ARTICLE: The Constitutional Argument is the Weakest ArgumentSubmitted by George Strait on Tue, 05/14/2013 - 15:58
The Constitution, while a great document of high ideals, carries no weight in Washington, and little weight with most people.
The Constitution is not the law of the land any longer. We pay unconstitutional taxes with unconstitutional money, which funds unconstitutional activities everywhere in the world.
I'd like to see an end to the argument "That's unconstitutional" against blatantly immoral actions and dangerous precedents. The argument carries no weight with those in charge, and so long as the Constitution is ignored daily, will carry no weight with the people.
It's time to step up our game, and start examining WHY these things are in the Constitution, why they matter, and why they shouldn't be ignored.
The principles behind the Constitution are so strong, and the historical evidence of unlimited government gone awry so plentiful that there is no reason to make weak appeals to the authority of a piece of paper so few recognize as valid.
We have better arguments, and it's time to use them.
