Video: Sen. Jim DeMint gets it…the Constitution does limit Congress

Well at least one of our elected representatives in Washington understands that our Constitution which was carefully crafted by our Founders is designed to restrain the government.  If the men and women we have elected to office to safe guard it would actually follow through with their oath ObamaCare would have failed.  The financial reform law would never have been considered because it’s clearly unconstitutional.  Where in the Constitution does it grant the federal government the authority to seize private property?  Because under the new financial reform law it does just that by granting some unelected administrator the power to take over privately owned companies if they make the case that they are a threat to the economic stability of the nation.  This doesn’t sound or feel like the America I grew up in.  This is absolutely outrageous!

Below Senator DeMint lectures his colleagues about constitutional authority.

We have tried big government and it has failed time and again.  Maybe it is time to try something new and go back to the original charter that set our great nation on its journey…our Constitution.  Now that would be radical.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

    It is good to know that there are some in Washington who understand what the constitution is all about, I wish there were more like Jim DeMint, maybe there will be after November.

    I hope so Steve. We're going to need them to turn this thing around. Thanks for the comments

    There are still a handful in Washington that understand. I hope that after November there will be many.

    That's refreshing! I can already see the next GOP slogan – NO WE CAN'T! I resonates with me anyway.

    This is encouraging. Now if only the GOP would put these words into action.

    Thats pretty good Right. NO WE CAN'T. I like it!

    I agree Matt. We need action to rein in the expansion of government. I fear the Republicans will fall back into the big government mindset.
