Chains, what chains?

Last month, the second in blame of the Executive Branch of our great nation made a comment along the line that "the GOP intends to put you back in chains"   Looking at the group of people that he was talking to, I can only assume that he meant the chains of slavery that SOME of those peoples ancestors, at least 6 or 7 generations ago, maybe even 16 or 17 if you adjust for the current OOW birthrate among that demographic, may have been subject to.

I found an interesting quote of one of our founding fathers, that perhaps the GOP could capitalize on the words of Thomas Jefferson from 1798.....

" In questions of power, then, let no more be said of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution...."

I'm not saying that the GOP will fix all of the problems that they and the DEMs have inflicted on us over the last....100 years, but if they will bind themselves with Jefferson's chains, perhaps we could get somewhere.

There are many blacks in this country who believe slavery is still in effect. Of course, to them, slavery means being made to work for their checks.

As for the Constitution, some wonder whether it's still a relevant document. The Demoncrats ignore, violate, and abuse it, while the Republicans don't seem to pay much attention to it either. The result is of course, FUBAR!

I recall watching the confirmation hearings in 1987, for a truly brilliant man who was (at the time) generally considered to be the nations leading Constitutional scholar, Judge Robert Bork. He was a man who believed our nation had been pushed away from the fundamentals of the Constitution by the radical Left. He warned that if the Left's efforts continued, our nation and our society would be put at great risk. (obviously, he could see the future) He was nominated by, and a close friend of, President Reagan. What followed in the next weeks, was "the most" vicious attacks ever launched by the Left, the Demoncrats, and the MSM against one man. He was demonized and ridiculed beyond anything i'd ever seen back then, or since.

What good is the Constitution if courts manipulate it, politicans don't take it seriously unless it benefits their agenda, and radicals use it as they see fit?

IMO, the Constitution is not simply a document. It was the foundation this country was built on. And like with any foundation that is "messed with", it will eventually crumble and no longer be able to support that which it was intended to support.
