Ezra Klein is an idiot wizkid. He has no idea what he’s talking about but sure has convinced a whole lot of folks that he knows something about something.
When did it become the common knowledge in this country that in order to know what the Constitution says, we need lawyers and judges to tell us? There is no way that anyone can convince me that the Founders wrote this document so that NONE of us could understand it. This document was not written to keep the populace in the dark about their God-given rights. No way – no how!
But Ezra says that it’s too complicated and written in an old fashion-y way and it’s over 100 years old (no, Ezra, you brilliant 26 year old, poli-sci grad, it’s over 230 years old) so therefore, it’s irrelevant today. And it’s confusing.
Confusing to liberals, yes. Because they are having a difficult time finding ways to twist the old fashion-y text to fit their changing attacks on our rights.
Irrelevant? To progressives, yes. They continue to write law that has no basis in the Constitution. And they are not ashamed to tell you so, either. Just take note of the comments from Congressmen and Senators who state that they don’t consider the Constitution when making law. You’ve all heard and seen those clips of Pete Stark, Pelsoi and others.
Ezra also says it’s non-binding. Non-binding to progressives yes, as they try to find loop holes around it, while they try to tie us in knots by restricting our rights. How can the reading of it at the opening of the 112th Congress be non-binding?
The Constitution is binding on every person who takes an oath to uphold it, Ezra, you stupid jackass! It’s binding every day that those men and women are in session and every day those same people are writing and voting on laws that effect our lives.
Tell me, you big dummy, (now I’m channeling Levin) when in any of our daily lives is that document non-binding? It’s the only thing that is keeping a Chavez-like regime from really taking root in this nation.
Lastly, someone tell me when it became okay, in fact fashionable, to be a self-avowed communist in the body politic of this nation? As a caller asked last night on Levin, how can a communist (or some variation of that – a marxist or socialist) take an oath to uphold the Constitution? It is in total ideological opposition to the communist ideology and therefore, a communist cannot make an honest and truthful oath to uphold our Constitution.
