Mitch McConnell & Mitt Romney & The GOP: They Don’t Care About The CONSTITUTION

Never since 2008, have I seen so many folks running around with their little  BLUE pocket-book Constitution. And never since 2009 have I heard the mantra: FOUNDING FATHERS.  I’m sure everyone has their interpretation of what the Constitution was established for, right?

Considering the time period and the people involved in constructing the Constitution, we know that the document was not perfect, as it did not consider blacks as fully human, let alone Americans.  What about women, Native Americans and poor whites?  And thus it had to be amended, to GET WTH THE PROGRAM.

The six purposes of the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT are:

1. To form a more perfect union
2. Establish justice
3. Insure domestic tranquility
4. Provide for the common defense
5. Promote the general welfare
6. Secure the blessings of liberty

Here’s the Constitution-Preamble

Remember Schoolhouse Rock; back in the day when tv shows had purpose and educated the masses?

Mitt: DON’T KNOW NOTHIN’ ‘BOUT THE POOR! “I DON’T CARE ABOUT THE VERY RICH!” I DON’T CARE ABOUT ANYHING OR ANYBODY; JUST GET ME IN THE WHITE HOUSE!

Ramblin’ Mitch: “Just GET RID OF OBAMA CARE!” “Insuring 30 millions is NOT THE ISSUE.” I’m sure JOBS aren’t a PRIORITY either, Mitch

And this UPDATE:

Rand Paul: “THE SCOTUS DECISION DOESN’T APPLY TO ME! IMMA DO WHATEVER THE FUCK I WANT IN MY STATE, STATE RIGHTS, FOREVER!!!!!

Getting back to the Constitution; I’d recommend the next time you’re approached by anyone carrying a pocket Constitution and ranting on about our Founding Fathers, Obama’s shredding our precious Constitution, state’s rights. blah, blah, blah… ask them specifics. What parts is he shredding? What do you think the founding fathers meant by the Preamble? Do you prefer the original document with or without all those pesky lil AMENDMENTS?

Now who is working within the framework of the U.S. Constitution? And who is detroying it? Your call…

    I am Republican, prepared to vote for Obama (self.politics)

    submitted 3 days ago* by PHPGator

    I am a registered Republican, and never voted for a Democratic president. I am prepared to vote for President Obama for his reelection and here’s why. I’ll try to make it fast.

    I was with Blue Cross and Blue Shield for the last two years, with insurance coverage for myself and my entire family. I was a good customer, never late on my premiums, relatively small health problems throughout my family. They made more than they lost with us, I guarantee that.

    I have switched jobs, just before I switched jobs my wife went in for a checkup to have her thyroid looked at because she had a sensation she always had something stuck in her throat. They found cysts on her thyroid that may need to be removed.

    We were told by Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) that since we were with them for so long before that if we just got a new policy with them that we would still be covered and no “pre-existing conditions” would apply. Today, we receive a letter stating that they would cover no expenses relating to the thyroid, even though all we are really doing is just changing policies. It is ridiculous!

    I support Obama in his efforts to change this about our healthcare system. I have had insurance, I have not had a period of time over the last 10 years where I have not had insurance. I have been with BCBS for at least two years, and now they are writing down that they will not cover “any disease or disorder relating to a thyroid gland”.

    Healthcare providers should not be allowed to do this. Thanks for letting me vent!

    UPDATE: Front page! Thanks for the support! Well, we have decided that while it will be considerably more expensive, I will place her on the group plan with me at my new employer. We were going with individual insurance because it was actually a lot cheaper and we didn’t figure there would be an issue. We will now pay something like $300.00 more per month in order for her and my kids to be placed on there with me. The good news is that there will no longer be a risk of being denied coverage for “pre-existing conditions”. I still will hold my same stance that this shouldn’t be allowed and that there should be more strict circumstances where they don’t have to provide coverage (namely, when someone has a lapse of time without insurance). I think that so long as someone didn’t go without insurance, that they have been covered for a signficant period of time (6 months maybe) that the insurance company is required to provide coverage regardless of what condition the person may have. I should be able to switch who I work for it and it not cause my health insurance to go down the tubes, as it has.

    UPDATE: some people stating that I am lying, here’s the proof of the letter I was supposed to sign in order to receive coverage: http://imgur.com/ZR9Qz

      One by one; folks are waking up to the fuckery of the political system, and especially the Republican Party.

      The Dems have their shit too; and had better get their acts together.

    Excellent piece explaining that the GOP/right wing doesn’t care about the Constitution or Americans. Every person should read this!!!

    For the Romneys, Boehners, and McConnells of the world, the Constitution means what THEY want it to mean. I love how they derided PBO’s former occupation as a constitutional scholar and law professor until the Supreme Court sided with him on the ACA. They won’t give him credit, but he knows a lot more about the Constitution than any of the Constitution toting Know Nothings. I remember trying to get through to some right-wingers that the SC would strike down most parts of AZ SB 1070 because of the Supremacy Clause and because Article I delegates immigration issues as a power of Congress. I also tried to tell them that the Constitution is meant to protect everyone within the borders of the U.S. and any of its territories. None of them would listen. They wanted what they wanted when they wanted it, and what they wanted was the self-deportation of all undocumented immigrants in AZ and the U.S. Their disregard for the Constitution they wave around was on full display when the SC gutted 1070. They were still using the Constitution to rail against the decision, but their sole focus was on the 10th Amendment, which if they cared to read and comprehend it, does give the states the right to enact certain laws, but in no way does the 10th Amendment allow states to take powers away from the federal government. One of the most shameful displays of spinelessness after the 1070 decision was handed down came from Romney. Instead of responding to whether or not he agreed or disagreed with the SC’s decision, he ran straight to the 10th Amendment so that he wouldn’t offend anyone on the Right. Everything Romney has done while he’s been campaigning for the presidency indicates that were he to win, he wouldn’t feel he had to be the president of all of us. This makes him a very dangerous politician.

      Majiir, you always bring it! Thanks. You reminded me to update the post with Senator.. ( I cringe when I put these titles before these anti-Americans) Rand Paul and his reaction to the SCOTUS health care descision. Just a BLATANT disregard for LAWS that include rights for the good of the whole. Soon, dear God, soon, let these idiots die off.
