3 Things I Would Change In The Constitution

TheWriteAmerica - 3 Things I Would Change About The Constitution

How would the architects of the Constitution deal with today’s Progressive politicians and activist Judges?

I have great love and respect for the Founding Fathers and for the Constitution they wrote. It is the greatest man-made document ever produced, it created the finest government system ever devised, and it formed the greatest nation in history.

But it was not without a few kinks. Or in the case of the 3/5ths Compromise, one big, sad gap. We all wish via our hindsight that they had instead abolished slavery in America right then and there. But they didn’t. They were faced with trying to pull together 13 very different colonies, all of whom had different ideas of how a united government should be formed. Many of the compromises the Founders made led to a better, higher ground than any of the disparate ideas presented on their own, but this one compromise was begrudgingly made to keep the nation from falling apart before it was even united.

Have You Heard? – January 24, 2013

Today’s headlines with quick hit commentary… Have you heard…?

  • Hillary Clinton Lost Her Cool Over Benghazi: According to Clinton’s testimony on the killings of US Citizens in Benghazi, we’ve gone from blaming a video nobody saw, to the possibility that it was just a whim-killing by some guys out for a walk. Either way, she doesn’t think it matters. Memo to Hillary – You bet your dragon-breath it matters! Our men were killed and the who and why it happened is central to the entire incident!
  • Kicking The Debt Can Once Again: John Boehner  leads a gaggle of misdguided RINOs in giving the President his dream bill – a complete suspension of the debt ceiling for the next 3 months! I wonder how many trillions of dollars we don’t have that Obama will spend in that short period of time… Click the title link to see which Republicans had the Conservative Cojones to vote “no.” Those are the ones who should get your support come 2014.
  • The Dems Fire Off Another Round: Democrats on Capitol Hill are set to unleash their “assault weapons” ban… also known as “this gun looks mean enough to fire off a shot all by itself – no murderous son-of-a-bitch required!” It’s sad, but before the public school system went to hell, I learned all the way back in Kindergarten that objects are neutral, and only a person can do something good or evil.
