Go here for the scoop.
I think we can say that the constitution reflected a enormous blind spot in this culture that carries on until this day and that the Framers had that same blind spot. I don’t think the two views are contradictory to say that it was a remarkable political document that paved the way for where we are now and to say that it also reflected the fundamental flaw of this county that continues to this day.
And he also believes that the Supreme Court should decide what the government must do for you (as defined by Obama and other lefties, of course):
The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf.
The man believes that the Founders got it wrong – that they didn’t set up a system Obama would prefer; a system, that is, where redistribution is the name of the game. Obama wants a government which decides the outcomes of life – and it must be kept in mind that if a government is going to “fix” the outcomes, it cannot allow people to be free. Obama is a socialist through and through, even if he refuses the label – but, then again, most socialists in the United States refuse that label, too, and insist we call them “progressives”.
Americans: do we want a President who thinks that the Founders got it wrong? Do we want a President who sees the coercive club of government as a magic wand to make us all happy? If we do, then Obama will be elected next week – if, on the other hand, we prefer to actually remain American, then we’ll vote for McCain.
