Is The Constitution Really Too Hard to Understand?

Understanding the Constitution can be a daunting task when you have to reconcile that understanding with Liberal positions. The Constitution does not prohibit the people from electing Liberal or even Marxist representatives. However, those elected representatives’ powers of legislation are limited to the powers enumerated in the Constitution.

Many who oppose the Founder’s vision for America seek an out by claiming they don’t understand the so very clear and concise proper English grammar expressed in the Constitution. If one admits they do understand they cannot then suggest that it means other than what the words say.

Ask the person what portion of the Constitution he is having difficulty understanding and then offer to explain what the words means using the federalist and anti-federalist papers. Start with Article 1 Section 1 which explains that Congress’s legislative powers are constrained to the Powers herein granted.

Section. 1. All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

A modicum of knowledge of American history and the Declaration of Independence goes a long way to understanding the Constitution.

When a person (most progressives) reject reality, he must recreate a separate reality suitable to his own beliefs/dreams/Utopian wishes in order to have some kind of existence. These self-created realities constantly conflict with actual reality causing this personal dissonance we normally refer to as abject stupidity.

As stated numerous times above, the Constitution is the very definition of precision and clarity. Middle schoolers are capable of understanding it.

I find it impossible that Klein would or could possibly look at the Constitution any other way. It would be impossible for the Constitution to mesh, in any way, with his psychedelic/dream state of a mushy mind.

He is the perfect example of artificial intelligence created by an idiot.

Thank God he doesn’t understand it; if he did we would all be doomed. He is a virus infecting humanity and cries out for the legalization of paleonatal abortion of all progressives.
