    What would you make of someone that claimed you can not have committed a crime unless you are convicted in court of said crime?

    That claimed that because the Constitution uses the term "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States..." that this then gives the Congress unlimited , unrestricted powers to do ANYTHING they want?

    That insisted that the term " the people" meant an individual right everywhere in the Constitution EXCEPT the 2nd Amendment?

    That insisted lying under oath to a Judge was not Perjury unless charged with perjury and convicted?

    What would you make of such a person and their education as a college graduate of the United States, especially if they had studied law?

    Just curious.

    I'd make that they are of the "it ain't a crime if you don't get caught" school of ethics and philosophy.


    I'd agree that it gives them unlimited, unrestricted power to legislate anything they want. However, it still must be signed by the President and in many cases pass the constitutionality test of the Supreme Court. Remember the whole checks & balances thing? The only other check on Congress is held by the voters that put them there.


    Hypocrite


    See: It ain't a crime if you don't get caught.


    I've known too many college educated retards and uneducated smart people to be influenced greatly by education level alone.
