Louis Michael Seidman: Time to scrap the constitution

I first thought this was going to be some kind of parody.† It isnít.† My first clue should have been that it was published in, you guessed it, the New York Times.

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.

Actually there is nothing wrong with the Constitution.
What we need to do is scrap Congress and the rest of
.gov along with the Lamestream media and syncophants like
Seidman. Wouldn’t hurt my feelings a bit if he was among
the first batch to dangle and swing.

Here’s an idea. Set them to work coming up with a new constitution. Not only will the resulting document have tremendous entertainment value, it will keep the little xxxxxxxx’s busy and not screwing up our country any more. They get a sense of accomplishment, we get a good laugh, then we burn theirs.

“Time to scrap the constitution.”

No, time to kick some liberal ass. Don’t like the constitution? Then get the hell out of the country! You’re not welcome here anymore.

kept us from debating the merits of divisive issues and inflamed our public discourse.

In other words, we on the right don't agree with you.

Gotcha.

Everything they discussed openly in the NYT 20 years ago has come to pass. This is not a casual offhand remark, it is a plan. This will end in violence unless they give up the course they are on. They are actually determined to end the constitution. We are living in a slow-motion, home-grown communist revolution.
It’s reality, as clear as watching a car speeding towards a brick wall. I hope people like him are targeted at that time, and not just the poor cops sent out to do the bidding of idea men like him. It just seems more fair!

This Seidman apparently wants to put the US on the fast track to totalitarianism. Why is an idiot like him allowed to teach constitutional law, anyway?

*Someone* on here (FR) has a vimeo link in his/her tagline. If you run across it, make sure you watch the video.

I really wish I knew who it was or I'd direct you to it.

Since Louis Michael Seidman Doesn’t like the constitution he shouldn’t be allowed to speak freely

I’ve seen that one. Amazing video. Sure answers a lot of questions and is worth the time.

Misc. comments.
Seidman is all over the place re the Constitution. He says to scrap it and rely on customs, etc. I think that is called “Common Law”.

Using England as an example of anything relevant to orderly rule is not very smart. The government can collapse on one vote, or when one party, faction, etc. gets pissed at someone and takes all their marbles and go home.

Also, the marxist labor movement in England, for too many decades, ran the Labor Party and the country, into the ground. They were also an unchallenged Fifth Column, operating in the leadership ranks of Labor on behalf of Moscow.

{I just opened myself up to criticism because AFL-CIO leader Richard Trumka is a hardcore red, and former thug leader of the United Mine Workers of America. However, even his iron rule met significant resistance from the non-marxist unions and government rules concerning strikes that affect the national security/economy).

The Constitution may be old, but there was a lot of collective wisdom put into its creation and final version, plus the Bill of Rights.

It is the Democrats who have refused to abide by the rules, not only of the Congress (i.e. Holder not prosecuting the thugs of the Black Panther Party for voter intimidation, among others; resisting legally ordered document production from Congress; and protecting the President when he ignores Congress and the Constitution), but also the White House’s undercutting ICE, Homeland Security, and the Border Patrol from doing their mandated jobs properly.

Georgetown Un. Law School, over the past two decades has taken a decidely leftist turn, including hiring well known communist/marxists/sympathizers (Rev. Robert Drinan, a certifiably psychopathic Jesuit priest and lawyer, former congressman; David Cole of the CPUSA legal front (National Lawyers Guild) created offshoot, the Center for Constitutional Rights (loaded at its birth in 1966 with old Communist Party attorneys, sympathizers and proteges; Castroites and even a few Trotskyites & Maoists).

Whether Seidman is that far left, I don’t know, but his thinking is similar to that of avowed marxist CCR leader Michael Ratner, among others. They use the Constitution to destroy it, try to interject international law and other countries laws into our system, and personally support the most law-restricted countries in the world includingt Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, the Soviet Union/Russia, and Nicaragua, among others).

What is really needed is a national debate on the relevancy of the Constitution today. I’d love Mark Levin and a few others on the conservative side to take on Seidman, etc.

It would be really informative if done well. I’m reminded of the Prof. Arthur Miller (GWU) townhall seminars on the law that appeared on TV about 10 years ago. Very well done and thought provoking.

The American people have to be reminded of the long struggle to define our country’s legal basis, judicial system, governmental structure, and how the Constitution has kept us running despite ocassional hitches (Watergate, Bill Clinton’s impeachment, and Fast & Furious).

We are a good country but are under many attacks, from without and from within. The Left, now aided by the covert Moslem shariaists and jihadists, has undertaken a full frontal assault on every basic American political, cultural, historical and economic foundation stone, and they are succeeding beyond their wildest dreams.

This needs to be exposed on a national scale, in a national forum. The American people must be awoken from their stupor and stupidity, in plain language and through understandable examples and incidents, if we are to survive as the America we know it, or become Obama’s Marxist-Lite version on the way to the heavier stuff (Obamacare’s punishments should be the searchlight in the face on what has been planned for a long time and what is yet to come).

Seidman should not be ignored. He has opened a door. The only question is what goes through it, an American 18-wheeler with the Constitution written on its side, or a Cesspool cleaning truck driven by Obama and Company.

Time to stand up for the Constitution and America, or get ready for leftist tyranny from the bench.

Full length movie, 90 minutes. But it will suck you in and the time will fly by. Make a cup of coffee and sit down some time. Very worth the time.

That Movie last summer “Obama’s America 2016” eexplained who Obama was. This movie is the companion piece that completely explains who found Obama and put him into office and why. People need to face it, as a person Obama isnt very bright, ambitious, or educated. So he only got where he did because an organized group got behind him and thrust him forward. This film explains who they were and what they were about.
Mostly it was a 4 decade effort by honest to goodness dedicated American communists.

Scrap the Constitution? If that’s the case, then all bets are off, and anything goes. Be forewarned. Good luck with putting the genie back into the bottle.
