I do not advocate "kicking the Constitution to the curb", but it is both utopian and naive to make appeals such as "strict construction of the Constitution" or "return to the Founders' intent." Before taking exception to that sentence, I would ask any poster whether they know of the warnings of the Constitutional Convention delegate Judge Yates, who argued against ratification as Brutus (see, inter alia, "Why the Words of the Constitution Matter" http://theburningplatform.com/economy/why-the-wor... and whether they are aware of the extent to which every single Founder, once in office, found good reason to expand Federal power at the expense of State and local powers. Madison, in particular; before appealing to "Founders' intent", be educated by his many letters 1821-1836 in which he defended all the Federal expansions that occurred from 1789 on.
This writer, this site, and the entire effort by Brietbart deserve every journalistic and civic award that exist. Truth is a bitch to the idolaters, making their well-laid plans for tyranny just a little less competent.
Your points about the MSM focusing on "what bait what used" instead of "what fish was caught" show good insight and a talent for writing. Fun metaphor!
Keep it up, we need each other to keep at it, our country needs us.
This cycle is an opportunity like none we have seen in our lifetimes, nor are likely to see again. 2012 will be too late if 2010 doesn't halt the slide into International Socialism. The iNazi brownshirts will be emboldened and empowered - do not dismiss Oblama's call for a CIVILIAN army.
The Fifty website posted above is one way to focus our anger and our power. A national way is https://goooh.com/ and the process works. the website is lame, amateur like most of us, but the idea is SOUND. Go to a mock Selection session, then make up your mind. We have got to FOCUS.
I saw that presentation of the Medal of Freedom and was so proud of him, and I agree with the earlier poster who liked the Cuba Gooding Jr. movie about him.
