Moore Disses Constitution
RCP Video ^ | 7-24-012 | Moore

Posted on 07/25/2012 2:10:09 PM PDT by Sir Napsalot

"I think, first of all this must seem odd to people in other countries that we view our Constitution as if it was written by God himself. That it was somehow, through some sort of divine intervention or whatever, it was etched in stone like Moses and the tablets. And because what they thought was right in 1776 to 1789, that is the way we have to live today in the 21st century," Michael Moore said on the Tuesday night broadcast of CNN's "Pier Morgan Tonight."

"I mean, we wouldn't go to a doctor and have him put leeches on us to suck the blood out of us because that would cure us, that's what they did, you know, a 150 years ago," Moore also said.

"We've kind of evolved," Moore said.

Couple of things:

1. The zoning commission called and are demanding you install another buthole.

2. “I mean, we wouldn’t go to a doctor and have him put leeches on us to suck the blood out of us because that would cure us, that’s what they did, you know, a 150 years ago,” Moore also said.

Well, actually we are doing that once again. Why? Because it works.

3. The Constitution was inspired by God who gave inalienable rights, which our brilliant founders recognized.

In spite of Moore believing the Constitution to be outdated, betcha dollars to donuts he still likes the parts about “all men are created equal” and the phantom language declaring that abortion is a woman’s right.

But I bet his fat ass will want that outdated 1st amendment so he doesn’t get tossed in jail for the crap be puts out, or the one where he would have to have a trial by jury or no cruel and unusual punishment.

Oh, and 18 year olds voting? Bet he likes that one a whole bunch.

Just plain dumb. How many amendments now?? And how many times has it been brought to the Supreme Court.

It is bit of an over-reach, I suppose, to expect someone with the "accomplishments" of Michael Moore to understand that without the Constitution, there is no Federal Government!

That reality probably also escaped his host.

These people are no better than a very, very bad joke.

The US Constitution created the greatest and most prosperous nation in history by simply giving people the inalienable rights,of life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness under a limited government. I doubt Moore can show any other example of government that has done as well. However to Moore and his ilk the 100+ year old “wisdom” of Carl Marx is still relevant despite its history of failure and creating misery.

In the not so distant past, Mr. Moore would be locked up for sedition and treason! What ever happened to that doctrine?

Moore is such an idiot!

In the 1800’s, leeches used to be the state-of-the-art medicine. But even today, their blood-sucking abilities are still in demand by doctors.

He is an uneducated fool!

The strength of our Constitution is that it is timeless and did no harm to the civil society. Our Framers understood and dealt with the good and bad of human nature.

slander, libel, treason, sedition, false witness, and incitement to riot are not protected speech.

Michael Moron’s sainted terrorists in Iraq LOST. The US did NOT leave bloody with our tail between our legs as he professed we would and should leave.

>>The US Constitution created the greatest and most prosperous nation in history by simply giving people the inalienable rights...<<

Excuse the correction, but the Constitution gives no one any rights at all. It enumerates certain rights and specifically prohibits the government from infringing on those rights while reserving all other possible rights to the people or to the states.

The notion that the Constitution ‘gives’ anyone rights is extremely dangerous because it leads s#itheads like Michael Moore to believe that they can eradicate our rights with the stroke of a pen. A task that is made all the easier when people on our side enable that kind of thinking.

Not much difference between the rants of Michael Moore and Axis Sally. She was convicted of treason after WWII.

Actually leeches are still used efficaciously in some cases today.

Of course our Constitution does not tell us how we have to live - it prevents self- appointed dictators like Moore from doing so. I suspect that’s his real problem with it.

From the Declaration of Independence: That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed

The Constitution lays out the terms under which we consent to be governed. If it's no longer binding on the Federal Government, it's no longer binding on us either.

The Constitution is to protect us from the Government, and by the same token, to protect the Government from "we the people."

They'd better be careful about denying its continued validity.

Moore is showing his fascism here. The Constitution addresses this very thing in that it provides a mechanism by which it can be modified and even replaced.

Heck, even Thomas Jefferson said that there should be a new Constitutional Convention every 20 years/generation or so. That it's STILL our governing document is a result of two things, the good one being that at it's core is still the worst way of doing things ... except for every possible alternative and the bad one being that due to the duplicitous philosophy of it being a "living document" it's been stretched out of all proportion and interpreted to the point where most Americans don't feel any desire to change it.

If Moore doesn't like the Constitution, he's more than welcome to put his money into convincing people of the need to change it through the appropriate means ... rather than on ham sandwiches, donuts and Ho-Hos.

This doesn't surprise me. Liberals reject the very concept of principles. They will occasionally speak of them, but only for the sake of political gain.

Our Founding Fathers had seen their Colonies go from freedom to what they considered oppressive tyranny in about 40 years. They designed the Constitution to prevent something like that from happening again.
