The fascists are out of the closet. If we discard the constitution, fascism is all that’s left. The republic, branches of government, checks and balances, due process, the Bill of Rights, Enumerated Powers and the entire foundation of over two centuries of order are gone. What will fill the vacuum will be either the executive or the military. Either would be a dictatorship.

My only solace in these times is that treasonous idiots are identifying themselves. They will be brought to justice.

CBS RUNS SEGMENT CALLED 'LET'S GIVE UP ON THE CONSTITUTION'

Might as well have called it...

CBS RUNS SEGMENT CALLED 'LET'S START A CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA'

Same difference.

That was a nice post.

The reason so many people don't know history or it's importance is because it's not being taught to them.

Our schools have failed us.

The media, who really should know better, but don't, have failed us.

Our leaders have failed us.

This, obviously, is a prescription for disaster.

Personally, I don't see how we can avoid bad times ahead, but let me remind one and all - our freedom, that which we were born with, is our birthright, unlike so many other nations in history that have fallen by the wayside. We should instinctively know that something is wrong when others try by any means possible to deprive us of that which is ours.

Let me repeat that - that which is ours!

People are buying guns by the millions because they know in their heart of hearts things are going bad, and if we follow this path and leave it unattended it's end will not be a good place at all.

People know.

I could ramble on all night here on this subject, but just let me close by saying this country is ours, the protestations of Sam Donaldson and the like notwithstanding, and in the end, subversion will doubtless be met most resolutely.

If the nation falls apart, I think America's enemies overseas will be paralyzed, more than anything, by the cataclysm they'll witness. What will come in it's aftermath? Who knows.

But I am a free man. That's how I've lived. That's how I'm going to die.

CA....

They should have just titled it, “Let’s give up on personal freedom”, or “Just let your betters enslave you”.

I’m tired of “these people.” That’s the only way I can put it without delving into a string of obscenities that will get me reprimanded here. I’m to the point where sometimnes I think we should just says, “OK, let’s go to the alley/parking lot and rumble.”

So can I stop my paying my taxes?
Can I shoot liberal politicians?

If the Constitution means nothing - then nothing done in its name is legitimate either.

They’re going to take our government because no one in a position to stop them is going too. :(:(:(:(:(

Disturbing that CBS (and the NYT) is bold enough to run this opinion. :(:(:(:(

We have REALLY gone down hill. :(:(:(:(:(

Yeah let’s get rid of that doggone “freedom of the press” thing, it’s so outdated. Everyone now knows that the truth doesn’t matter and CBW et al are just mouthpieces for tyrants.

So let’s get rid of that, what could the Framers have known 200 years ago about Cronkite and Rather, right?

I hope no one is watching or listening to anything that comes from CBS in any form. Actually, I stopped listening/watching a long ago to anything that is connected to any of the network stations. jWhat else can we do to smother CBS?

This Seidman is a total jerk, but it's hardly shocking that CBS, the network of Dan Rather, would make him into a media celebrity.

Fortunately, the framers of the Constitution had a heck of a lot more intelligence and common sense than he has. Without the Constitution as a framework for republican government and the supreme law of the land, there would never have been a United States as we know it (or more accurately as we knew it). Instead, we would be just like any other of the many dictatorships that have been the curse of mankind throughout recorded history, rather than a uniquely benign society devoted to liberty, prosperity and dignity of the citizen.

What difference does it make if Obama isn't a natural born citizen? Hey, Seidman, just look around you. The framers of the Constitution sensed that a President without unquestioned American roots might well act counter to the interests of the United States, and, as Obama's rash disregard for the country and its Constitution has proved, the framers had keen foresight.

> Are these treasonous pukes for real?

Unfortunately yes and they blindly follow their messiah and are not good at foresight as to what the consequences of their actions will be. I’ve never seen such a naive and gullible generation as the one being groomed for servitude that we have right now. They are being led to the slaughter and don’t even realize it. I wonder how Moochie feels sleeping with the Anti-Christ every night.

Yes. They disrespect the “old dead white guys” who forged the nation and our Constitution, BECAUSE they know the founders are right and they are evil vermin.

Why do you think racist Obozo hates white guys? He is the racist Liar-in-Chief and he serves the Father-of-Lies.

When “the right people” want him exposed, it will happen.

excerpt:

Honesty, honesty — what more can we want in argument and politics? In election season, I’m always pleading for candidates to campaign honestly. To just say what they believe, whatever it is. If you want a socialist state, or a European-style social democracy — say so, forthrightly. Make your case.

It’s the Alinskyism — the deception — that’s so awful.

When Nixon lost the California gubernatorial election in 1962, an aide tried to console him. Nixon — who had been vice president for eight years and loved the big, global issues — said, “Oh, that’s all right. At least I won’t have to talk about crap like drug abuse anymore.”

Obama’s winning reelection must be a relief to him. Never again will he have to say things like, “America is the greatest nation on earth.” In his two campaigns — 2008 and 2012 — he always said them, when he had to say them, like a hostage with a gun in his back. He might as well have blinked “T-O-R-T-U-R-E.”


good response, zero lies because if he told the truth, no one would have voted for him.

I can see some advantages here.

The US Constitution is the charter document of the United States. You join the USA by signing on to it. End the Constitution, you dissolve the Union.

Since there is little common ground left, it would be nice if red and blue could go their own ways.

A HEARTY AMEN TO THAT BROTHER!!! Even on FR some have raised the suggestion of a “con-con” lately. I delight in going on record as considering that to be a very, very misguided idea.

When you have a prescription for a medicine that is known to have worked without fail for over two hundred years anytime it is used why on Earth would you throw it away and demand that a new prescription be written in a committee meeting open to every kind of quack in existence?

Our problem is a gangster government that refuses to recognize any kind of limits, how can people imagine that that problem can be fixed by changing the nature of the limits that they refuse to obey? If you draw a line in the sand and the bully steps over it do you simply draw another line? To me it is mind-boggling that anyone could seriously suggest that we ought to do this. This seems so obvious that I don’t even consider it a matter of opinion unless you consider the sunrise to be a matter of opinion.

Can you imagine a Constitution rewrite by Pelosi, Obama and a few RINOs? Granted we have quite a few red states out there. However i would see nothing good coming out of it from our perspective. These liberals are on a transformation roll. Whats next? Immigration and gun control. Then VAT and global warming taxes. We have no one fighting for us.

If we’re serious about saving out country, the first shot should be to deprive the Media companies of income.

Satellite TV and cable TV must lose their funding. We don’t control them and we can’t change them. Why give money to Obama’s henchmen and women?

If not for the media, it is likely there never would have been a president Obama.

It would not be about the content, but the process. I met with a vp of the ford foundation once and he shared a little of their involvement in rewriting several African constitutions. His comment was, “We did it right and involved everyone in the process, it wasn't just a bunch of white guys sitting around the table like ours.”

Let’s give up on marxism and all those who support it by whatever name. I will keep to the Constitution. Anyone who does not or will not is a traitor to the Republic. Shout it from the rooftops using every media outlet there is. Use the own despicable Alinsky tactics against them. There is no place in our republic for them and their ideology. Freedom of speech is one thing; subversion is quite another.
