There’s a particularly sick person who always has up some sign of stupidity or another and shows off his IQ on a daily basis. Last week his little sign said, “Constitution: Words to live by”.
By gosh, what a wonderful concept. There’s nothing wrong with improving the constitution but it’s great that we all want to live by a set of principles or change the set to improve our country. Here, let me remind you what the constitution says:
The Preamble of the Constitution of the United States of America:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Now, looking at that, you will see that all of these reasons for the US government that are important (capitalized) have to do with the welfare of the people, or in other words, socialist purposes (for the benefit of society). The only one not capitalized, or in other words, the least important, is providing for the national defense.
This week our brilliant sign maker says, “Impeach Comrad Obama”. Okay, let’s just overlook his inability to spell for the moment and pretend that he really is capable of rational thought. His reference to “comrad” is obviously a concern that Obama is doing things to support society, you know, socialist things.
So this bright bulb says we should live by the words of the constitution, you know, socialist things, and impeach a president that does socialist things.
Now, I ask you, how could anyone want to live by the words of the constitution and not want to further society, not provide for the welfare of our fellow citizens?
There are lots of marvelous posts on this site explaining compartmentalized thinking. This is one of the best examples I’ve seen in a while. In other words, live by the words of the constitution but, oh, not those words.
Is anyone surprised this idiot votes Republican? Don’t they all?
