A great article in American Thinker about the likely coming abuse of the US Constitution. A few interesting excerpts:
Show where an Obama constitution will be taking off:
PREAMBLE. There ought to be a national presence in every aspect of the lives of American citizens. National power is no longer a necessary evil; it is a positive virtue.
Article I. It is the primary purpose of this national government to provide domestic tranquility by reducing risk. This risk may be physical or it may be fiscal. In order to fulfill this sacred obligation, the national government shall be deemed to have sufficient power to eliminate threats from the environment through regulation, and to eliminate threats from economic uncertainty through insurance.
This is the “living constitution” we are going to see grow to accommodate the metastasizing socialist vision of unconstrained Democratic government under what may become the Third Republic.
