Destroying the Constitution is Obama’s unfinished business. Remember what he said in 2001? He trashed the limits within the Constitution to more significant federal government welfare schemes and “redistribution” of wealth. To get rid of the Constitution, Obama and his minions have to destroy the legitimacy of the Founders.

“But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf, and that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that.”

In every society there will be winners and losers.

The beauty of our society, is that we have documents which limit the abuse our government can inflict on our populace.

Is it perfect? No. Does it always protect us? No. Is life in the U.S. perfect? No.

That still doesn’t prove it is flawed. Folks can present to me a better framework if they can find it. They won’t.

We have the most protective system in the world, and the Soros cabal is intent on destroying it.

You’ve got to wonder how stupid some folks can be to sign on to this.

Anything for a buck I guess...
