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…
