New Media Push: “Give Up” on Constitution

The New York Times just ran an editorial, “Let’s Give Up On The Constitution.” I don’t think this effort can be considered some kind of anomaly. Virtually all of the media campaign for gun restrictions is based on precisely the idea that the Constitution has no relevance for public policy. So I see this article written by the professor of constitutional law at Georgetown University, Louis Michael Seidman, as simply cover for what is already going on.

“Imagine that after careful study a government official — say, the president or one of the party leaders in Congress — reaches a considered judgment that a particular course of action is best for the country. Suddenly, someone bursts into the room with new information: a group of white propertied men who have been dead for two centuries, knew nothing of our present situation, acted illegally under existing law and thought it was fine to own slaves might have disagreed with this course of action. Is it even remotely rational that the official should change his or her mind because of this divination? Constitutional disobedience may seem radical, but it is as old as the Republic. In fact, the Constitution itself was born of constitutional disobedience. When George Washington and the other framers went to Philadelphia in 1787, they were instructed to suggest amendments to the Articles of Confederation, which would have had to be ratified by the legislatures of all 13 states. Instead, in violation of their mandate, they abandoned the Articles, wrote a new Constitution and provided that it would take effect after ratification by only nine states, and by conventions in those states rather than the state legislatures.”

Notice how ungrateful and judgmental we are asked to be. It reminds me of a teenager using his parents’ faults as an excuse for disobeying them. And notice also how on the one hand, these dead white men are unworthy of constraining us, but, on the other hand, we’re supposed to follow their example when they (according to our author) committed treason against the Articles of the Confederation.

Furthermore, virtually every government on earth was formed by conquest or in some other unsavory way. Our author’s reasoning means that virtually no authority on earth should be obeyed.

There is so much wrong in this article, I can only mention a few things. The author actually appeals to John Adams’ Alien and Sedition Acts as a reason not to be restrained by the Constitution! Those laws were horribly un-American, but maybe now that Obama is pushing indefinite detention and kill lists, those laws are going to be praised as “progressive.”

And then this: “No one can predict in detail what our system of government would look like if we freed ourselves from the shackles of constitutional obligation.” Who is this “we”? The Constitution doesn’t shackle us. It shackles the government. The article pretends to aim at liberating the people, but it actually advocates that the government be free of any restrictions on its authority. And since government is the power of coercion and threatening with lethal force, by freeing government the article advocates enslaving the people.

I have only begun to point out the flaws in this article, but I don’t have space to do much more. I think it is telling that nowhere does this piece mention the Second Amendment. In the context of our present hysteria, I think the right to bear arms is undoubtedly one of the author’s primary targets. He just doesn’t want to admit it.


  • John Mayer

    The man is right! Why should we respect the moral judgement of the people who wrote the constitution? They DID own slaves, showing them to be very immoral people.

    • Screeminmeeme

      John Mayer.......

      What sanctimonious drivel.

      And what shortsightedness. You want to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

      Bad, bad idea.

      They were sinners, just like you! A five minute talk with your family would reveal that you have feet of clay just like the rest of us.

      You want to throw out the whole Constitution because some of the signatories owned slaves. Yet that same Constitution, written by flawed men, provided the way to ultimately outlaw slavery. Our Democratic Republic works... if our leaders are willing to interpret its governing document as the Founders intended, and not twist and distort it to their own opinions.

    • Bob

      No more immoral than the monsters like you who support those who murder babies.

    • Kent2012

      when are we going to get slaves again, it seems like an excellent way out of the economic slump....

      • Nathan Hale

        I agree wholeheartedly, but only if the slaves are people like John Mayer.

    • cyoder

      Most of them didn't, and most of them were very moral people.

      • fatman45

        Not only that, but slavery wasn't considered immoral back then. And before John Mayer starts in on that being precisely why we should ignore the Constitution, let me point out that it wasn't written in stone. It provides a mechanism for change - the problem is those who would change it like him and this egghead that wrote the article don't want to use that mechanism because it would require a consent of a supermajority which they know won't stand for their proposed changes!

  • John Mayer

    America's very construction was a terrorist act ... America was built on the backs of slaves and on the burial grounds of the human population that was nearly made EXTINCT in order to make way for our ancestors! I don't support what my ancestors did but that was then, this is now. This country needs a NEW constitution written for a new day and PRESENT reality.

    • Screeminmeeme

      John Mayer...Yowsa! your justification for a new, improved constitution is flawed. You presume to know better than the Founders. Amazing chutspa.

      One could only imagine what sort of Constitution the left would come up with. What America needs are elected officials who simply comply with the Constitution as it stands now....or have a referendum to amend it.

      BTW: Murder, slavery, pain and human suffering have been man's history from day one. Every nation, at one time or other, belonged to someone else and blood was shed to defend/conquer it . Most civilizations were built on slave labor. Class divisions were always an issue...until democracies/democratic republics were created. Doesn't make it right...just the way it was.

    • wisewoman

      And you aren't a slave now? And you probably voted in the very people who are going to make your slavery worse. Wake up. Trillions of dollars spent, more tax money taken at the point of government pen; and more, far more, to come if Obama and his ilk have their way.
      We Do Not have a not-enough-income problem. We have a SPENDING problem, with more to come. Our elected representatives are giving themselves a raise while the rest of us get money deducted for Obamanation Care and more spending on often useless "investments" (think GM, Solyndra et al). We also are supporting a whole lot of people who don't want to work, or are smart enough to have figured out that they get more money just handed to them than they would get if they were gainfully employed. What, no jobs available because wealthy people are taking their businesses elsewhere (think Obama's "pal" Jeffrey Immelt)? Tax them and they will leave. California is losing businesses and people because of their excessive taxation -- this in spite of California actually being a nice place to live. Wake up before it is too late.

      • Kent2012

        still beautiful, and will be even better when the congestion leaves, but it will be a total welfare state then, no business, just the dole

    • Mike6

      President Roosevelt said that America has a negative Constitution. He proposed new positive Constitution to Congress in January 1945.
      FDR's document resembled Stalin's constitution for the Soviet Union. Stalin's positive document allowed the NKVD to starve to death 5 million hard working, rich, God Fearing Russian kulaks in the 1930's on the richest soil on earth. Stalin needed to rob their wealth to build dashas for the Party, spread the Revolution and to manufacture the massive 65 ton Marshall Vorosholov battle tank to conquer the world

    • BUBBA

      The only Constitution the librals want to write is a Communist Manifesto. I'm a Vetran of our military and still live by the oath I took when I enlisted. I will protect this Country from Domestic and Forien terrorists If that includes the present Governmet then be it. I fought for your freedom ,I will fight for mine. Just remember that most of the law abiding gun carriers in this country are ex- military, we know how to fight and what combat is.

    • http://www.facebook.com/leprecaun14456 Robert Myles

      And just who do you support for writing this "New Constitution" John? I don't see any man in our national Government that i would entrust just such a monumental task to. when people disagree with what is in the constitution amendments are propsed voted on and ratified by a majority of states. That was how prohibition got started and also how it got repealed. The constitution however remained solid as it was written

      • Kent2012

        how about Sitting Bull, oh wait a minute, he is dead. We could have nancy pelosi write it, but then she would want it voted in before we get to read it. hillary ?, no she would put us off with one lame excuse after another. HEY I GOT IT, this is great, hold on hold on, We can have billy ayers write it, What do you think huh???

    • cyoder

      The North was the more prosperous part of the country, and it was not built on slave labor.

        sush now, you will disturb the fantasy......

    • mari

      John,

      Who gets to write this new constitution? We are a country harshly divided. (We haven't had a budget in 4 years.) One side wants the government to be unshackled from constitutional constraints, the other side wants to return to the freedoms for individuals that the constitution provides. If you know anything about history, then you cannot deny that any place that is under total government control (I don't care what you call it, socialism, communism, fascism, monarchy, slavery, or theocracy) ends up being oppressive for the populace. There is an enormous chasm between these two groups, an enormous power struggle.

      Just remember that once those freedoms are gone, you can't get them back, because our freedom is our power. Whether it is freedom of speech or religion, the right to bear arms, the vote, due process, and all the amendments that limit the three branches of government. Without these defenses, shields, and weapons we are at the whims of our leaders. They might be benevolent and caring and we would be ok, but what if they are megalomaniacs? Could you live with that?

      Your idea that because we have some ugly, intolerable areas in our history, that that negates the validity of the constitution, I say it is a greater reason that we need our constitution. Ugly, evil acts are part of human nature. There is no religion, political group, culture, race, country, or quilting bee that does not have some deplorable activities in their history. History books are full of these horrific accounts. Our constitution takes the frailty of man into account and makes a way to correct our mistakes. No other country has such an option. Their only option is revolution (at one time that was our only option). Evil is everywhere we have recourses.

      • Kent2012

        The second revolution is upon us, idling off in the distance, slowly moving in....

    • sackmane

      hey dope! what we need now is rid ourselves from anti-American trash like you...and our old & present constitution allows that to happen!!!u dope!

      another load of manure from a pseudo-intellect. more of the tonto crap and with out slaves America would be just another rat-infested hell hole like 7/10s of the world today. next you will tells us that Real Americans stole all we had from africa and asia and south america

  • John Mayer

    Have a happy new year everyone! ... I love you guys , this political divide we have is what makes America so edgy and great! We are both so very passionate about what we believe in ...

    Lets learn to continue to disagree but you can disagree without being disagreeable. That's my new years resolution. Shine our light on the ugliness in the world - Don't BECOME that ugliness!!

    • Bob

      You already are that ugliness by supporting the greatest evil ever - the democrat party. You are also part of that ugliness because you present only those "facts" that support your case rather than the whole truth. Typical liberal.

    • sackman

      we real Americans need to wipe out u liberal bastards...soon! we have the right to use our guns to protect our constitution even if it means to take people like u out 1st...thats the power of our constitution...u jerkoff!

      Same to you, hope that the coming year is not all that it is forecasted to be, but turns out well for every one

  • John Mayer

    I'm not violating your freedom, you're violating MY freedom. You aren't free to make my world unsafe by proliferating dangerous assault weapons throughout the society in which I live! When your so-called "Freedoms" make me unsafe, they aren't freedoms.

    • John Mayer

      especially when the type of people who support the so-called "freedom" have the proclivity to violence or to threaten violence as much as 2nd amendment advocates do. You DO NOT have a freedom to make society less safe.

      • Nathan Hale

        A famous American once said "Those who would trade their freedoms for a little safety deserve neither". John, I think you should consider moving to Canada. You have shown yourself to be un-american.

I have a near new AK47, with 30 round banana clips and a new bushnell scope and some really hot full metal jacket ammo that I am hoping to get into play. I sure wish the commies had come up with that neat little grenade launcher that you can get on an AR...........

    • Tiger716

      I'm not sure how you, John Mayer, feel that people who have legal gun permits endanger your freedoms or world. What are you opinions of the criminals who have guns, always will have guns, and don't give a damn whether your freedoms or world are threatened by them. Remember, the police are secondary responders. The crime has already been committed and perhaps the innocent persons involved, killed. If a law-abiding citizen has a gun for his own personal protection that is no threat to you or any other liberal. As a woman who travels an interstate alone and often, I legally carry, know how to use it....and feel a damn sight safer for having it. You might also consider that the shootings at Columbine, Sandy Hook, VTech and other places were gun-free zones. Had there been others on those sites with carries, far fewer people would have been killed. As for me, I will continue to support and stand for the Constitution that defends us from a government gone wild.

    • http://www.facebook.com/leprecaun14456 Robert Myles

      Tell me John in an average yr just how many death's are caused by "assault wepons" and how many are caused by Gang's with semiauto handguns and illegal full auto handguns. Sandy hook was a trgedy indeed and never should have happened, his mother ignored the signs didnt secure her firearms in a way that her deranged son would not be able to access them. she paid the ultimate price for that as sadly so did 27 other's in the 'gun free zone' school. During Bush we did not have the assault's upon the Second Amendment that we have now. The NRA instead was fighting statge and federal laws to allow more concealed carry including in state parks. Read and be informed before you spout off about the nra or the other gun right's groups in this county. We wouldnt need them if it wasnt for liberals who seem to want to constantly chip away at our God given rights as outlined in the Bill of Right's. Yes you can exercise your first amendment rights here and you know why? because of the Second Amendment

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PSL5QT5E3RAJTWK7W624B323LM Dan from Ohio

        we have had a ban on assault weapons since 1934.What todays liberal press and politicans call assault weapons are cosmetically altered semi-automatic rifles.We only have two kinds of guns,automatic[assault rifle] and semi-automatic.To try and restrict guns to single shot would be like limiting free speech and limiting religion,it can,t and won,t be done,Our founders knew that the people must keep the government in check by allowing them to keep arms and use them ,if the need arises...to try and disarm todays people would start a war...

        • Kent2012

          modern assault rifles are not sold in the public arena. pretenda assault rifles are. there are some assault rifles that are from times past that are available, but we are the trained and organized and disciplined militia that our founders crafted into the constitution. Most of us are trained well beyond the small arms category.......

Then, because it was not a life or death situation, we would open the loading door and spin the cylinder for a quick ammo check. I am sure that just before you fainted dead away(pun) you would likely wet your pants....

  • John Mayer

    2nd Amendment gun rights at their basic level will not be going away. There will never be a time when a sane non-criminal won't be able to purchase a rifle to go Buck hunting. If you look at the past 4 years, no rights have been taken away. Obama signed into law a bill allowing guns in national parks -- so the fed has actually LOOSENED gun control.... AT MOST an assault riffle ban that was IN PLACE NOT TOO LONG AGO will be re-instated. AT MOST. This problem of gun violence we have in America is not going to be solved simply by stricter gun laws. It's going to have to take a system wide look at a WIDE RANGE of issues contributing to the break down that's occurring.

    • John Mayer

      By the way, I wholeheartedly support Obama for signing the gun rights bill. (Re: guns in national parks) ... I'm very much into the outdoors and feel much safer being legally armed when I go hiking. Why didn't Bush sign something like this??? What did Bush do for gun rights? Why weren't you NRA types complaining much about gun rights during his time in office? These are all questions I'd LOVE to hear answers to.

      • Screeminmeeme

        John Mayer....In another post you attacked me for supporting Bush. Just sos ya know.....I voted for him twice because I thought he was the lesser of two evils. I was opposed to the wars...both....and often wrote, phoned and emailed the White House to tell him what I thought. (I have no doubt I'm on a watch list somewhere because of my political views). His over the top spending and failure to close the borders were only 2 of many disagreements I had with him.

        As for gun control...Obama's position was made known in Illinois when he said that if he had his way, ALL GUNS would be outlawed.

Politicians are not enlightened beings. They are politicians and some are good, but too many are bad.

      Gun control is nothing but a naked and blatant grab for POWER!

      Once that is accomplished, our Republic is doomed.

      As goes the Second Amendment, so goes the entire Bill of Rights and Constitution.

      Respectfully,

      Mike Steele

    • MoabMom

      You are exactly right. The ones calling for gun control are not really against guns, they are all for the gov't being armed and their personal guards being armed. just not regular people. The politicians calling for gun control, all have people carrying guns protecting THEM! As GP pointed out a few days ago, Obama's kids go to a school with 11 armed guards. The average person have only themselves for protection. I am so tired of the hypocrisy of people like Diane Feinstein, who has a CCL but wants to tell me I can't have one.

      • Kent2012

        yes those hollywood types and the likes of billy boy maher need their gun totting guards because of who they are and what they say, but we are neanderthals for wanting weapons for self defense and to eliminate any communist government twits....oh did I forget the three remaining big time racists al"not so" sharpton, jesse"high"jackson, and the best of all of them louis "I"m a towel head communist racist pig" ferrakhan. we should round them all up and stop by the UN and pick up their "congo dancer" buddies and ship them to Benghazi

        • Doodlebug

          By then it will be too late. Let's hope we can get through to those we elected to represent us in DC. I don't know about anyone else but, I contact my representatives almost every day. I not only contact them but I also contact the Speaker, Majority Leader in the house and the Minority Leader in the Senate. I'm not overly nice either so I hope they understand that I will keep contacting them about the same old same old in hopes that they will do something about it. If you haven't done it, try it! The only hope we have is that if we bug them enough, they will see that we mean it. And if not, lets not forget to remember that when we vote. Out with the RINOs!!

        • John Mayer

          Why should they care what you have to say? You conservatives are the minority. You don't get to decide what happens to the majority.

        • Fred

          In our hearts we are not in the minority because when low information voters are surveyed, they actually are against what the Democrats, Obama and RINOS are doing. Go to You Tube and see for yourself. Too many people have been manipulated, indoctrinated and brainwashed. Know this Mr. Mayer...the truth always prevails in the end.

        • John

          You mean the idiot majority who voted the buffoon in again? Do me a favor. Read Mein Kamph, then compare it to things that Obama and his cronies say and do. Study the burning of the Reichstag, an event credited for sweeping the German Nazi party into power, and compare that to the political fearmongering in the US today. There is no difference. But you'll probably call us extreme who see similarities between the present-day American left wing and The Nazi party fo the 30's. If you aren't lazy, study up and learn.

        • Richard Downey

          Best one to learn from was a quote from one of Mark Twain's stories.....The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn......"Ain't we got all the fools in this town on our side?.....And ain't that a big enough majority in any town?"

        • granny

          The majority are under the ground & illegal. But then you nazi group are all about stupidity. How long do you stand in line at the welfare, food stamp line. Your ignorance really shows. We conservatives are what whipped the Nazis before....you can stand inline for that.

        • Doodlebug

          No, we are NOT in the minority. Of those who voted 47% voted for the conservative. obummer did not win by a land slide you know. There were many people who didn't vote at all. There were those who voted because they received handouts, those on food stamps and welfare brought in more votes and then there are those who voted more than one time. No were'not in the minority, we are just a group of people who believe in HONESTY unlike the dummicrat donkeys, especially the big one in the WH who tells one lie after another and when he doesn't get his way he hauls out his powerful, executive pen and signs whatever he wants. Take about a jerk, he is the biggest one! Down with obummer, save our freedoms!!!

        • Gunsmoke11

          There are other ways in which to Stop him and his Agenda..... The First is to assure that he is Legally a Natural Born Citizen and to have his Records shown as being Legalized Documents..... If he cannot show Proof, then he is REMOVED, Period...... If removed, all of what he has done is removed as well..... Impeach him for the Crimes he has committed so far and his lack of Law and compromising with our enemys, such as with Bengahasi or Fast & Furious.....just to name a couple of items..... Many other things is also been committed and should be held Accountable for....

        • freckles

          Accept that the very people who would have to approve of any investigations are part of the problem. Eric Holder would never sanction any of these actions and wouldn't it have to go through him? That is why nothing is getting done. Never has a president been more worthy of impeachment, never has a president gotten away with so much, and he's not even bothered by is in the least....I think he really thinks he is god.

          Jaywalking? It where he stops folks on the street and ask simple questions.

          In what country do you find the Great Wall of China? Where would you find the Panama Canal? It is funny the answers he gets but it really is pathetic how stupid the American public is...........and they vote and they reproduce!!

          Our education system, for the amount of money we spend, is a joke! We are so far behind the rest of the world it is unbelievable. I have to agree with Ted, a revolution

        • cowboytex

      • Dalgast

        I said it before through out history, there has been only one way to
        oust a tyranny, and that has been thru revolution, not the ballot box,
        not by writing your elected officials, no, by taking up ares against the
        tyranny that is why we were given the first Amendment in the first
        place. And that is why they are so dead set on taking the guns out of
        the hands they mean to enslave. Declaration
        of Independence “That whenever any
        Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right
        of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new
        Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its
        powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their
        Safety and Happiness”. That time has come again, it won't be as easy as
        it was before, and the price of liberty will be dear indeed. That is
        the price you must pay for the apathy and the disdain Americans
        themselves have shown for the gift of freedom.

      • Ted Crawford

        Saddly, Nadine, It seems that November 6 was Americas Event Horizon! When Obama takes the oath on January 21, it will be the culmination of a Downfall that began almost exactly 100 years ago! On March 4, 1913 America's first true Socialist President was sworn into office, on January 21 2013 our last Socialist President will take the oath! Actually, he will be our LAST President.! Oh I'm certain there will be other elections but they will be exactly like those in China, Russia, North Korea, Iran, Cuba and Brazil !
        The only people still clueless about Obama's true agenda are his coven of useful idiots. The G-20 and certainly the G-8 Nations will get fully behind the IMF's attempts to create the SDR's. Once that is a reality (probably within the next 12 to 18 months), our economy will make that of Weimar Republic, a much sought after goal!
        While Obama has engineered the economy, Ken Salazar, ET AL, through the BLM and Ben Barnake, through QE-3 (This one is multi- purpose. It also creates inflationary pressure on the economy) have assulted another primary pillar of a Free Society, Private Property!
        Coupled with the EPA, Department of Energy, Department of Education, ETC. unleashing a Tsunami of counterproductive regulatory policies, NO country can survive such an onslaught!
        By 2014 we will be living in a reality that most of us, even Obama's usefull idiots couldn't have imagined in our worse nightmares!
        WELCOME to the PROLETARIAT COMRADE !

      i think this has been happening at least since Kennedy was executed, we have been stepping more and more to total govt control. you can call it what you like, socialism, cominisium, facisism, corportisim. its basically the same, some morons controlling and telling everyone else what to do. both ruling parties, want to rule and tell us what to do, very little difference between the two, they both grow the govt and know better what to do with your money then you do. it is time for everyone to step up and become self-relient, grow your own food, get out of debt, store up some food, get to know your neighbors, learn what edible (weeds) plants grow around you. the solutions are not going to be found in some party or institution, its is up to us..

      • Phil

        rswallick, I have never heard it said better. To become self-relient is the only real solution. That may be difficult because the government does not want self-relient people around. This may be the year to stand up and fight or just give in.

        • Fred

          Never give in. Never give in. Never give in. To do so would be to join the enemy (Satan) and utterly foolish.

        The executive order that Obama signed in March 2012 declared that the gov owns EVERYTHING. ANY food that can be consumed by humans or animals, at any stage of its production. All land, all energy, all water, all labor - without compensation!!!!! That the government can confiscate and use at any point that they deem necessary for the national defense of our country, and then it goes on to clarify in instances of emergency or non-emergency. So answere me this; how could it be for national defense if it is non-emergency? You can read the executive order on whitehouse.gov. In that one executive order he basically declares that he is potentate, he owns everyone and everything and can do anything he wants, whenever he wants, for whatever reason he wants. He made us his slaves and he is living accordingly!!!!! READ IT EVERYONE, then poop your pants and mourn for the late great United States.

    • Mike Tanco

      Congress is as bad as our President. We need to remind Congress that there is an oath office taken by all Presidents. They swear to defend and uphold the Constitution. If anyone fails to do so, they should be removed from office. It's the law of the land.

And so far you "patriots" are too chicken to do anything about it! YELLOW COWARDS, THE LOT OF YOU!

        • Fred

          Wrong again Mr. Mayer. When a law is broken, that does not change the law. Criminals break laws everyday and the laws still stand.

          It's too bad that you are so unable or uninformed that you have to resort to name calling to try to get your point across. The only point you are making is that you are either ignorant or a traitor, or both.

          If you are in a majority, then where are all your like-minded buddies because there are very few of you gathering your information and commenting on this site and others like it?

          Oh yeah, they are sitting on their butts, one way or another, gratifying themselves, one way or another, all day long, everyday with their electronic gadgets, meds, alcohol, drugs, each other and etc., while they wait for their next government checks to arrive.

          Know this...God is in charge. And, over 85% of Americans consider themselves Christians. We are patient...very patient, because we know that God's will will be done.

      Again, impeachment is merely the trial. To do it, the Congress has to indict, or write the charges (Articles of Impeachment), then try him. Both parts of Congress participate.

      Now, realize that although the House is GOP controlled, the Senate is Democrat controlled, it won't matter which wants this impeachment, the other will nullify i NOTHING will happen!

      Our next step will have to wait until we can get the GOP in the majority in the Senate. Even then, I doubt any of our current crop of RINOs has the chutzpah to even CONSIDER doing anything!

      They are all so afraid of what will happen when ALL the facts come out! When we find where O-blamer was actually born, what under the table dealings have been done with Solyndria, etc,, what BHO meant with that unguarded statement to be passed to Russia's Putin, why Benghazi was allowed to happen, and so on!

      Then there's what 'special' deals may have been done for various legislators' supporters, and how the blowback may affect THEM! Do you REALLY think an impeachment will EVER happen?

      You aren't very old, are you? I was in Trenton NJ in 1990 talking to every representative I could, and protesting what Florio was doing back then. This has been a slippery slope, and just because the buffoon current living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is the slipperiest does not mean he started it. My 20 year old daughter criticizes me for speaking up and says I should mind my own business. This is the problem...a society that thinks this way. I explain to her that the first amendment is there for a reason...we aren't supposed to mind our own business in the political arena. We are ensured (for now) the right to participate and speak our minds. Of course, they've been trying to get rid of that right for years too.

    The Communist Takeover Of America – There are 45 Declared Goals

    Here are just 4 of them. Do they resonate with this story? Yes, of course. This crap started with Stalin and has proceeded ever since. Obama helps it along as he is “Fundamentally Transforming America”.

    It is time to call a Turd in a Punch-bowl what it is. The NY Times is Socialist Crap and so is Obama.

    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis
    to Russian history since the Communists took over.

    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the
    culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    Americans are well known for giving in. This crap by this anti American
    "professor" is just one small part of a barrage that will be levied non stop by the communists against the Constitution. It will be hammered into Americans 24/7 and there will be no real anti communist viewpoints allowed until Americans get sick of hearing it and just say yeah whatever, do what you want, just stop making us hear this stuff all day and all night. It has worked with every agenda they have pushed for, from legalizing immorality to legalizing illegals and America has proven time and time again that there is no reason for them to think that it won't work again. They literally own the senate and a good portion of the house and those that they do not own outright will readily sell out this country for money or favors.

    The Constitution is the contract between the People and their federal government. No Constitution...no contract...no authority....no federal government....and the power reverts to the People just as described in the Declaration of Independence. Be careful what you wish for....particularly when you are using you First Amendment Rights to talk about it! ....wait....that's what they mean my "useful idiots".....got it now.....

    • Cogitor

      If the Constitution is done away with, the United States will still be the government in Washington because the District of Columbia is not a state. The Constitution only applies in the several states. The United states government would only have jurisdiction in the District of Columbia, and the possessions like Guam, and the Virgin Islands.

      The only power that the US government would lose would be the 17 enumerated powers of Article 1, section 8, of the Constitution. It would still retain sovereignty in it's territories, enclaves, and possessions. That's what the traitors in congress want.

      The reason that they want it is that everyone of us has become citizens of Washington, D.C. or one of it's territories, giving congress total sovereignty over us.

      Read the article at this link, and try to understand it. It's not easy.

      The problem is that history hasn't been properly taught in 40 years, so no one, who graduated from high school after 1972, has a clue about what we are speaking.

        Spent much time in school board meetings? I have and can tell you that they are most concerned with kissing up to the school superintendent and making pretty, but too gutless to face the real problems head on and honestly. Check out the Alvin school district in Brazoria country Texas. They have a sneaky program that steals school bus transportation from little kids (9 miles from the school in my grandson's case) that are enrolled in a licensed day care facility so they can spend it on high school athletics! They will resort to filing false charges against anyone who has the guts to stand up against them! They did to me, but when push came to shove they were too C.S. to face me in court, asked for a continuence and the case was never called thanks to the crooked judge and prosecuter in their corner! BTW, when I took it to the TEA (Texas Education agency) they wouldn't touch it. What I learned is the function of TEA is the protection and enrichment of administrators.
        Just think how bad this is when you actually get involved in the education of kids!

    We have had an incompetent and lazy and indifferent congress now for two presidential terms. They follow blindly like sheep. They will not bring Obama's actions to a halt. They are wimps and a disgrace. Obama did not win a mandate, he stole the presidential seat with lies and the FBI failed miserably in investigating him if in fact they did and we have been stuck with an un-American man in leadership who is determined to bring down this country and all it has stood for this many years. He obviously is easily influenced by the wrong people, non-americans, and has learned nothing from what education he has had and

    our legislators are sitting on their hands, plugged up their ears, and covered their eyes refusing to take any action to stop this on going travesty against American law, our constitution, and procedures. I fear for our children's futures having been so greatly deceived into voting for him and supporting him out of their ignorance and arrogance and falling for the man's charming, empty, deceitful chatter.

Then the lame stream media will be up in arms. obama & crew are wanting full and total control over all the people and nothing less will do. Our Government and lame stream media are quikly becoming a enemy to America and both need stopped before it is too late.

  • PMDavis

    This has been one of my greatest fears is the dismantling of our Constitution and now the push to get rid of it completely. What can be done if our government has been infiltrated by socialists and marxists, through ignorant voting/fraud, and they have the votes and power to do it, what can anyone do to stop it? It is this country's law and Constitution because it has been honored and kept in place by those in power, but now we have a president and a lot of people that want to completely change this country and its foundation into a socialistic/nanny state and it looks like they are winning. How heart wrenching to see that they don't realize that it is precisely our Constitution, and God's blessing, that has made this country what it is and now they are sucking it dry. And itsTrue Americans having guns is the only thing keeping them at bay from completely taking over everything, in my opinion, and they are working on that now too, thanks to all these mindless tragedies.

  • pduffy

    The blog said, "Our author’s reasoning means that virtually no authority on earth should be obeyed."

    There is only one authority that "should be obeyed", and that is GOD. The Apostles said to the rulers of their day, "We will obey God rather then men". Man-made governments are all CORRUPT, and if you have not learned this one and only lesson of history, you need to suffer a little longer under its tyranny. Has not this "government by the people" proven to be a failure too? The constitution is not the issue any more than the 10 Commandments were the issue - it's the people, the people the people that are the problem. THEY don't want to be constrained by such laws as, "THOU SHALT NOT STEAL", so they write laws to tax, and the United States government is no different than that of the tyrant king of England.

    When the PEOPLE have the nature of God, instead of the nature of satan, then there will be no need of any "government", because the righteous don't need it.

    • Ted Crawford

      How then do you explain Romans 13:1? Seems that we are ment to obey laws, with the exception provided by Acts 5:29!

      • pduffy

        Foolishness. Using your argument, Adolph Hitler must be obeyed. There is NO requirement to obey an ungodly government at any time. If that's the case, then George Washinton and Thomas Jefferson were rebels against God. You mistunderstand the scriptures. When man's governmentn is not in conflict with God, then by all means, obey it, but when it's the source of evil, then you must, "obey God rather than men". Is that difficult to understand?

    - The United States of America is really 50
    sovereign states in a union and that union can dissolve just like the Soviet
    Union did. This article will give some possibilities how that break up can
    occur but there certainly could be other scenarios for this to happen.

    The major possibility is that after national
    elections socialist/liberal/progressive forces take control of the executive
    and legislative branches of government and soon thereafter the Supreme Court.
    They then would proceed to pass and uphold every sort of socialist legislation
    such as: hate speech laws, gun laws, immigration laws, socialized medicine,
    social activism and secular humanism agendas in schools and places of work,
    outlawing of home schooling, expanding social give-away programs, passing tax
    laws that burden the middle-class, implementing carbon restrictions and fees,
    increasing big brother/nanny state police powers and many other laws and
    regulations that subvert individual freedoms given under the Constitution of
    the United States for what they will claim to be the greater good of society.

    They will increase efforts to redefine the
    Constitution through activist judges. The courts will also rule that some
    rights under the Constitution are superseded by international treaties and law.

    They will muzzle politically incorrect speech
    and Christian proselytizing, subvert and brainwash our children with state
    approved text books and school programs and use national media for political
    and social propaganda. They will establish unfair tax burdens on the middle
    class in order to redistribute wealth to the lower class -- specifically to
    those on welfare programs, poor foreign nations and those people who arrived in
    this nation illegally. They will irresponsibly expand the money supply to pay
    increasing budget shortfalls, causing the dollar to lose much of its value.
    Their socialistic polices will create stagflation or hyper-inflation that will
    effectively wipe out much of the savings of ten's of millions of people.

    At some point in the not too distant future I
    surmise that a significant segment of the population will rebel against this
    government and start a secession scenario similar to what I suggest later in
    this article.

    U.S. Vulnerability - Liberals make up the majority populations
    living in large population states in big cities along both coasts. Those that
    will oppose this move to communistic fascist-like socialism will be those who
    make up the majority populations living in the conservative Christian rural
    heartland of America.

    A schism becomes likely between the two
    worldviews when it becomes obvious to the heartland people that the liberal
    coastal states will continue to control the American government and that this
    government will continue to pass and enforce despised amoral laws throughout
    the United States, regardless of state and local laws. It will especially irk
    those who believe in biblical moral standards and those who are strict
    constitutionalists. The heartland people will see national laws and regulations
    passed and enforced that will ever increase in scope to oppress the rights of
    freedom loving Bible believing people, corrupt their children, and rob them
    through unfair federal taxes and irresponsible federal monetary policy.

    Some in the heartland of America will not endure
    these things for long after they realize that the liberal controlled political,
    educational and media propaganda systems have stacked the deck so that the
    heartland people will not be able to have a major voice in the policies of this
    nation through any kind of civil democratic system.

    The likelihood that this break up of the union will happen before 2025
    A.D.

    The likelihood of some kind of breakup of the union is about an eight on a
    scale of one to ten. The likelihood that the U.S. will fragment into many new
    nation states, in my opinion, is about fifty-fifty.

    The counter-revolution from the heartland may
    start as a rebirth of the anti federal Government American Patriot Movement and
    the Libertarians that all but died out after 9/11. The leaders of the movement
    will address government circumvention of U.S. constitutional rights and it will
    gain an increasingly large following when muzzled Christian conservatives also
    identify with their message and some support the movement.

    The federal government will obviously oppose
    these constitutional militias or whatever they decide to call themselves and
    overreact against them with Homeland Security directed raids that will dwarf
    Waco. This will only help enlighten more people in the Heartland to the
    creeping government fascism that is taking control of government and it will
    spark secession movements in conservative states.

    As with prior federal agendas, they will
    threaten to withhold federal funds and use other coercion techniques against
    states that will not fully comply with locally unpopular federal laws. That
    will only alienate state representatives and legislators who will be under much
    pressure by the local people and cause them to threaten to cut off sending
    federal taxes to Washington. At some point one northern mountain state will put
    secession from the union to a emergency state referendum and it will pass. They
    will declare themselves a free state (like Kosovo) and invite international
    recognition. Other northern mountain states and some mid-western farming states
    might soon join with them and create a new union of states.

    The federal government will use every means
    possible to outlaw all this but any federal police-state like actions will only
    bring violence from both sides and bring international scrutiny. The U.S.
    government will not be able to use the military to resolve the split because
    the military will also be totally split on these issues.

    Shortly thereafter the Southwest states with
    large Latino populations will see this as their opportunity for their own nation.
    Even most of the Anglos living in the Southwest will not oppose the movement
    because most of them will be totally fed up with the way things are going.

    Indian nations will then secede.

    As the United States union fails, other regions
    of the country will see that they will need to form their own group of states.
    The east coast states could form one union and the west coast states another.
    The southern bible belt states will also start their own union.

    Some Canadian provinces could join with certain
    former U.S. states, Others provinces might stay Canadian or form their own
    independent nation. A northern Mexican state or two might join with the
    Southwest states and Mexico may have their own secessionist movement in the
    Indian regions of the South.

    For a while there will be the Balkanization of
    North America but at some point for the common good of everyone in North
    America most states will agree to join a new North American Union of states. It
    will start as a very limited form of federal government that will control
    trade, money and some limited social programs. It will not at first be
    dictating internal federal polices to the individual states.

    Much of the world will be having their own
    economic disasters and separatist movements and the weakened nation states will
    begin to look more toward regional branches of a world government. The regional
    branches of world government will allow local autonomy for nation states within
    global treaties. At least it will start out that way.

    By the way, although this would be more unlikely, the break up of the United
    States could come about from a completely different direction. The
    Conservatives could take control of America and return it to constitutional law
    and biblical moral codes. The liberal socialist states might then secede from
    the union.

    Other possibilities are that after terrorist
    attacks or a national economic crisis, the U.S. becomes a police state and a
    counter revolution develops against federalized police powers.

    Another possibility is that federal and police
    drug wars against increasingly powerful minority gangs could get out of
    control. There would be even larger incarceration of minorities then there is
    now with increased police powers taking away constitutional rights of even
    innocent people, resulting in a predictable backlash.

    The real point is not exactly how this breakup
    might happen. The point is that America is becoming increasing polarized
    between liberals and conservatives, religious and irreligious, law abiders and
    criminals, police and citizens, educators and parents, tax payers and
    deadbeats, control freaks and freedom lovers, perverts and non perverts etc. If
    this polarization of America continues to increase we will either have a union
    break up or we will soon be living under martial law.

    It is even likely that some states, counties and
    cities will break up into smaller local governments because the existing
    government will no longer reflect the people within.

The time is growing nearer and nearer to either arrest the foreign-born Muslim communist agent dictator Mr. Barack Hussein Obama II or run the risk of a national civil war in order to save our American ideals and our culture. And any parasite who thinks he or she is entitled to receive welfare benefits at the expense of the achievers in America, find yourself another part of the world to mooch on because, we achievers are sick and tired of supporting you and other nations.
    Let me leave you all with this known truth... Great nations of the past have destroyed themselves because of greed, corruption, and the total decadence of morality. If you read your ancient history you will know this to be true. If nothing is done, America is not far from self destruction.

    As you read all these comments posted here, similar to or identical to hundreds or more on the same subject, ask yourself, are these comments accomplishing anything more than to mollify the poster for a short while. Common sense, which is short in this country, indicates the time for BS posting is long past, the time to act is now but we have screwed around to the point where we are nearly too late. I would start it if I knew how, but I don't. We all need to put up or shut up. Let's start talking about how we can take this country back instead of regurgitating the same old crap over and over again. We already found out, what we already knew, that we can never take this country back by the vote. Now do we just give up and go along or do we fight? The posts we have been posting are worthless as far as the cause is concerned.

    OUTDATED CONSTITUTION? If it is
    stated or argued that a portion of our beloved Constitution is
    "outdated" or "irrelevant" because of the number of years
    since its passage then that same argument MUST be applied to ALL its
    provisions. I don't know that
    our Fore Fathers envisioned hi-cap hi-caliber weapons . . . or space travel and
    spy satellites . . . or MSNBC/FoxNews/TMZ/The National Enquirer . . . or on
    demand internet porn . . . and the list goes on. OR maybe, just maybe, they did
    "know" that change and innovation were inevitable and wrote our
    Constitution and Bill of Rights based on that belief, without specifics of the
    change and innovation but an understanding of the nature of man and the power

      Wonder what will happen if we only wanted the saying in the first amendment to read,freedom of speech only. and not give this privilege to the press.

  • FREEDOM

    It is my understanding that the Constitution was constructed and agreed upon by representatives of the States to prevent the descent of our government into autocracy or oligarchy. The Constitution establishes rules of governance and each state pledged to obey that agreement. The Constitution is the supreme law of the United States of America.

    The law is being violated. The governing agreement pledged between the
    States has been broken. In order for a nation to be ruled by law, the law must be interpreted by honest people and obeyed by all participants. The Constitution is the framework the States put in place so the United States could act as one internationally, defend the entire country from hurt or invasion, promote individual freedom and provide a venue for states to work out grievances among themselves. The Constitution is the law of the land. It specifically describes the authority of Congress, the President and the Supreme Court. When this law is broken, there must be action to repair it. The power and authority of the Federal Government derives from the States, not the other way around.

    As an agreement between the States, maintaining the integrity of the Constitution is the responsibility of the States. It is said that the Constitution must be flexible to reflect the needs of citizens. The machinery for changing the meaning of the Constitution is embedded in the document. Any change in the meaning of the Constitution must be agreed upon by the States; not any other branch of government.

    The President of the United States is absolutely ignoring the Constitution of the United States of America. He is stealing power from the Congress, the Supreme Court and the States that make up the United States. He is inventing power that makes a mockery of
    that office. He has stated that he believes the Constitution is invalid and daily acts to reinforce this belief. He stands convicted by his own words and actions.

    The Congress of the United States is absolutely ignoring the Constitution of the United States of America. They have assumed power and authority that are expressly forbidden to them in the Constitution. They do not recognize the supreme law of the land. The Congress passes laws with impunity that are clearly in contravention of the Constitution. Those who perpetrate this omission are criminal.

    The Supreme Court of the United States has
    the task of judging that a law or legal decision is compatible with the
    Constitution of the United States. They are not performing their avowed duties.
    They ignore the stated meaning and demean the intent of the Constitution
    of the United States of America. In some cases they preempt the Congress and the President by manufacturing legislation from the bench. They deliberately
    circumvent Constitution. This is massive corruption and dishonesty. It is
    time the Supreme Court be held accountable for their dishonest and politically
    motivated decisions. It is time for the States to dismiss justices whom are deemed to be derelict in their duty.

    All of the above individuals and every elected and appointed person in the United
    States swear a Holy Oath before God to uphold and defend the Constitution
    against ALL enemies. Those who do not honor their sworn duty have abdicated the right to their position.

    I believe there is a simple solution to our deficit problems. In the process, we also help salvage our badly tattered Republic: Honor the legal basis and the rules
    agreed upon by the States to form our Constitution.

    Ask every State to form a commission, made up of citizens from many walks of life.
    They are to produce a consensus upon the intent and purpose of the
    Constitution of the United States. The purpose of this commission will be to reinforce the importance of and insist upon honorable treatment of the Constitution by the Federal Government. Study all laws enacted by the Congress and executive
    orders, rules and fiats issued by the President to discover any discrepancy
    between those laws and the clear meaning of the Constitution as written, ignoring
    subsequent rulings of the Supreme Court as precedent. Examining these laws and regulations should be started from the day the commission convenes, working backward in legislative time. A staff of non-attorney researchers will be necessary to avoid meaningless precedence
    issues and obfuscating the real meaning of the Constitution.

    From the results of these commissions,
    representatives from the States, usually including the chairman of each
    commission, should meet in Kansas for a Constitutional Convention. This convention will not have the intent to change the Constitution, but to
    define it and insist (uphold and defend) on its preeminence in law.

    1. Executive Orders and fiats issued by the President
    that are not authorized by the Constitution will be rescinded. Personnel in positions not authorized by the Constitution will be terminated from these positions without severance
    benefits. All expenditure resulting from unconstitutional actions by the President and his associates will cease to be funded.

    2. Laws found and recognized by the states to be inconsistent with the Constitution should be struck down by the States. Personnel affected by unconstitutional legislation will be terminated from these positions without severance benefits. All expenditure resulting from unconstitutional laws will be terminated.

    3. The Supreme Court will be held responsible if they approve unconstitutional laws, regulations and fiats. Justices and their staff who are found derelict in their duty will be terminated from the Supreme Court without severance benefits.

    4. Any bureaucratic offices and agencies not authorized in strict accordance with the Constitution, it will be disestablished. All expenditure for these unconstitutional organizations will cease to be funded. Personnel working in an unconstitutional bureaucracy will be terminated from their positions without severance benefits.

    5. All elected federal officers’ salary and benefits; including transportation, retirement, as well as the size and expenditure for their staff will be approved by the governor and legislature of the state from which they are elected and will be funded by that state. Those who represent the states will work directly for the state, not the Congress or political party.

    6. No elected representative will be exempt from laws or ethics that are expected to be obeyed by the general population.

    7. No elected representative will be given special retirement, travel or special prerogatives not available to the general population.

    8. All Presidential expenditures, including salary, the size and expense of staff and expenditures for entertaining and travel will be approved in advance by the U. S. Congress.

    9. Salary, staff and office expenses and travel by members of the Supreme Court of the U.S. will be set, monitored and controlled by the House of Representatives.

    10. Redistribution of wealth and benevolent giving, including both foreign and domestic benevolence (so-called foreign aid and welfare) not authorized by the Constitution will be terminated at the Federal level and become the burden of the states as the states deem them necessary and proper in the law.

    During this Constitutional Convention by the states, elected Federal representatives and federal personnel will be allowed to observe, but not participate (lobby) in States business.

    Our governmental system failed because the States didn’t enforce their own agreements.
    They still have the power to correct past incursions by the Federal government. If they do not act, our government will descend into autocracy or oligarchy. Our Constitutional Republic will cease to exist. Doing what is right for the country will be a tough uphill slog, but not nearly as tough as the hurdles faced by the people who wrote the original document. Over the last 90 years the three branches of the Federal Government have
    colluded to usurp power and authority from the states. Sidestepping constitutional limitations has turned into a stately dance involving all three branches. It is time for the States to reaffirm that the Federal Government derives is existence from the People.

      FREEDOM, A very excellent post, indeed, but I do have a problem with your second paragraph about the law must be interpreted by honest people and obeyed by all participants. When a supreme power as the Supreme Courts even with honest judges go and commit their interpretation to any law, what they are doing is stating an understanding according to individual belief, their belief as to what the law means. There should be no interpretation, just do what the law states. If there is some confusion about what the law means rewrite and have another vote before it becomes law in the first place. Am I wrong?

Take your weapons and ammo and hide them away until we are ready and plan an attack on this DICTATOR, he has lost his mind and is not fit for leadership. We need to strip him of power either by vote or by force. He is a traitor to our country and should be shot for TREASON, the very second he tries to override our CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. So if they come for your weapons just say they were stolen by some local gangs that have been robbing and stealing and let them try to find them, if all else fails give them YOUR AMMO FIRST and not bow down without a fight.

    Lets cut to the chase hear. The Constitution is the law of the land. It is the only thing that keeps you and me free. Anyone who wants to tamper with or do away with the Constitution does not have your or my best interest at hart they only want to do away with the Constitution because it stand in their way of total domination. To many Americans it seems have absolutely now idea what would happen to this great United States of America and to them without the protection of the Constitution. I have been in parts of the world where people did not have the protection of a Constitution such as ours and their government simply murdered them. If they were to complain that they did not have food they were eliminated. Don’t say that it could not happen here; remember “absolute power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”. The Founding Fathers knew exactly what they were doing when they put our Constitution together. They were also willing do dir for their beliefs.

    It is hard for me to believe that our beloved country is filled with so many individuals who want to ruin it. They lie and scheme to tear down the best government ever devised by man, and have elected a man as President who is probably the worst enemy to our way of life we have ever encountered. The President claims a college background that cannot be proven. There is some doubt that he is even a citizen, for he attended school in California as a foreign student. Where are the J. Edgar Hoovers when we really need them? We can only hope that our military and law enforcement personnel will stand by the truly loyal and patriotic citizens of the country when the fighting begins.

    If the Constitution is done away with, the United States will still
    be the government in Washington because the District of Columbia is not a
    state. The Constitution only applies in the several states. The United
    states government would still have jurisdiction in the District of
    Columbia, and the possessions like Guam, and the Virgin Islands, and over it's citizens, wherever they may be.

    The only power that the US government would lose would be the 17 enumerated
    powers of Article 1, section 8, of the Constitution. It would still
    retain sovereignty in it's territories, enclaves, and possessions.
    That's what the traitors in congress want.

    The reason that they want it is that everyone of us has become citizens of Washington, D.C. or one of it's territories, giving congress total sovereignty over we US citizens.

    Read the article at this link, and work to understand it. It's not easy.

    The war on the constitution has been a century in the making. I don't remember the actual phrase but if you control the minds of the children you will over throw a country. We can only stop this reclaiming the minds of the next generation who have been raised to think the govt is good and that freedom and liberty is to be sacrificed for the greater good.

    Think of how many people think our rights come from the constitution! If we want things to change we need to do it one mind at a time. Here's my favorite example of mis-education. We are taught the Supreme Court has the power to declare laws unconstitutional. However, Article III in the Constitution gives the judiciary no such power!

    The legion of idiots which comprise our government today seem to forget that the very source of the authority they have to govern was specifically granted to them (by The People) through the very Constitution they so often try to ignore or circumvent.

    IF, they don't want to follows the Constitution; then it logically follows that they must give up any notion that they have power to govern (granted by that same Constitution). SO, either follow the Constitution to the letter or get the hell out . It really is as simple as that.

    - The United States of America is really 50
    sovereign states in a union and that union can dissolve just like the Soviet
    Union did. This article will give some possibilities how that break up can
    occur but there certainly could be other scenarios for this to happen.

    The major possibility is that after national
    elections socialist/liberal/progressive forces take control of the executive
    and legislative branches of government and soon thereafter the Supreme Court.
    They then would proceed to pass and uphold every sort of socialist legislation
    such as: hate speech laws, gun laws, immigration laws, socialized medicine,
    social activism and secular humanism agendas in schools and places of work,
    outlawing of home schooling, expanding social give-away programs, passing tax
    laws that burden the middle-class, implementing carbon restrictions and fees,
    increasing big brother/nanny state police powers and many other laws and
    regulations that subvert individual freedoms given under the Constitution of
    the United States for what they will claim to be the greater good of society.

    They will increase efforts to redefine the
    Constitution through activist judges. The courts will also rule that some
    rights under the Constitution are superseded by international treaties and law.

    They will muzzle politically incorrect speech
    and Christian proselytizing, subvert and brainwash our children with state
    approved text books and school programs and use national media for political
    and social propaganda. They will establish unfair tax burdens on the middle
    class in order to redistribute wealth to the lower class -- specifically to
    those on welfare programs, poor foreign nations and those people who arrived in
    this nation illegally. They will irresponsibly expand the money supply to pay
    increasing budget shortfalls, causing the dollar to lose much of its value.
    Their socialistic polices will create stagflation or hyper-inflation that will
    effectively wipe out much of the savings of ten's of millions of people.

    At some point in the not too distant future I
    surmise that a significant segment of the population will rebel against this
    government and start a secession scenario similar to what I suggest later in
    this article.

    U.S. Vulnerability - Liberals make up the majority populations
    living in large population states in big cities along both coasts. Those that
    will oppose this move to communistic fascist-like socialism will be those who
    make up the majority populations living in the conservative Christian rural
    heartland of America.

    A schism becomes likely between the two
    worldviews when it becomes obvious to the heartland people that the liberal
    coastal states will continue to control the American government and that this
    government will continue to pass and enforce despised amoral laws throughout
    the United States, regardless of state and local laws. It will especially irk
    those who believe in biblical moral standards and those who are strict
    constitutionalists. The heartland people will see national laws and regulations
    passed and enforced that will ever increase in scope to oppress the rights of
    freedom loving Bible believing people, corrupt their children, and rob them
    through unfair federal taxes and irresponsible federal monetary policy.

    Some in the heartland of America will not endure
    these things for long after they realize that the liberal controlled political,
    educational and media propaganda systems have stacked the deck so that the
    heartland people will not be able to have a major voice in the policies of this
    nation through any kind of civil democratic system.

    The likelihood that this break up of the union will happen before 2025
    A.D.

    The likelihood of some kind of breakup of the union is about an eight on a
    scale of one to ten. The likelihood that the U.S. will fragment into many new
    nation states, in my opinion, is about fifty-fifty.

    The counter-revolution from the heartland may
    start as a rebirth of the anti federal Government American Patriot Movement and
    the Libertarians that all but died out after 9/11. The leaders of the movement
    will address government circumvention of U.S. constitutional rights and it will
    gain an increasingly large following when muzzled Christian conservatives also
    identify with their message and some support the movement.

    The federal government will obviously oppose
    these constitutional militias or whatever they decide to call themselves and
    overreact against them with Homeland Security directed raids that will dwarf
    Waco. This will only help enlighten more people in the Heartland to the
    creeping government fascism that is taking control of government and it will
    spark secession movements in conservative states.

    As with prior federal agendas, they will
    threaten to withhold federal funds and use other coercion techniques against
    states that will not fully comply with locally unpopular federal laws. That
    will only alienate state representatives and legislators who will be under much
    pressure by the local people and cause them to threaten to cut off sending
    federal taxes to Washington. At some point one northern mountain state will put
    secession from the union to a emergency state referendum and it will pass. They
    will declare themselves a free state (like Kosovo) and invite international
    recognition. Other northern mountain states and some mid-western farming states
    might soon join with them and create a new union of states.

    The federal government will use every means
    possible to outlaw all this but any federal police-state like actions will only
    bring violence from both sides and bring international scrutiny. The U.S.
    government will not be able to use the military to resolve the split because
    the military will also be totally split on these issues.

    Shortly thereafter the Southwest states with
    large Latino populations will see this as their opportunity for their own nation.
    Even most of the Anglos living in the Southwest will not oppose the movement
    because most of them will be totally fed up with the way things are going.

    Indian nations will then secede.

    As the United States union fails, other regions
    of the country will see that they will need to form their own group of states.
    The east coast states could form one union and the west coast states another.
    The southern bible belt states will also start their own union.

    Some Canadian provinces could join with certain
    former U.S. states, Others provinces might stay Canadian or form their own
    independent nation. A northern Mexican state or two might join with the
    Southwest states and Mexico may have their own secessionist movement in the
    Indian regions of the South.

    For a while there will be the Balkanization of
    North America but at some point for the common good of everyone in North
    America most states will agree to join a new North American Union of states. It
    will start as a very limited form of federal government that will control
    trade, money and some limited social programs. It will not at first be
    dictating internal federal polices to the individual states.

    Much of the world will be having their own
    economic disasters and separatist movements and the weakened nation states will
    begin to look more toward regional branches of a world government. The regional
    branches of world government will allow local autonomy for nation states within
    global treaties. At least it will start out that way.

    By the way, although this would be more unlikely, the break up of the United
    States could come about from a completely different direction. The
    Conservatives could take control of America and return it to constitutional law
    and biblical moral codes. The liberal socialist states might then secede from
    the union.

    Other possibilities are that after terrorist
    attacks or a national economic crisis, the U.S. becomes a police state and a
    counter revolution develops against federalized police powers.

    Another possibility is that federal and police
    drug wars against increasingly powerful minority gangs could get out of
    control. There would be even larger incarceration of minorities then there is
    now with increased police powers taking away constitutional rights of even
    innocent people, resulting in a predictable backlash.

    The real point is not exactly how this breakup
    might happen. The point is that America is becoming increasing polarized
    between liberals and conservatives, religious and irreligious, law abiders and
    criminals, police and citizens, educators and parents, tax payers and
    deadbeats, control freaks and freedom lovers, perverts and non perverts etc. If
    this polarization of America continues to increase we will either have a union
    break up or we will soon be living under martial law.

    It is even likely that some states, counties and
    cities will break up into smaller local governments because the existing
    government will no longer reflect the people within.

  • Bill Tyner

    Let's give up on Socialism which was tried during the "great" depression when an estimated 2 million became communists. The "Reds" tried very hard back then and made huge inroads in American politics. They slowly lost true believers though many stayed in the universities and in politics. They began to push hard again in the 60's, filling up the universities with "free thinkers". Drugs and leftist professors like Timothy Leary bent the will of the hippy generation soon to become the anti-war communist/black panther coalition.

    We need to have a national discussion about Progressive/Socialism vs Constitutional/Capitalism. Should we have a Socialist Strong Man who abuses all aspects of the Constitution (much like Napolean Pig in "Animal Farm") or a President who must work with the Senate, the House and the Court with representative government - a Republic as the framers of the Constitution cemented with their signatures.

    As always though, the Constitution faces heavy pressure from the government dependent folk.

    We ask, "why are they getting away with this?" Because those of us that believe in our Constitution and are God-given rights are (for the most part) law-abiding people. There is no doubt in my mind that if the OTHER side began the melee, that we would all be standing together with those of us that believe in fighting for our freedom. Problem, we are NOT the same mentality as the Occupy Wall Street group, and we are timid to START the confrontation.

IS HE KIDDING ! IS HE THAT MUCH OUT OF TOUCH WITH WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE LAST FEW YEARS! Maybe it's just possible that all of these side-steps around our constitution has landed us in this mess. I guess he fells that it is all right that we have a twice elected president that has failed to produce the necessary documents needed to even be on the ballot. In my opinion we need to get back to these basics rules of government and punish those who feel that they are above the law and can ignore them just because of their social status or wealth.

    We have two Communists mindsets in America one that believes that Communism will bring about a utopian world which is what Ignorant Liberals believe although history has proven over and over just how evil ans sick this form of government is (a Satanic Lie) another knows exactly what Communism/Marxism will do to a nation as did this group of people who came to America from The Franklin School in Frankfurt Germany in the eary 1940s they came here with the express purpose to destroy America since military might couldn't do the job there had to be another way, their words "We will make her Stink" These people who most if not all are dead but they trained more than enough to carry-on their evil plan one of their greatest coup was when Jimmy Marxist Carter gave us the Department of Education they now had what the Communists dreamed of Control of our Youth. Why we as a nation don't understand this is a mystery to me.

    • Kent2012

      Apolloone it requires a rather comprehensive study of history to have a grasp of the power that events, seemingly unrelated or unconnected to us at this precise moment, can inject into current events. My offhand guess is that one such event that preceded your example would be the Treaty of Versailles. A recommended read "Paris 1919". What happened, and did not happen, during that time caused repercussions around the world that are still echoing today. WWII Vietnam Gulf War I, and Iraq, and most of the sustained hostilities in the middle east. WWII compounded the errors and through it all the two russian revolutions gave us the road map of communist cruelty and terrorism around the world

  • Alexander Davidson

    Quote: "acted illegally under existing law and thought it was fine to own slaves" End-quote. Those southerners were actually breaching the Constitution in the first place, making one group of people alienated from the rest, along with laws restricting almost every part of life to them including reproduction rights. Obama is the new Hitler, if reports are all correct... except that Hitler was born a German in Austria, whereas Obama has only 1 tie to America through his mother, but born in Kenya according to his Grandma ((before the kerfuffle and (CIA?) prodding to change her story)) - and his Birth Certificate has been proven false, and has had so many additions (overlays) and removals of details, and made up of at least 4 genuine Birth Certificates, but does not run in sequential numerical order to the BIRTHS registry, placing it's contents all over the place from different numbers of "lost" registrations. So why are the Senators supporting what is under the law an "alien" in the highest seat of the land? - This is extremely dangerous to any country... almost like letting a Japanese born Jap-American in the top job before The Pacific War broke out during WW2! If they had, bet your last dollar you would all be writing this in Japanese now! (unless it was seditious, and your head would be separated from your body.)... The way I see it, that unless EVERY AMERICAN protests outside the offices of EVERY elected government (all levels) representative, and act FAST... you will be just as invalid as double-amputees! - If the elected ones refuse to challenge Obama and oust him based on ineligibility, then the elected ones ALSO must be arrested, held, and tried for treason... even if it IS a people's court! (A consideration that must be applied when and if the Judges are in the fraud's pockets) ... remember, that IF you remove all politicians, and ensure that the previous ones never can be re-elected, there will be only 1 left if you can get to him - B.O. the smelly one! It is a sad day for all Americans - that you even ALLOW such an alien to rule you, and murder your children, and allow sexual deviates to change laws! - It becomes a sick stigma - that it was partly the churches fault for not bucking the "Freedom of Speech" part that was removed from them in exchange for money.

  • Unique-Lies

    If the US Constitution is done away with, the State Constitutions would have to be destroyed also because the State Constitutions must be in harmony with the US Constitution.

    The United States Supreme Court Decisions would have to be changed as well, because the Supreme Courts have already interpreted the US Constitution into the Laws of the Land, meaning all laws in our country have already been determined according to the US Constitution.

    The only way to remove the US Constitution would be to destroy every written law in America. Every law must comply with the US Constitution, so therefore, the laws would still protect the people with their same inalienable rights endowed from their creator.

    The Constitution does not give anyone any rights. The 14th amendment citizens were given CIVIL RIGHTS, but the central government gave them those rights and privileges, not the Constitution.

    The Constitutions only secures your rights (if you know what your rights are) by telling the governments they can not interfere with the Life, Liberty and pursuit of happiness of the people.

    "Ignorance of the law is no excuse", was added to the law to WARN Government Employees, Government Officers and Government Officials that if they violate peoples rights, they can be prosecuted and fined.

    "ALL PERSONS ARE PRESUMED TO KNOW THE LAW. IF ANY PERSON ACTS UNDER ANY UNCONSTITUTIONAL STATUTE, HE DOES SO AT HIS OWN PERIL. HE MUST TAKE THE CONSEQUENCES." 16 Am Jur 177, 178

    The Supreme Court emphasized that a reasonably competent public official should know the law governing his conduct and ruled that victims can hold almost all public administrators personally liable for conduct that violates clearly established ... “constitutional rights of which a reasonable person would have known". Harlow v. Fitzgerald, 457 U.S. 800 at 818 (1982).

  • Warren

    It is considered more likely that the USA would fall from within, vs from the threats from outside. With this in mind, it is obvious that "learned" men and I use the term learned loosely. These men are pretending to be superior to all others and must have evil motives to push for the destruction of the only man made document with God given rights. The Constitution has remained rock stable for 225 years vs the shabby record of Europe and the even worse record of Communism and Fascism. This Professor hates this nation so bad, he should leave. I urge him to leave now, before he realizes his liberty given to him as a natural right from God. Please leave, really, please leave us common sense people in peace.

    FREEDOM is the MOST PRECIOUS thing than anything else of human being, but it is also the thing that bestrewn everywhere carelessly and the people who have it don't pay attention to keep or consider it as important as it is. Hence, FREEDOM is easy to steal gradually by ones who attempt to grasp power and to hold it for a long time. People don't think that when freedom lost it is not easy to take it back. It is extremely difficult because when people lost it they are in the position of a cotter in it's slot - no way to budge

    If there's any attempt by this president or his Czars to do away with our Constitution as suggested by the moron professor of constitutional law at Georgetown University, Louis Michael Seidman, then the person occupying the presidential office must be impeached.

All alumni from Georgetown should withdraw all current and future contributions and donations until this left wing socialist is fired.

It started in earnest and in haste with our current President but it really began with Woodrow Wilson in slow motion back in 1913 The progressives/Socialists see us at the tipping point so they are making their moves to finally rid our government of the constraints of the constitution. If successful we the people will soon be slaves or surfs to what will become an all powerful crony sham of a government. They must disarm us first!

Next thing you know it, you're leaving in a Totalitarian State where the Government is telling you what to do and what to say. It's obvious that some people are endorsing the move to remove the constraints on Government to literally run ram-shock over the People of this Country.

    Marxism is like the plague. It spreads its disease over a wide area infesting freedoms and liberties. President obama is following along in the Hugo Chavez playbook, checking off each step. One of the last steps required is "boots marching in the streets." A person looking outside their window will see boot prints, red with the blood of citizens. Marxism doen't come easy. It is done by force. Rights? There are none. Freedoms, hardly. Bill of Rights? Forget about it! Constitution? Eliminated.
    It is not a pretty picture. But "history repeats itself." America is not exempt from reality. Thomas Jefferson wrote that a Democratic Republic could only last about 400 years. Gee, we didn't even get close to that idea!
    Want to see into the future? Just study up on what happended to Venezeula under the Hugo Chavez regime.
    People...this doesn't end well.

  • ACHILLESLIVES!

    Whattya expect from a zionist rat? They are the authors of collectivism in all it's forms-communism, socialism, progressivism, bolshevism-(more direct talmudism than Marxist doctrine suggests) and use it as a false shield to mask their true goal-planet zion as prescribed in the gemara-(Talmud). Their own religious doctrine necessitates that they and they alone control this planet's wealth, resources and all life on it before the jewish god-(only for jews) 'yahweh' will return to Earth and 'his people'. This has been their aim, drive, and goal for centuries, and only in bringing this truth into the light will the people of Earth ever know true freedom and prosperity unimpeded by the "doctor Smith's" of our planet's-"Lost in space". It's the talmudic zionists behind the U.N.'s collectivism and recent aggresive nature in terms of not recognizing the sovereign authority of nations or their people more pointedly. The zionists have always been tearing down everyone's culture's and natural nationalistic inclinations that the jews in occupied Palestine show more than any other nations people these days. when they recently deported several thousand Sudanese from israthole', they rounded them up in camps, and then deported them on the basis that allowing them to stay in isrtahole would" change the makeup of israel" was the official line. what would the jews in the usurped American media say if several white congressmen stated they wanted to send the blacks back to Africa for the same reason?? What would make that LESS valid than the jews claim? NOTHING. This is what weakness will get a nations people. Too caring is called 'SUCKER' in the zionists arena, and they seek to make all succumb to such inaccurate accusations. This jackal gypsy dog 'seidman' dropped out of the stench-end of some gypsy dog in heat should be beaten into a coma and dropped in Harlem naked with racial epithets written all over it for laughs. Let's see the jews come and tear down the constitution. It'll make Bergen-Belsen look like a barndance.

    Well then since the media thinks this way .You will see more of this.I got an idea since the media ruins people lifes. They to have decided it is alright to put the name of the killers that did these shootings ,so they to give the message to a sick person.If you shoot a lot of people and killed them.You to can get weapons and harm people.So does that mean that since the media thinks we should just forget about Constiution and have there own way ,into what they want for this coutry.I sayed first thing should go is the freedom of press .Since they do harm to this country,like encouraging more sick people to get there 15 minutes of fame.By putting there faces on Tv. Then lets have that no more freedom of press.I mean if they think that the right to bar arms is in there minds outdated.Then I don't think that the founding fathers wanted the media to be the way the are now.As well as being nothing more then goverment mouth pieces .So I think we should not have anymore freedom of press. I like that

    The New York Times; a bunch of white propertied men who though still alive know nothing of America's current situation. To start with what does skin color have to do with anything unless of course you are a racist. The New York Times certainly fits that label.

    America was founded as a Republic with an elected "peoples House of Representatives". The idea was 50.1% of the people could never oppress 49.9% of the people. This is precisely what the Democrats seek to do.

    Further; our leaders were never to be rulers from on high exempt from whimsical laws applicable only to a "subject" class and then parsed up by every imaginable distinction.

    The American Constitution was meant to be understood by the people. Short and to the point it is as pertinent today as it was then. Any references for example to the King of England translate to any king or would be monarch such as we have today. And the amendment process is the means by which the American Constitution is as modern and as great a document today as at it's birth.

    Impeach them all (as if that would work) starting with the rats who let him in without vetting, then allow him to remain 'in office' illegally and hand him everything he asks for on a silver platter. All these rats are milking our country to death, enriching our enemies and plan our destruction from the top down. How many of you voted for those two scumbags Gary Johnson and Paul who split our Republican vote?! How many of you didn't even vote while all scumbags did? We had a chance to save our country and trashed it. He may have well been the best president in modern history; Ronald Reagan didn't find a way to stop the Mexican hemorrhage that continues unimpeded even today. He was a wise man but Romney is wiser and we stuffed him in the trash so we are reaping what we sow. The electoral committee has a chance to do the right thing by voiding obama's presidency but why didn't they do it last time? I understund one member has raised the question of his legality. I ask you, WHAT QUESTION?! We all know he's illegal! Good 'ole Rev Wright may have had it right after all when he said "God damn America", and is precisely what we are doing. Our former Republican party has gone to hell and independents are scattered all across the land.

    How many of us are willing to continue to tolerate the crap coming out of the mouths of so-called celebrities praising obama and damning real Americans?! How many of you remember the joke about the praying man on a rooftop in a flood who refused a rowboat, helicopter etc, then drowned, and upon reaching Heaven asked God "why didn't you save me" to which God responded..."What'ya mean, I sent you a rowboat, helicopter etc..."

    I think He sent us Mitt and we drowned him. He was even reluctant to take on the huge job of fixing countless failed and only partially successful administrations when we needed an overhaul and return to the America our forefathers envisioned.

    This stupid muslim we bought even corrupted the supreme court now. What's next? He's planning and working on dismantling our entire country and the country is burning while we fiddle. No process of our existing government as it stands is going to stand up for us, the people...although it's their job!

    We are already enslaved in a monetary system so burdened by debt It will take more than a generation to resolve it. If it can be done at all under the present codes and civil laws that are unconstitutional and under the management of the Federal Reserve board and its agenda.

    We are also being dictated to, First by removing sweeteners from the market and drugs. By telling us we cannot have lead in gasoline, That we can not have a car with out emissions controls standards( A Catalytic converter, This inventor made a fortune by government legal and legislative dictation) That the automotive and oil business must be regulated at a cost people are unaware of and that it is not optional.
    By telling us what kind of toilet we can own, By what kind of television and video communications we must all use. That not all are for public use. By what kind of lighting we can purchase and use in our homes. By what kind of drivers licenses can be used. Just to name a few. All this is unconstitutional According to the United States Constitution of America. The Law of The Land. The United States constitution guarantees liberty and freedom of choice, the right to chose, without government intervention. The right to purchase in the commerce laws. That Government has no authority in acting as a guardian or brother or provider ever.

    The congress not the debt and the corrupt tax codes and system has gone over the cliff a long time ago. It is a matter of time before they do them selves in and drag the rest of the nation and we all go over the cliff with them completely. Because they are acting for them selves only.

There oath is to themselves in the rational that they are smarter and more capable in all areas of decision making, That they know what is best for the rest and this means all good Citizens in The United States of America. Are incapable of thinking without congress making laws about the process. That there positions are almost god like and must be supported by all means well after they have left office.

    Fire them all, come election time, Legally remove them from office, sue them for bad legislation hold them accountable individually even after they have left office, for legislation that is unconstitutional, recall them. Throw them out of office by any legal means.

    Yes morality is a issue, but the majority are not immoral. Most would like immorality to just go away. It is the American communist that is using the moral issues of the law to undermine the real kingdom of the American society and culture "the Family unite" Through the psychology of political correctness and that some how. How we are made is improper. That there is nothing wrong with swimming in the wastes of the human body and its discarded filth. For sexual satisfaction. Homosexuality is about filth not just immoral and improper conduct.

    Make sure all are aware that Communism has never died that this monster of a octopus thrives more than ever today. Do not except people saying that those who fear and hate communism are the problem and are mentally unstable. It is the other way around. Communism is alive and well its tentacles now reach deep into every aspect of American society and life It has many faces like the disease syphilis. It is insidious and ultimately like syphilis it destroys its host, driving it mad and is transmitted the same way, through seduction. Communism is a lie. It is the illusionary laws of Lucifer, it is destined to burn on the ash heap of failed philosophies in history. By God Almighty.

    It will be a cold day in hell when that happens (and the end of America) I can't think of anyone in dc that comes close to the wisdom and courage of our Founding Fathers as they developed the constitution and I trust them far more than any politician or university prof. The problem with today's federal government isn't the constitution, it's the idiots that are trying to run it.

    The criminal occupying the White House is only there through voter FRAUD...when you have an average of 115% votoer turnout in all the swing states that is prima facie evidence of the crime! Moreover, the guy in the White House is not qualified under the US Constitution to be President because of his own admission of disqualification that his father was from Kenya. The US Constitution states that those applying for the job to be President must be a "Natural Born Citizen"!!! This does not mean that you have to be born in the USA or that the applicant is a US citizen by being born in the USA, but it mean that the applicant's parents (Both Parents) must be US citizens to have their son or daughter be a legal applicant to be President of the USA!

    Obama is here only to destroy the USA, its tradition, its history, its morals and beliefs! He and his Marxist friends have taken over many positions in the US Government and the Press and most if not all of our Universities and Law Schools are headed and staffed by Marxist/Communist professors (All by Design).

    America's only hope is if true Americans begin to take notice and stand up to their Treason!

    “A democracy cannot exist as
    a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers
    it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority
    always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the
    democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be
    followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy." --French author, Alexis de Tocqueville, 1840
