Comrades, This is most upsetting to me! How dare anyone question the supremacy of the state or of its' authority. Who do these racist, misogynist, xenophobe, right wingers think they are? Stating with the new congress, Republicans will require every bill to cite its specific constitutional authority, a reminder to color inside the lines drawn long ago by the Founding Fathers. Needless to say, this is most upsetting to those of us on the progressive side for several reasons: -how degrading that we must defer to the Constitution -Once a bureaucracy is in place we know it's hard to get rid of -Let us pass whatever we want and let the Courts worry about the rest -Why remind people we are suppose to care about it -We do enough hard work already passing bills we don't read These are most troubling times indeed!
