Since seeing all the red flag warning signs from the 08 campaign and the left's agendas since Obama, I made it a point to educate myself more into the realm of government politics and in particular our Constitution. What is coming to light to many Americans is the reality of humans still trying to achieve the utopian socialist state.
I find it somewhat mysterious that elitist egos incline to believe that their humanism theories can better the fate of mankind when all evidence from history refutes socialism as folly. Beyond folly, socialism or fascism or any form of totalitarian government has not given any evidence of a utopian goal and in reality has driven societies totally opposite of what would resemble a utopian state. History's humanism socialist folly has instead murdered 100's of millions of people; oppressed liberty; produced misery beyond comprehension and stifled the human spirit of the freedom that life offers.
I am thoroughly convinced that the founders of the American Constitution saw clearly the flaws of history's governments and meticulously crafted a constitutional law for a government to give all inhabitants of the country a reasonable chance to live within the birthright of their liberty.
To the article's point of going back to 1787 to regroup as to our Constitution's intent is right on the mark. We can make our brilliant Constitution better. We need to discover what is needed to amend our Constitution so that politicians are unable to usurp any Constitutional principles so as to prevent what is now at present happening. Something has slipped through the cracks that has given ideological power to get beyond the intentional Constitutional 'checks and balances.'
In other words, what has occurred several times in America's history has progressed gradually away from the restraints our founding fathers saw as real threats to human liberty. In other words, I think a lot of Americans are seeing better what our founders saw.
I feel that many of us would agree we are at a critical time for a renewed passion that inspired our founders into action. My thoughts have gone out to my state's leaders for action to initiate a second Constitutional Convention; to bring dire attention as to its intended principles and if need be bring amendments as the Constitution allows to further protect our liberty. I fear as I know many of us share; if we do not act with the virtue, integrity and courage as to the freedom our founders enabled for us, we will lose it to folly. Since Obama, have we not lost much to folly and the reality of more in the future?
