Reading The US Constitution In Congress

Apparently, for the first time in American history, the Republican majority in the House of Representatives ordered the entire Constitution read aloud as one of the first orders of business of the 112th Congress. Since this blogger has a copy of the Constitution on my desk and I refer to it frequently, I believe it is entirely appropriate that every new session of Congress begin with the reading of the Constitution, to remind our elected representatives that ultimately WE THE PEOPLE are in control of our government.

Of course, there were Socialists in the House of Representatives who called the reading of the Constitution out loud a political stunt. There are many Socialists, including President Obama, who see the Constitution as a nuisance even though in their oath of office they are sworn to preserve and protect the United States Constitution as the law of the land. And now, to irritate the Socialists even more, the Republicans are requiring that any new legislation that comes before the House of Representatives must have a Constitutional reference attached. How novel!! That is a great idea that the Socialists just hate.

Socialists who prefer to ignore the Constitution often refer to it as a "living document", which has given them the license in the last 98 years to enact laws that violate the Constitution. Left wing judges, appointed by Socialists, have often upheld those Socialist laws under a liberal interpretation of the Constitution that was never intended by our Founding Fathers.

ObamaCare is at the top of the list as 20 State Attorney Generals are challenging the Constitutionality of the mandate in ObamaCare requiring all Americans to buy health insurance. If the federal government can force an American to buy health insurance, it can force an American to buy, or do just about anything. In fact, as an example, Obama's new Chief of Staff William Daley had said that Americans should be forced to buy hybrid cars rather than gasoline, or diesel powered cars even though they are not cost effective.

Our Founding Fathers constructed a brilliant governing document that was designed to limit the power of government because they understood tyranny. Unfortunately, Socialists in the last 98 years, since the enactment of the 16th Amendment to the Constitution, which allows for the federal income tax to redistribute income, have so expanded the powers of the federal government that the hand of Big Brother literally touches every single aspect of daily life and business. Our Founding Fathers would turn over in their graves if they saw what current and former Presidents, Congresses and the Courts have done to expand government and limit our freedoms.

It is clear that we must take back our country and as part of the process because our elected representatives of both parties have acted so irresponsibly over the years, we must add four Amendments to the Constitution, including a Balanced Budget, unless we are in a declared war, or other national emergency requiring approval of three fourths of the states, Term Limits for Members of Congress, Limits on Federal Taxing Authority requiring approval of three fourths of the states to raise taxes, and the Definition of American Citizenship to end the anchor baby problem that attracts illegal aliens to our country. A $14 Trillion national debt tells us that we need more checks and balances in place than are currently present in the Constitution. This is the case because our Founding Fathers could never have imagined the reckless, expansion of government that has taken place in the last 98 years.

In order to take our country back in 2012 and 2014, we must elect Conservatives at all levels of government that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and jobs in our country.

Most important, we must sweep these Socialists out office by electing Conservatives, who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current, or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren. We can do it. We must do it.
