    1.In Glenn Greenwald's “With Liberty and Justice for Some; How the Law Is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerfu,l” our Liberal friend, Mr. Greenwald makes the astute point that what the founders feared most was that a centralized federal government would erode liberty, forcibly override local rule, obliterate self-governance, and transgress every limit. The Constitution was the attempt to prevent that.

    The folks today who call themselves Liberal or progressive, are far and away the most fascistic, imperial bunch we have seen in our nation, since Woodrow Wilson.


    2. On view for all to see is the imposition of government regulation to the detriment of freedom of religion in the insistence that church institutions must bend their religious teachings to government will...the first amendment of the Constitution, notwithstanding.

    a. And, this example of government overreach:
    "North Carolina officials have said there was a misunderstanding when a preschooler’s homemade lunch was sent home for not meeting certain nutritional requirements, but now a second mother from the same school has come forward exclusively to The Blaze to say the same thing happened to her daughter."

    3. One more clue as to the direction these absolutist autocrats plan to take this great nation can be seen in their house organ, the NYTimes:
    "In a move that has shocked many Americans, the New York Times has published a hit piece against the US Constitution and its “outdated” ways.

    The hit piece comes on the heels of a sitting justice [Ginsburg] of the Supreme Court recommending multiple other constitutions and human rights charters to Egypt over the very constitution she is tasked to protect."
    New York Times: "Constitution is terse and old, and it guarantees relatively few rights"

    a. "The United States Constitution is terse and old, and it guarantees relatively few rights. The commitment of some members of the Supreme Court to interpreting the Constitution according to its original meaning in the 18th century may send the signal that it is of little current use to, say, a new African nation. And the Constitution’s waning influence may be part of a general decline in American power and prestige."

    4. Just as Woodrow Wilson suggested we cast aside the Constitution, here, from the current anti-Constutionalist, Barack Obama:
    " But the Supreme Court NEVER VENTURED INTO THE ISSUES OF REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH AND MORE BASIC ISSUES OF POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC JUSTICE IN THIS SOCIETY.”

    “And to that extent as radical as I think people try to radicalize the Warren Court it wasn’t that radical it didn’t BREAK FREE FROM THE ESSENTIAL CONSTRAINTS BY THE FOUNDING FATHERS IN THE CONSTITUTION, at least as its been interpreted and the Warren Court interpreted it in the same way that generally the CONSTITUTION IS A CHARTER OF NEGATIVE LIBERTIES SAYS WHAT THE STATE CAN’T DO TO YOU. WHAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CAN’T DO TO YOU. BUT DOESN’T SAY WHAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OR STATE GOVERNMENT MUST DO ON YOUR BEHALF.“
    BARACK OBAMA SAYS CONSTITUTION FUNDAMENTALLY FLAWED NEEDS REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH IN RADIO INTERVIEW « Digital Press

    And, more recently:

    “Our Founders designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change than I would like sometimes.”
    Obama: Founding Fathers “Designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change than I would like”

    Beware, America.
    If this administration gets another bite at the apple....history has shown the result of totalitarian rule.

    Beware.
