"€œGod willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world
without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

“The Constitution represents a great compromise. It erected a stronger central government than that which had prevailed under the Articles of Confederation, but it promised a skeptical nation—one that had just spent a long and difficult decade throwing off the reins of King George—that the powers of that government would be sharply limited. Delineating and thereby limiting the powers of the central government is, in fact, the main function of the founding document. Is it accomplishing that task today? A government under the U.S. Constitution, to paraphrase columnist Joseph Sobran, would be a radical improvement over the one we have today.”

  • Oh how very well said!

    All part of the 'living Constitution' whereby we have apparently rescinded the 10th Amendment by the simple expedient of ignoring it.

    A point made in an earlier post; a pity the Left does not feel the same way as regards the Geneva Convention and terrorism, the former having been written long before the appearance of the latter. Does it not have to be interpreted in light of the changing times.
