A good article in the Minnesota post on how some politicians are jumping on the Tenther bandwagon – but aren’t the real deal. No surprise, of course, but nice to see this coverage. Here’s an excerpt:
You don’t have to be crazy, stupid or evil to believe that over the years, federal power has grown far beyond anything envisioned by the framers of the Constitution and far beyond the federal powers explicitly enumerated in the Constitution. I certainly believe it.
Where does the questioning end?
But it sometimes seems when Tenthers demand to see the Constitutional enumeration for something that Congress has done, they are usually using the logic of the 10th to oppose on constitutional grounds something they already oppose on political/ideological grounds. Do they believe in strict constructionism as an inviolable principle, or only when it advances their own agenda?
