    Thank you for further exposing why your far left, wackaloon self has so few thanks and rep points.:lol::cuckoo:

    The Constitution will ALWAYS be a majority conservative document. Find a passage or clause where it mentions single payer health care, totally open borders, amnesty, virtually no military, and THEN you'll have a case.

    And HuffPo=EPIC FAIL. Bias source cites bias "experts" FOR BIAS BS. Try some variety dude.:lol:

    Oh yes,...whenever I want to understand the finer points of constitutional law I come here to read the deep thoughts of you guys.

    Everything the government does is illegal, and the SCOTUS simply missed that for the last 225 years.

    Thank god you scholars are here to set the Supreme Court right.

    To be sure, the powers of the federal government under our Constitution are not unlimited -- the Constitution establishes a central government of enumerated powers, and our States play a vital role in our federalist system -- but the powers our charter does grant to the federal government are broad and substantial. And, since the Founding, the American people have amended the Constitution to ensure that Congress has all the tools it needs to address national problems and protect the constitutional rights of all Americans. Eight separate amendments expanded the enumerated powers of the federal government, giving vast powers to the government to protect equality, civil rights, and voting rights, and to raise funds through taxes on income. Many Tea Partiers disdain these Amendments -- or even want to repeal them -- but they are just as much a part of the Constitution as the language written in 1787. When the new members of Congress are sworn in this week, they will swear to uphold the entire Constitution, not just the parts written in the 18th century.

    Very well said. You realize then that the Supreme Authority is not the Court, but the will of the People, that the Whole construct of the Federal Authority, is by Us, for Us, and We have the final word, even if it be by Amendment or Convention. That's a start. There is hope for you. Let us battle Tranny and Injustice together Brother. Hop on board. ;) :lol:

    Let's start with Election Reform. One Citizen, of age, one Vote. I. D. Required. Felony for Voter Fraud or Election Tampering. NYC just came up with a new Ballot, it has issues, yet there is promise there, and Accountability. It's a start. State Conventions have issues with Voter fraud too. Maybe we need a Law to stop people from voting in more than one State Primary per Election Cycle. The ACORN's need to be shut down, Fined, and forced to pay restitution for the Messes they create at Voters expense. Let's start there huh? What do you say?:eusa_whistle:

    What even more people fail to understand is the COTUS is politically neutral, neither conservative nor liberal. It sets forth no policy, it dictates no agenda, it merely provides a broad framework for the existence and operation of a government. What we do with it is wide open.

    Wow, you'll believe anything, won't you?

    The Constitution is a liberal Document. It follows along the lines of 'Classical Liberal" which is not the same as today's progressive liberal. In fact, today's progressive liberal is as antithetical to the Constitution as King George and the English Parliament was to the fledgling American country.

    A Classical Liberal can be considered the same as Conservative's of the past and some who today adhere to small, limited government with emphasis on States Rights.

    The Constitution IS NOT A LIVING DOCUMENT! Even brain dead 3rd graders know this.

    Afraid you are wrong there

    The Constitution is the culmination of the original document, amendments and two centuries of legal interpretations

    Sorry....but you can't ignore legal precedents
