion cannot be constrained from
oppressing the minority.” His words have
now been proven justified.
In writing the Declaration of Independence,
Jefferson, guided by Thomas Paine’s
‘Common Sense’, laid out the grievances
against the king, many of which have now
been foisted upon us by our current rulers.
President Obama, with new found
empowerment from his recent victory, now
has the flexibility he sought, without the
constraints of seeking reelection. The result
will be a more all encompassing
government ruled by those who favor state

David G Owens : Unapologetic American
” It’s been said many times that we have a very important decision to make in regards to the direction of America. We have come a long ways since the day our Founding Fathers stood up in defiance of tyranny; we have experienced triumph and defeat as a nation. Complied of those seeking liberty from all corners of the earth, America has stood strong as a beacon for all who seek freedom, yet we stand on the verge of losing our own.
Bluntly speaking, we have a president who apologizes for our successes as Americans, who demonizes hard work and dedication by those who flex the muscles of capitalism through discipline, dedication and years of hard work. Since our Founding Fathers established the foundation of America, we have built earth’s greatest nation on the notion that each man is entitled to equal opportunity, not equal results.”
A wonderful look at some of our founding fathers , what they risked , what they accomplished and why they were ” Badass” as no recent politician could ever be .
