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.

I had to stop reading after that, but it did make me chuckle (c). Friggin' white slaveowners!

The rule of law is an antiquated notion anyway. I think that we can all agree that we need something far more flexible and dynamic so that it can adjust to the whims, I mean, needs of the current split second.

The rule of law is just fine as far as liberals are concerned.

It's the rules FOR law they seem to have a major problem with.
They really do believe in mob rule, it is really quite scary, they really just want it now and have no concern for consequence.

My daughter at the age of 3 was significantly saner about the entire concept of responsibility and consequence.

Again, very very scary.

Let's just let the President decide on a 'prudent' course of action, and have Congress rubber stamp it.

We, too, can be like Cuba, North Korea and Venezuela....and the old Soviet Union....


Let's react with knee jerk reactions. Don't like the shootings in CT? Make it a crime to own any gun that can kill children!..there, that will solve the problem. Then go confiscate them all. Even better. And while the jackboots are doing that, they can check every home for illegal drug and paraphernalia. ANyone with Mother Jones news - off to the slammer for subversive literature. Membership in the NRA? Guilty. Hunting magazines...guilty!.....no trial needed.

We need to 'solve' this problem so let's trash the constitution, go after the 'drug dealers and users'......fine them tens of thousands. One pot butt....$10,000. An ounce of weed? 10 years in jail and million dollar fine!...there, that will solve the problem. Midnight raids, and 24/7 jackboot squads hitting the 'crime' homes around the country.

Who needs rights? We elected Obama. He'll simply take the 'wealth' and redistribute it. He'll do it via Executive Order.

If the average American only has $8000 in savings, and you have more..well, yours will be redistributed. why not?

we go on 'fairness'. Whatever the welfare weenies want, and they are 50%, they get. Right?

I didn't read the article (no need to) but I bet I know which amendment they believe to be an anachronism and/or evil...
