The left’s disdain for our constitution runneth over…

How many of you remember the below clip from the Star Wars movie?  A young Anakin Skywalker is sitting in a field with his love Padme talking about how he would change or fundamentally transform the Republic so that it’s more responsive to the needs of the people.  Padme, a champion of the Republic quickly realizes what he’s proposing.

For those who love liberty what Anakin is proposing is the antithesis of liberty.  It’s a dictatorship.  Why did he propose such a thing?  He believed the system didn’t work anymore and something needed to change to get things done.  If you’re a Star Wars fan and have seen the movies you know how this line of thinking worked out for the fictional Republic.  The Republic was eventually transformed into the Galactic Empire ruled by someone wise; the Emperor.  And young Anakin fundamentally transformed into Darth Vader.  I know, that stuff only happens in the movies.  That could never happen in America.  Well yesterday news broke that Democratic Governor Bev Perdue from North Carolina called for suspending congressional elections.  When the news of this comment began to spread like wildfire, her office responded by issuing a statement that claimed the Governor was only joking.  Listen to the below clip and tell me if you think she was joking.

Do you think she was joking?  I don’t and the reason I don’t is because Bev Perdue embraces the ideology of the radical left and the radical left’s disdain for our constitution runneth over.  Her natural tendency as a leftist is to view the constitution as an obstacle to getting the things done. that need to get done.  After all the constitution limits her ability to encroach on the rights of the people of North Carolina.  And it’s this limitation that the radical left hates the most about the constitution.  As I have said many times before they believe the solutions to our problems rest with government and not the people.  They desire to regulate/manage our lives because they believe they know what it best for us.  And as long as the constitution is in place it makes it extremely difficult for the far left to advance this agenda. This is why they have turned it into a living and breathing document; it can change through interpretation.  Forget that pesky amendment process, instead they’ll find the right judge to interpret the document in a manner that best advances their agenda.  Bev Perdue is a typical leftist who in March of this last year vetoed “Protect Health Care Freedom” (HB 2) as passed by the GOP majority NC General Assembly.  This bill would have allowed North Carolinians to opt out parts of ObamaCare and purchase their own healthcare.  Again she doesn’t believe the people of her state should should be free to purchase their own healthcare.  Instead she looks towards one of the most awful pieces of legislation in modern times (ObamaCare) passed and signed into law by the Obama administration to solve her state’s coverage problems.  Par for the course.

Another example of the left’s disdain for our constitution and system can be found in former Obama director of Management and Budget Peter Orszag’s words.  He wrote, “to solve the serious problems facing our country, we need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized commissions for certain policy decisions. In other words, radical as it sounds, we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic.

So basically he wants to cut Congress out of the loop so that things can get done.  What he’s really saying is he want to cut the people out of loop.  These are two examples of how bold the left is becoming in regards to attacking our constitution and the Republic given to us by our founders.  It would be unwise for us to simply dismiss the words of these elitists because what they are proposing is the taking away our individual liberties.  These are people who hold or have held high ranking positions in our political system.  They are people in a position to effect change.  This why we must continue to be on guard against those who would legislate our liberties away for the sake of getting things done.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

    What those in power understand perfectly, and their millions of useful idiots do not, is that the founders did not make a mistake and form an inefficient government. They planned it that way on purpose!

    The federal government was never intended to be all things to all people. It was designed with certain limited powers and narrow responsibilities. All the rest, the vast domain of human action and personal sovereignty, was left to the states and the people.

    The reason government doesn’t work is because it was never intended to function as these dictatorial progressive statists envision.

      Exactly Silver. The founders knew that government at its best was still an imperfect beast. This is why they crafted the constitution to limit their powers, because they knew that a massive federal government was not in a position to be responsive to the needs of the people. The Constitution actually left most of the power with the states.

    You have described our would be dictator to a “T”. To Obama, the Constitution, the Congress and, the Supreme Court are irrelevant. He intends to push his agenda on his own until his last day in office. I have lived through what a democratically elected dictator can do here in Venezuela. The far left controlled Democrats will do the same if they win in 2012.

    A Republic? How inconvenient. Government of the people, by the people, for the people? How inconvenient. People, after all, are stoooooopid. It’s up to the Government to rule for their benefit

    It always amazes me how Democrats are so blind to their totalitarian leanings. And how the Democrats, the so-called “party of the people” are actually a group of elitists/facists who consider themselves above the people.

    These are just two examples of how the left really feels. They feel as if they are smarter than us and because they feel this way they do not feel bound by the constraints of the consitution. She was not joking when she made this comment, she was telling us how she really feels and we should not take her words lightly because if the left has the chnace they will circumvent the constitution and we have already seen that Barack Obama has no problems using government agencies to thwart the constitution.

      You know Steve they have convinced themselves that the founders were just a bunch of white slave owners. Granted they have had the help of radical left professors who polluted their minds with a slanted view of our history and government. We need to take back our institutions of learning.

    It is clear that she wasn’t joking. Progressives have worked around the Constitution and distorted the meanings of words in the Constitution for years. They twist everything for their own personal gain, not caring about the individual person and their liberty. The Constitution is working correctly, keeping Obama & Co. in check, at least as much as possible when Obama doesn’t circumvent congress. The Democrats certainly don’t mind being obstructionists when they don’t like a Republican policy but now they’re calling for compromise now that a Democrat is in the White House. They are such hypocrites.

      Indeed they are Teresa. I find it funny how when they were running the show with a super majority they still had to get a large number of their fellow Democrats to sell their souls to pass ObamaCare because deep down they knew how wrong it was for America. No matter what the SCOTUS decides this law MUST be repealed…period!
