The Left's Mentality on the Constitution  

Friday, September 02, 2005

It is really kinda weird how the liberals love to twist the Constitution about and add and delete things from it at their whim, using judicial activist groups like the ACLU and to get what they want, since it won't ever happen through the legal legislative manner.

"Living document"? MY ASS! You can't just cut and paste the Constitution into the document you want it to be. It just doesn't work that way. The ENTIRE purpose of the Constitution is to implement the plan set forth by the Founding Fathers. If the Founders wanted the Constitution to be a "living document", they would have made the process of amendment easy. It's not, and because it's not, the Left cannot enact the laws and programs they want without judicial activism.

If we are to believe the ACLU, an extreme organization that is trying to destroy the Constitution, the federalist structure it guarantees, and the rights that derive from God through that federalist structure, the following are included in the Constitution:

An "inseperable wall between church and state",

Freedom from religion, including a ban on voluntary prayer in public and/or any public display of religion,

Freedom to exploit children via child pornography,

Freedom to murder children via abortion.

Of course, all of these "rights" are completely made up. None of them appear in the Constitution or any subsequent amendments. Even if there were such a "wall", how would an expression of religion violate that concept? Laws are not meant to suppress expressions of beliefs or opinions, but to suppress ACTIONS. The ACLU is therefore WRONG to suppress any attempt by any entity to express a view acknowledging religious teachings. They are also wrong to defend organizations such as NAMBLA, who encourage others to exploit young boys by involving them in child pornography.

The discussion regarding abortion has already taken place on this blog. Roe v. Wade is unconstitutional, for the reasons cited when I posted about it. Why are the liberals so dead set against the repeal of Roe v. Wade? They love to tell you that it would mean abortions would be banned nationwide, and the only way to get an abortion (read that the only way to kill a child) would be to break the law, and that its repeal would violate the constitutional right to privacy. Nothing is further from the truth.

First of all, let's set the record straight on the "constitutional right to privacy". It doesn't exist, plain and simple. You can read the Constitution and its amendments a thousand times, and you won't find it. It simply ISN'T THERE. The real reason the Left wants Roe v. Wade intact is simple. Its repeal would put the power to decide the fate of abortion into the hands of the states and the people. We can't have that, now, can we?

This is only the tip of the iceberg. Liberals not only like to create rights out of the air for their own convenience, but they also work diligently to deny Americans the God-given rights that the Constitution guarantees:

The Left's outrage at and subsequent attempt to suppress public prayer, the actions of the Minuteman Project, and political bloggers (McCain-Feingold) are violations of the First Amendment.

All gun-control laws are violations of the Second Amendment.

The recent Supreme Court decision seizing private property in order to award it to another private entity (Kelo v. New London) is a violation of the Fourth Amendment.

Federal socialist programs, such as the "New Deal" and the "Great Society" and all of their by-products, such as welfare and Socialist Security, are violations of the Tenth Amendment.

This list could go on and on and on, but anyone who reads the Constitution and the Bill of Rights (subsequent amendments here) can see that it doesn't take a lawyer or any long boring courses in "civics" to understand. These words were written for everyday people.

Why can't our liberal friends understand this? I believe that they can and do understand, but act in the manner that they do because ackowledging the Constitution and its words would put an abrupt end to what they stand for: centralized government in control of everything in your life, including whether you live or die. They want the federal government to force the states and the people of those states to live under one supreme authority - THEIRS. This is the real reason they want religion out of American discourse. With God out of the way, they can assert THEMSELVES as the supreme power that governs our lives. Take guns away from law-abiding citizens, and you empower them to create even more manner of oppressive laws, with there then being no means at all for these people to defend themselves against liberal oppression.

Americans are endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights, and are guaranteed these rights by the Constitution. This is the philosophy that governs our free nation. The people themselves wield the most power, with the states a little weaker, and the federal government weakest of all. That is a concept known as FEDERALISM, and it is the driving force in all those who cherish their freedom. These freedoms have been eroded over the last hundred years, and it's time to take them back, liberals be damned.
