Romney's New Constitution: FedGov Can Do Whatever Beijing Is Willing To Subsidize

Mitt Romney's budget-cutting model is to ask: "Is the program so critical it's worth borrowing money from China to pay for it? And if not, I'll get rid of it."
On this construction, the FedGov is authorized to do whatever China is willing to subsidize, rather than being limited to what the U.S. Constitution permits.
~ Vladimir Lenin
A constitution merely prolongs the pretense that a political government can be limited by laws that it will interpret. Eventually, every constitutional government will embrace Lenin's ruling formula – "Power without limit, resting directly on force."
