THE TRUTH: Progressives Want To Destroy The US Constitution

December 31, 2012

Many people in America have known for a long time that the fascist progressives who have taken over the Democratic Party despise the United States Constitution. It stands in the way of everything they want to do. Obamacare is a prime example of something the constitution should have prevented but the progressives and their allies in media managed to intimidate Justice Roberts into punting.

For the better part of eight years, progressives screeched about Bush and Cheney shredding the constitution. Yet now that they control the Senate and the White House, that’s exactly what they want to do. They hid their agenda well and the media helped them greatly but with Obama about to kick off his second term, progressives are obviously feeling emboldened to let it all hang out.

Today, the New York Times printed an op-ed piece by a progressive professor of constitutional law from Georgetown (land of Sandra Fluke) named Louis Seidman. This is not parody…

Let’s Give Up on the Constitution

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? Why should a lame-duck House, 27 members of which were defeated for re-election, have a stranglehold on our economy? Why does a grotesquely malapportioned Senate get to decide the nation’s fate?

Our obsession with the Constitution has saddled us with a dysfunctional political system, kept us from debating the merits of divisive issues and inflamed our public discourse. Instead of arguing about what is to be done, we argue about what James Madison might have wanted done 225 years ago.

As someone who has taught constitutional law for almost 40 years, I am ashamed it took me so long to see how bizarre all this is.

That last part is a lie. This isn’t some sudden revelation on the part of progressives.

This is what they want. This what they’ve always wanted.

You might say they want to… fundamentally transform America.

    Dead on (no pun intended). I’m surprised, though, that you didn’t mention the progressives in the Republican Party as well.

      Thanks for your comment. On your political point, wake me when a Republican says “Let’s give up on the Constitution.”

        you’re right. however, saying is one thing and doing is altogether another. the proof is always in their voting record.
