Well, you’re right, but I’m not quitting yet. We keep kicking away at it and eventually people will realize that they’ve got more rights than they know about. They don’t need to know it all, just give political support to those that do.
I think we need to approach Constitutional Law under the same auspices that we’ve used with the 2nd Amendment. A guy like Aaron Zelman was considered a nut. The first time I wore a Hitler gun control shirt people went nuts. They didn’t want to be on a elevator with me. Now people get it.
There needs to be a committed core that relates government abuse back to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I think the focus should be on the Commerce Clause and the 10th Amendment. You already have legal scholarship on it and, via Clarence Thomas, a SCOTUS Justice that is leading the way. He’s the most influential Justice in a half century.
We need books, little pamphlets like Stephen P. Holbrook’s on the 2nd Amendment, built on the Tenth or just the Commerce Clause. A little history mixed with some judicial philosophy and real life cases. Tell the story of FDR’s madness and how we still suffer under it.
We’ve also got to get kids out of government schools and the government out of the business of education. We turn them over to liberals and then have to claim them back. I’m not crazy about Romney, but he’s made some noises about vouchers. They’re the first step toward educational liberty.
Oops, I did not mean to imply quitting at all.
Off topic here, but there is no doubt in my mind that Freeper/Tea Party pressure on our congress-critters is the sole reason Eric Holder may soon face some unpleasant music. With enough applied heat, our reps will respond.
Dittos re: Thomas.
