The Constitution of the United States – read it lately? If so, you would realize that our “leaders” seem to be using it for toilet paper. This is a lot bigger than the Government shutdown, the budget crisis or Obamacare.
The document that makes America the land of the free – our Constitution – is no longer a functioning document of law. It has been replaced by a legal hodgepodge that is arbitrarily applied with scant regard for constitutionality or any coherent code of principles – that is not the rule of law.
This article is the first of a 7 part series that that links to Michael Ventura’s well thought out columns in the Austin Chronicle, starting with a focus on why the first 2 articles in the Bill of Rights are history.
Sorry, but it is idiotic to speak and think about American politics as though our system is what it was 20 years ago. Worse than idiotic – delusional.
So, what do we do about it?
