The question is “What will it take to save the United States Constitution from becoming a discarded article, to be regulated as a document that will be remembered as ‘flawed’ in its conception of individual freedoms afforded to all?” Okay, what will it take?
Well, for those who are too blind to see that this country is about to go down the tubes, it’ll take a consensus of opinion on, first of all, what’s important. I’ve heard that the most pressing issue is jobs; no, it’s healthcare; wait, it’s Social Security, it’s the national debt, it’s an amnesty bill, it’s higher wages for teachers. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

I am not saying that the “stimulus” isn’t just another name for payoffs and kickbacks. After all, the Ship of State is sinking so it’s always the case for the crooks to empty the coffers................................
