Constitution is perfectly clear when the left discovers new governmental powers in there. When it doesnt, its confusing.
The Constitution ois confusing to leftists because it does not grant total control over every aspect of a citizens life by the Federal Government. They lack the ability to grasp the concepts of freedom and liberty.
An excellent point.
Well, it is chock full of “negative liberties”.
In the actual words of the Constitution, in the words of the Federalist Papers and in the actions and writing of other creators of the Constitution, one thing is very CLEAR in the intention of the US Constitution: our government is designed to be a LIMITED and CONSTRAINED operation. The Founders had experience with an expanding and controlling government in the British and wanted to forbid such expansion against our own citizenry.
Nothing is more of an anathema to the current Progressive / Liberal than a constrained central government. For them to achieve their “best of all worlds”, they need a government that they will control as the natural political masters.
As such they MUST DIMINISH the US Constitution into a dated document that is more a shadow of an ideal rather than the SUPREME LAW of this Country. This is but one of a storm of attacks, past and future, that will be sent against the United States Constitution as the “Pole Star” of our governance to make room for their expansionist ideals of a more ‘able’ government.
It is especially confusing
IF YOU NEVER READ IT!!!!
