Why Democrats Hate the Constitution – Ep. 397

JOIN PETER at the New Orleans Investment Conference

Democrat Women Screaming in Agony

Brett Kavanaugh, over the weekend was confirmed by the Senate, and there were some Democrat women in the gallery watching the vote and they were just screaming in agony; that this was such a terrible thing. I don’t think we’ve ever seen anything like that.  They had to have the Sargent at Arms constantly removing people during the vote. The vote passed 50-48, on party lines.

These women were not screaming in pain because they think that a sexual predator is now on the Supreme Court, but apparently they think that Roe v. Wade will be overturned, and that abortions will be illegal in the U.S. This is all a bunch of nonsense. This is not going to happen. This is all much ado about nothing.

Liberal Judges Who Make the Constitution Be Anything They Want It to Mean

What it really all boils down to is that the Left wants a certain type of  judges on the Supreme Court. They want liberal judges who believe in big government and all these social programs. They want these judges on the court to have a loose view of the Constitution, that the Constitution means whatever you want it to mean.

What the Republicans want is to appoint justices who will uphold the Constitution – NOT their political agendas. There’s a reason for that. If you are a Conservative, you like the Constitution the way it is written. You like the law. If you are a Liberal,  you hate the Constitution. The Constitution is a roadblock to everything you want to accomplish.

The Constitution Was Written to Limit the Power of Government

Remember: the Constitution was written to limit the power of government. That’s where the laws apply. The Constitution is not about individuals. The Constitution is a law that was meant to apply to the government. to limit the power of the Federal government. To a lesser extent the states, because the Constitution does prohibit the states from doing certain things, but whatever is not prohibited, the states are free to do unless they are barred by their individual constitutions.

The Whole Principle Was to Have Weak Federal Government

What the Constitution does do is that it gives the U.S. government specific powers that are very few and enumerated.  The Constitution says that if the Federal government doesn’t have the power to do something, if it is not written in the Constitution that the government can do it, then they can’t do it. The whole principle was to have weak Federal government and most of what governments do was on the state level. They didn’t even want big government at the state level. Most of what the Federal government would do was in war time.

A Small Government Can’t Give People Free Stuff

So if you are a Conservative and you believe in limited government, well then you like the Constitution. But if you are a Democrat or a “Liberal”, you want to use the government to right wrongs of society. You want it to even things out, to redistribute wealth, to provide a social safety net, if you believe in giving people free stuff (free education, healthcare). A small government can’t give people free stuff. If you believe in Social Security and Medicare and Obamacare and the minimum wage, all that stuff is unconstitutional.
