Throw Out the Constitution
Yes, maybe the U.S. Constitution just isn't useful anymore. Maybe we don't need it at all if we are to allow the government to control our lives and pass legislation unimpeded by unimportant clauses of the Constitution.
Well, we at the Objective Conservative happen to believe the U.S. Constitution is the most important document conceived by any government in history. We believe it truly defines what federal government can do and is legally empowered to do. We believe it truly reflects the notion that we the people do have rights and that we confer certain responsibilities and authorities to a limited federal government, not the contrary where a federal government confers certain rights on citizens.
Regardless of what powers and authority we have allowed the federal government to usurp and assert over us in the past, we believe that what we face today with the government take over of health care and 17% of our economy is a CRISIS. It is a crisis that in the end will determine the viability of the U.S. Constitution and the very determination of who, the government or the people, really has the power to decide whether government flows from rights given it by the people or whether the rights of the people are simply deferred on them by government. If the latter is the case, maybe we should just throw out the U.S. Constitution and let The Prince of Peace Nobel Laureate Commissar Barack Hussein Obama, Comrades Pelosi, Reid and associates write a new one that defines what rights the government truly wants us to have (which would be few in none).
Okay, we opined enough and now we suggest that you take a look at a column that caught our eye today, 'Can Obama and Congress Order You to Buy Broccoli?' by Terry Jeffrey. You can find it at: http://townhall.com/columnists/TerryJeffrey/2009/10/21/can_obama_and_congress_order_you_to_buy_broccoli?page=full
We'd also suggest that you take a look at a column today by Walter E. Williams, 'American Idea' wherein among other things he says:
"The debate centers around questions as whether such involvement is a good idea or a bad idea and whether one program is more costly than another. Those questions are entirely irrelevant to what should be debated, namely: Is such government involvement in our lives permissible under the U.S. Constitution?
"That question is not part of the debate. The American people, along with our elected representatives, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats, care less about what is and what is not permissible under our Constitution. They think Congress has the right to do anything upon which they can secure a majority vote, whether they have the constitutional or moral authority to do so or not."
