Let's Give Up the Constitution for a Piece of Trash? Hummm?
The following transcript from the video, and the video seen below is the most benign friendly piece of trash. What makes it so vagarious is its framer Professor of Constitutional Law at Georgetown University Louis Michael Seidman seems so dangerous who would pay him any attention?
Mild mannered, even tempered and a constitutional law professor - wasn't Obama also a "senior lecturer," at the University of Chicago Law School who said he "served as a professor" and said he was "regarded as" a professor?
I'd like to take this time to make some scratch marks over his "simple idea" which I've encased in  and start with the first sentence which jumps right out of the gate on you like the orders from the leader of a flash mob set to trash a retail store in the mall:
[I've got a simple idea: Let's give up on the Constitution.]
Simple ideas are genuinely pure and straight forward, but even if he used the 6 words to shock you, the resulting vacuum of the Republic for which we stand has vanished for what we must assume is not a Republic, in which the majority mob rules and the individual loses. What would the ACLU say to that?
[I know, it sounds radical, but it's really not. Constitutional disobedience is as American as apple pie.]
Well, he has admitted to being radical here but knows its necessary to try and convince you otherwise. Our prisons are full of people who decided to break the law and here he is advocating "Constitutional disobedience" which is basically a disobedience of the Supreme Law of the Land the likes of which every office holder of the court and government have sworn to uphold.
[For example, most of our greatest Presidents -- Jefferson, Lincoln, Wilson, and both Roosevelts -- had doubts about the Constitution, and many of them disobeyed it when it got in their way.]
Perfect examples Presidents? - irregardless of any circumstances that our Constitution actually allows and provides for within the Constitution, which would make it not against the Constitution. He uses past presidents, who in his words in the bottom paragraph we would consider "ancient and outdated" as his examples of giving up on the Constitution? How is it possible to use "ancient and outdated" material to discredit "ancient and outdated material"? Shouldn't he be using modern material if he wants to discredit "ancient and outdated material"? He makes no sense.
[To be clear, I don't think we should give up on everything in the Constitution. The Constitution has many important and inspiring provisions, but we should obey these because they are important and inspiring, not because a bunch of people who are now long-dead favored them two centuries ago.]
Ohhhh so he thinks some things are good in the Constitution now and wants to save the "parts" of it that are "important and inspiring provisions", according to who? Him? I find the "natural born citizen clause for the Office of the President quite inspiring that has for over 200 years prevented a foreign leader from financing his own heirs on to the throne of the White House.
[Unfortunately, the Constitution also contains some provisions that are not so inspiring. For example, one allows a presidential candidate who is rejected by a majority of the American people to assume office. Suppose that Barack Obama really wasn't a natural-born citizen. So what?]
Holy Cow!- This guy is nuts. So the Electorate actually does their job and finds out because of a little investigation that the President Elect is only 11 years old and is the son of North Korea Kim Jong II- a son he had born in Hawaii. Anyone see a problem with that? He obviously doesn't. Or was he talking about the off chance insanity plot of the the Pres and VP actually being assassinated and our Constitution providing a back up in the chain of command who would have the authority vested in them, but who were not elected specifically for that office while we got together and voted again? He doesn't like that part.
[Constitutional obedience has a pernicious impact on our political culture. Take the recent debate about gun control. None of my friends can believe it, but I happen to be skeptical of most forms of gun control.]
Pernicious? Such a coy word - Having a harmful effect, esp. in a gradual or subtle way. What? He just said we should abandon the Constitution and he doesn't think he is being pernicious? Then he has the audacity to chum up to the Constitution's 2nd Amendment? This guys dumb and he's got balls. That's a dangerous combination. The fact his friends don't believe he's a friend to the Constitution makes me wonder if his friends are right. His opening statement did in fact say "Give Up the Constitution" rather then "Give Up parts of the Constitution" in some sensible and reasonable term as the Constitution permits, being flexible and adaptable to modern times by 2/3rds of a majority. Does he have a problem with finding 2/3rd of the Representatives and Senators that we the people, the majority, pick actually agreeing on an Amendment? What - its not fast enough for him or is it the fact that 2/3rd is just too heavy of a burden?
[I understand, though, that's not everyone's view, and I'm eager to talk with people who disagree.]
Yes, he's eager to talk to people who disagree with the 2nd Amendment because they are more his friends then the ones he was referring to can't believe he's a 2nd Amendment champion?
[But what happens when the issue gets Constitutional-ized? Then we turn the question over to lawyers, and lawyers do with it what lawyers do. So instead of talking about whether gun control makes sense in our country, we talk about what people thought of it two centuries ago.]
Now he's comparing taking a stand for the Constitution to constipation in the word "Constitutional-ized" is that even a word in the wiki dictionary? Yes it is and it means: Incorporated into a constitution. How does that happen? Oh yes, 2/3rd of the Congress agree to it. Then he reveals his true colors on gun control advocating the notion that people two centuries ago could not have possibly wanted a gun for the same reason our military does, our own militia's do, and our own hunters do? How could the line of thinking still exist of overthrowing a tyrannical government? Is tyrannical dictator king still a word he understands?
[Worse yet, talking about gun control in terms of constitutional obligation needlessly raises the temperature of political discussion. Instead of a question on policy, about which reasonable people can disagree, it becomes a test of one's commitment to our foundational document and, so, to America itself.]
More on Gun Control out of his 2nd Amendment respecting mouth here; funny I've never heard of anyone at the NRA's rally's getting riled about people giving them weapons. Its always the people wanting to take their water and bee-bee guns away that pisses them off.
[This is our country. We live in it, and we have a right to the kind of country we want. We would not allow the French or the United Nations to rule us, and neither should we allow people who died over two centuries ago and knew nothing of our country as it exists today.]
A little patriotism out of his mouth respecting America's Constitution and its flexibility for our modern age? No, he's mocking it. He also advocates that the French and United Nations should not rule over us and then throws the founder and framers overboard with them. He just doesn't understand our Constitution is flexible and provides a great way for Amendments does he? He also doesn't seem to understand that people who lived two centuries ago thought making-love was a lot better then making war. That's pretty standard I think. The proof? We're here because our Daddys got our Mama's pregnant and managed enough food to feed us. WhaWhoo!
[If we are to take back our own country, we have to start making decisions for ourselves, and stop deferring to an ancient and outdated document.]
Take back our country? From who? It sounds like this guy is advocating for England to take back the States. In which case he is aiding and abetting for something even more ancient and outdated then the Constitution. If this professor from Georgetown University, a school that was on my list to attend when I was 18, is anything like the others I'd say America has no friend there, but old King George might have, and I made the right decision not to attend. Reminds me of a few words of my new song The Promise Man - "your the new American slave, that's what this is all about."
Now if you wanna hear this pompous elitist B.S. in action just hit the play button.
