Michael Tanner, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, describes, in his piece "Democrats: The Constitution Is ‘Weird’", how Democrats and leftists are baffled by arguments that the Constitution ought to be relied on in practice. Some examples he brings:
"[T]he federal government can do most anything." --- Rep. Pete Stark (D., Calif.)
"I don’t worry about the Constitution." --- Rep. Phil Hare (D., Ill.)
"There’s nothing in the Constitution that says that the federal government has anything to do with most of the stuff we do." --- Rep. James Clyburn (D., S.C.), saying this approvingly, not as a criticism of the illegality of "the stuff we do."
"Are you serious?" --- Nancy Pelosi, being asked where in the Constitution there is a permission for Obamacare.
"I hope your committee will not permit doubts as to constitutionality, however reasonable, to block the suggested legislation." - Franklin D. Roosevelet
Frankly, these Democrats (and Neoconservatives) ought to be convicted of sedition. These people took oaths to uphold the Constitution!!! How is this not perjury and sedition?
As I said, however, Neoconservatives are just as guilty, playing the world's sheriff and trying to ban everything the Bible condemns, even though the Constitution provides no warrant for any of this either.
