As much as it seems like progressives hate the Constitution, we must not forget that it is the neocons – warmongering statists pretending to be conservatives – who continue to be the biggest threat to the U.S. Constitution. After all, if it weren’t for the neocons, Obama most likely wouldn’t be able to get away with his insane tripling of U.S. forces in Afghanistan since taking office. Not only are police state groupies & war-profiteering, national security hawks of the Right the very ones who have tortured the Constitution over the last few years, they are also the same ones supporting Obama in continuing the same atrocities. Anyone serious about supporting the Constitution and State Sovereignty should band together in outing the neocons as the anti-constitutional monsters they are.

Recently, some prominent liberals have made significant efforts to disparage the tenth amendment/state sovereignty movement as ignorant, fringe, rightwing nut-jobs.
But truly principled liberals* who desire a peaceful foreign policy are over looking how Jeffersonian constitutionalism of a limited federal government could actually help to halt the unnecessary U.S. interventions abroad. For an example, did Congress give President Obama authority to invade Somalia?
*I use the “truly principled” disclaimer to distinguish between DNC loyal media liberals who care as much about peace as GOP loyal media “conservatives” care about laissez faire from liberal activists who are sincere in their beliefs.
